I loved it,
This review is from: In the Heart of the Sea: The Epic True Story that Inspired 'Moby Dick' (Paperback)
Compare it to the Chase/Nickerson 'classic' which comes across as rather dry, this book is superb. One of the few books I've lent my mother and she actually read and enjoyed. Philbrick knows his stuff and has obviously done the research for this book. Would encourage everyone to read this so next time they start bitching about a long journey or being hungry or thirsty they'll know the meaning of the words.
