Captain Phillips offered himself as a hostage in exchange for the safety of his crew, and so began a tense five-day stand-off, which ended in a daring high-seas rescue by U.S. Navy SEALs.

Couldn't stop listening
Brilliant book. For those who saw the film, the film jumped half way into the book. The first half is about Captain Phillips journey to becoming the captain and leader he wanted to be. Phillips is an interesting man with an admirable thought process. I loved hearing how he reasoned past events of his life and current events during the hijacking.
It's well narrated. George Wilson sounds just like Tom Hanks which I found quite funny. I wonder if that's a coincidence. He made the story interesting and I have misophonia so the pace and particular sounds is usually a deal barker for me. Wilson has a very smooth voice, good at expressing emotions making the story very personal.
I always find it easier to listen to books that a told from one perspective. Long descriptions which usually works well on paper doesn't translate well into audiobooks, in my opinion, so it was a relief to find a book that was told as a story from a personal perspective.

Interesting and engaging
What about George Wilson’s performance did you like?
The quality of the narration was generally very good. However, there were many long pauses suggesting a chapter break where in fact there wasn't one.
Any additional comments?
This was an absorbing book. I recommend it.
