A really funny read -- my mind raced imagining the situation being described. Yet not so outlandish that they couldn't be believed.

It brilliantly captures the essence of the shenanigans that happen in the offshore oil industry and I find myself recounting my own stories and close shaves. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed!
The monkey on the fan bit is hilarious.
Hardly highbrow literature but will keep you entertained as some escapist fun.
