Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mallory | 2/20/2014

    " The writer's experience with Grayson and her passion for the ocean is wonderful, but this book should be marketed for children. It is very simple to read and could have been written as a short story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 2/7/2014

    " Very short but sweet little book about a girl who helps a lost baby whale while swimming in the ocean. What makes the book amazing is the story is true. I'm giving it to Max and Sophie to read as well. The author is rather flowery in her descriptions, but she has a palpable respect for the ocean. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matt | 2/6/2014

    " This book is spilling over with just horrendous prose -- truly eyerolling and cringe-inducing metaphors litter every page. Thankfully, it's short. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 2/5/2014

    " Absolutely enchanting! one of those quick, deep, and thoroughly entrancing stories that is just long enough to leave you with that after glow of having read something truly important! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 1/27/2014

    " All the more magical for being true. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/25/2014

    " A true story about one woman's swim in the Pacific with a whale named Grayson. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eriele the Mermaid ❤ | 1/23/2014

    " It was great. Fun, like I was the real one swimming with a huge baby whale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 1/22/2014

    " My daughters book but I read it in one day at the beach. Magical "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephannie Garcia | 1/17/2014

    " A very inspiring story of an athlete. Teaches a lot of trust and care not only to us Humans but also to Animals, for they're the Lords creation too <3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kish.Pisani | 1/14/2014

    " Nice easy read, especially if you read Swimming to Antartica. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/11/2014

    " A very sweet story, meanders a bit, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 12/27/2013

    " I enjoyed the tale of her swimming with the baby whale until they found its mother. there were parts that were awfully repetitive - I'm not sure how many more ways she could describe the pressure of diving more than 10 feet or so. she tried, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcie | 12/13/2013

    " a fun read, you get a sense you are out in the ocean with the author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekkila | 11/30/2013

    " How great would it be to get to experience something as great as swimming with a whale for hours. The story was very touching. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilena | 11/25/2013

    " I loved this true story which has some of the most beautiful descriptions of the sea that I've ever read...... and is both a fairy tale and a miracle at the same time "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Fallon | 11/10/2013

    " read it in one night, truth is better than fiction.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley Green | 10/10/2013

    " Another documentation of one of Lynne Cox's swimming adventures and it was a very enjoyable read. It documents an amazing experience she had and it's a very quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess Monster | 10/9/2013

    " This is a fast, inspiring book about a teenage girl who ends up swimming with a baby grey whale. Definitely a feel good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 7/27/2013

    " Not the most compelling nonfiction I've encountered, but interesting in a quiet, new-agey way. The fact that Cox, as a 17-year old, swam with a baby gray whale for hours while searching for his mother, is certainly amazing. Grayson, as read by Cox, makes a decent audio book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin Murrell | 3/16/2013

    " A bit redundant and corny at times. Cute story. Kids and young adults should really like this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alyssa Wayt | 2/3/2013

    " This book is really cute. It is about a lost baby whale finding his way back to his mother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Szydlo | 12/9/2012

    " An open-water, teenage swimmer describes an incident which happened while on a training swim off the coast of California. She encounters a lost baby gray whale and tries to help it find its mother. A short, interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leila | 4/27/2012

    " Lynn Cox is an endurance long distance swimmer and practiced off the coast of southern Calfornia. This is an accounting of an experience she had of swimming with a baby graywhale after it had been separated from it's mother. Endearing read for swimmers and lovers of nature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 10/1/2011

    " The distance-swimmer Lynne Cox had an extended experience with a lost baby whale when she was a young swimmer training in California. Grayson is her remembrance of that experience. This would be a beautiful read-aloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 salinthebay | 8/15/2011

    " A little gem. Great gift for anyone who loves to ocean swim and wishes for a baby whale to accompany them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bsmiz | 5/22/2011

    " I loved the story in this book and will read it aloud to my daughter. I find her writing style a bit boring though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 5/13/2011

    " Very short but sweet little book about a girl who helps a lost baby whale while swimming in the ocean. What makes the book amazing is the story is true.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carissa | 3/29/2011

    " A little boring and overly simple/sentimental. Lacks depth. Short, which is a plus. Not a waste of time but not a life-changer either. Extremely copious descriptive language takes up at least half the book, because the story itself has such little content. A neat little tale though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heaven | 3/12/2011

    " This was one of the best books i have ever read.So much amazing detail it makes you feel like you are in the ocean with the whale and the girl :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Todd | 2/17/2011

    " Sweet and endearing. Totally believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margy | 1/23/2011

    " I love whales and the story is interesting, but the writing was a bit slow and boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devon | 1/16/2011

    " I love this story it was a short one.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 1/8/2011

    " It's about the length of a children's chapter books, so it's a quick and easy read, but it's a cute story. She's a good writer, and it makes me want to read her other book. "
