“...Unrelenting tension and suspense.”
KRILL AMERICA - Buy the eBook Instantly... KRILL AMERICA - Buy the eBook Instantly...
Adrift   in   the   sub-freezing   temperatures   of   Antarctica’s   wintry   Southern   sea   the   crew   of   the Krill   America,   an   aging   research   vessel,   struggle   to   survive   a   series   of   unexpected   and catastrophic   events   which   forebode   the   immanent   disaster   of   the   Krill America   and   her   entire crew. As   the   story   begins   the   fishing   vessel   is   suddenly   flooded   by   a   tsunami-like   tidal   wave   caused   by   an underwater   earthquake   which   propels   it   onto   the   jagged   edge   of   a   glacier.   The   ship   is   smashed,   leaving only seven partially shattered survivors of the original sixteen crewmen. The   story   of   Krill   America   depicts   the   life   of   Maximiliano   Villanueva   (Max),   an   elderly   Mexican   seaman, and   the   chief   engineer   of   the   ship   who   is    manning   the   Krill   America   on   what   is   scheduled   to   be   her   final journey.   Max   is   badly   hurt   and   believes   he   is   facing   his   own   death.   The   author,   Ray   Palla,   juxtaposes   the gradual   demise   of   the   Krill   America   with   the   life   and   increasing   age   and   disability   of   Max.   Thus,   as   the story   enfolds,   it   reveals   itself   as   an   allegorical   tale   where   the   Krill America   is   seen   as   a   symbol   and   type   of   Max   himself   as   man   and   ship each   face   impending   death.   The   underlying   allegorical   theme   is   woven   throughout   as   a   backdrop   to   the   account   of   unrelenting   tension and   suspense    as   the   persistent   efforts   of   the   crew   to   save   the   Krill   America   from   sinking   and   to   save   themselves   from   the   prospect   of perishing are repeatedly sabotaged by a continuous succession of disastrous failures. The entire story is rampant with symbolism. KRILL AMERICA is essentially the story of one man’s redemption as seen through the person of Max.
