A book review from The Movie Snob.
The Lifeboat, by Charlotte Rogan (2012). This is a pretty good novel. It’s a first-person narrative by a young woman named Grace. In the short prologue, we find out that (1) she survived some sort of oceanic disaster in a lifeboat, and (2) she and two other women are about to be tried for a murder allegedly committed on said lifeboat. The rest of the book is her account of the disaster. She spins a pretty convincing tale, but she’s clearly someone who always looks out for Number One. Can we trust her account of events? I found the book well-written and even hard to put down.
