This will be a really short review because this is the type of book that someone will either want to read or immediately dismiss because they aren’t interested in sharks. And although I could spend hours upon hours trying to convince you why sharks are so important, I won’t do that here.

So, with that said, I love this book! The author made sure to cover all sides of shark hunting, demonstrating its importance to fishermen and different local economies and also why it’s harmful to the oceans to continue such practices. The book is written more as a novel than a non-fiction piece and the folklore surrounding sharks is told in a way that does justice to their mythical powers. As a shark lover, I was already pro-shark, but now I understand how and why some cultures see sharks as gods and how hunting them is an integral part of their way of life, which adds a whole new aspect to my respect for them.
