Chapter three was big shocked for me and poor Phillip. Everything was wrong. Nothing worked as planned.
First of all, the “S.S. Hato” was torpedoed after tow days of left Panama. Passengers followed the officer’s instructions and directed them to lifeboats. In the meantime, Phillip was hit in his head. When he woke up he saw an old black man with a cat on the raft. He looked for the Hato and his mother, but nothing around him except blue sea and that accompany.
The black man called Timothy. He was strong, hopefully, and very very old. Phillip thought him west Indian. That was so difficult for Phillip. There was not enough food or water. The young boy who could not leave his father lost his mother too.
There were a few short conversations between Phillip and Timothy. But was not normal neither comfortable. Phillip remembered What his mother said about black people, as I mention that she did not like them. Phillip also blamed her for everything that had happened. Later at night, Timothy hunted a raw fish and cut a pic for Phillip. But the young boy refused it. He thought for this reason his mother said there different!
