A good read, she's not Hemingway, though.
The excitement starts immediately, even before Greenlaw and her five-man crew leave the dock--and doesn't stop until the last page. While under way, she must contend with savage weather, equipment failure, too few fish, and too many sharks--not to mention the routinely backbreaking work of operating a fishing boat in a state of mind-numbing exhaustion after working ten 21-hour days in a row.
With a true fisherman's gift for spinning a yarn and a voice that's wry, honest, and all her own, Greenlaw brings readers right on deck with her and her crew, re-creating the experience of going for the big haul against awesome odds. At once a thrilling page-turner and a passionate ode to a fascinating way of life, The Hungry Ocean will captivate lovers of the sea, adventure, and literature alike.
