Just a quick note on a great read. Following Maamari's crew on their voyages from the snug comfort of my sitting room and bravely resisting the temptation to peek into the last chapter, I had the permanent feeling of wishing that I could have been there with them.
A pleasant break from reading fictional sea adventure stories, as the author (authoress?) narrates the daily events in a natural style and a breath of fresh - sea - air from the complex heavy literature that we're all suppposed to be reading if we have the time.
All in all, a pleasant read, and a harmless exercise in self-discipline to see if you can resist the temptation to peep into that last chapter. But a word of warning: once you're there, you won't be able to put the book down till you reach the end. Looking forward to the sequel.
