READER River Monsters

River Monsters Eels a giant described as a cross between a shark and a chainsaw and a snake like beast that truly is the stuff of legend In the tradition of the most gripping adventure writing River Monsters shows that there's to this world than what's visible on the surface As Wade says with a fishing line anything is possible sometimes it can even reveal the future or at least one possible version of it In similar fashion Wade's writings are much than exhilarating stories they reveal a vision of the world awe inspiring than any individual myth made flesh Ultimately River Monsters explores the real mysteries that still exist capturing the story of one man's obsession and his relentless pursuit of the trut We've all heard a fisherman’s tale before – those far fetched stories concerning ‘the ones that got away’ shared in the corner of dimly lit pubs by liuor soaked men with missing teeth Well oddly enough it turns out some of them were trueOf course zoologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade has known this for a long time and for the past twenty five years he’s been travelling the world collecting the stories of ferocious freshwater attacks previously written off as folklore by the masses From tales of sharks attacking horses at river crossings yes sharks in rivers to spiked fish lodging themselves inside gentlemen’s nether regions it really is incredible how many of the myths Wade investigates in River Monsters turn out to be factFrom the opening sentence it’s clear Wade can write he’s previously been employed as a copywriter and reporter and he works intrigue and imagery into his prose with a skilled hand It's a good job he's able to as well because River Monsters is far far than just a transcript of Animal Planet’s primetime television series of the same name It’s the story of Wade himself of a man who wandered through his early adult life lost until his passion for adventure and the natural world was reignited and with it his sense of direction and purposeAnd what a passion he has You can feel it coursing through every sentence and when he’s stalking creatures with names like the goliath tigerfish the alligator garr or the Illiamna lake monster it’s easy to get caught up in Wade’s enthusiasm His knowledge of the creatures he’s hunting and the history of locations he hunts them is brilliant too; one particular highlight is Wade’s recurring comparison of his exploits to those of past explorers including none other than Theodore ‘Teddy’ Roosevelt after an election defeat in 1912 Roosevelt left America in order to explore a perilous tributary of the RiverNaturally the uestion that comes to mind with a book like this is; what’s here for non anglers Well the emphasis is on the fauna and exotic locations not on bait rigs or tackle selection and those solely interested in the natural world will much prefer it that way But the passages on local peoples – tribal and otherwise – and the personal accounts of Wade’s experiences with them are the book's surprise strength they're arguably fascinating than the river monsters themselves
