Good Points
Enjoyable. It is funny, informative and conveys the sense of fear and the appalling effects of sleep deprivation well.

Bad Points
I find it hard to believe the author was able to remember the conversations as well as he purports to.

General Comments
Redmond O'Hanlon, Trawler is a good read and as noted above gives an apparent insight into the lives of the deep sea fisherman.(I would like to know the crews' reaction to the book!)The characters are facinating and well drawn. Despite concerns over just how well he can remember some of the conversations some of the snippets are brilliant.

When likened to Worzel Gummidge the author is pleased they have read it but the crew pour scorn on him.. they've seen it on t.v.!

As to just how accurate it is I don't know but it is an excellent read!
