The Atlantic by Simon Winchester

Atlantic: Great Sea Battles, Heroic Discoveries, Titanic Storms,and a Vast Ocean of a Million Stories

I just finished a non-fiction book called Atlantic by Simon Winchester.

It was a great book, very intereseting. It is all about the history of the Atlantic Ocean, or rather what has happened on, under and around the Atlantic Ocean from its birth. I learned alot about places around the ocean that I had never heard of or knew little about. He also went into the climatic and geologic changes going on and what is causing them, laying some myths to rest and supporting others. I have always enjoyed his books but this one was the best so far. I commented on his website and recieved an email from him. It was very personally written, though doubt it was actually him. But it was very nice regardless.

  1. Its been a year since I read this book, and I have to say, I still think of it. I learned so much about an Ocean I have lived near most of my life.
