The Dolphin House
The Dolphin House | Audrey Schulman
3 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
Based on the true story of the 1965 "dolphin house" experiment, this spellbinding novel captures the tenor of the social experiments of the 1960's in award-winning author Audrey Schulman's modern, feminist style. It is 1965, and Cora, a young deaf woman, buys a one-way ticket to the island of St. Thomas, where she discovers four dolphins held in captivity as part of an experiment led by the obsessive Dr. Bloom. Drawn by a strong connection to the dolphins, Cora falls in with the scientists and discovers her need to protect the animals. Recognizing Cora's knack for communication, Bloom uses her for what will turn into one of the most fascinating experiments in modern science: an attempt to teach the dolphins human language by creating a home in which she and they can live together. As the experiment progresses, Cora forges a remarkable bond with the creatures, until her great instincts clash with the male-dominated world of science. As a terrible scandal threatens to engulf the experiment, Cora's fight to save the dolphins becomes a battle to save herself.

TheBookDream @AmyG Pretty good thanks. Positive test was a surprise. I have a lot of chronic stuff (allergies, migraines, etc) that I always suspected a mild case of Covid would hide in well. I was right 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
