A Cosmic Hipp-ster
... and waiter, please send a glass of the red to Mr. Harbinson, on my tab.
12 June 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Harbinson first snagged me bigtime in 1980 with his based-on-the-factual novel "Genesis". I've since read the others in that series. And ever since seeing Michael Palin's "Around the World in 80 Days" the romantic in me has thought it might be a great experience taking a freighter cruise - the hullabaloo of a typical cruise ship cruise really isn't my kind of deal. Besides illustrating his cruise experience, "All at Sea ..." provides an interesting window to the man who wrote the PROJEKT SAUCER series. Like another reviewer, I endured his prostate laments perhaps more than necessary. And Allen, try saying simply "I like my wine" instead of driving the phrase "vin rouge" into the pretentious ground. (It seems in each of Harbinson's books there's one word or phrase he falls in love with and uses over and over and over.) Otherwise, I found it an interesting and informative read - wished I could have been along for the trip.
I feel as if I traveled with him

I love travel essays, especially ones on freighter travel. W. A. Harbinson does a great job on conveying to the reader what it is like to actually travel by freighter. I felt as if I knew the crew and the Captain after the first few chapters. However, since he was on the ship 6 weeks (most freighter cruises are 80-90 days) he only described a handful of ports of call. I wish he had stopped in more places. Lastly, I think his fixation on his 60 year old prostate problems became a little grating by the middle of the book. He also cursed quite a bit, which I thought was way overboard...no pun intended. If not for these last two items, I would have rated it with 4 stars. Overall...a good read.
