    I love this kind of book Lots of weird facts about sea creatures you didn’t know even existed Some of this book looses all sense of facts though There is entire section discussing what sea creature could have swallowed Jonah Silly I’ll say the speculation was thorough though Zoology comes into play in the last chapters Easy read Would keep around just for the interesting facts section

    An amazing book and an easy read for anyone There was lots of great information about the different oddities of the marine ecosystem I would consider this a must read for anyone interested in the Marine Biology or Marine Science fields or the oceans in general

    I would have given stars for the interesting topics if it hadn’t read like a bunch of encyclopedia entries than a book

    This was a really good book but I feel like it could have of a structure The beginning was about the most strongest biggest etc of the marine world and then it went on for at least 20 pages about Jonah being swallowed by a whale and then 20 about the possibility that he was swallowed by a shark I really liked this book but the emphasis was on the wrong things I feel and that's why I gave it this rating

    I really enjoyed this book as it was just a bunch of short segments about different sealife facts As a conservationist educator it's given me some new info to pass along to those I get to interact with So why am I giving it three stars if I liked it so much? Wellll the last 14 13 was very cryptozoology focused with 4 chapters on the biblical story of Jonah and the Whale a tale of who dunit It was a bit annoying and caused lots of eye rolling

    A book with some interesting facts but it reads like a list than a book Too generic for reference and not engaging enough for a good read
