    I think I like Sig Hansen even after reading this book This was chalked full of history of his family and the history of the Norwegians It also gave back round on how crab fishing works Even though it wasn t as quirky or entertaining as the Time Bandit book this book held it s own story I have to admit some of the history parts did get a little boring but it s knowledge I would of have never even thought to look up had it not been for the Deadliest Catch Sig is quirky in his own right What we see on tv is how he portrays himself in the book It was nice to read a little about Norman, who is the quiestest Hansen brother It didn t surprise me to hear some of Edgar s childhood Some of the things Sig did as a child surprised me since it seems that Sig was a bit uptight Overall enjoyable read I enjoyed learning about this captain and this crew.

    North by Northwestern ist die Geschichte der norwegischen Familie Hansen, die vor den K sten Alaskas zu den Fischern geh rt, die ber Deadliest Catch Fang des Lebens bekannt geworden sind.Als grosse Fan der Serie war ich nat rlich sehr an der Familiengeschichte der Br der Sig, Edgar und Norman interessiert Das Leben auf See ist kein Zuckerschlecken, das beweist uns die Serie immer aufs Neue Interessant ist zu erfahren, wann die Familie zu den besten Fischern vor Alaska wurde, welche Familienmitglieder noch dazu geh ren und wie sich ber Jahrzehnte mit Gro vater und Vater ein funktionierendes Unternehmen entwickelt, welches von Fangquoten und Wetter komplett abh ngig ist.Trotzdem aller Widrigkeiten sind die Hansens mit Leib und Seele Fischer und w rden ihren Job gegen keinen anderen auf der Welt tauschen wollen.Ich finde auch solche Biografien wichtig, auch wenn sie nur von einem Fischer handeln Aber so wird uns vielleicht bewusst, dass es Menschen gibt, die tagt glich ihr Leben riskieren, nur damit wir Delikatessen auf dem Teller liegen haben.Ich hatte die H rbuchversion von LEGIMI auf den Ohren, die sich via Tablett h ren l sst Der Sprecher war Axel Prahl und ich f hlte mich durch seine sonore Stimme sofort auf die Planken der Northwestern versetzt.

    Just finished North by Northwestern A little odd, since I know Sig A good backstory for Deadliest Catch fans Gives info on the mechanics and economics of crab fishing, and the history of the Hansens as pioneers in the Alaskan fishing industry Quick and easy read.

    Ok book Captain Sig Hansen holds very little back about personal life, fishing life and gives a lot of interesting information on Norwegian history.

    Very few fishermen I ve known have not seen at least a handful of episodes of The Deadliest Catch Even if they insist they don t care about it, or that it s just a vehicle for the ego of skippers like Sig Hansen, The Deadliest Catch has been incredible good advertising for the industry, and unlike the movie The Perfect Storm, it stars people who actually work in the industry.One of the things I enjoyed most about this book is how the ghost writer Mark Sundeen is able to capture the voice of Sig Hansen The tone is authentic very similar to the voices of the many fishermen I have myself recorded in various projects I ve worked on I also loved the history of crab fishing, which I don t think I ve ever read anywhere else.The heart of this book is the history of the Hansen family and their immigration from Karmoy, Norway, to Washington State There s much to take in here too if you enjoy reading about adventures at sea and the immigrant success story, this will be a good place to start At the same time there is too much of the hagliography in this work, a flaw common to many books that exalt the heroic individual.I m not saying the book is dishonest It isn t Just don t come into it expecting anything particularly introspective, which would have enriched the internal life of the characters, though occasionally he hits the spot as when his brother Edgar would hug their father Sverre before Edgar went fishing Sverre tells a friend he enjoys it despite being paralysed by this physical closeness that was so much a part of the culture in the United States rather than the Norwegian culture he had come from It is an example I ve heard before in the oral histories and it helps us better understand the differences in generations.Having spent several years working in Petersburg, Alaska also referred to as little Norway , and knowing that there are probably people of Norwegian descent working in the Alaskan fisheries than any other ethnic group, I grew tired of hearing about the boys from Karmoy Well, the book is honest about its clannishness but it s tiring If I need a football team to root for I ll stick with the Seahawks I also found the nostalgia for old Ballard wearying Old Ballard died of its own success most of the Scandinavians moved on to greener pastures, though I ll confess to some sadness when I recently heard the fabled Smoke Shop is to close Fishermen on the whole can be proud, stubborn and independent Rich or poor these are traits that follow the profession North by Northwestern is the best book I ve read on the Alaskan crab fishery Finally someone has documented how the industry was founded and came about The family story, too, is compelling, but how many up by the bootstraps hagliographies do we need Sig Hansen mentions crewmen buying expensive watches double the normal price from a local crab processor Having tons of money made them do it, but what about a little about the difficult adjustment many fishermen have when they come back to dry land He waxes rhapsodic on the successful crewmen and never speaks of the crew that died of alcoholism More about what the sea can do to men s minds would have been nice.

    A fast read and enjoyable It was a great account of the industry through the years and the Hansen family was a part of that, as well as their personal culture and history What I found difficult was the choppy, jump around telling of all these parts While it is likely what kept the book moving along quickly, it seemed to jump back and forth on various timelines and was inconsistent in the use of dates vs ages, so I had a difficult time trying to piece together the order of events with respect to a year or age of the Hansen s If that had been flushed out a bit clearly, this would ve been a 4star book.

    Are you a Deadlist Catch fan Read this book It details all things Sig Hansen and how his family has bled and continues to bleed all things crab fishing The author same guy who wrote The Man who quit Money also allowed Sig to include Norwegian history lessons and the biology of various crab species This isn t just a biography, you can learn something from it.Great read.

  8. says:

    The narrator for the audiobook was pretty monotone and boring, but the content of the book itself was great If you have any interest in Deadliest Catch or crab fishing in general, you will probably like this book.
