Antarctica, June 6th, 1998: 23-year-old Matt Lewis has just started his dream job: an observer aboard a deep-sea fishing boat. As the crew haul in their lines for the day, the waves seem bigger than usual - they are casting shadows on the deck. A storm is brewing. What follows is an astonishing story of courage and tragedy. Lewis leads the escape onto three life rafts, where the battle for survival begins.

rivetting, gripping, informative
Matt Lewis - he was the main character and he tells an incredible story.
Matt Lewis. Malcolm Hamilton did an excellent job, but being a South African myself we had a good laugh at the numerous South African accents he attempted - they are very hard to get right!
This audio book has had my whole family gripped - even my 11 and 14 year old sons. Such an incredible story and it is hard to stop listening. It made a long car trip fly by way too quickly.
Very boring, too much needless details, there are hundreds if not thousands of sea survival stories just like it.
This is an amazing story. The narrator is great. I was engrossed with it. The story also sheds insights into the fishing industry, how food arrives on our plates, and the sacrifices made getting it there.
