      A Story of SurvivalIn the treacherous Antarctic seas, two thousand miles southeast of Cape Town, lies a windswept archipelago that sailors name the Desolation Islands, and cartographers, Kerguelen.Here in an “ice-blue sea, vast, like a country of broken crystal strewn with snow”, a wooden square-rigged ship, among the last of her kind, is bound from Cape Town to Melbourne. Blown off course into the isolated waters, her crew sights a fine white steam yacht, the Gaston de Paree, her funnels ra [...]

      4.5 StarsThis author is amazing. "Beach Of Dreams" is my second book by Stacpoole (the first being "The Man Who Lost Himself") and it is very, very good. Don't let the title mislead you. This isn't some kind of island holiday where romance ensues while people sun themselves and drink tequilas. Thank goodness! Two ships collide, a steam yacht and a full sail fishing vessel. They sink, not too far from a particularly hostile group of islands with basalt cliffs, caves, bitumen pits and sea elephant [...]

      Free download available at Project Gutenberg.What happens when two ships collide in the ocean? The survivor crew managed to reach a deserted island and then.I won't spoil the whole story but I'lll only add that this book doesn't look like as suggested by its tittle, on the contrary. Even if some rescue measures for survival in a desert island has some implausible hints, the author managed to bring the plot in a realist way.Anatole France is cited several times along the narrative, specially his [...]

      I love this story! A wealthy young woman, being courted by a prince, ends up marooned on a wild and dangerous island, populated only by sea lions, penguins, and scavenger birds. Using her wits, along with some helpful stores from her life boat, as well as some life-preserving items buried and marked by some good Samaritan, she manages to survive for awhile, until depression overwhelms her due to the extreme loneliness of her situation. When she was nearly at death's door, a gentle giant of a sai [...]

      I'm a sucker for this classical author's works. Beach of Dreams is a romance novel which started off a little slow but soon caught the momentum of its sibling, the famous 'Blue Lagoon'. De Vere Stacpoole's work is definitely meant for those who like old-world writing, which at times can be quite descriptive and weighed down with adverbs/adjectives. Nevertheless, loved it, and read it twice.

      Before you go any farther, please understand that this book was written in 1919, before the idea of a book "romance" meaning relationships and love and sex. It is not that type of romance. This is a romance in the sense of the old French term "roman" meaning simply a fictional tale as opposed to nonfiction. The book is exquisitely written, with vivid believable descriptions and credible action and plotting and character development. It reads as if it is an autobiography rather than fiction, exce [...]

He was thirty-two years of age and he had used the sea since twelve—twenty [...]

      Well, this was a fun read. It's a survival story ala Crusoe, but a blood thirsty one ala Tarzan. It kept my attention! I liked the characters and wanted them to find their own kind of happiness. This short book had it all: man-vs-man, man-vs-self, and man-vs-nature. Well done book with good description and well drawn characters. It has some whiffs of unlikely to it, but bah, this was a story for the sake of story. The same whiffs curl up from Tarzan. The same great adventure thunders through eac [...]

      I'd give it ten stars if I could. One of the most wonderful books I have ever read. The section where Raft finds Cleo and saves her life is just magic. I can't recommend this enough.

      No estoy segura de recordar el momento exacto en que este libro apareció en casa, el tema es que terminó en mis manos y disfruté mucho de su lectura. La historia cuenta las peripecias de una joven que queda varada en una isla a causa de un naufragio y como resultado de esta tragedia su visión de la vida cambiará considerablemente. Si alguna vez tienen la oportunidad de leerlo, a pesar de que es un libro bastante viejo, no dejen de hacerlo.
