What made me stop reading this book? Was it the unlikeably dumb female lead? Was it the bland and repetitive narration? Maybe it was both. I've never been stranded on a life raft in the middle of the ocean, thank God, but I like to think I'd be a bit smarter about it. Like - not just discounting the instructions in the f***ing survival manual out of hand because somehow you're smarter than it is?! Good grief, this girl!!
