Book Review of In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex

In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex

A great book about the story that inspired the book Moby Dick. The author definitely did his research on this subject and it shows, but he doesn't just present the information. He puts you in the story and does a great job of building tension and conveying the conflict involved in this story.

If you like this book, I strongly recommend 'Endurance' by Alfred Lansing. It is an even more amazing survival story and very well written like this book.
