The Fourth Fisherman

Joe Kissack did such a wonderful job writing this story. Before I started reading I wondered how he was going to connect his life and marriage to the three Mexican fishermen, but Kissack managed to do so flawlessly.

The story pulled me in from the very beginning and I sat down and read the whole book in just one night. I loved how Kissack effortlessly switched back and forth between the two stories. It was intriguing to read about the fisherman and how they survived along with how Joe Kissack “survived” as well.
I really enjoyed the epilogue. It told where each of the fisherman where today as well as the author and his family. The last line is, “I am the fourth fisherman.” I think this is a perfect last line and it sums up and ties the whole story and metaphor of the book together.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
