HorribleTerribleTripeI don't even know how to give this a bad enough reviewThe author has contacted me through goodreadscom to ask that I revise or remove this review He even cited another 5 star review I gave to a book in my collection as proof of my philosophical opposition to his point of viewI generally don't write any review and often don't even assign stars to books I use this website primarily for organizing my own books and to line up potential reads Reviews are given for the few personal friends who follow me Those who know me know the personality behind the review and that I'd welcome discussion if they enjoyed the bookHowever I understand how the author might not appreciate the brevity I still stand behind my preference to give very informal reviews I am not and never claimed to be a legitimate reviewer I read for personal pleasureThe biggest problem I had with the book was the lack of believable conflict The author's antagonists were against whale song research based on religious grounds Honestly I AM a religious person but was confused by this I wondered if there was a religious movement against whale song research of which I was not aware Have I been missing out on my opportunity to protest in Hawaii I even did a little searching for documented religious opposition to the research and found none Though this is anecdotal I also could find no other religious friends who have any opposition to whale communication research I didn't feel the author articulated a true opposition to the research he supports For this reason I didn't believe the conflict Clearly the author is familiar with the technology used in the story If he could have shown the same passion when writing about characters I may have been invested in the story The human element seemed a bit hurried andor superficial while the technical explanations were not totally engaging and therefore seemed a bit too long
