A clarion call of a read, explore the unknown in deep ocean waters, discover fascinating history, observe our effect on our environment, and reach for hope in our future. This is a book that offers much, and should find a space in every library, on every home bookshelf. Award-winning author James Bradley makes it very clear that oceans are at the centre of life on our planet, including human life. The oceans act as both magnet and barrier to the humans who live around and on it, and we need attempt to understand our relationship in order to understand our effect on the world as a whole. We are at the stage where scientists do not know how to reverse some of the catastrophic results of human interference, can we learn our lessons, can we yet make a difference? The fabulous Robert Macfarlane declares Deep Water as a major achievement: “Bradley’s skills both as novelist and essayist converge here to create this wise, compassionate, and urgent book…”. Scanning the wide ranging chapter titles gives a clue as to the depth and scope, from migrations to echo, net to cargo, beaches to deep, you begin to get some idea of what is to come. I read with eyes open wide, I was fascinated and felt connected, startled and in shock, but also energised and hopeful. This is a book that feels as though it is for everyone, it’s inclusive and welcoming even as it plunges deeply into the environmental emergency we have created. There was no option other than to add this to our LoveReading Star Books collection, and I’ve also chosen it as a Liz Pick of the Month. So eloquent and beautiful, Deep Water acts as a beacon of warning while shining a bright light of hope on our underwater world.
