Review:

"'One of the classic survival stories of all time - a story of the will to survive against impossible odds'" * Daily Mail * "Read's powerful account of the crash and its aftermath...what lingers are the moments of ingenuity, and the resilience of the human spirit." * Guardian * "'It is inconceivable to me that this story could have been better told... a masterpiece of narrative'" -- Graham Greene "Read handles the story so well" * Evening Standard * "An adventure story with a rare depth." * Seven *
