That, however, is not what happened. Donovan Hohn ended up traveling the globe following the trail of some rubber duckies (and other rubber animal toys) which were lost at sea. This was a pretty funny book. I mean, seriously, think about it: rubber duckies at sea! And yet, it was still a scientific kind of book. When a ship wrecks, we don't really think about the cargo that it was carrying. But that stuff has to go somewhere. This book addresses where some of that cargo went. It was quite engaging and humorous at times.
This book is kind of depressing, though, as it talks a lot about how the ocean is horribly polluted by plastic and how sleazy politicians are, always cutting corners and pretending that they're "helping the environment" when they're not (that I knew already.) But I really enjoyed reading it.
Read Moby Duck:
- if you like humorous nonfiction/science books
- if you are interested in ocean currents/science
- if you like rubber duckies (?) maybe?
|Very Good! I would recommend this book!|
