'An uproarious adventure - one predicated on the protestors' ferocious sense of moral rectitude. Engdal and Saeter are energetic writers with a sense of pace and cinematic detail ... Catching Thunder is an exciting read.'
'A true story that reads like a spy novel, peppered with scary organized crime villains, charismatic environmental activists and Interpol agents, and enough tidbits about sailing treacherous seas, commercial fishing, and endangered species to satisfy the most dedicated nautical adventure fan.'
5/5* Foreword Reviews
'This is a modern pirate story, but the plunder isn't pieces of eight - it's the Patagonian Toothfish, as valuable as narcotics ... A solid piece of collaborative journalism.'
Sydney Morning Herald
