Oh, Ship

Inside the Book

Author: Lori A. Moore
Publisher: Tate Publishing
Pages: 134

Cruises can be quite the adventure within an adventure if you keep your eyes open and watch the little dramas that are going on among the several thousand passengers and crew members aboard the ship. Reading author Lori A. Moore’s true tales of things that happen on the high seas will have you saying, “Oh Ship!” From stories of passengers pepper-spraying other passengers to grown men fighting over glass figurines of penguins, you’ll laugh until your ribs hurt.

My Review

I was really looking forward to all of the laughs that I was sure I would find reading this collection of short stories. I was still waiting after reading about a dozen of the stories. Sadly this collection was not as funny as I had hoped for.

Some of the stories I liked better than others. What I did like was the facts about some of the different locations like the Eiffel Tower has 120 antennas on it, the US Army had a Camel Corps back in the late nineteenth century stationed in California, and Shanghai has the largest bus system in the world to name a few. Also, the travel tips were very informative and helpful for the next time that I take a trip anywhere. As I stated, even if this book was not for me, I still would like to take a cruise someday.

I also expected there to be a lot of anecdotes and humour!
