User reviews about this book
Fantastic on all levels
A person can read a book about anything as long as the author’s style is fluid and the material written in a captivating way. Although I am a surfer, diver, and all around lover of the sea, I believe this book fits the bill to capture anyone’s interest.
Casey’s authoritative and well researched dive into the world of huge waves is a fast read and magnetic. Her first hand accounts of the legendary surf spot Jaws were thrilling and nerve wracking and made me feel as if I were there with her, Laird, and Brett.
If you enjoy water based activities I am confident you will enjoy this book. If you don’t know very much about the ocean I am confident you will enjoy this book. I am confident anyone will be hard pressed to put this down once they start.
This book is fantastic, I could not put it down. I did not want it to end. Easily the best non fiction book I've read in a long time

A must read for surfers or any type of ocean lover.
I only wish.....
I'll never tow surf or catch a monster but this book makes me want to! Dramatic tales of days surfers yearn for alternating with scientific chapters that aid in the understanding of the climatic changes occurring on the planet help you appreciate what a rogue is and can be!! In a word.....terrifying!!

Wonderful, did not want it to end! The poetic descriptions of nature's power were quite beautiful and in my next life I would hope to arrive as a surfer! A great read on land, forget reading it on a cruise! I highly recommend it and I look forward to reading it again!
A must read. Exceptional!
Loved The Wave!!

I loved this book!! I learned so much. Thank you Susan and Laird and all the people in the book... For all you do to push the envelope and to research our planet
A great read
One of those rare books that captures the essence of the moment in such a way you feel a bit of adrenaline rush during the excitement. Nicely balanced between the supercharged insight into those insane surfers seeking monster waves and a global look at the science and scientists trying to get a handle on why mega-waves happen. The surfer stories made me jealously envious, while the wave facts and science opened my eyes to a global issue I had never considered. Well done.
Only bad part was having to turn the final page.

By Water reader
Fabulous book. Well written. Respectful. Non fiction. All new information for me, also timely, as I am moving to Kauai this month. Any sailor who has been caught in high seas will appreciate the descriptions of the waves, I didn't know there were words. I'm on to the next Susan Casey's book. As good as Shadow Divers. Fascinating like Piracy on the High Seas.
