ISLAND OF THE LOST -- the 400th review

The four hundredth review is quite a milestone.  There have been long, thoughtful reviews, short snappy reviews, and strange reviews (an outstanding one being the video trailer of his own book that somebody posted).  So it was natural, I suppose, that I wondered every now and then what the 400th would be like.

And it's great.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT survival story: Second only to Endurance and other tales of Shackleton's voyage, September 26, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Island of the Lost: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the World (Kindle Edition)
Great read, very factual and not dramatized. Very interesting to hear about the history of shipwrecks on a remote island on the cutter route, and especially to read of the dichotomy between an organized crew and a disorganized crew, and how they fared so differently on the island.

If you are a sailor or adventurer, I highly recommend this read.
