Book review of "The Dolphin Song – (#Animal Healer 2)"

The Dolphin Song..

This story is well written in a language which can be understood by the CHILD within us!!

A book filled with a child’s innocence, thoughts which can weave wonders, belief so powerful, and love so unconditional.

I had a look at this book in my college library.

There was a picture of a dolphin and behind it, the dreaded ocean where its life was uncertain. That was enough to get me curious & the next thing you know, i started reading it.

The cast of the book is as follows:

Martine – A special child with healing powers

Gwen Thomas – Her grand-mother

Grace , Tendai – Her well-wishers

& some school friends.

My Synopsis:

It all began in the first book, when she fulfilled the prophecy of being the animal healer.

The prophecy stated that a young child who will successfully ride the white giraffe JEMMY will be the one who will help animals.

She did that, and thus was known as the special child, the chosen one!

The story continues in the form of a “Sardine run” which Martine and her school friends are going to witness.

While on voyage, she happens to see a herd of dolphins.

They seem to be telling her something, but she can’t understand.

Maybe it was a warning of things to come, and guess what.. the next hour brought a violent storm and a broken fence meant a set of kids got trapped in the ocean, left to die in the darkness.

The kids knew that the ocean has predators in form of sharks, but they also knew from a previous school visit that sharks can survive on plankton and they don’t eat humans unless they consider it as a threat.

Out of nowhere, dolphins emerge and take the kids to a nearby island.

They name each dolphin a unique name based on some feature which makes every dolphin unique.

The island is isolated, humanity is extinct and the kids at such a tender age start to fend for their survival.

One fine day, they spot 21 dolphins who drag themselves to the sand, to die.

The kids have no much strength, but a heart of gold.They take turns, keep them in living condition until the waves take them away.

They do help 20 but one old dolphin kept coming back.

It died but threw out a steel cable out of her mouth. the kids start wondering, where did the cable come from? Who is behind all this? Why are the dolphins ready to die? Is something apart from sharks so dangerous that they prefer to suicide.?

The rest of the plot covers all the answers to the above questions.

The climax of this book results in,

The kids saving the day with full courage.

The kids returning a favor towards the dolphins.

The strengthening of friendship between all kids which didn’t exist prior to the trip.

& finally the dolphins.

I would like to complete this review with one quote from the book which was too overwhelming.

“The thing about dolphins is,  you always seem to smile when you look at em”

James Patterson – Kiss the Girls Book Review

Kiss the Girls by James Patterson is my first James Patterson books, and I must say, what a storyline! It indeed is Truly magnificent. Here’s my honest and unbiased Book review. 

I’ve read some other James Patterson books too that have been made into movies, which I’ll review later. Mostly, in all of James Patterson’s books list, he portrays the killers as classy, elegant, full of different fetishes, and freakishly smart. In this book too, there are two killers whose names are “Casanova” & “The Gentleman”.

Both have their style of killing, preferences of girls, etc. The hero of this book and series happens to be the super detective “Alex Cross”. There are more than 20+ books in this series.

Alex Cross is a man of precision. He has a past but lives for his family and would die for his country. His work instincts help him get a pattern that can solve cases from outside the box thinking. The rest of the story is just too good to be true.

There is drama, planning, execution and a lot of mystery in Kiss the Girls. Hence if you are expecting a Murder mystery book, then “Kiss the Girls” is the one you must read.

In most of the Alex Cross movies, Morgan Freeman has portrayed his role. Since then, whenever I read a book, Morgan Freeman’s image sticks up to Alex Cross. The same happened in Kiss the Girls!

Nora Roberts – Face the Fire Book Review

Another Book review of Nora Roberts!!

Hats off to Nora Roberts. She shares a good storyline, explains all characters well, and a good mystery. Even though I could only get my hands on the third book from the trilogy of three sisters, everything was well explained..!!


I got this book in a sale, thus on reading it for a while, I realize there is a possibility of a few books earlier to this. But the magic she created with her writing was so good, that even though I didn’t read the previous two parts, I could grasp & understand the maximum of the past scenes.

Such is her writing, that you automatically visualize the scene happening right in front of you!! Brilliant work, No wonder her books rate highly. I’m not gonna right the entire story as I want you folks to read it.

My rating – 5/5 

Nora Roberts writes magical and thriller stories. Her stories hook up and latch on to you like a virus. I’m sure you will keep reading this until the story ends eventually. So do read this as soon as possible.
