Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was...Okay Being a science geek, I thought secret life of lobsters would be rather fabulous. It's more about the people who fish lobsters then the lobsters themselves. It is impossible to read this book without learning SOMETHING, but I guess that was because of my overwhelming crustacean ignorance. However, it wasn't so fabulous that I could recommend it as a good read . If you want fabulous non-fiction that will knock your socks off, read The Golden Spruce by John Vaillant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't waste your time A dreadful piece of crap. Lame fictionalized vignettes form the bulk of this turkey. Little info about lobsters per se, and certainly no overall thesis about them. Just a lot of stories about people the author's met.
