What is the message of the stranger in the lifeboat?
The idea of the stranger in the lifeboat – we’re all in a lifeboat getting by with what we do and there’s a force with us. If you believe in nothing, have no hope, that force is always going to be a stranger. If you believe in that good, it can become the thing that you lean on that ultimately saves you.”
Did Benji survive the stranger in the lifeboat?
Our narrator is Benji, who worked on the yacht as a deckhand. He’s deeply troubled — not only by his impending death at sea but by his failure to stop the yacht from being blown up. But for days, weeks, months, he survives on rainwater and barnacles to write hundreds of pages to his beloved about this adventure.
How does The Stranger in the Lifeboat end?
Towards the end, when Benji mourned the death of the sea bird, his grief for his wife and his survivor’s guilt – for the lives of all the others who had been lost from the lifeboat and cruise ship – completely overwhelmed him.
