Overwhelming story

by margaret b on Apr 26, 2012

I was overwhelmed by this book - it is a docu-fiction well-researched for the facts and very human and very touching. It has made me want to read more by Sebastian Junger.

Perfect Storm

by werve on Aug 14, 2008

The writer did a marvelous job in going from the facts of the storm, The mens past lives ,how the ship was built and the different types of fishing vessels, The way the ocean acts in a storm and the intensity of the storm. It gives you a gut wrenching feeling almost as if you are living it, I would recomend this book to everyone.I would rate this book tops.

excellent

by emmagrace on Mar 23, 2007

An account of several people whose lives were affected (some fatally) by a storm off the northeast coast of the U.S. in the early 90's. The storm was essentially a hurricane, the extremely unlikely result of three storm systems' merging off the coast of New England. The strength and location of the storm caught many people off guard, and Junger's accounts of people who survived the storm or were involved in rescues at sea are riveting. He also provides interesting background on meteorology, seafaring, and the fishing industry. Junger is an excellent writer, and I highly recommend this book.
