    "Adventure seekers and non-adventure seekers alike will absolutely love this book. You will be completely swept away by the voyage. I think because it's a true story makes it even more engaging. You'll get history and humor along with this wild voyage. "

    "While Kon-Tiki is essentially anthropological in nature, this is not the best recommendation when looking for anthropology books. Thor Heyerdahl's journey across the Pacific Ocean and his take on the ancient Polynesian people is not the best book for those looking for a deep dive into the subject of anthropology."

    "Wasn't crazy about this book. I thought it was a bit bland and boring. I lost interest in it after the first few chapters, and it's been sitting on my nightstand for months now unfinished. Some of the pages we're also slightly torn when I received it. Not impressed at all."

    "Kon-Tiki is a great story not only of adventure but of the quest for knowledge. Man's desire to learn the truth at any cost, even risking one's own life, is the essence of science."

    "Such a cool read for me. This book whet my appetite for ocean travels. It was great to read about how the author duplicated an ancient Polynesian journey and was able to do so. Great read if you love long journey/voyage stories, I loved it. "
