I loved the writing style of this author, can't wait to try out some of his other work. I found myself looking forward to the moments when I could sneak away to be alone with this book. It seemed to drag at the beginning for me, but really picked up when the journey in the lifeboat began. I'm not really very squeamish, but I found myself cringing at some of the stuff that happened. I was rather disappointed by the ending, but all in all a good read.

The thing I love about Sinbad is that he manages to be hilarious without being filthy, something rather rare in the comic world it seems. Sinbad has an outlook on life that will put a smile on your face and have you chuckling at all kinds of every day stuff. If you could use some perking up, this book's for you!
