Just stunning! Blue Machine should be placed in the hands of school pupils, politicians, environmentalists, in fact anyone and everyone. Looking at the oceans as a single engine powered by sunlight ensures an eye-opening and fascinating read. Helen Czerski writes with a beautifully nuanced and compelling pen, once I started reading I simply didn’t want to stop. She says that: “Thinking about the ocean isn’t a luxury for the curious any more. It’s a major part of our life-support system and we’d better take it seriously. We’re also learning that even this vast body of water isn’t big enough to shrug off the influence of humankind”. She shows, tells, explains, and captures hearts and minds, she passes her important message by encouraging understanding and a connection. As I explored I fell in love with something I have always viewed with awe and even a little fear. Blue Machine is at once an extraordinary history lesson, story time, and vital warning to humankind. Read it!
