    One thought on “Evangeline”

    1. A luxurious boat sunk. A few passengers could save themselves, on a little boat, surviving days without food and water. But how? And how far can one go to stay alive? And whose fault was the accident of the "Evangeline" in the first place?Gripping, exciting and a very good read. This little book questions ethics and the moral of men, without trying to lecture.

    2. This book is devastating, but fascinating. It makes you feel like a voyeur of the worst kind, and at the same time makes you thankful that you're not really taking part in any of it. As a reader, you spend almost the whole story in a courtroom as details about past events, for which the defendant is charged with murder, unfold and I was literally up all night because I couldn't tear myself away from the story. It's tragic, it's shocking, it's gruesome, it's heroic how can a situation be all thos [...]

    3. Evangeline, the finest ship of her kind, built to sail anywhere in the world, sinks in a ferocious storm off the coast of Africa. A single lifeboat with fourteen people crowded into it gets away. Forty days later, a thousand miles from South America, six survivors are rescued from the sea. One of them, the captain Vincent Marlowe, is charged with murder. His only defense is that it was necessary to kill some to save the others.I really enjoyed this story, especially in light of the recent sinkin [...]

    4. I was surprised at how caught up in this I became. Ostensibly a courtroom drama, a murder trial, told from POV of defense attorney. Raises, and handles, many interesting moral/ethical questions regarding murder "of necessity". Brilliant.

    5. Amazing!Amazing!Well written. The moral and ethical dilemma is hard to wrap your mind around. All anyone can say is they hope to never have to find out what they would do.

    6. Great book that kept me on the edge of my seat. VERY repetitive though. I'm not sure why the author felt the need to repeat the details of the boat accident ad nauseam. Quite a moral dilemma and I couldn't wait to read the outcome.

    7. The book was captivating from the very beginning although it got a bit repetitive. But the ending was riveting and it was a great read overall.

    8. I enjoyed this book very much, great story. If it hadn't been for so many repetitions I would have loved it.
