This book is one of the best Ive heard on audible. It gives a complete picture of whaling in general and keeps you riveted until the last word. I highly recommend you give it a listen.
Sorry George but this isnt very funny. There were a couple laughs hidden here and there but pretty dumb overall..
This was a pretty good book. Its definitely not for anyone who is sensitive talking about dead bodies. Apparently Im one of those people because I really had to force myself to finish this book. It does a good job overall however.
I'm mostly done with it now and heres what I think. Its a pretty good book. Very interesting subject matter but he seems to have done very little with it. Everyhting is very straightforward. really simple. The narrator is great EXCEPT....for his voices..they are just awful! I wish he would have just read the lines without doing the voices. I got tired of his Merrick/Schwarzeneggar voice about five minutes in. I dont want to harp on it too bad though, it was pretty good I dont regret listening just dont expect loads of depth.
This is a really good book. It really does touch on nearly every area of science. Great if you just want to brush up on your general science knowledge. I have to echo the earlier comments also, this guy is a great narrator. Never droning or monotonous. I highly recommend this book
