This was not an enjoyable read probably one of the worst survival stories I've ever come across. The writing was hard to follow and filled with to many details that turned into dead ends that lead no where. For example Hardie's little secret box that just gets conveniently dropped over board into the ocean and then nothing more is explained about it.
Also it was boring and tedious having to read all the thoughts that went on in Graces mind, she comes across as a cold hearted, gold digger. Then there's the prison/court scenes which to me were as boring and tedious as the lifeboat.
This is one of those books that I had to force myself to finish I'm giving it 2 stars only because I read it in it's entirety.
