Science Fiction • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1983

Carrying humans' affinity with dolphins to new heights, STARTIDE RISING tells the adventure of a starship crewed by dolphins. George Wilson is undaunted by dolphin-speak and its variations in dialect, syntax, and tone as they reflect the speaker's emotional state. He also masters the many place and people names. He is just as adept with the speech patterns, inflections, and vocabulary of the various alien races that are interfering with the dolphins' hope of getting home safely and quickly. As the plot thickens and the relationships between the characters become more complex, Wilson's narration is a calm and steady beacon. J.E.M.
