    I picked up this book after seeing the movies White Squall which is based off of this book Unfortunately, there are almost no similarities between the book and the movies aside from the ship sinking Maybe that disappointment altered my opinions of the book, however, if I m going to read about a ship sinking and people dying, I wanted to feel something for the people involved That does not happen with this book It is basically an account of all of the different places that the ship went on its last voyage There is no emotional connection to the people on the boat and the horrifying experience is over in the blink of an eye It is fascinating to read about the different places visited and to hear about their experiences but there s no connection Maybe it was too hard for the author who experienced it to live it again, but it does the book, the people involved, and the experience a diservice Then again, this book is called The Last Voyage and that s what it s about the voyage, not the final moments You simply have to know what you re getting into and I had wrong expectations.

    I enjoyed this book I wish I was as aware and sharp as Chuck when I was 17 I have a thing for adventure yarns Particularly marine and whitewater river running This one was entertaining and amusing Don t take that the wrong away, please It s tragic but Geig is an upbeat kid with his whole life ahead of him after the disasterous sinking He expresses his sorrow admirably at the loss of a third of the ship s complement who became than friends but family But his irrepressible exhuberance is contageous too I remember being that young and I envy him this singular life experience I ll never have Reading The Last Voyage of the Albatross is the next best thing I will say this Throughout the book I kept feeling that I wish Ridley Scott has not embellished so melodramatically I wish he he had filmed Gieg s story the way he told it Particularly his adventures in the Galapagos Islands This was the point of the voyage to follow in Darwin s footsteps and learn If you like adventure this one will deliver Easy read too.

    The Albatross was the home of The Ocean Academy, a sea going prep school Travis s dad was a student sailor on the ship This book is, in part, his story.It s hard to remember this story is written by a 17 year old mid westerner the adventures of the students on the Albatross were fantastic, but their horror was equally so.I m looking forward to reading White Squall, the novel based on the events of this ship.
