Reviews

Ferociously dramatic and vividly written.
Harrowing, relentless . . . and thoroughly enjoyable.
Takes readers into the heart of the maelstrom and shows nature's splendid and dangerous havoc at its utmost.
A terrifying, edifying read. . . . Readers . . . are first seduced into caring for the book's doomed characters, then compelled to watch them carried into the jaws of a meteorological hell. Junger's compassionate, intelligent voice instructs us effortlessly on the sea life of the sword-fisherman, the physics of a sinking steel ship, and the details of death by drowning.--Dava Sobel
