    This is one of the most memorable novels I have ever read I even used it in a college nature literature class I teach, due in large part to the brilliant prose, well developed plot, and most of all the fantastic character development That the protagonist is a whale does not take away from our ability to empathize with the main character As others have pointed out, the background for the story is well researched, and plays an important role in the agenda behind which the story was written A This is one of the most memorable novels I have ever read I even used it in a college nature literature class I teach, due in large part to the brilliant prose, well developed plot, and most of all the fantastic character development That the protagonist is a whale does not take away from our ability to empathize with the main character As others have pointed out, the background for the story is well researched, and plays an important role in the agenda behind which the story was written Again, no matter this is an amazingly well written and memorable novel in its own right

    This book has stuck with me for years now, images and ideas from it burned into my head Excellent work, highly recommended.


  4. Holly Lindquist Holly Lindquist says:

    A post apocalyptic tale with a different focus, in which the main characters are whales rather than humans The author definitely did his research Several species are represented here, including some dolphins who get roped into the human tomfoolery As for the writing, it s slow moving, heavy, and melancholic. a bit like humpback whale music actually.

    Although it is impossible for a human being to view things through the eyes and mind of a whale, Lloyd has probably come as close as one can get Another changed my life forever novel Many tears shed for these blue whales.


  6. Lafcadio Lafcadio says:

    Strange protagonists in this book They are all whales, but not like talking whales, regular whales The book follows their migration almost like a discovery channel special, anthropomorphizing them.

    This book 3 This is one of the few books that has made me emotional I had to take breaks after reading a single page sometimes.I m so happy I stumbled upon it at a used bookstore It is quite technical and specific sometimes, but I loved itfor these details.


  8. Theresa Marshall Theresa Marshall says:

    My love for the ocean and the life within is strong This will forever be a book I treasure.

    This book has been around awhile, but it seems to scream for anyone who is involved with Greenpeace to read it I m not smashing on the book, it s great, but it s a call for people to wake up that we are going to lose the whales if we don t stop what we are doing As I recall from something else I read the blue whales were making a comeback, slowly, but they are being seen , one was seen off the coast of California, which was rare This wonderful novel can really make you cringe though, you This book has been around awhile, but it seems to scream for anyone who is involved with Greenpeace to read it I m not smashing on the book, it s great, but it s a call for people to wake up that we are going to lose the whales if we don t stop what we are doing As I recall from something else I read the blue whales were making a comeback, slowly, but they are being seen , one was seen off the coast of California, which was rare This wonderful novel can really make you cringe though, you care about the animals and so it s hard to take when a dolphin is flensed alive and a few other whales are killed by exploding harpoons Really, this is an impressive novel of seeing a world being destroyed through a whale s eye

    I read this about ten oryears ago, couldn t put it downthere is no human dialogue, just the fictional story of some whales written from inside their own heads as best a human could possibly imagine I d like to add that it is not child like in regards to being told through the whales perspective and many ppl who have reviewed it elsewhere couldn t resist the urge to include spoilers in their reviews, don t worry it s not like science fiction and you have to read between the lines to re I read this about ten oryears ago, couldn t put it downthere is no human dialogue, just the fictional story of some whales written from inside their own heads as best a human could possibly imagine I d like to add that it is not child like in regards to being told through the whales perspective and many ppl who have reviewed it elsewhere couldn t resist the urge to include spoilers in their reviews, don t worry it s not like science fiction and you have to read between the lines to realize what s happening with humanity back on land Also, some of the perspectives attributed to the cetaceans in the story there are dolphins, porpoises and orcas as well as baleen whales have paralels in actual research, for example, the extent to which cetaceans use their sonar, to use it as a sort of sonogram to detect changes in the bodies of other living things around them is not an idea Abbey just pulled out of his hat If you like animals at all, give this book a chance
