This book was a wonderful and exciting piece of non fiction. Cussler takes the reader on a wonderful journey back in time to experience the lives and deaths of ships and their crews. The reader is then transported to present day when Cussler describes his adventures as he and teams of other dedicated people try to hunt down these lost vessels. Some hunts are successful and some are not, but each story is captivating and makes this book a real page turner.

I enjoy history and his searches in the book provided me with quite a few bits if information about famous ships thjat I had not heard about before. I hope to read the other Sea Hunters book before long.

This book is the sequel to The Sea Hunters, which totally fascinated me and is still one of my favorite books. However, I didn't find Sea Hunters II nearly as fascinating. It follows the same style. Each chapter tells about a famous wreck, first a fictional retelling of the story that made the ship famous and the story of it's wreck, and the the non-fiction story of the search for the wreck.

Maybe it was the fact that most of the wrecks talked about in this book aren't all that famous. Or that many of the wrecks in this book either (1) weren't found, or (2) weren't ships. Actually I think Cussler just spent too much time on the fictional retelling of the wrecks' stories, and not enough on the non-fictional part about the search for the wreck.

Several stories in the book fascinated me just as much as the original, though - the stories about Carpathia (the ship that rescued the survivors from Titanic) and the White Bird (the French plane that reportedly made the trans-Atlantic flight just weeks before Lindbergh did, but crashed before the flight was totally completed). For those two stories alone I would have read this book.
