Benchley is engaging, humorous, effective, relaxed, and natural as he narrates this collection of his writings about the sea. He recounts the genesis of his novel Jaws, and through stories of his work on novels, documentaries, and his personal adventures, he speaks of many other sea creatures and his thoughts about how humans are treating our oceans. The captivating production conveys his passion for the ocean, the joy and terror he has experienced exploring it, and his dismay at the way we are treating it through narration that is fresh and expressive. This is the ideal case of an author who is able to bring all his enthusiasm for his subject to bear in his narration. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
