It's hard to imagine anyone not enjoying this adventure/character study of a man set adrift in his little rubber life raft after the sinking of his boat out in the middle of the nowhere. It's one of those page turner type books where you can't wait to hear what happens next. If you need to get a good nights rest, don't start this book late in the evening! The book offers much more than a survival story. It takes you into the inner reaches of the human mind and emotions. It helps one to appriciate the relative calm of our circumstances by comparison. For example, I learned to really appriciate the value of rain/water after reading how precious it is when you are faced with not having it. Everyone I've lent this book to has enjoyed and benefited from it's reading. It has the power to change the way you look at the world both within and without. Why they haven't made it into a movie is beyond me. A must read! Highly recommended!
