5.0 out of 5 stars a true story of amazing courage and survival, 8 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was quite harrowing to read at times. What men are capable of doing to each other is mind boggling. This book describes real horror, being trapped in a boat with only the sea as a choice of escape - literally a choice of the devil or deep blue sea!! Yet, the author survived to tell the tale. I recommend reading this book as it shows that people had to survive the horrors of WW2 in more ways than I had been aware of.

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly enjoyable description of what must have been a very harrowing experience!, 12 Sep 2014
This review is from: The Boat: Singapore Escape, Cannibalism at Sea (Kindle Edition)
I thought this was well written and in common with all the books about this subject, very humbling in all that these people had to go through in order to survive. Hopefully the families of some of those who did not survive would get some peace of mind by knowing what happened to their loved ones as truthfully described by the author.
On the issue of a small disappointment with the publisher - at the end the book shows extracts of other books on the same subject but they are not available as e-books as far as I can find. A minor frustration which did not spoil my enjoyment of the book itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ticks all the right boxes, 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Boat: Singapore Escape, Cannibalism at Sea (Kindle Edition)
Quite an old book written in a very dated type format, very correct and to a degree should be anything other than what it is.

In years to come I would hope this would be considered a classic, its a very remarkable book in that it reads like fiction, but its not and blatantly so.

Gritty subject, beautifully told.
