    This book reminded me of confidence. All 8 men that were aboard the three rafts were all working together. I would definitely recommend this book.

    Hi Mathwizz,
    Please be kind when you comment, even if you disagree. I don’t believe anybody is ruining the story, as the book is clearly described as a survival story.
    If somebody ruins the ending or gives away too much of the story, we do not approve the comment. In this case, I felt that the comment(s) were appropriate.

    In this book, eight men crashed in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with only three rafts. I was really surprised to find out that the eight men ended up living even though they were left at sea for three weeks. A good book in my opinion.
