3 out of 5 Stars
I received a free Kindle copy of Adrift by Brian Murphy courtesy of Net Galley and Perseus Books -De Capo Press, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review on Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my fiction book review blog. I also posted it to my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus pages.
I requested this book as the description made it sound interesting. This is the first book by Brian Murphy that I have read (and the last).
This book was well researched, but the author’s writing style was a challenge. He tends to drift off of the main story line frequently and then comes back to it. It is interesting when he is focused on the main story, but not so much when he drifts to other topics.
I had high hopes for this book, but it was a disappointment. Others found it much more fascinating than I did, so I will not tell you to give it a pass. But you may want to check it out of your local library before deciding to purchase a copy.
