War of the Whales
- A True Story
- By: Joshua Horwitz
- Narrated by: Holter Graham
- Length: 13 hrs and 38 mins
War of the Whales is the gripping tale of a crusading attorney who stumbles on one of the US Navy’s best-kept secrets: a submarine detection system that floods entire ocean basins with high-intensity sound - and drives whales onto beaches. As Joel Reynolds launches a legal fight to expose and challenge the Navy program, marine biologist Ken Balcomb witnesses a mysterious mass stranding of whales near his research station in the Bahamas.
Excellent story, a real eye opener

So boring I couldn't finish
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This "story" never took off. The extreme detail and lack of any character development made it a chore to listen. I was interested in whales. I like science. This story just didn't have any characters that I could relate to or find any human interest in their adventure.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I enjoy a wide range of books.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrator did a good job with boring material.
What character would you cut from War of the Whales?
The characters were not interesting in the least
