It grew out of Edward Packard's Adventures of You Series, with its first manifestation being Lippincott's hardback release of Deadwood City and The Third Planet from Altair which, while not yet officially part of a series, featured the phrase "Choose Your Own Adventure" on the covers. However, it was when Bantam acquired the rights to release the books in paperback starting in 1979 that the series' full potential was realized, and the books almost single-handedly started the American gamebook boom of the eighties.

Survival at Sea is the 16th Choose Your Own Adventure book and is written by Edward Packard. It has Dr. Nera Vivaldi from CYOA #7: The Third Planet from Altair/Message from Space (depending on the book edition) in it. This book is unique in the series in that it focuses quite a bit on the illustrations by series regular Paul Granger. There are nine double page spreads of a drawing with little words and three double page spreads with no words at all. Yet surprisingly it didn't make this 118 page book seem to read any briefer than the typical CYOA book. The book is also laid out well so you're not flipping around unnecessarily.

The basic plot follows you and a small crew in search of a species of dinosaur thought to still be living in an area of the Pacific Ocean. However this trip meets with an unexpected detour when a volcano erupts on your sea route forming a new island as well as a nasty tidal wave.

Some of the decisions you'll have to make are:
How should you steer/angle the boat as the tidal wave hits?
Should you join a madman as he tries to claim a newly formed volcanic island as his kingdom, Maikoland?
Is it wise to lasso a sea monster and use it as a tugboat?
Should you burn the wrecked boat you've sought refuge in to attract the attention of a passing ship?

There's also a diagram with a few ship terms at the beginning and a map on one of the pages that can be used in two separate choices when plotting your course. This book felt a little darker in theme (one of your choices can result in the death of your crewmates) in a way that fit the story. The art isn't anything you'll find on the Sistine Chapel but it has a very dynamic feel to it. To fit the darker theme I noticed the artist did heavier shading in a lot of his drawing than he normally does. Overall this was a fun little book to read.

A few other things I noticed: The pages with large drawings on them are often missing page numbers and as a result I ended up skipping a choice and taking another path without realizing it until later. The only continuity flaw I really noticed was on one path a storm is supposedly about to hit but on the other path it never comes (though a suitably creepy ending replaces it). My first read-thru resulted in a happy ending but it felt underwhelming. For the most part though the endings are well done (even the more open-ended ones). The drawing of a great white (notably the only shark you encounter in the book) looks like a flying fish. Some jerk named Jason Lucus shows up in one path to either bribe you into signing your claim to an island away or to throw you off his boat. You never hear of him anywhere else in the book and, other than a crew member mentioning he's scared of "them", no explanation is given. But man, what a jerk.
