Pacific Odyssey - Lane's Story

Pacific Odyssey - Lane's Story is something of a travelogue with a deal of adventure thrown in. Also, it is a multi-faceted love story. It is set in the Far East, somewhere around 1970 - 1980ish, and involves some flying, eating, sailing and thinly disguised sex. Life aboard a cruise ship and a rowing boat, a native outrigger and some indigenous creatures (some will eat your windscreen wipers), are mixed up with some really nice people. I hope you will like them as much as I do.

Pacific Odyssey - Lane's Story
Professor Francis Douglas of Cork, Ireland writes: 5 Stars - A very interesting read.
As an academic I have spent most of my life reading. My reading has included PhD theses and academic articles and books as you would expect. As a former Merchant Navy Officer and keen yachtsman I have also read many books on sailing and the sea and, in addition, my reading has encompassed more popular books. It is in books such as those written by Penny Vincenzi that I can lose myself when tied up in harbour waiting for better weather. "Pacific Odyssey: Lane's Story," by Michael Harrington, is more in the vein of the latter than the former. I did lose myself in it and couldn't wait to pick it up and continue to read it whenever the opportunity arose. Woven through the story are technical facts about aeroplanes, ships and boats which ring true. The same could be said about the details of the area in which the story is set. It is quite obvious that the author has experienced many of these things at first hand and therefore what you read is quite believable. There is, however, sufficient fiction to set the reader wondering what is "fiction" and what is not, which is always the sign of a "good" book! My only criticism is the somewhat self deprecating remarks of the author on the back cover. The RAF would never have allowed him to fly their planes unless he was a competent pilot. The boats/yachts that he has owned would have been wrecked if he had not been a competent sailor. His ability as an author, as I have said, is not in question. This is a book that many should buy and I hope that they will do so. I highly recommend it. University College, Cork. August 2010.
