Soundings reviewed in The Booklover newsletter


Independent bookshop The Booklover has reviewed Kennedy Warne’s memoir Soundings: Diving for stories in the beckoning sea:

‘For the past 40 years, Kennedy Warne, one of New Zealand's best-known nature writers and commentators, has been exploring the underwater world. His love of the ocean began as a small boy sailing and fishing with this father on the Hauraki Gulf and was further strengthened by a degree in marine biology. This beautifully written collection draws the reader into 'this shimmering world'. Warne has always felt welcomed by the sea and wants to impart that same sense of belonging to the reader. Yes, the oceans as we know them are under threat, but as he travels the waters around New Zealand and the world, Warne discovers a lot to be positive about too.’
