This review is from: Trawler: A Journey Through the North Atlantic (Paperback)
This is a great read that takes you on an extraordinary trip into a way of life that most people overlook. O'Hanlon is such a sympathetic and self-effacing character that you can't help but root for him to survive the storm amid men who are much younger and fitter than he is. He does bang on about marine biology quite a bit, but he more than makes up for it with his depiction of the spaced-out, paranoid atmosphere on the boat created by a communal lack of sleep. Five stars.
