Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Monday, May 17, 2021
I got this softcover at a local Goodwill thrift shop, for another release copy.

This is a very detailed look at lobsters and their habits, as well as the way humans harvest them, with the economic and environmental factors involved. The author has a dry humor at times that I quite appreciate. And if the book made me crave one of the awesome lobster rolls at Red's in Wiscasset, Maine, well, that's not surprising!

There's an appendix on "How to Cook a Lobster" that goes into the question of the most humane methods of killing them; definitely of interest, whether you end up agreeing with the author's conclusions or not. [No actual recipes, though!]

[I also enjoyed Corson's The Story of Sushi.]

I hope to leave this book, bagged against the elements, near the smaller lobster-sculpture outside the Taste of Maine restaurant in Woolwich, while on a lobster-themed road trip with a friend. [The humongous inflated lobster lurching over the roof is always an entertaining sight along this road. Alas, today the huge lobster was not in sight, so the little one will have to do.] Hope the finder enjoys the book!
