READ ñ MIAMIMOTELS.US ´ Ruthanne Lum McCunn DOWNLOAD Þ Sole Survivor A Story of Record Endurance at Sea Ecords A classic saga of ordeal and survival that reminds us of the courage strength and resourceful intelligence of which human beings are capable Tillie Olsen author of Tell Me a Riddl. This book is a pretty well written account of an amazing ordeal what it lacks in literary complexity it makes up in the fact that it was a real story You can really imagine yourself being stranded and alone in the middle of the sea while reading this Towards the beginning it is a bit hard to read because you want to scream at Lin for all the mistakes he makes but he gets smarter and you really feel a sense of pride when things go right When things go wrong though you really feel sad and angry Overall this book was a good book but not for everyone if you think you would like a survival story with some interesting racial undertones then this is the book for you
