It is a great book and not much to complain about except that I don't think it lived up to its hype. It is an Audible select, and 2 credits? a bit much. But it is a great book. Just wish it was only 1 credit.
If you dive, listen to this book. If you have any interest in submarines and shipwrecks, listen to this book. Excellent narration and an excellent book. Just the right amount of history to keep the story going without feeling like your in class.
I love audio books and have been listening to them for over 20 years. This was an average quality book and narration. The writing was factual, but a bit choppy. The narration was dry. I am not saying that this book is bad. I learned quite a bit about deep water diving and the risks involved, but was never really drawn into the story.
I listened to this for my book club. We were all astonished at how spellbinding this adventure was! Never a dull moment, plus we all learned so much about deep sea diving and the true grit one must possess to do this. The story is also an education on U-Boats and how they were used during WWII. I listened to it in my car while I was driving, which I don't recommend because the story is so gripping at times that it totally captures all your attention!
Very well read and produced. An amazing treasure hunt with it's share of great characters, tragedy and heroics. Great listen and highly recommended.
I really enjoyed this book and even did some extra study on U boats afterward. The reader isn't great and there are a few parts that drag. But, overall, it is a good book, informative and intriguing.
