Review: Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish

Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish
Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish by John Hargrove
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One does not have to have seen BLACKFISH, the acclaimed documentary on SeaWorld, to read and appreciate John Hargrove’s book. In simple, clear prose we are taken inside the world of killer whale trainers and the magnificent animals they worked with in captivity. It’s equal parts caustic and empathetic and, for those of us fascinated by the questions and issues posed in BLACKFISH, it’s a phenomenal additional read.
