A Sailing Adventure...

The Great Wide Sea by M.H. Herlong

The Great Wide Sea

By: M.H. Herlong

Genre YA Realistic fiction

Pages: 288

Published: 2008

Read: January

3.5 out of 5

This book started out slow, but definitely picked up at the climax of story. Unfortunately and to my great disappointment, the climax is revealed in any published summary of the book. While a father and three sons are sailing the father disappears and the boys have to survive by themselves. The characters are well developed and due to that I felt much anger for the father and sympathy for the sons. The father is extremely hard on his sons and expects a lot from them, especially after their mother just died in a tragic car accident. If you like adventurous sailing books, this is a great read. If you cry easily at books, be prepared.
