商品描述

媒体推荐

“For sheer drama on the water, it’s hard to beat the tragedy recounted in Rachel Slade’s Into the Raging Sea. . . . a fast-moving cinematic adventure. But for all of the drama, the worst scares are in the epilogue. This sinking was no simple accident.” (Janet Maslin, New York Times)

“A powerful and affecting story, beautifully handled by Slade, a journalist who clearly knows ships and the sea.” (
Douglas Preston, New York Times Book Review)

“Harrowing, moving...a taut adventure tale...The depth of research and reporting, and Slade’s skill at pacing and selecting the telling details produce a richly detailed narrative, tense and sad and true.” (
Boston Globe)

“More than the story of how a ship was overcome by a storm,
Into The Raging Sea is an allegory for what it means to be a part of the nation’s largely invisible working and middle class.” (Longreads)

“An exhaustive account of what happens when tragedy claims a vicious price for our progress and greed. Slade’s book is a chance to name . . . and call to the fore the forces that robbed these mariners of their lives.” (
Paste Magazine)

“A pulse-pounding,
Perfect Storm-style tale ... riveting ... a nerve-wracking, tension-filled narrative ... Slade re-creates the steady pile-up of mistakes that eventually caused El Faro to founder [in a] taut-chilling, and emotionally charged retelling of a ship’s final days.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Well-crafted and gripping . . . Slade frames the tragedy with a meticulous review of all the ways in which it could have been avoided . . . a painful and poignant narrative.” (
Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“A 
Perfect Storm for a new generation, Into the Raging Sea is a masterful page-turning account of the El Faro’s sinking, one that leaves you profoundly moved by the crew’s dedication and grit, and infuriated at the disturbing conditions that led to this tragedy.” (Ben Mezrich, bestselling author of The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook)

“Rachel Slade mashes up
The Perfect Storm with a suspenseful, page-turning thriller, cutting through the corporate double-speak to shine a light on how it was that thirty-three men and women sailed into Hurricane Joaquin. Superbly written, this deserves a place on the bookshelf of modern maritime classics.” (Robert Frump, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Until the Sea Shall Free Them: Life, Death, and Survival in the Merchant Marine)

“An extraordinary piece of reporting. I tore through it like a novel.” (
John Konrad, author of Fire on the Horizon: The Untold Story of the Gulf Oil Disaster) --此文字指其他 kindle_edition 版本。

The loss of El Faro with her entire crew of 33 on September 29, 2015, in the eyewall of Hurricane Joaquin, at the time a Cat-4 storm, was bad enough. Men and women have gone down to the sea in ships for thousands of years; many never came back. It is still possible to lose a ship today, and with no survivors to tell the tale, there is no tale to tell. In many cases, the wreck is never found even with modern side-scan sonar and other magical tech.

But the 791-foot container ship El Faro was different, largely because a dedicated and determined crew of investigators from many different agencies were not going to let the loss of 33 human beings go. They not only found the wreck 3 miles down, but they also found and recovered the Voyage Data Recorder and were able to retrieve actual conversations leading up to the sinking.

How could a 791-foot fully-loaded container ship sail directly into the eye of a Cat-4 hurricane in the first place? How was it possible that no one on board seemed to realize the danger, including and especially the captain? What was the captain doing? Where were the other officers?

What makes this wreck unique, and Rachel Slade's captivating book about it, is the dialogue: it is the real, actual dialogue, more than 24 hours of conversations right up to the actual moment she sank! The ship was equipped with microphones on the navigation bridge that recorded every word spoken by anyone on the bridge in a Voyage Data Recorder, exactly like the "black boxes" on airplanes. Even the story of the recovery of the VDR is astounding, all the more because the wreck was 3 MILES down! They had to find and locate an object the size of a bread box in a debris field amid a wreck that had torn the "house"---superstructure---apart and deposited some of it far from the hull. "Needle in a haystack" does not begin to cover it.

But they got it! And with the intact VDR and hundreds of hours of multiple ears listening repeatedly to isolate speech from the increasing cacophony of the hurricane, the investigators had a transcript of the entire day before El Faro disappeared with 33 souls. Rachel Slade has woven the entire story of the loss of a big ship with 33 lives around that actual, human speech. The reader learns to know these doomed souls. There are many books about actual tragedies, but often we can't fully relate to the honored dead as real; these people are real as can be, and the greater tragedy is that none of them needed to die. "Mistakes were made." I could hardly put the book down.
