Would you listen to The Extreme Life of the Sea again? Why?
I would definitely listen to this book again. It is so chocked full of information that it's difficult to process it all in one hearing, and it's so easy to listen to that it makes an excellent travelling companion, even if you're just looking for something random and interesting to listen to.
What did you like best about this story?
While it discusses a lot of serious topics (marine biology, evolution, biochemistry, climate change, over-fishing), it's never inaccessible, even if you know almost nothing about the topics beforehand, but it doesn't feel dumbed down.
What does Stephen Hoye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Hoye brings very little to the book, by which I mean that his reading feels almost completely unobtrusive, just what I want in a science audiobook. He also never mispronounces even the more difficult terms (at least the ones I knew how to pronounce!), which is a rarity.

Where does The Extreme Life of the Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This sits at the top of my list of informative audiobooks. Clearly outlined are the dilemmas we have with ocean life and what must be done to save it. This book takes you into the lives of several extraordinary sea creatures; explaining their needs to survive and the importance they play in a balanced ecosystem. This helps us better understand the impact created by man on the ocean ecosystem and how out of whack it has become. The author gives us hope but makes it clear that we don't have much time to save the life of our planet. Make sure to download the pdf with this audiobook. It includes great visual representations and charts. Very well read audiobook.
