Like a Greek drama, The Perfect Storm builds slowly and inexorably to its tragic climax. The book weaves the history of the fishing industry and the science of predicting storms into the quotidian lives of those aboard the Andrea Gail and of others who would soon find themselves in the fury of the storm. Junger does a remarkable job of explaining a convergence of meteorological and human events in terms that make them both comprehensible and unforgettable. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Although if you truly want to get a good idea of this book and really understand it, you should watch the movie.
These are minor distractions as Junger recounts the story of the fishing boat the 'Andrea Gail' and its disappearance during a particularly violent 'perfect storm'.
Sebastian Junger does an incredible job of making this book as realistic and suspenseful as possible, without stretching the actuality of the story.
