4.0 out of 5 stars recommended, 28 Oct 2012
This review is from: Sinbad Voyage (Paperback)
I read a lot of travel books as well as novels, have travelled widely, and am familiar with some of the South East Asian locations in the latter part of this book. The book leaps off the page, and is a wonderful account of a sea voyage in a medieval ship recreated for the voyage. But perhaps the more inspirational aspect is that of the interaction between the crew of European scientists and Arab sailors and the Indian and Asian people they meet at their landfalls. In the internet age it is truly wonderful to read of the human warmth, curiosity and hospitality that can happen when technology is deliberately discarded, and it reminds us of real human qualities. A marvellous book.
