    The Time Bandit is the fishing vessel that Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand use to hook the "deadliest catch", Alaskan king crabs and opilio crabs, in the Bering Sea, a dangerous body of water that can steal years from a fisherman's life. In pursuit of their daily catch, the brothers brave ice floes and heaving 60-foot waves, gusting winds of 80 miles per hour, unwieldy and unpredictable half-ton steel crab traps, and an injury rate of almost 100-percent.

    There are fewer than 400 fishermen of this kind in the U.S., and early death is a common fate. But the Hillstrand brothers are drawn to the drama and adventure of life on the high seas - this is their world.

    Andrew says: "Much Better Then I Had Expected"

    Overall

    I can't say enough for the story and the narration of this book. I felt like I was in the Alaskan waters with the Hillstrand brothers as the stories were shared by both brothers. I think that the narrator was perfect, he was able to give the feeling of a rough Alaskan fisherman with perfect comedic timing when needed. I have listened to this audiobook several times already and could easily listen again. I don't think the book makes crab fishing sound easy in any way but I find myself wishing I was not female so I could sign up for the next season, nothing worth doing is easy. If you like dry humor in the face of danger and quirky tales of hard working individuals take a listen, you won't be disappointed.
