    Islands, Oceans, and Dreams is a true story of a man who, at the age of 33, began dreaming of voyaging with his wife to the South Pacific. He wasn't an adventurer or daring by nature, but he bought a boat and began learning the ways of the sea. Twenty years later, racked with the pain of divorce and still aching to live out his dream, he set off alone for Tahiti. After reaching French Polynesia, he continued cruising for seven years and wound up solo sailing around the world. Islands, Oceans, and Dreams takes the listener on that voyage.

    John S. says: "If you're into maritime adventure"
    "Great story telling, you get lost in the trips"

    Story
    If you could sum up Islands, Oceans, and Dreams in three words, what would they be?

    Great light autobiography of the author's adventures as a sole sailer around the world.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Michael - he is the main character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The trip up the red sea - its tense and slightly humorous as Michael fights the wind and his own imagination of pirates.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    somewhere in the middle when michael comes to terms with his solitude and appreciation for his life.


    Any additional comments?

    its a great story read by a great narrator.. its worth the credit to download and get lost at sea with him.

    This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

    Think about this says: "I was consumed by this story!"
    "My first Audible RETURN - Terrible Narration"
