|TITLE:||Better Than Ever, Again|
Ben Beck is a man who is waiting for his ship to come in. He is a man who is described as working many odd jobs while looking for a franchise deal that will put him in good financial standing. As of the opening of the book, it has not happened. His latest franchise venture did not work out and he is living on what remains of his savings.
It is at this point in his life that he spots an ad in the paper looking for sailors (no experience necessary) for a south pacific cruise. This would not be an unusual ad except for the fact that Ben did not live near the Pacific.
At the job interview, things just kept getting better (or stranger). Ben was told by the boat owner – Carl – that all of Ben’s expenses would be paid, they would sail for approximately a year, and then Ben would get 2% of the money made when the boat was sold.
Ben soon finds himself riding west with his new boss and two others to catch the boat that will be his home for the next year. This begins a year of Ben’s life that he will never forget!
Better Than Ever, Again is an action and adventure book. Mitch Davies has set it in exotic locations with colorful, memorable characters. The story flows well and has some rather unexpected twists.
There is some rather coarse language scattered throughout the book and some adult scenes. If these things offend you, then this is probably not a good book choice. If you don’t mind the adult scenes and language, then I think you will enjoy it.
