**Note: This is a bit more of a recollection like a Storytime as it draws some parallels from the review. If you want info on the book, scroll down. Otherwise, enjoy the read.
A long long time before super-modern tech of 2010 existed, people were battling to find the giant squid. Moreso, actually see a living one and real pictures.
I was no exception. Even since 2003, I remember trying to Google the giant squid. It was on the level of a creature from cryptozoology for me, and I was desperately trying to find any sort of picture and information about it.
My search didn’t really give me anything concrete. Just some white carcasses in 200px pictures, and one badly written web-page from theshadowlands.net (still surprised these guys are around 13 years later!)
