An incredible story of survival, the most harrowing part of the book was the telling of Zamperini's 47 days at sea after his B-24 bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean. The three survivors survived on captured rainwater, small fish eaten raw, and birds that landed on their raft, all while fending off constant shark attacks, nearly capsizing during a storm, and being strafed multiple times by a Japanese bomber. #maybookflowers #bodyofwater

#BodyOfWater Most of this book takes place on the sea. A detailed account of the tragic whaling voyage that inspired the novel Moby Dick. #MayBookFlowers @RealLifeReading

Reviewsbylola I've got this on my TBR! 2y
SusanInTiburon I'm gonna read this right after I finish Moby Dick! (No lie; more than halfway through!) 2y
JessClark78 @Reviewsbylola @SusanInTiburon I read this a few years ago and thought it was really good. 2y

Spent the last few days playing a fun game of "Flu or Food Poisoning?" while keeping an eye on all the flood coverage. Thankfully my neighbourhood hasn't been affected. Water is scary, man. #bodyofwater #maybookflowers

Robothugs Oh my goodness. 😧 I hope you're feeling better and there's no flooding! 2y

A wonderful book, my first by Simon Winchester. I highly recommend if you're interested in or travelling to China. I read Pacific recently which was also superb. #maybookflowers #bodyofwater

Hooked_on_books I've read several of his books and I've yet to be disappointed. I would try anything he writes. 2y

And so that I don't miss a prompt, even if it's a day late, this should have been my #bodyofwater #maybookflowers pick yesterday. This is a contemporary set Laurie Graham: Enid accompanies her lecturer husband on a cruise he's due to speak on and discovers that he - and her marriage - may not be all they seem.
