A fun story that could have been much longer. I really got into the characters and then it was the end sadly.

I really enjoyed this book. I looked forward to driving to work every day because I could listen to it! There are so many twists and turns, just when you thought you had worked it out another piece of information turned up. Easy to listen to and follow and a lovely voice reading it.

Mysterious all the way through

A very easy to listen to story from the point of view of a journalist reporting on the Titanic disaster. However he was interested to know more about the Californian, a ship within sight of the Titanic that did nothing to help. I found it quite intriguing and well written and well read.

Intriguing, richly descriptive Aussie story

I found this book very easy to listen to. Reader had nice voice and read really well. It kept me interested all the way through. A strength of the book was the illustration, 'show not tell' as my English teacher used to say. The writer had many insights into various circumstances so must have done a lot of research or experienced any things herself. The actual story was not extensive and came out in bits throughout but this was made up for by the richness of descriptions.

I watched the movie Blackfish a few months ago and found that really interesting, so when this book turned up I jumped at it. I did not realize that killer whales were still kept in captivity and made to do tricks. Added to the ethical and animal rights issues is that of corporate greed which makes it even more compelling. There are so many reasons why it shouldn't be happening and this book makes that even clearer than the film. It is very easy listening I got through it fast because I just couldn't put it down. If you were captivated by Blackfish you need to read this book.
