|User Summary:||Dr. Vivaldi asks you to accompany her on a search for the Arkasaur, a dinosaur which may have recently been sighted in the ocean.|
This book was always a bit of a personal favourite. It had three main plot strands: One where the entire ship and crew were exploring, one where you were in a life-raft alone attempting to survive, and one where you and one other crew-member were in the same life-raft.
The choices were generally interesting, and there was some quasi-realism regarding the requirements for surviving while floating in a life-raft. A number of the characters were well-drawn as well, with Maiko a delightfully pig-headed and sinister villain.
This is another excellent work by Edward Packard. It's challenging and creative, and its use of a map makes things a bit more interesting. This is also something of a sequel to The Third Planet from Altair since it uses the character of Dr. Nera Vivaldi.
Map usage is like adding the salt to a book. Sailing is the big focus here. And this one really keeps you on your toes.
