A family vacation to Alaska is on my horizon later this summer, so it’s fitting that I read The Sinking of the Angie Piper by Chris Riley.

On that trip I think I’ll stick close to shore.

Riley, a Sacramento-based writer like myself, creates a richly textured backdrop of Alaskan fishing culture against which he tells the tale of the Angie Piper and her crew of commercial crab fishermen working the Gulf of Alaska in winter. Narrator Edward Thurman, a young but not novice member of the crew, has brou

This book is still yet to be published, but I received an Advance Review Copy from the author. I enjoyed the beginning of this book and learning about Alaska and the culture of crab fishing. It was also exciting to meet the characters and get involved in the unique challenge each one was facing by stepping on board the Angie Piper. The characters' personalities played well off one another. When the going got tough though, and the Angie Piper was en route to sinking (that's not a spoiler, it's ac ...more

I would give this book 4 1/2 stars

This is one intense book! You might have seen some of the reality TV shows about those that fish or crab in Alaska or that general area. This book brings the harsh reality of that what those men (and possibly women) endure in this profession.

But the book is about a little bit more than that. It is also about a relationship between Ed and Danny. While it takes awhile to really figure out what is wrong with Danny (mentally challenged), the relationship between the

A wild, exciting adventure upon the high seas, full of danger, hardships, and uncertainty... but also triumphs, self realizations, and hope. The crew is a memorable collection of personalities, but the way they come together when all heck breaks loose, will steal your breath and stir your heart. Definite top pick for adventure seekers, both of the armchair and real life varieties.
