Grace Winter, 22, is both a newlywed and a widow. She is also on trial for her life. In the summer of 1914, the elegant ocean liner carrying her and her husband, Henry, across the Atlantic suffers a mysterious explosion. Setting aside his own safety, Henry secures Grace a place in a lifeboat, which the survivors quickly realize is over capacity. For any to live, some must die. As the castaways battle the elements, and each other, Grace recollects the unorthodox way she and Henry met, and the new life of privilege she thought she'd found. Will she pay any price to keep it? The Lifeboat is a pause-resistant novel of hard choices and survival, narrated by a woman as unforgettable and complex as the events she describes.
It looks interesting and I want to listen to it but at $21.99, I won't be first. I learned that lesson. Why are audiobooks so much more expensive than regular papaerback? It makes no sense to me. They should be less expensive. I'd be glad to read, listen and review but for a lot less cost to me.
Too High of a price
I agree with Leslie, audiobooks are way to high in price! Audiobooks should be less expensive than the physical book!! Doesn't make sense.
Worth the expense
Of course audiobooks are more expensive - and totally worth it. Not only is this a well written and compelling read the audio version makes it thoroughly entertaining. The narrator conveys the drama perfectly in her tone and I was hooked from the very first spoken word.
