Reviews

The pages of this book crunch with salt.
Every boater is drawn to storm-at-sea stories, and this one beats them all.
One reads with the most intense concern, anxiety and concentration; and if one knows anything at all about the sea one feels the absolutely enormous strength of the hurricane winds and the incredibly towering mass of the hundred-foot waves.--Patrick O'Brian
Rich, compassionate characterization, as well as taut, suspenseful prose. A tale that doesn't skimp on facts, yet keeps you turning pages from beginning to end.
Harrowing, relentless...and thoroughly enjoyable.
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
