Its a incredible story of men and sea and survival. i found it spell bond and could not put down till the end. It make you want to also read Moby Dick to see how this book influenced a man to make Moby Dick to tell the story with a different view.

This is a gripping & horrifying story of survival of the ship-wrecked sailors in the Pacific Ocean that took place in 1820 after the Essex was attacked by a whale. I read online that Ron Howard is set to begin filming the story in September. I'm not sure I'll have the courage to see the horror enacted on the big screen.
