5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Wife Saw Barracuda, 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost Wife, Saw Barracuda - True Stories from a Sharm El Sheikh Scuba Diving Instructor (Kindle Edition)
As a lapsed scuba diver who did my first dives in Sharm, I was drawn to this book. There are a lot of "me, me, me" books about at the moment, some of which are good and some are just somebody's diary that should be kept hidden away. This one, however, was a delight to read.

The over-riding arc of this book is the author's tale of teaching a group of students to dive. In between he tells various stories, both funny and very serious. He tells of his life living and working in Sharm and also some occurrences such as the bombing of Sharm in 2008 with him being on the scene at the time.

I was reading this on holiday and I hadn't dived for 5 years and was a bit nervous about going back in, but it actually made me want to go diving again, so we had a refresher lesson and a nice dive. Having read some of the skills he teaches and how the students coped with them actually helped me a little.

I found this a very enjoyable read. Would it appeal to anyone who hasn't been diving? I'm not sure, but I'd say probably as there are many tales about human character and less about the fish.
