Stranded: A Novel
Noah Cabot is working as a deckhand on his father-in-law’s ship going to resupply an oil drilling platform. Along the way they become beset, their ship completely trapped by ice. A thick fog surrounds them, and they can just make out a shape in the distance. With all communications down, their only option is to head for the shape and hope they can call for help. Most of the crew has come down with some kind of sickness, which for some reason doesn’t affect Noah, so he leads those who are able in a desperate attempt at survival. But what are the mysterious shadows they keep seeing, and what are they walking toward? They all know their fate if they become Stranded.
The imagery was great in this novel. You could almost feel the chill of the ice as well as the fear and desperation. The only thing that could have made this book better would have been simply more of it. I would have liked more of an explanation and more of an ending. However, it’s a fun read that gets you thinking about what you would do if faced with the chance to have a different life than the one you have.
