In honor of Dr. D's movie thread, I'm starting one for the avid readers. My contribution: The Shadow Divers by Robert Kurson. Let me just start by saying that this wasn't a book I would have seeked out by any means, but a student that my husband tutored last year gave it to his as a "thank you." I read the back cover and was intrigued. It's about a couple of very experienced scuba divers that discovered a U-Boat about 100 miles off the coast of NJ around 1991. According to all military records, there was no reason for one to be anywhere near that spot. Over the course of the next 6-7 years, divers made several trips to try to discover the identity of it - during which 3 divers were lost, bones from the deceased sailors were found, dead ends were ran into each time they thought they had a break through, marriages crumbled and countless hours were spend in reasearching the possible identity. The streak of bad luck that they ran into time and time again was just amazing, but in the end it finally came together for them. They literally re-wrote history. There's just so much more to it that I can't even begin to describe but in all I'm glad that I took a chance in reading a book that I wouldn't have glanced at in the first place. Subsequent to finishing the book, I discovered that a screen play is currently being written for the movie and Ridley Scott is to direct it. They expect that it will come out in 2007, but no one has been cast yet.
