    Drawing on historical documents and contemporary accounts and on exclusive interviews with Carlsen's family, Delaney opens a window into the world of the merchant marine. With deep affection, and respect, for the weather and all that goes with it, he places us in the heart of the storm, a "biblical tempest" of unimaginable power. He illuminates the bravery and ingenuity of Carlsen and the extraordinary courage that the 37-year-old captain inspired in his stalwart crew.

    Andrew says: "Well written and read"
    "accent"
    Overall

    The book is good, but the narrator's accent troubled me. It took me nearly one hour to get used to it. On the contrary, the narration by Anthony Heald (Shattered Air) & Joe Barrett (Ten Hours Until Dawn) cause me no trouble at all. Finally, after I got accustomed to his narration , I started to enjoy this book.

    Story

    On the evening of July 27, 1985, five hikers made a fateful choice to climb Yosemite's fabled Half Dome, even as the sky darkened and thunder rolled. By night's end, two would be dead from a lightning strike, three gravely wounded, and desperate EMTs would be overseeing a harrowing midnight helicopter rescue.

    T. Chambless says: "Had me on the edge of my seat"
    "Good to the last word"
    Overall

    This book is one of the five best books I ever listened. The story is attractive and the narrator's performance is great. I wish I can give it six stars.

  • Lost in the Amazon: The True Story of Five Men and Their Desperate Battle for Survival

    Story
    (1)

    In 1995, Stephen Kirkpatrick joined a five-man expedition into the remote jungles of the Peruvian Amazon. Kirkpatrick's assignment was to document an area of the rainforest that had never before been photographed, or by most accounts, ever explored by white men. Within hours of their departure, an inaccurate map and a series of bad decisions leave the group hopelessly lost in the depths of the Amazon jungle.

    Wynn says: "Great story, annoying reader."
    "breathtaking adventure"
    Overall

    I like the way Kevin King narrated this book, and I also like the story. You don't have to agree with me, I'm just expressing my opinion.
