THE WAVE In Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks and Giants of the Ocean

by | Read by Kirsten Potter

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Ocean waves reaching heights of 100 feet or more have populated legends for thousands of years. With current science at last proving their existence, Casey documents the physics behind the formation of such waves and depicts the people who try to either ride or avoid them. Kirsten Potter captures the scientific gravity of these giant walls of water and the drama of encountering them. Her portrayals of the author’s excursions with the world’s best surfers blend perfectly with the technical descriptions of wave propagation. Potter’s steady and understated vocal tones convey both terror and exhilaration with equal ease, as well as delivering the scientific detachment that befits sober technical study.
