    One thought on “The Storm Bottle”

    1. Two things attracted me to The Storm Bottle . . . Firstly, the cover - gorgeous, isn't it? - and, secondly, I was intrigued to read a paranormal fantasy about dolphins. I mean, everything else has been done, right? I think all that's left are fleas, sea cucumbers and . . . okay, okay, you get my meaning. Dolphins are fresh and new.I was not disappointed by Nick Green's efforts. If I were to sum up this book in a few words, I'd say: Spellbinding. Imaginative. Different. Unexpected delight. Huge f [...]

    2. The start of this story is a little slow, then again as soon as you begin reading you may as well be watching a movie. I honestly believe this story could be as big as A Dolphin Tale or Nim's Island.Anyway, it's the perfect start. Girl and her younger step brother go out on a boat with an older guy that's friends (and yes JUST friends) with the girl. before they hit open sea they spot a bottlenose dolphin, which is odd considering wild dolphins don't generally go near the shore. Bibi (the Girl) [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this story set in the Bermuda about a boy and dolphin swapping bodies. Bibi and Michaels parents get married and Michael is forced from his life in England where he is a swimming champ and excels at school. Bibi loves her life in the Bermuda, where she has enjoys trips out to sea on her friends boat collecting old bottles that she finds washed up on the shores. Bibi tries to show Michael how lovely life can be in the Bermuda, but he is sulky and distant. Until one day they see s [...]

    4. Excellent read for all, not just for children. I laughed and I cried , such wonderful concepts of dolphins and whales and how they might perceive the human world

    5. Read more of my reviews at My Full Bookshelf ReviewsOkay, so this book? Positively amazing. Practically flawless. Simply stunning. Do you understand how much I loved this? I feel like I have to use a gif to communicate how much I adore this book: This is GIF status, people. If I give any book a gif, it means it's either really terrible or unbelievably fantastic.I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. Bibi was an awesome, easy to like main character. Michael was slightly less easy to l [...]

    6. So this book is very different from what I normally read. This book is DEFINITELY geared towards the younger YA, however even adults can enjoy this tale.Each chapter is told from a different Point Of View, this makes it easy to follow along with whose head your in. I would have to say that I preferred Bibi's POV, but I didn't mind switching to Michaels head at all. The characters are well developed and relatively believable. We have a relatively typical situation in the beginning with a newly fo [...]

    7. I love marine life. So when I got a request to join in a blog tour for a book that featured dolphins, I happily agreed.I really really wish I could give this book to myself when I was twelve and read this instead of Island of the Blue Dolphins, which has nothing to do with dolphins whatsoever. Nick Green is absolutely clever. I loved how he took the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle and made sense of it using the marine life. It’s hard to put my thoughts into an actual review, but I’ll give it [...]

    8. I confess, I'm a big fan of animal stories and stories about the ocean. This book has many things that I enjoy reading about, the ocean, other places (Bermuda in this case), animals, and magic. Switching places is not an uncommon storyline, but I've never read one quite like this. Dolphins are an animal that I find endlessly fascinating, both beautiful and savage at the same time. There are of course stories of dolphins saving human lives, but not quite the way Rodrigo saves Michael. It was intr [...]

    9. 3.5 starsThis was such an interesting book, not quite like anything I've ever read before. The whole incorporation of dolphins and sea life was just awesome. When I was little I wanted to be a marine biologist because I wanted to work with dolphins. For some reason dolphins seem to hold an attraction for most people. There is a certain draw to them and I love how this book captured that attraction and blossomed it into this amazing tale.I loved the Bermuda setting. It's mystical and fits perfect [...]

    10. When I first started this book, I thought, oh no, I'm not going to be able to finish this book. The first chapter or so was a bit slow. Then, it happened. Nick Green introduced me to a whole new world under the sea! The story follows the adventure of two siblings, Michael and his step-sister, Bibi. It is told from two points of veiws, Bibi's and Michael's. I normally don't like it when a story has multiple POV's but the author did a really good job with keeping it simple and easy to follow. On a [...]

    11. 3.5 starsThis is a very original story. I don't think that I have ever run across anything like it before.]Michael and Bibi are thrust into a family together by the marriage of Bibi's father and Michael's mother. They don't quite get along. They are tolerant, but both long for something different.Their something different comes along. Michael is rescued from drowning by a dolphin, and surprise, the dolphin and Micheal trade places. They now are in different worlds than they know how to live in. [...]

    12. Be ready for an exciting adventure, along with some sadness, depending on how you look at it.Michael's Mother has married Bibi's father, and thus he has left England and moved to Bermuda. He is not a happy camper. When his step-sister Bibi gets him to go out on the water for a fun time, neither has any idea how their lives are going to change.We end up traveling with a school of dolphins, and we meet bullying head on. We also are confronted with dolphins who would rather perform, and are given t [...]

    13. Is it your dream to swim with dolphins? I know a few people (myself included) that would love to. I would be happy just to be able to touch one! :) In this novel it tells the tale of BiBi and Michael, both from their POVs. A boating accident has left Michael in the body of Roddy (a dolphin) and vice versa. Each character gets to learn more about themselves throughout the story. They learn about what they take for granted in life, what it’s like to lose everything that you know. How would you r [...]

    14. it's Freaky Friday meets Sea World. while the concept of this book is interesting, it just didn't grab me. I finished the book but it took much longer than it should have considering how fast I read. The best part was probably the last 10% of the book (not sure how many pages since it was on my ereader)viewing this book for StoreyBookReviews, was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

    15. This book has great cover appeal. Dolphins, rays of light, and font, size, color, and orientation are perfect. It is simple, lends imagery to the title, and is clean, all features that I look for reviewing a book, especially if not from a Big-Box publisher.- See more at: musingwithcrayolakym/3
