Quick Review: Adrift by Paul Griffim

4/5 stars

A compelling, thrilling, and quite saddening survival story about five teens who went to sea at night and then found themselves suddenly trapped in the ocean fighting for their lives. It is very well-written and the backstory of the two main characters, best friends Matt and John, is also very affecting and somehow quite parallel to the suffering they’re enduring on the boat for so many days.

It’s like watching a movie with that constant feeling of worry and suspense over which of the five teens will break down or fall first and how it will happen. The psychological aspect is depicted very well and I thought the pacing of the plot is perfect. It’s a short read actually which I think is smart because stories like this when dragged unnecessarily tend to be dull. Definitely a recommended YA survival story. I do not find a lot of those so I’m glad I came across this novel.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
