I can't wait to get started discussing this book. Who's reading/already read this one? :)


Duntay | 9 comments I read it years ago and enjoyed it then and hope to get around to re-reading it again soon..I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the old 'Dino fish'.

The illustration on the cover has always bothered me - it looks to svelte to be a proper coelacanth.

Peg Dryden | 5 comments I have started this book and I too am looking forward to the discussion! I have seen the fish in New Haven.

Robyn (robynmcintyre) I just started reading this book and so far, I find the author's voice engaging. She moves fluidly from describing the action to giving you the backstory on someone. Good stuff.

I also like Samantha's tone/cadence.
She's written another book, Pointing from the Grave: A True Story of Murder and DNA, which I'd like to suggest to our group as an upcoming read.
