They say, “those who wander are lost,” but Dreffin proved it wrong. She might have a different life, different adventure and different vision, but it doesn't mean she understood life differently. The only difference maybe, is that unlike some people, she knows exactly what she wants and how to get it.
Bluewater Walkabout by Tina Dreffin shows us how unique life could be. The book centers on their journey through the beautiful coast of Africa. She, together with her family created one of the most unforgettable moments of their lives. It may sound difficult, it is not enough to scare them. Tina insight fully narrates their unique memories, events, and difficulties they encountered. As the story goes, the thrill increases as they fight their lives on the wild side of the ocean.
Every book leaves us different lessons in life, and Bluewater Wakabout is no exception. Tightening family relationship, being there for one another, looking after the people you love, facing your fears, and listening to the beat of your heart are some heartfelt lessons I got from reading the book.
Though the author starts the story using flashback, she somehow relates it to the current happenings so that the reader won't be confused. Personally, I liked that writing style because it is unique and fun. It makes me think that I am solving a puzzle or trying to get out of a maze. The entertainment is there, my imagination starts to wonder. Dreffin is a great storyteller, I felt what they felt. She took me to her world through her book. I am impressed, it's not like any other memoir. Another factor which made me like the book is the content itself, I am an adventurer myself and I adore the ocean. However, unlike Dreffin I haven't had the guts to live on the ocean. Albeit my heart wants to be there, my mind doesn't seem to cooperate.
Because of its extraordinary savor, it best suits for anyone who loves reading. It's violence free and packed with excitement. Anyone could love the book especially those who enjoy family, thrill, and adventure themed books. So far, I enjoyed the book, my rating is 4 out of 4 stars.
