World without Fish, by Mark Kurlansky, is definitely a very entertaining book, and from the first page to the last I couldn’t stop reading. This is a non- fiction book about a world without fish, so you can definitely judge this book by its cover because it’s exactly about a world without fish! In this book the author talks about the disaster of overfishing and pollution, “Most of the fish we know could be gone in the next fifty years.” This got me hooked and it made me want to read more and learn more about this very little-known problem. This book includes the history of fishing, stats and numbers about fish and fishing methods, and much more. Mark Kurlansky also includes resources and organizations that you can contact if you want to learn more.
Overall, I loved this book and would recommend it to anybody, ages 9-90, with a love of science, the ocean, and fishing. Even if you don’t love any of those subjects I still recommend it, because it is great book with facts, pictures, and even comics, and a great message to the everyone who eats!
