Linda Greenlaw's notoriety as "one of the best sea captains on the East Coast" came through Sebastian Junger's dramatic account in THE PERFECT STORM. Greenlaw's story of life aboard swordfishing boats will interest many listeners. However, just as Greenlaw wasn't the ship's captain on her first voyage, so her first efforts as writer and narrator fall a little short. Her flat voice and unschooled timing demand listeners' perseverence. Greenlaw gives reflection and detail in ample proportion of both shipboard routine and adventure.
