    I must say that I really enjoyed this book and went on to read the whole series I did not like them as much as the first Narrow Dog, but they hang together as a charming trilogy.A lot of people have mixed opinions about the prose style and punctuation of the Narrow Dog books, so I would strongly recommend looking at the free samples before purchase They won t give much o

    The story may be interesting and amusing but I have given up on it because of the ridiculous way it has been written so I won t ever know What is wrong with conventional punctuation Here speech and prose merge into a single amorphous jumble of text and it s really difficult to read and re read to get the sense I have given up in irritation.

    This won t make any sense whatsoever unless you re a narrowboater don t even try You just won t get it If you ARE a narrow boater, or know someone who is, buy it immediately and then buy the 2 sequels Darlington is a masterful author His style is slightly surreal, almost stream of consciousness in places The stories tell of heroism, extreme cowardice, failing limbs and failing engines, s

    I had heard excerpts on radio and thought the premis of sailing a canal narrow boat from the Midlands, across the Channel and down through France to the borders of the Mediterranean was brilliant However, whilst the book was entertaining and humorous in parts, I did feel that it lost its way and became a bit samey So overall, sonewhat disappointed.

    I read this book when it was published, lent it to someone and it wasn t returned don t you really hate people who do that afraid I won t lend any, buy your own or go to the library, my books are precious And so I forgot all about it Then the next one was published and I wanted to reacquaint myself So I bought a new one and it was as good on second reading I am sure we all want to be intrepid wrinklies

    I love this book It s funny, poetic, moving The author s style is unique and very engaging I found The crazy adventure they embark upon is just fascinating, and the characters they meet along the way are great, especially when the French they speak is translated literally Just wonderful And Jim is a superstar.

    I felt this was rather egocentric an all about me type of book the words me, my and I come up with dreary frequency It almost seems to be written in a sort of shorthand I felt it didn t flow, but felt choppy and repetitive For me, it was just irritating and I didn t finish it because I didn t want to give any of my time to it, but clearly I m in the minority because other reviews are enthusiastic.

    Bought this book after reading a recommendation on a yachting forum It said something like Don t buy it for the boating tips, but for the flavour of France, and for a damn good read It didn t disappoint at all Terry s unique style is a welcome diversion and turns this travelogue into a personal diary record His disregard for the normal rules of punctuation, for me, add to rather than detract from the chuckle making adventures
