Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Voice-over actress Campbell delivers a powerful performance of journalist Casey's moving (and often heart-wrenching) title exploring one of our planet's most complex and mysterious species. Campbell possesses a gift for channeling the personalities of the people who Casey encounters during her travels; this talent makes for a gripping listening experience. For example, Campbell perfectly captures the ethereal charm of a New Age marine guru named Joan Ocean. She also scores in her colorful rendering of Lawrence Makili, a native of the Solomon Islands who has channeled his considerable grit and savvy into activism on behalf of the beleaguered dolphins in the waters of his nation. In the section of the narrative devoted to Taiji, Japan's notorious annual dolphin hunt, Campbell's ability to project the tones of bitter confrontation without descending into simplistic caricature is a notable accomplishment. Listeners will be utterly enthralled. A Doubleday hardcover. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
