Review

"The best survival book in a decade."--Outside

"A spectacular triumph of grit over adversity, 438 Days is an intense, immensely absorbing read."--Booklist

"This riveting adventure has us in its grip, spellbound and eager to know more about the mysterious Salvador Alvarenga...His story of resilience, ingenuity, and grit is an unforgettable true-life adventure."--BookPage

"[A] harrowing tale."--New York Daily News

"Jonathan Franklin is an American journalist, but it is with a novelist's eye for detail, rather than a reporter's matter-of-factness, that he gives this gripping saga the chronicle it deserves...it unfolds like a rollicking adventure story...remarkable...reminded me of both Yann Martel's Life Of Pi and William Golding's Pincher Martin, yet tells a tale that is nothing if not astoundingly, engrossingly singular."--Daily Mail (UK)

"As this old world pursues its endless journey round the sun, many are the tales of death and disaster on the high seas. Few indeed are those that tell of near-miraculous survival, fed by human courage, faith, strength and intelligence. This is one such."--Roanoke Times

"A fascinating, action-packed account of long-term survival on the open seas. Very inspiring!"--ABC News (Best Book of 2015)
