A friend recommended this book after hearing my praise for Unbroken about Louis Zamperini. I had mentioned that Louie spent over a month on a raft after his plane crashed and my disbelief at his incredible will to live. Adrift was written by a man who was much more experienced in the ways of the sea, his story was also amazing in what he endured. Below are a few of my favorite passages.

"The sea makes the insignificance of my own small self and of all humanity so poignant."

"These people do not know me. We don't even have a common language. How can they ever know what each step through my hell was like? Yet I have the overwhelming feeling that we belong to one another, that in this moment we see life as one. In their eyes there is a reflection of my own fate. The paths of our lives are separate, but the essence of our lives is together."
