Review: The Raft by S.A. Bodeen

The Raft - S.A. Bodeen

*I received a copy of this book through ARCycling so many thanks to them!*

My rating: 2.5 stars

Can I just start off that I read this book in the most horrible/awkward of times? I was on my way to NYC for the holidays and I decided to take a book with me; a book that if I needed to stop reading for whatever reason, I wouldn't die because of a cliffhanger. However, I forgot about the part where there is a plane crash and Robie (the MC) is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean on a raft. AND I read the plane crash of the book while *on* a plane. Talk about horrible timing.

There's not much to say about this story except that Robie is a survivor. She could have gone crazy and given up but whenever she felt like doing just that, she tapped into some deep and primal part of her that didn't allow her. She kept fighting for herself even when she wanted to give up. There a little surprise twist to the story that I enjoyed. I had picked up on some clues but I tried to keep faith right along with Robie.

Overall, it was a quick and enjoyable read but nothing too memorable. I won't be picking up this book again.
