This story completely captured me. It is the story of a man who survives for over a year marooned on a lifeboat in the open ocean with a live tiger on board. There is a really great explanation for how he finds himself in this position, which is amazing to read about. Although it is fiction, there are so many parts that ring true. The start is a bit slow, but still entertaining, and the author really takes his time introducing the character to you, so that later, when he's on the lifeboat, you understand more about who he is. If you read only a few books in your life, read this one!
