Harvey heaped praise on both the book and its author: "The book has it all: beauty, tragedy, grittiness, humour, darkness, love, music, raunchiness, poetry and a glut of fully drawn, extraordinary characters whose words and deeds and circumstances compel the reader to laugh and blush and weep and swell with bighearted pride MacLeod is MacLeod, the greatest living Canadian writer and one of the most distinguished writers in the world.

Falsches Spiel: Roman (German Edition)
Mar 19, Kate rated it it was ok. I learned a lot about fishing from this book, which is good, and I was very sorry to read about the author's loss of her husband and son when their fishing boat capsized off the Oregon coast. However, I really wanted to read a narrative instead of a collection of journal entries.

There were many extraneous entries about, like, weight watchers and what to eat for whatever holiday, and what I really wanted was information about the people involved. The author's way of drawing her family's characte I learned a lot about fishing from this book, which is good, and I was very sorry to read about the author's loss of her husband and son when their fishing boat capsized off the Oregon coast.
The author's way of drawing her family's characters was fairly two-dimensional. Of course they were wonderful and flawless and of course it's all such a senseless loss, but This needed to be shaped and edited as a memoir, instead of just billed as a memoir. Jan 19, Pat Gallagher rated it it was amazing. Having lost my own son, I wanted to read this book to see how Michele Longo Eder handled her grief process.
I cried through a good portion of the book. Brought back many memories of what I went through and still am ten years after he died. This is a fascinating look into the lives of the fishermen who risk their lives. A very in depth look into the wives and families on shore waiting for their loved ones to return from the sea. Jul 21, Vera rated it really liked it. I couldn't stop reading this book. I learned a lot.

Mar 11, Theresa Mathews rated it it was amazing. Salt in Our Blood is bittersweet story of what life is like as fisherman's wife. I can't imagine grieving the loss of a child, especially knowing the tragedy her son and his mates experienced in their last moments. Michele Longo Eder shares the challenges, fears, hard work, and love that goes into supporting a fisherman in his trade. She writes with the expertise, knowledge, humour, and drive that is required to do the job right.
