I was surprised to read in the epilogue that they ended up living on Colibri for 15 years. I should say that the book does not go into the vast majority of that time frame, although I believe there is another book that follows on from the first.
I always find people's motivations for chosing this lifestyle the most interesting part - I got quite bored with the detailed description of the refurbishments of the boat - although I understand that others might find that the most interesting part! In the end, the decision to stay afloat was made for them, when their house in England developed a structural fault and became worthless - the book does not say the outcome of that - we do not learn whether the insurance paid out in the end (I guess not).
I'm sure anyone one with an interest in alternative lifestyles, barging, or canal boating will find this a moderately enjoyable read.
