Book Club Discussion: Trapped Under the Sea

Trapped Under the Sea FL2W Book Club Banner

I lost an entire night’s sleep reading  Trapped Under the Sea by Neil Swidey  (Broadway Books) because I couldn’t put it down. Even though I cheated and Googled the ending of the true events that Swidey retells, I had to read it until the end. Boston Globe Magazine journalist Swidey made me feel as if I was right in the middle of everything. Meticulously researched, the book retells “harrowing story of five men who were sent into a dark, airless, miles-long tunnel, hundreds of feet below the ocean.” 

I know many From Left to Write book club members also felt the same way I did when they read it. Though they probably didn’t lose as much sleep as I did. Today they discuss Trapped Under the Sea on their sites with personal stories inspired by this true story of the men who saved Boston’s harbor, formerly the dirtiest one in the United States.

Take a look at our book club discussion of Trapped Under the Sea:
