The facts behind the story
Reviewed in the United States on May 1, 2019
After watching the movie, 'The Perfect Storm', I wanted to read the book. This book is not a novel. It's a very informative book on all sorts of things that lead up to and surrounds the very events that took place during this period of time. It gives you the ins and outs of a vast amount of items that either did play a part or could have been a contributing factor in the events as they unfolded. It's not an uninteresting book but it does take away from the Hollywood version of what is more a story of imaginations wrapped around a true event. It certainly doesn't add the glitz and glamour to a profoundly heartbreaking story. It does not glorify death, but rather speaks to the facts instead. If you want to know the truth about what MAY have happened, this is a great book to read.
