Reviews

A fascinating, action-packed account of long-term survival on the open seas. Very inspiring!-- "ABC News (Best Book of 2015)"
"A spectacular triumph of grit over adversity, 438 Days is an intense, immensely absorbing read."-- "Booklist"
"The best survival book in a decade.-- "Outside"
[A] harrowing tale.-- "New York Daily News"
Jonathan Franklin is an American journalist, but it is with a novelist's eye for detail, rather than a reporter's matter-of-factness, that he gives this gripping saga the chronicle it deserves...it unfolds like a rollicking adventure story...remarkable...reminded me of both Yann Martel's Life Of Pi and William Golding's Pincher Martin, yet tells a tale that is nothing if not astoundingly, engrossingly singular.-- "Daily Mail (UK)"
