The Boat, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime... Johnny and his new bride Clem have arrived in Turkey for a year's honeymoon.

Young, blissfully happy but poor, they are surviving on love, luck and a spirit of adventure.

So when a boat appears out of a raging storm, crewed by a bohemian couple who represent everything Johnny and Clem want to be, they do not think twice about stepping on board.

But all is not as it seems. And when they finally open their eyes to the truth, the boat is in the middle of the vast open sea...

With echoes of The Beach, this is a hypnotic, emotionally charged novel about two sweet young lovers who lose their innocence in paradise.

Review by

Many thanks to the team at Head of Zeus for sending me a copy of this fantastic book to review. The cover of this novel is rather subtle and doesn't give too much away, but the tagline "They thought they had been rescued. They were wrong" really made me want to open and start reading immediately! I found the writing style natural and easily readable and the plot good. The story held my interest throughout and was the perfect length. Characters Johnny and Clem are likeable and believable, adding to my enjoyment of this book. All in all, a jolly good read
