The Edge of the World: How the North Sea Made Us Who We Are

The Edge of the World: How the North Sea Made Us Who We Are - Michael Pye Disjointed and meandering. An extremely tedious read. Thematic topics are covered in each chapter, so there isn't really a chronological story. Even the thematic topics aren't covered properly. Just a whole bunch of little stories that doesn't actually tell you anything. The author doesn't really make his arguments properly and the reader is left guessing how the sometimes interesting stories relate to "How the North Sea Made Us Who We Are". A very disappointing book.

Addendum: My 89 year old grandmother liked the book. But I'm not sure how much she understood or didn't understand since she is not a native English speaker/ reader.
