Thrilling and compelling..., 11 avril 2013
I've just finished reading "Coyote lost at sea". I loved it! Very compelling and thrilling at the same time... Despite knowing the fatal issue, I couldn't get off reading, Mike's life being so "on the edge", I always wanted to know what would happen next and how he - and his family- would face the most often tricky and dangerous situations. He's definitely a hero, the new "Indiana Jones" as we called him here in France. Amazing how he was trying to achieve something always more challenging...
Reading the chapter about the first Vendée Globe was especially moving, as I've had the great luck to be there with Mike's parents. My brief encouter with Mike before he got on board was a great moment, we all knew this race was very special.
"Coyote" is a very well-written book, I will re-read it again sometimes later... It should be translated into French as sailors are national heroes here. Sure Mike's competitors and sailing fans would love to read this story...
And happy to know that Mike's spirit is still living through the fund his parents set up.
Great Job Julia !
