  • A cultural study

    By wildmick
    Very well written. Love the depiction of the Nantucket cultural system. Couldn't stop reading.
  • Incredible read

    By Cinrok
    Amazing true account of cannibalism and desperate tragedy and survival on the open sea after a New England whaling ship is attacked and sunk by a gigantic whale. Impeccably researched and well written. After reading this and "The Last Stand" back to back, Phlibrick has become among my favorite contemporary authors. Amazing book.
  • Heart of the Sea

    By Wdore
    Fascinating. Very readable.
  • Nantucketer's review

    By Skuppahs
    As an older Nantucket native I found this read to be an eye opening experience that is easily read from the 21st Centrist perspective while bringing to life the every day life of a Nantucketer in what now seems to be a very recent history.
