It's nice that the narration involved both the sea and land as well. I was unaware that this was part of a series and I'm looking forward to reading the other book.

This book was better than I expected it to be, and I felt like it lived up to my expectations. It was a good story, and it isn't a story I would normally read, but I enjoyed it. I will note that the characters all sounded the same, and this made the story semi-flat. There were multiple POV's which also made it hard to keep track of who is who, and the characters mostly sounded the same With this being said, it was still a wonderful read with few errors and a gripping plot. If you're into sailor stories and Indian tribes, this one is for you and I recommend it.

I loved the book and would rate it 4 out of 4. As much as i know very little about the sea world, it was an enjoyable read and thrilling.

Adrift is 3 out of 4 stars book. I liked characters to describe this sea adventure and how the story balanced each side of the battle between keeping nature pure verses the ability of a company to bring jobs to the community. I disliked the detailed operations of maneuvering that it took to hook Seattle Express to tow it back to land. This book would appeal to people that enjoy sea fare adventures and to naturalists that want to protect the natural environment.

I like adventure stories, they appeal to me as a traveler. I've never traveled much on the sea though but I love the topic as well.

This is one of those books that is very engaging. If only I have the time to read it on one sitting, I would've done it. I like the story, suspenseful and makes you symphatize with the characters.

The genre was so obvious from the get-go yet the pace was slow but once it gets good, I couldn't stop reading.

I haven't gotten far into it, but so far I am impressed. I like seeing courage exhibited and people relying on their faith to get them through tough times. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a weekend read.

This sounds like a great read for people who enjoy the sea. There is a bit of drama and so this helps to develop the storyline and keep readers interested. I will put this on my 'to read' list.
