I regularly don't understand the algorithm that Amazon uses to recommend books to me. It tends to heavily recommend books based on the last book that I bought and then goes overboard, without considering the genre and type of book under that genre that I read.
I believe that algorithm is the cheapest thing that Amazon has used, which brings me to a recommendation that actually WORKED.
I loved this book; it is based on a real story and you can not believe how these men survived (not all of them ..........) shipwrecks at this remote island in the seas between Australia and Antartica.
Lowed it !!!
