History • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1942

The Raft is a soldier’s straightforward report of his thirty-four-day ordeal adrift in a tiny raft in the Pacific with two other men and almost no equipment or supplies during WWII. The story is engaging by reason of its remarkable events, rather than any felicity of style or depth of reflection. Assuming the almost self-effacing character of a seasoned trooper, Tom Parker lets events speak for themselves, without adding gratuitous melodrama. His qualities as a seasoned reader make for effortless listening. This isn’t a display vehicle for the performer, but it’s a well-projected document of compelling interest.
