Title: Not without hope

Author: Nick Schuyler

Publisher: William Morrow

Copyright: 2010

ISBN: 978-0-06-199399-2

Type of book: Non-fiction

Setting: Off the coast of Florida in the Gulf on a capsized boat

1st Sentence:

I could not have my mother come to my funeral.

This is the emotional story about four guys (Nick Schuyler, Marquis Cooper, Corey Smith and Will Bleakley) who set out on a fishing trip and after a capsized boat and forty-four hours passage, only the author was alive and pulled from the water. The story was gripping and emotional and deserved a higher rating, but the writing and editing was terrible.

To whom would I recommend this: Lovers of survival stories and stories of the elements like INTO THIN AIR by Krakauer or THE PERFECT STORM by Junger.

My rating: 3/5
