    Fun read, super engaging. Enjoyed the dual first-person narration, which read more like the narratives of two separate people than some dual narratives. A few needless sex scenes that I skimmed but were at least short, and unnecessary usage of the word cripple, but all in all, a very r...

    At this point I have only read this in draft form and LOVED LOVED LOVED it. I seriously cannot wait for the publishing so I can read it in final form. ...

    Full disclosure: I was read Speak the Ocean in draft-form and have also read it in this final-form. Speak the Ocean is one of the most original, creative concepts I've recently read and one that very nearly destroyed my heart. Rebecca Enzor's passion for science, for the ocean and i...

    Speak the Ocean is an excellent read. The characters are vibrant and well-developed; Finn wasn't my cup of tea but he was mostly admirable and Erie is a sweetheart I was cheering for the whole way through. The plot was well-paced and even though I knew what was coming I still didn'...

    I love the twists in this novel. Like Niku, one of my favorite characters. He's nothing like what we view consider dolphins to be. He also has so much character. Erie was great, too. I love how the Mer weren't bad but they weren't good either. They just were. And it was the individual ...

    Speak the Ocean is a compelling novel that deals with the question of who we see as worthy of humanity, compassion, and empathy, and why. I've seen it described as Blackfish meets The Little Mermaid and that's not far off the mark. Erie's story is heartfelt, at moments tragic, whil...

    This book was nearly 400 pages long. I finished last night. Unlike most novels, I took my time reading it. I savored the story because I didn't want to leave this world once immersed. Terrible pun, but I couldn't resist. It's also true. You can read the book blurb and other reviews ...

    This was a novel I thoroughly enjoyed. The characters were fleshed out and well written, the plot moved at a good pace, and it had raw emotion that really spoke to me. I loved how the characters weren't overly good or evil, but actually act and come across as real people. I loved Finn'...

    SPEAK THE OCEAN is an incredible debut, filled with vibrant character, breathtaking stakes and a highly realistic take on what it would inevitably be like if mermaids were captured and used in a theme park. The morality of marine life in captivity for human amusement is key to the hear...

    Loved it! Erie and Finn just want to live their best lives in their own worlds. I was lucky enough to read the very first draft, and it?s even better now. Such a great story! ...

    This started out so good but then never went anywhere. I'm not sure what this book wants to be. It is pitched as Blackfish meets The Little Mermaid and has the potential to explore corporate greed and human entitlement with the backdrop of a mermaid amusement park. But all of that ...

    The voice in this book jumps off the page. Even before you know what's going on, it hooks you and draws you into the story. Just exceptionally well written. And the story is great, too. The book is told from two points of view in alternating chapters. Finn is a trainer at a marine ...

    SPEAK THE OCEAN had me immediately at a disadvantage because it takes place in Key West, revolves around the ocean, and has boats in it. Oh, and also mermaids. These are a few of my favorite things (yes, to be sung to the tune of the song from "The Sound of Music"). Between that and...

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit, it takes an old favorite of mine, jumbles it up and tosses the dice out to retell it in a whole new way. One of my favorite characters, Niku, is a dolphin, but he?s not anything like Flipper. He?s more like Cujo, and he?s definitely no Flounder...

    I won an ARC of this book from the author. As a kid, I dreamed of working at Sea World, and I was obsessed with mermaids! So, as soon as I read the description for this book, I knew I had to read it! What an original concept. I really enjoyed getting to know Finn and Erie. Rebecca ...

    This was a lot of fun. It is grim grim grim! Things are grim and then they get really grim before they get better. But they do get better. There's enough world-building here to support a sequel and I'd definitely read one if it ever popped up on my radar, and I'll be sure to check ...

    There's blood in the water. Enzor's terrific debut doesn't play nice with your concept of friendly Mer people who want to be part of this world. An emotional and sometimes vicious story that will leave you guessing until the end, I heartily recommend. ...

    I was so excited to finally get my hands on this book and was not disappointed. Pitched as Blackfish meets The Little Mermaid, I feel that the comps are fairly on point with the content. I was throughly entertained the entire book and on edge the second half seriously considering wheth...

    I learned about this incredible author over a year ago when I got hooked on her short story and her voice in "Putting the Science in Fiction." I can't wait to read Speak the Ocean because it will open the gateway to making Mer the next big thing in the sci-fi world. ...
