    "I was scared to death reading this book. Not because it was scary, but because I am afraid of the ocean. I was able to put myself in the main characters shoes and I was terrified. The author did a very good job of detailing the story very well. "

    "This highly rated novel, 'In the Heart of the Sea' would be among one of the best audio books to listen to by Scott Brick. From many positive reviews, Scott Brick delivers this story almost perfectly as his talent allows you to get lost in the story. "

    "I think I can really sink my teeth into this book. The true story behind the "Moby Dick," sound exciting. I have a good sense of reading a portion of a book and deciding whether it is good or not. This one peaks my "Spidey" senses!"

    "While I enjoyed In the Heart of the Sea, it wasn't exactly what I was looking for in a survival book. I really wanted a wilderness survival story instead of a sea adventure. It was a decent book - it just wasn't the right style."
