I hesitated to jump into this book as I expected it to be on the dry side. I was wrong! This is easily the best book on tape I've ever heard. It kept me riveted the whole way through. I found myself making up reasons for small car trips so that I could listen to more of it! Even the portions of the book where there is a lot of research going on are exciting because of all of the discoveries that are made. Once you understand things the way the divers do it makes each trip to the wreck much more exciting!
The book starts out with some overly melodramatic writing - so much that I was tempted to abandon it. But I stuck with it, and either the writing got better, or I ceased to notice.
Once the action starts, the book is wonderful. It really makes you feel like you're 200 feet down with the divers, as the explore the wreck. Now I'm wishing that I purchased the unabridged version.
Awesome book! I think this is a great book. I love how the history came alive. The reader did a great job. The one bad thing is the "F" word is used multiple times. I have a 16 year old that would love the book, but can't listen because of this.
