really liked it

oyster farming is one of the most sustainable types of food farming there is. Oysters filter the water and remove impurities. I learned so much about these tasty bivalves. This book is about a writer for a "Living Social" type website in Boston who gives it up to work on the water harvesting and "planting" oysters for 18 months. Let's the reader live vicariously through her shunning of the corporate world to raise food. It's not a glamorous job, and the conditions are stark, but still she manages to make it sound fun and important.
