5.0 out of 5 stars A real revelation, 27 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Underwater To Get Out Of The Rain: A Love Affair with the Sea (Paperback)
I read this because I love autobiography and was fascinated by the title - I had no idea that I had any interest at all in marine biology - but I have discovered that it is riveting! Trevor Norton has done that really difficult thing in writing his own memoirs in a very amusing and light way, he has succeeded in interesting the reader in his own subject - simply because he doesn't take himself too seriously. We discover that he is climbing the career ladder completely by the way, whilst he is busy regaling us with hilarious tales of his time in the middle east or the US. I have driven my husband mad by snorting with laughter, reading bits out and telling him he simply MUST read this book next. What a discovery! I shall now read all his other books. If you read this, Professor, thank you, for a great read, if only there were more experts who could write so interestingly out there, we'd all be a lot more educated in all sorts of fields we never dreamed could interest us!
