Superbly written and action packed The Last Dive ranks with such adventure classics as The Perfect Storm and Into Thin Air Tampa TribuneSpurred on by a fatal combination of obsession and ambition Chris and Chrisy Rouse an experienced father son scuba diving team hoped to achieve wide spread recognition for their outstanding and controversial diving skills by solving the secrets of a mysterious undocumented World War II German U boat that lay only a half day's mission from New York HarborThe Rouses found the ultimate cost of chasing their personal challenge death from what divers dread the most decompression sickness or the bends In this gripping recounting of their tragedy author Bernie Chowdhury himself an expert diver explores the thrill seeking high risk world of deep sea diving its legendary figures most celebrated triumphs and notorious tragedies I am nearly at the end of the book The story is gripping and engaging the technical diving terms are all well explained and should not get in the way of the non diver wishing to read the bookWhat annoyed me was that the writer repeated a lot of facts in several sections of the book recounting the same tales multiple times The flow of the story was not well maintained Compared to Raising the Dead by Phillip Finch which I also read this book is poorly writtenHaving said that if you can brush over these imperfections the book is still well worth reading

The Last Dive A Father and Son's Fatal Descent into the Ocean's DepthsSuperbly written and action packed The Last Dive ranks with such adventure classics as The Perfect Storm and Into Thin Air Tampa TribuneSpurred on by a fatal combination of obsession and ambition Chris and Chrisy Rouse an experienced father son scuba diving team hoped to achieve wide spread recognition for their outstanding and controversial diving skills by solving the secrets of a mysterious undocumented World War II German U boat that lay only a half day's mission from New York HarborThe Rouses found the ultimate cost of chasing their personal challenge death from what divers dread the most decompression sickness or the bends In this gripping recounting of their tragedy author Bernie Chowdhury himself an expert diver explores the thrill seeking high risk world of deep sea diving its legendary figures most celebrated triumphs and notorious tragedies Without taking anything away from Chowdhury's expertise and experiences as diver he has reached levels most of us will never get near the book for me drags and is a uite frustrating read at timesThe crux of the book is sold as the fatal last dive of the Rouses However the book is far too long and drawn out for the content Chowdhury doesn't reach the fatal dive until almost the last chapter and then it is scimmed over uickly Hence the most dramatic aspect of the book is over very uickly leaving you without sounding morbid feeling somewhat sort changed Maybe it was out of respect for the dead but why write a book advertised around their fatal last dive and then barely touch the subject? Chowdbury would have been better writing a magazine article if he had wanted to focus on just that fateful dive keeping it short and too the point Or advertise his book as an exploration into the diving community and it experimentation in new techniues during the late 80's early 90's He simply doesn't have enough material and your left with pages and pages of rather boring fleshing out It may as well be an autobiography on both himself and the Rouse's which is interesting at times but is not why I bought the bookAs another reviewer mentioned there is so much irrelevant information and bizarre tangents in an attempt to flesh out the book I'm reading a book on diving I don't wish to know about his fathers career as a scientist etc The are huge areas of repetition on dive tables gas effects under pressure how decompression sickness occurs once I've read it once I've got it I became frustrated when such information appears again and again and goes on for pages I landed up skipping through huge chunks as I'd read it all before in the previous chapterThe writing is very melodramatic and over the top at times Using 'war zone' analogies with reference to deep diving I found both cringing and uite insulting is merely one example I understand it is a very extreme sport and takes a strong minded individual to dive the way these men and woman do but the constant descriptive glorification regarding them is both cheesy and unnecessarySadly with his overly dramatic references and long winded writing style I feel Chowdbury has missed the mark with this book Although if your after a sort of semi autobiography and the challenges of pioneering tech diving it might be up your streetPhilip Finch's 'Raising the Dead' about Dave Shaw's final dive is a fantastic example of a book written around what some would deem a relatively short piece of subject matter It is informative cohesive gripping and to the point about diving to much greater depths without any glorification or melodrama If your after a non fiction thriller on diving you literally can't put down look no further
