My Thoughts on Out At Sea by Aiden Merchant
The main character, Denver, has recently joined a a fishing crew doing odd jobs on the ship. While still getting his sea legs and dealing with freezing temperatures, Denver is spooked by thumping noises. His cousin, the captain, tells him that it’s just the waves hitting the boat.
But when the caption goes on deck to take a look and doesn’t return, Denver fears for the worst.
He could never have imagined the reason why he cousin didn’t return…
This is a short story that packs a major punch! The author sets the scene immediately and dives right into the action. I was so hooked! I was so nervous about what was going to happen next with each and every scene!
My Favorite Passages from Out At Sea
**SLIGHT SPOILERS BELOW**
Denver tried to speak but found that he couldn’t. He was panicking now, the cold rushing down his throat and burning his insides.
He thought nothing of the sound at first, but then a chill shot down his spine. Something in the air had changed, getting his attention. A warning.
His torso had been torn open and devoured like a baked potato, leaving chunks and blood all over the floor.
