"The Poseidon Adventure " was well written book exploring a very interesting aspect of human nature, how people behave when they believe they are about to die. Paul Gallico reaches into the depths of human nature and exposes the flaws and motivations in characters who begin their cruise as normal, dignified individuals...An enjoyable read.

Very interesting. The older movie version stuck much closer to the book than the newer movie version. It had lots of racial and religious aspects in it that were common when it was written. Strange to read those parts today. Some of it was dry and long winded, but overall very scary.
