My rating: 4.4
I enjoyed this wonderful wild ride of a young boy who survives a ship going down and spends many months on a lifeboat. I admit that the beginning and his quest into religions was a little tedious but, once I got past that, it was very enjoyable. I am amazed that, instead of tedious, this author could make this book about almost the same subject for the entire book to be so delightful. I am curious to know if the movie measures up.
