What an amazing book!! I admit that I always have been a huge shark enthusiast, and that's what initially drew me to this. When I started reading it, I wasn't sure if it was going to be one of those non-fiction books that just drags or if I'd even be able to finish it, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It's an interesting story that follows her experiences on the Farallones and also stealthily integrates some interesting island history as well as shark facts. I would definitely recommend it for anyone interested in sharks or really anyone who's open to reading a book that's a little different and also teaches you some things. Very well done. I think I may add it to my permanent collection. :)
