Attention all Shipping by Charlie Connelly,
This review is from: Attention All Shipping: A Journey Round the Shipping Forecast (Radio 4 Book of the Week) (Paperback)
With a title like this I would never have bought this book but as I always listen, without always understanding, to the shipping forecast a friend bought me "Attention All Shipping."
It is a delightful book, full of humour and well written. The author is not afraid to put himself down and/or laugh at his mistakes. I have learnt a lot about the areas and I think the description of his seasickness was the best and funniest I had ever read, His visit to the Isle Man will not be forgotten for quite a while nor his writing about S.Utsire and N.Utsire.
I recommend it to any one over 15years of age as a funny, lively, informative book that Granny and Grandpa will enjoy as well. I am 75 years of age and not easily impressed but this year I have bought it as a present for my 40 and 49 year old nephews and for a young, intelligent man of 20. I am glad I was given this book.
