A startling new book, his most personal to date, from Philip Hoare, winner of the 2009 Samuel Johnson Prize for ‘Leviathan’.

Philip Hoare is an incredible writer. The book takes you on a journey and combines science with history and religion in an elegant way. I chose to read this book because it complimented my interests in science. I didn't expect it to be as much like a narrative as it was bur nevertheless I enjoyed this format. There were facts in there about whales that have made me come to appreciate the species. The book was easy to understand, engaging and informative. Overall I was very impressed and would recommend this to anyone interested in seas/oceans/marine life!
