    I believe that The Perfect Storm is a better that "The Wreck of the Hesperus", because the action was more intense, the writer explained the characters more, and the story was longer. A strength of "The Wreck of the Hesperus" is that the poem had good form. Another strength is that it was short.

    The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger is a fascinating book that should stay in the curriculum. The book provides a highly detailed account of a storm that places readers in the center of the storm. Though the descriptions of fishing procedures and equipment are often confusing, they are a vital part of the plot. Without these details, readers would not be able to picture the dangers of the storm the way Junger wanted them to. The book is riveting, but never melodramatic. There is just enough te...

    Life in The hands of Nature The perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger presents the perception of risking one's life, to earn money in order to survive everyday living; through the men who take that risk, their families who endure great emotional distress while they await for their arrival home, which is not guaranteed, and the men of the Coast Guard and the Air National Guard who anticipate disaster.
