The adventurous father and son diving team of Chris and Chrissy Rouse is the center of Chowdhury's book, which details their lifestyle from learning to dive to exploring Florida's limestone cave system to diving wrecks at the limit of advanced scuba diving capabilities (The Andrea Doria as well as the U-boat, also mentioned in "Shadow Divers". Chowdhury himself is an expert diver as well as a friend of the family's. His book not only explores the father-son dynamic but also the world of deep sea diving.
I got this book because I had read Shadow divers, a linked book on the U-Who. The author's style was a little choppy, and did not focus as much as I would have liked. I don't think I would have found the book as enjoyable if I hadn't read Shadow Divers, but hand-in-hand it was a good pair.
What a disappointment! The actual story about the father/son last dive is collectively only about two chapters worth. The rest of the book is just filler. Some of it is educational. You learn about diving, its techniques, verbiage and history. But the author has a problem with repeating some parts over and over and OVER again! It got really annoying. He also took a slight detour and told about his diving accident (which took up more than the actual story of the father/son's last dive). I was really hoping this would be an exciting read but it got to the point where I didn't even care how the last dive happened.
