5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I have read this year, 1 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Walking on Water: A Voyage Around Britain and Through Life (Paperback)
For me a good book is one that I can't put down because I need to know what happens next. Well this was such a book. I started reading it on a plane, we had actually landed driven up to the gate and people started getting up to take their things off before I even realised we had landed...I was so into it. I then stayed up to the wee hours to finish it.
The book weaves the 3 stories together as a novelist would craft a thriller - which results in a compelling, well written tale. This is a true story of how one man overcomes adversity following a swimming accident which sees him wheel chair bound. He then goes onto achieve more than most do in a life time, but not just for himself - he contributes hugely to improve the lives of others. It is a very honest book written with no sense of feeling he is making himself out to be a hero - it is very self effacing.
This is a book that even if you are not interested in sailing is inspirational and well worth the read.
