Absolutely Disgusting. This is only a book designed to make you think marine parks that feature cetaceans is morally acceptable. (which it's not). Dolphins have no reason to be in captivity in the first place. Nor do people have the right to force them to preform to get their food. The story itself was heartwarming, but the captivity part just doesn't reflect current public opinion on keeping these highly intelligent non-human persons in captivity. I personally believe that dolphins and whales are more intelligent than we are.

So I will give this book a 3/5. Story plot, great -- but captivity, cruel.
