    One thought on “One Girl One Dream”

    1. I have rated this book 4 stars , as it is quite inspiring. One has to admire Laura for her achievement at such a young age. However it reads like a ship's log in many places and will certainly not be up for any literary awards! Watch Maidentrip and other Laura Dekker clips on You Tube

    2. What a determined young lady! Unbelievable what her and her family went through with authorities to make her dream come true. Easy to sit back and think no way would I let my 14-16 year old sail the world solo. However, she clearly had the training and skills to do just that with the love and support of her family. It is hard to let our children grow up and not depend on us, but if you've given them the tools, they can flourish. While there was plenty of sailing terms through the book i didn't f [...]

    3. A fine example!Laura did something that most people could only dream about. Many more people would be scared out of their wits to even go beyond the site of land!I'm proud of her accomplishments and her determined spirit!Keep on going girl!

    4. Als het verhaal van zeilmeisje Laura Dekker je interesseert is het een boek wat je achter elkaar uit leest. Maar houd er rekening mee dat er soms wekenlang op zee weinig gebeurt. Mij heeft het niet gestoord.Het boek wat door haar oma is geschreven over het jaar dat voorafgaat aan Laura's vertrek waarin de Nederlandse staat en media haar fanatiek tegenwerkt, is vast sensationeler, maar dat heb ik bewust niet willen lezen. Lijkt me te frustrerend.

    5. Interesting read if you are into travel logs & sailing! I was keen to read her story after hearing her on interviewed on National Radio. She is the youngest person to sail solo around the world. The Dutch goverment did everything in their power to stop her. Pretty amazing to sail single handed at 14/15!

    6. Inspiring story! I have great admiration for this girl's bravery, though, it was obvious that it was written by a child. Though her journey was exciting, the writing was not so much. I did enjoy the movie very much.

    7. I didn't finish this book, it was so bad and boring. It's the story of a 14 years old girl who wants to sail around the world, it could be good BUT it's just a complain about the Dutch government, and a holiday story.

    8. Pretty easy to read since her enthusiasm for sailing was crystal clear. An amazing story about an amazing feat. A bit too much harping on about how hard done by the Netherlands authorities, but all the rest I enjoyed.

    9. i thought it was a great story of how you can achive your dream, the beginning of the book was great and very interesting but towards the end I got bord as it was very repetitive.

    10. I thought the book was amazing because it explained all the things she did while she was out on her voyage. It made me feel sometimes a bit like i was there with her.

    11. Amazing girl, amazing adventure. Didn't read entire book as I am not a sailor I found it a bit repetitive and couldn't relate.

    12. I enjoyed it, but found it did tend to feel a bit like ships log entries sometimes. I think with practice her writing will become fuller and I hope to read about Ms Dekker's further adventures.
