      PAGE TURNING account of 3 people who capsized off the Pacific coast of U.S. Most interesting was the perspective of the fundamentalist 7th Day Adventist on board. What an eye-opener!

      This was such a fantastic read. I read it in 2 days because I could not lay it down. Such good writing and builder of suspense. This really happened by the way and I highly recommend this book. See if you can get a copy somewhere. It is about being shipwrecked and what happens when a man of faith, a man who is skeptical and a young woman are trying to fight for survival.This is a superb author.!

      This is a great book about 3 people lost at sea in a capsized boat--it's also about God and faith and what that makes people do. A must-read. This is the first non-fiction book to become one of my all-time favorite books.

      Imagine being trapped on a sailboat with Rick Santorum for over seventy days and you'll have an idea of what "Lost" is about. Lost is a very entertaining book but it seems to sacrifice telling the real trauma of being lost at sea for seventy days with little food or fresh water in favor of a constant debate between a true believer and an agnostic. I found the religious dialogue a little tiring, especially towards the end of the book.

      Like seeing an old friendFinding this long ago overlooked book by Tommy Thompson was like discovering an old friend has moved into your neighborhood. Everything I loved of his tenor and style burst off the pages. A powerful if disturbing story and a reminder of a huge writing talent gone way too soon.

      Captivating I read this book in a dayuldn't put it done. I am beyond amazed by the human endurance and fortitude of Bob Tininenko. Hard to believe he survived not by the mercy of God but by resourcefulness. Powerful book.

      Reading this book made me want to beat my head against a wall on numerous occasions, but it certainly was a fascinating read.

    • Patti says:

      Unbelievable!A very well written and detailed account of an extremely harrowing experience. Religion played a big part in the story but the test of survival played a key role.

    • Valerie says:

      I really enjoyed this book and could not imagine being lost at sea for that long. I think I would have gone crazy! I was surprised to learn at the end that it really happened and liked seeing the pictures. I flew through this book!

      I have read a lot of survival memoir books and the one thing that really stood out in this book was the focus on Jim's faith. His faith and love for God was unending despite the ordeal he was facing. I found it interesting how his faith in God directed him to make some questionable choices. This book also carried more sadness than most I have read.

    • Lee Yahnker says:

      Great story. The referrals to the Seventh Day Adventist church were a bit overwhelming. Both sadness and joy are revealed.

    • JoeNoir says:

      One of the best non-fiction books ever written, and tells you almost everything you need to know about human nature.

      Could not put it down! Captivating story of three people lost at sea. Very good read.
