review The Dolphin People

Ane crashes in the middle of the jungle Stranded deep within ia with no hope of rescue they are discovered by the Yayomi a violent and superstitious Stone Age tribe The Yayomi believe the strange looking foreigners are freshwater dolphins in human form I'm honestly of two opinions on this book On the one hand it's a very harsh read that I can see upsetting some readers with the scenes it depicts and the characters involved On the other hand it's all done so well that it's hard to knock it because the content is so graphic at times The story is told with wonderful prose and builds in such a way that bizarre and gross as it can be sometimes I never once wanted to put the book down and in fact wanted to rush headlong through it I think that says a lot for a book that grows from a sort of adventure story that might almost work as a young adult novel into a fever dream of life's cruel realities taking place in the remote jungle dwelling of a stone age tribe It's a great book and one I'm very glad I took the time to read Would I read it again I'm not sure I feel like it's a book that would be hard to read again knowing certain details and how it ends now Like maybe a read once a decade or type of thing I would say check it out though It's definitely an experience and not one you would normally get Just be prepared because it has those moments that honestly turned even my stomach a bit
