A story about this — 1 year ago
I enjoyed it mostly, but as a whole I think this book is not as amazing as the hype suggests. There are two distinct parts to the book, and they seem almost completely unrelated. The story is introduced as a story that will “make you believe in God”, but that whole arc seems to be abandoned half way through and is never concluded. The story changes into a survival story which is rather interesting and I did really enjoy it. But I felt the book was completely ruined by the ending. I found it to be completely unnecessary and left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
If you are going to read it, I recommend skipping the ending. Stop when you get to the part where he gets to shore. The rest doesn’t add to the story at all.
