    " Thank God for the Coast Guard. It's hard to imagine today that just 50 years ago the Coasties were going out in small, open wooden boats. The next time I'm on the Cape, I want to go to Orleans and see the CG36500 for myself. "

    " The Coast Guard is awesome, and this book gives yet another account of how brave these men and women are, putting themselves at risk to save people stranded at sea. If you like any of Tougias's books and liked them, this one will be a good read for you, too. "

    " Great quick read on Cape Cod and Coast Guard history "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 11/25/2013

    " this was a gripping read. if you like books a la John Krakaur, you'll love this book. Survival, adventure, nautical disaster, heroism, written concisely and entertainingly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 11/18/2013

    " 4 STARS. GREAT STORY, BUT AUTHOR RAN OUT OF MATERIAL AFTER THE FIRST 120 PAGES. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pancha | 9/7/2013

    " The book focuses on one storm in 1952 near Chatham, MA, but also includes flashbacks to other storms and history of some of the main players.. All that flashing around made the narration seem disjointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cape Fisherman | 7/28/2013

    " Michael Tougias has an uncanny ability to fastidiously research every single facet of events then recount them in an interesting, suspenseful manner. The Finest Hours is just another example. If you love the ocean and heroic stories, pick this book up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 5/24/2013

    " This is an interesting story. I like historical books like this. It did bog down a bit with details that weren't related. If the author had just stuck more to the story, I think I would have liked it more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/28/2013

    " I picked it up to read for a half hour before making dinner tonight and could not put it down. I read the first five chapters and can't wait to read more later tonight. "

    " Amazing true story and extra interesting for me because it's local (all happened off Cape Cod). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Holland | 8/16/2012

    " These are amazing and humble men. The story is told in a good style, almost novella like, packing a lot in but not getting too detailed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aurora | 7/31/2012
