Recommended by Meghan at OlyReads Book Club. As with All the Devils Are Here, lost my bookmarks when the book checked itself back in.

Great writing; would have liked more science and/or shipping stories, although she does make the tales of the surfers quite compelling. Only afterwards did the macho/privileged nature of their adventures bug me. Then again, she's got quite a background as a sports writer, so maybe it's only natural.
