5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling read
From start to finish I found this book to be very desciptive. Not only durimg the expenditions but the time spent on shore; gathering materials; preparing the raft; preparing the crew; JH's analysis of individual crew members' reactions/ways of coping whilst isolated at sea with little or no lifeline.

Fantastic book well written made me feel as though I was on the raft as well facing all the dangers, challenges and high points. Greatly admired the author and all his fellow sailors and support crew. In short one of the best adventure books I have ever read.

Had me transfixed through-out. Made excellent reading. The only disappointment, was coming to the end.
A real gritty, factual and astonishing read. Would certainly recommend it to those into Non-Fiction 'Adventure' exploits.
A truly well written book.

A great read. This is a very honest account by the author. Often things go not to plan, or even disastrously wrong, but he persevered long after many would have given up. A true adventurer!
