Book Review of North by Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters (Audio CD) (Abridged)

reviewed on + 107 more book reviews

I really enjoyed this audio book; I enjoyed it so much, in fact, that I recorded several episodes of "Deadliest Catch" on the Discovery channel and watched three of them last night.

The author tells an exciting story and displays an encyclopedic knowledge of the crab fishing industry, something I'd never even thought about. Watching the TV series enhanced my enjoyment of the book since I was able to put pictures with the words. I feel a lot of admiration for the commercial fisherman - they're paid very well for what they do, but I think they earn every cent.
