One of the most obscure stories from the second world war you re likely to stumble across this book relates a Chinese steward s survival for 133 days in the Atlantic Ocean after his merchant ship was sunk by a U boat The author does a credible job of breaking up the monotony of the man s experiences on the raft with tales from his childhood and his wartime service aboard merchant ships but still survival non fiction only has so many places to go and when you re stuck on a raft with this guy the selection of material is pretty thinThe story is readable and it s short It does not have the extended agony of Unbroken for example where the survivors endured so long in a lifeboat only to be captured by the Japanese If you re looking for something different in survival stories during the war this might be for you and it has the virtue of featuring the culture of a Chinese man and how he approached survival perhaps differently than an American or Brit would haveOne aspect I did note is that he seemed to have little to no sense of having lost valuable shipmates or any concerns over the fate of the others on board his ship at all Understandably he was not treated well as a Chinese crewman but one would think he d have some thoughts about the other stewards aboard the ship Certainly no sense of survivor guilt seeps through the storyPoon Lim holds the dubious world record of longest survival at sea a record I m certain no one wants to attempt to break He seems to have lived well after the war and to have looked back on his ordeal as the great event of his life rather than as the torture it must have been at the time

This book is a pretty well written account of an amazing ordeal what it lacks in literary complexity it makes up in the fact that it was a real story You can really imagine yourself being stranded and alone in the middle of the sea while reading this Towards the beginning it is a bit hard to read because you want to scream at Lin for all the mistakes he makes but he gets smarter and you really feel a sense of pride when things go right When things go wrong though you really feel sad and angry Overall this book was a good book but not for everyone if you think you would like a survival story with some interesting racial undertones then this is the book for you
