Reviews

‘Seems to be pitching for a TV series with its show-stopping opening...A brilliantly written and passionate book...timely and urgent.'

- Guardian

‘Gripping...Casey is a joyously lyrical writer, and her descriptions of dolphin and human behaviour are mostly laugh-out-loud funny.'

- Mail on Sunday

‘An extraordinary, sometimes disturbing, journey into the world of dolphins... By turns uplifting and heartbreaking, filled with well-researched facts and personal adventures, this a vitally important book, both for the animals, and for us.'

- Philip Hoare, author of Leviathan or, The Whale and The Sea Inside

‘As much a beautiful, well-researched narrative about dolphins as it is a powerful and timely voice of reason urging us to connect with nature.'

- Maya Plass, Marine and Coastal Ecologist, Guest Presenter on BBC Spring/Autumnwatch and author of the RSPB Handbook of the Seashore

Casey uses her journalistic eye to skilfully expose the duality of our relationship with the ocean's most charismatic inhabitants. Voices in the Ocean exposes the shameful abuse we inflict on our cetacean cousins.'

- Tim Ecott, author of Stealing Water and Neutral Buoyancy: Adventures in a Liquid World

‘A meticulously reported global odyssey' 

- Outside magazine
