Sharks in the Runway
Sharks in the Runway: A Seaplane Pilot's Fifty-Year Journey Through Bahamian Times!
This book is definitely a memoir. Mr. Harding does not leave out any details of his life from a child to an adult. I have never been to the Bahamas, yet after reading this book I felt like I had just came back from there as well as the other places that Mr. Harding visited. I could see the charm of why Mr. Harding did not leave the island.
I must admit though that while I enjoyed reading this book, I felt like there was almost too many details. It was a lot to take in at times as I found myself struggling a bit. This is because there were some moments that I found more interesting then others. Therefore, when I got to the moments that were a little less interesting to me, the pace of the story slowed down. For me, it was mostly when Mr. Harding spoke of his times in the plane. I am an aviation fan. So for me, reading about people flying fascinates me. I have been in a regular plane but not a seaplane. I would like to some day go in one. For anyone who enjoys reading memoirs, you may want to check out this book.
