Trippy

At first confused, thinking it was a memoir, then saw that it was humor. Much is based on real experience, and knowledge of the industry. So it's a blend, like a fruity Caribbean drink. Have been on many cruises, and written about them. So I appreciate the insider look. If you think of this as a bawdy Love Boat with added art knowledge you come close to appreciating the offbeat nature of it, ably narrated.

Ship for Brains

Ship for Brains continues Brian David Bruns’s Cruise Confidential series. This second installment continues the true life on a cruise ship. I liked the first book of the series, but seemed to like this one to be more fun. I laughed out loud quite a few times at some of the antics that happened among the ship. Gary Furlong does a good performance in the audio version bringing the words of the book to life.
I am giving Ship for Brains three and a half stars. I am interested to see what else happens on the ship next in the next book of the Cruise Confidential series, Unsinkable Mister Brown.
I received the audio version of this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Amazing & funny. Didn't realize this was going on.

Didn't want to stop listening. The story that goes on behind the art on ships is amazing. Can't wait for his next book.

RECOMMENDED

Hilarious and shocking. I couldn't stop listening. Well written and performed. I'm definitely getting the rest of the series.
