    Actual Rating 1 StarTrigger Warnings Alcohol abuse, physical abuse I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own.I just want to get this out there right now if you have a phobia of rats or are at all uncomfortable with vivid and, at times, disturbing discussion of rats then you don t want to go near this book There are some things you can t unread.I don t think there is anything I liked about this book The characters were flat, even the main character who directly addresses the reader on many occasions The writer is creative in some ways, but it needed serious editing There were typos and misused words everywhere Beyond that, there were so many inconsistencies, plot holes, and just things that don t make sense that they were impossible to overlook.There was almost no plot For most of ...

    I d like to thank NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review even if my review is not a positive one The story for Out on the Drink was fine, if a little oddly paced You spend a good 80% of the book kind of drifting pun intended until suddenly BAM everything happens all at once and you really have to keep up if you don t want to miss everything And even then, you ll miss things, because a lot of points just aren t explained as clearly as they could be For example and I d say Spoilers but , why did the people are Carly s party send Sean to the cruise ship Did they intend to have him stranded in the middle of the ocean, slowly dying of thirst and starvation When what s his name said I m going to save your life did he intend to actually help Sean with his drinking problem Did they plan any of this, or were the really just going to give Sean that bottle of gin if he succeeded It s all very confusing And by confusing, I mean convenient And that may be my biggest problem with the story Everything that happens in the story is convenience Sean conveniently gets stranded at sea although I m still calling possibly pre meditated attempted murder from Sean s classmates , Sean conveniently finds such and such items on board, Sean conveniently gets rescued, and then pirates a...

    Reviewed for Netgalley If you can ignore the many, many typos, misspellings, missing words, and misused words, Bill Bunn s Out on the Drink is an engaging, unique tale which follows young alcoholic Sean on his biggest, dumbest blunder yet In the middle of Newfoundland snow storm, he accepts a dare to climb aboard an abandoned cruise ship, where he promptly passes out and awakens much later to find that the ship has torn aware from its moorings and is adrift on the ocean.Sean must learn not only how to live without alcohol, but how to live alone on a decrepit ship with little water and food that expired almost three years prior to his misadventure His very survival depends on it.Bunn did a nice job with the pacing of the story Sean s stint aboard the Lyubov Orlova slows the momentum a bit, but I think that was intentional to show how long Sean is stuck aboard the cruise ship and how lonely he is during this time The pace d...

    I am reviewing this book for Bill Bunn, Biting Duck Press, and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review.I usually like adventure survival stories but I found this one so hard to get into.
