i really wanted to like this book and in the beginning it was quite funny - his description of when they all go and see the penguins for the first time is hilarious!
if only this book had more of that and less about how the cook feels about the housing manager. B-O-R-I-N-G.
give me more adventure, PLEASE!
also, at times, i got a vaguely sexist and homphobic vibe from this guy.
