Needed a short audio book that might appeal to my husband as well. This is what I found...I knew it contained excerpts of classics so I feel like I can't hold that against it? I don't read classics very much and I'd rather listen to an entire book... That being said, I knew what I was getting into..Some stories were easier to get into than others. I borrowed this from my library. We loved the Treasure Island excerpt and want to listen to the whole thing.

An anthology that contains interesting bits of (mostly) longer works, Deep Blue left me wishing that I had gone to the sources.

Excerpts from famous sailing ship disasters. Some I had read in high school, but it was good to revisit.

I listened to this as a book on tape. It was entertaining and for those who love the sea and pirates, this would be for them. I would find this not as exciting to read. The exerpts from other books were too long and at times, tedious. It did give me a taste of "Moby Dick" and "Treasure Island".
