THE DEVIL'S TEETH A True Story of Obsession and Survival Among America's Great White Sharks

by | Read by Susan Casey

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Just a few dozen miles off San Francisco lie the Farallon Islands. The rocky outcroppings, known to nineteenth-century sailors as the Devil's Teeth, are part of a marine wildlife sanctuary, which is home to scores of great white sharks for several months a year. Susan Casey's story of the sharks and the scientists who study them is part magazine article, part travelogue, part character study, and part biological essay. Her writing is clear and easy to follow, and she mixes in the science so effectively that listeners won't realize how much they're learning. However, her reading, while serviceable, falls a little short. Her diction is casual at times, consistently dropping the "ed" on past tenses and pronouncing "Farallon" as one syllable. It's a small distraction, though. This production includes a bonus CD with digital images of the sharks. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
