Well as I've finished my exams I have some spare time on my hand, so recommend me some books please:

Have read Shadow Divers, Deep Descent, Silver Bubbles etc

Interested in anything diving related really- Salvage, Caving, Wrecking etc

Looking at buying "Caverns Measureless to Man", anyone read it?

Cheers,

Dan

The Swarm, recommended to me by Garf. 870 pages long but it only took me 3 days to read it. Admittedly I was travelling on a plane or train for a fair period of those 3 days!

Not diving specific, but it is about how we are trashing this planet and how another life form, in the sea, is getting pissed off about it and decides to get it's own back on the human race. Lots of underwater stuff plus microbiology, geology, military weapons etc

Mr Helen bought me Port Royal: The Sunken City by Robert F Marx a few years ago for Christmas and I rather enjoyed that.

Bet you're relieved the studying is over - I know what that feels like. Good luck with the results.

Meg triligy by steve alten
the last dive by bernie chowdhury

Both awesome.

Also I read a book by richard ellis called empty ocean, its not really a novel, but made a very interesting read if your into conservation and fish and stuff.

good luck!

Descent into Darkness: Pearl Harbour 1941: a Navy Diver's Memoir by Edward C. Raymer.

ISBN: 0891417451

Fascinating book full of details such as; how do you know when you're in the presence of corpses in the complete darkness of a sunken battleship? By the tinkling of their finger bones across the top of your helmet.

Puts sports diving into context.
