Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 28, 2004
"Diving The Seamount", Tom Rapko's scuba diving bestseller, roared ahead on Amazon.com's sales list last week jumping over 600,000 places.
Along with the sales jump, the novel also garnered a key review from Grady Harp, an Amazon.com Top 50 Reviewer, who described the novel as "An Adventure For The Mind, The Spirit, And The Soul."
La Paz, Mexico serves as the backdrop for this novel, a sweeping tale part carpe diem, part life philosophy that questions the wisdom of pursuing a material life at the expense of freedom.
Through the use of robust character development and a consistent philosophical undercurrent "Diving the Seamount" weaves seemingly dissimilar lives together and leads the reader to a wholly compelling conclusion.
What, you might ask, is a seamount anyway? A seamount is an underwater volcano that plateaus below the surface of the sea. Characteristically scuba divers encounter a rich variety of sea life in these areas--dense hard coral, prolific schools of fish and pelagics like hammerhead sharks. All of these animals have an affinity for seamounts.
Given the propensity of describing life success in terms of material acquisition, "Diving The Seamount" offers a refreshing view on the importance of personal character development and the value of simplicity. And with the holiday season fast approaching "Diving The Seamount" makes a superb choice for the adventurer in your life!
"Diving the Seamount", ISBN 0595320856, is available in soft cover for $11.95 at all major book retailers including Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and iUniverse.com
