THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE is a tense and dramatic novel of a gigantic ocean liner—a floating Grand Hotel—and its passengers’ struggle to survive when bizarre disaster strikes at sea. It was the beginning of the end—seven o’clock on the morning of December 26. The Poseidon was homeward-bound after a Christmas cruise to African and South American ports. It was to be the final appalling voyage, a physical and spiritual nightmare endured by fifteen ordinary, yet eventually unordinary people. Trapped in a sinking ship for many dark hours of love, hate, and desperation, they face obstacles known only to adventurers who have conquered the far corners of the earth. At the end of their harrowing experience those who survive emerge wholly different persons from what they were before. All the humanity and understanding that have made Paul Gallico’s books beloved have been poured into this enthralling narrative. In this extraordinary novel, unlike anything he has written before, the essence of human courage and the unquenchable human spirit are revealed.
