Dolphins Voices in the Ocean by Susan Casey (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Jan 03, 2018 at 4:34pm

Inspired by an encounter with a pod of spinner dolphins off the coast of Maui, author Susan Casey embarked on a two-year global adventure to study these remarkable beings. Casey details the extraordinary connection between dolphins and humans, including shared characteristics such as capacity for emotion, playfulness, sociability, and intelligence, the sophisticated navigation ability innate in dolphins, and the dangers they face from people who aim to profit by putting them in captivity or far worse.

Are you a dolphin lover? Do you want to learn more about dolphins?
Well read this book and find out about the mysterious world of dolphins!! Here are some examples of the facts that you might find in this book about dolphins: Dolphins can recognize themselves in a mirror and sadly there is a dolphin hunt in Taiji, Japan every year and LOTS of dolphins are killed or sent to marine parks. As author Susan Casey goes on a trip to get to know dolphins better you can learn lots about dolphins. Read this book and become a dolphin expert!!

This book wasn’t my favourite because it was a non-fiction book, and I’m not a really big fan of non-fiction books. Also this book didn’t really keep my interest. I kept getting distracted when I was reading it and I usually don’t get distracted that much when I’m reading. One reason I think distracted was because the vocabulary was a bit hard. Especially in one chapter when they were talking about the dolphins brain. Even though I didn’t really enjoy this book, if you like dolphins or want to learn about them you might like this book. I give Dolphins Voices in the Ocean a 3 out of 5 stars.
