The Wave (In Pursuit of The Rogues, Freaks, and Giants of the Ocean) by Susan Casey
I found this book to be very thought provoking and even hauntingly beautiful. It is also a brutal and terrorizing
look at what global warming is doing to our oceans. Susan writes a very comprehensive account of both the scientific studies as well as the surfing from her view from the inside. She knows the people involved in both sides of the issue through both research as well as being one of them. While this is not a book of fiction, it reads very much like one, leaving you breathless at times and horrified and fearful at others. A very real look at a possible future.
I received this book as a free copy from Goodreads First Reads. I am not receiving any compensation and all opinions are my own based off my independent reading of this material.
