    Excellent read.....could not put it down...left me feeling sad that I’d finished reading the book....in many ways related to the authors experiences and in awe of the life he’s lived so far. Remarkable man....remarkable life. Thank you Mr. Finnegan for sharing your life with me!
  • What a great adventurous life!

    I loved the writing style. I’m not a surfer, but enjoy reading surf books. I learned a lot about different waves. I found myself looking up words I did not know and places as well. I felt the writer really opened himself up, I especially liked the parts about his parents.
  • Great read for the adventurous

    I am not a surfer nor even a particularly strong ocean lover. That said, Barbarian Days for me was a less a book about surfing and more a book about pursuing your passion and dreams to the very fullest. I recommend the book for those who love adventure and have a zest for all that life can offer in all its mysterious ways.
  • High School, revisited

    Good story, and an easy read. Moved right along. However, if you're looking for literature, this will not be your stop. Cormac McCarthy's prowess it does not possess; Donald Ray Pollock's power of storytelling, it is not. I suppose, in short, it read like a high school essay. Choppy sentences, reckless characterization and, at best, serves as an airplane companion piece. The fact that this won the Pulitzer...wow.
  • Great ride, great read

    I've body surfed a lot and wished I'd learned to surf. Now I know what it's like. Terrific book.
  • Conflicted

    I really enjoyed this book. I liked the stories of discovering surf spots like Tavarua, Maderia, and OB before they got crowded or transformed. I also believe Bill tried to stay honest in his experiences both in and out of the water and it was refreshing in a world where surf stories can be a bit like fish stories. But here is the part where I felt conflicted by this story. Towards the end, as he is living in New York he airs his frustration of how surf culture has become incorporated into our society but isn't that what he is partaking the by writing this book?

    The words, story, places and times all hit me like the personal backwash of my own life. But even youngsters who never sat in the lineup can marvel at the quality of the prose and vivid palette of images that immerse the lucky reader in the life of a world girdling surfer, a surfer that is also a a world class writer.
