The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier

The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier Reviews

  • Jenny Javier
    I have been looking forward to reading this book soon as I saw it announced. I have read several chapters (not necessarily in order) and am so blown away with the scope, the writing, and the whole production that took to get all of these stories written. Why is this topic and this book not a bigger ...

    Wholly absorbing. It's hard to wrap my feeble mind around the years of investigation, miles travelled, and risks taken to write this book. Astounding. Yes, there is an undercurrent of hopelessness and desperation throughout the book that may give you bad dreams. But it is fascinating. And there are ...
  • Daniel Thomas
    This is the first nonfiction book I've read in a year. In The Age of Trump, I've wanted to unplug and immerse myself in fiction. Urbina has done a spectacular job of reporting on all the myriad ways that governments and individuals use the international waters to skirt the law; everything from human...

    This is a remarkable work of journalism. The author gives us a first-rate account of the continual changes in the vast oceans. Much of it is not pretty. The oceans are unregulated and what laws there are, are transgressed at will. The laws are airy and many countries have “their” ocean are...
  • Diane S ☔
    An outstanding piece of investigative journalism, describing a world that is mostly unseen but that covers most of our planet. Our oceans and what is happening on them. The author takes us to various places, some quite dangerous. Illegal fishing of Chilean Sea bass where he on a boat chasing a ship ...

    A collection of news articles about overfishing and other activities engaged on the oceans of the world, focusing mostly on Oceania. Urbina finds himself wanting to pursue more information while being bound by the realities of maritime restrictions. He must gather as much information as possible, av...

    This book is wild!! If you want to know what capitalism unleashed from all regulation or social shame, see the economy of the ocean. Urbina reveals exploitation and corruption and how easy it seems to be to evade all laws out there. Fascinating...
  • Jeanette
    It's more than 3 stars to be fair, but not for me. I can't round it up. 3.5 stars for the content. And 5 stars for Ian Urbina's bravery and guile. But to be honest, this was one of the top 10 most gut wrenching tomes I've ever read. And that's saying something.So many truly perverted, gross and just...
