it was amazing
bookshelves: nicholas-recommends

This is a book about ocean waves, and I can already hear what some people might be thinking: Why on earth would I care about that? I had the same thought when I first picked it up; hours later, after reading the book in a single sitting, I realized that good writers can make any story interesting, fascinating, engaging and a lot of fun. Susan Casey is a wonderful writer and the subject only grows more interesting the further you read. While I'm the first to admit that I enjoy a good novel, I also enjoy non-fiction titles, and this one is a 'Don't Miss.'

Anna That is a nice way to put it. You are all caught up in the book and when you think a good part is coming you heart races and you are thinking what is happening and you want to read it as fast as you can
