Bit of a disappointing book. I gave up around page 130 because I felt it would have been pretty pointless for me to carry on. I don't remember learning much (if anything) from this book and I know the way it is displayed is supposed to be interesting and funny but I found it tiresome and overcomplicated if I'm honest. Also, I wish there had been more about just the ocean itself rather than human exploration in the ocean. It really should have been called Putrid Pirates ... But With a Little Bit About the Oceans Too.
