There is also a part I liked a lot on standing vigil. Tom and Sarah decided to go and stay with Myra for the night. It showed a lot of love that the two had for Myra and also for William. It is quite hard to find someone who will sacrifice for the sake of a friend.

My favorite aspect was the sea voyage jargon and theme. I just love the ocean and boats in general. My least favorite part was the religious discussion. I found it rather shallow and presumptuous. The book would be better without it, in my opinion.

My favorite part was when Myra and Sarah were in the sweat lodge and Sarah looks over and tells/asks Myra the bear between us was big wasn't it? That part had me actually smiling. :D :D :D My least favorite scene was when they radioed over to the tug to tell Louise that Larry had passed away. It was sad to read. Those were my favorite and least favorite parts, but the entire book was a great read. I enjoyed it so much.

I think my favorite part of the book was seeing how all the story lines intertwine. Going through a horrific experience like this somehow ties people together and I found this true with the book.
My least favorite part was reading about when Larry’s hand and foot get severed. It just made me cringe the whole time.
I love books that have intertwining story lines. It was really interesting to get so many perspectives.

Yes and I think the author did so well with all the different viewpoints. I never felt confused about who’s viewpoint it was.

Bringing out the power of positivity through women is what drove me close to this read.

Undoubtedly, William's survival was my favourite . Louise's lack of trust in Larry just set me off, it was so annoying

My favorite part was the successful return of Seattle Express by Warhorse, even though it was not sure then that they would get anything. It was a winning moment for the underdogs despite the death of a crew member.

My least favorite part was when William was found. It felt too rushed, and it lacked emotion.

My favourite part of the book was Williams survival. Larry's demise would make my least favourite part.
