The Perfect Storm

Title: The Perfect Storm
Author: Sebastian Junger
Publisher: Recorded Books
ISBN: 9780788734274
Why Read?: For Fun

Thoughts: The description of this and the previews I have seen of the movie led me to believe this was about a fishing boat - the Andrea Gail - braving, and eventually succumbing to, the Storm of the Century.  It is about that, but it is about so much more.  Not only do we follow what it must have been like for the crew of the Andrea Gail  in their last moments, but also what it was like for others stuck on the sea during Hurricane Grace and what it was like for those rescuing them.  Junger also presents a lot of scientific facts about storms, drowning, and survival.

Rating: 3 stars
