So many emotions ran through me as I read this.

The story is heartbreaking, but in parts uplifting, full of joy and misery at the same time.

John’s love for the animals is obvious from beginning to end. His journey from trainer to activist is eye-opening. I have never been to SeaWorld, but through advertisement I fully bought into what a happy place it is, and I always wanted to see the Orca show. After reading this book, I will never go to SeaWorld. I now understand that how they are kept and made to perform is wrong on every level.

I applaud John for writing this book and helping people like me to see what it’s really like.
