I love swimming and the ocean, but Lynne Cox takes what for me is a pleasure sport to a whole new level! While she comes across as a little one dimensional and perhaps not the strongest writer, she did accomplish many amazing things, and worked hard to make the world a better place through her very impressive swimming talents. This is an easy and light read, sometimes a little dull, other times a bit more interesting, but it isn't anything too challenging. I overall enjoyed it well enough. If you like non fiction and amazing physical feats, and don't mind less than award winning writing, you might enjoy this story.
