The camping trip. Thought her dream was a bit too long. Was hard to follow.

I actually liked both stories, though Sara's was the most unusual and stood out a little more in my mind.

I enjoyed the present day story. It had plenty of layers of complexity. Sarah's journey went on too long and became a distraction.

personally i found the parts narrated by Sarah to be confusing, especially at first. It was hard to keep all of the names straight and I really had a difficult time grasping what was happening until they were in the boat. And then they were pretty much always in the boat. That got tiresome for me despite some of the crazy events and the vivid descriptions.
