    Story

    On November 23, 1942, German U-Boats torpedoed the British ship Benlomond, and it sank in the Atlantic in two minutes. The sole survivor was a second steward named Poon Lim, who, with no knowledge of the sea, managed to stay alive for 133 days on a small wooden raft.

    Michael says: "Suspensfully Calm"
    "Let's exceptional occurance slow and tedious."
    Overall

    I have read (or listened to) at least a dozen survival books. Unfortunately this one was the worst.
    Not once in the entire story does the author give you an idea of the progression of time. Surely the poor guy is keeping track some how.
    Also, the fact that a person in the navy has no survival training is never addressed.
    The best part of this book was knowing that when you got to the end you were sure he was going to make it.
