Description

Before The Perfect Storm, before In the Heart of the Sea, Steven Callahan’s dramatic tale of survival at sea was on the New York Times bestseller list for more than thirty-six weeks. In some ways the model for the new wave of adventure books, Adrift is an undeniable seafaring classic, a riveting firsthand account by the only man known to have survived more than a month alone at sea, fighting for his life in an inflatable raft after his small sloop capsized only six days out. “Utterly absorbing” (Newsweek), Adrift is a must-have for any adventure library.

    This was a great book to read. Even though you know the outcome just from reading the title, it still pulls you in right from the start! Kudos to Mr. Callaghan for defying the odds!

    I thought this book was a very good book. I had to read it for summer reading for school. So sometimes I had to force myself to read it since I had to finish it by the end if the summer. It was very boring in most parts since he was just floating in the middle of the ocean for a lot the book. But this books also did teach me about the importance of life and how you if you just keep on pushing that extra little bit you will make it. So overall I thought it was a good book.

    Quite inspirational, and the fact that it actually happened makes you realize that life's struggles can be overcome, slowly, with patience, ingenuity and a lot of work. Truly a great book.
