Reader Reviews

Whales and Dolphins are wonderful
I was never a fan of dolphins and whales but I bought this book just for a change. Once I had read it I was the biggest fan of whales and dolphins you could imagine. I rate this book 100 out of 100. It is the best book I have ever read in my life. I have read this 5 times already and I've only had it for one week. I definitely recommend it.
