Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
PW's starred review commended the ``gripping'' narrative, in which scientific speculation, a feminist slant and a school of helpful dolphins coalesce in the tales of dual heroines born more than two million years apart. Ages 12-up. (June)

    Not Very Good

    This book was requiered for my english class and is very boring. Only some parts were even mildly interesting. I found each page even harder to stay focused on than the last. Save yourself the misery. DON'T READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!

    My review of this book

    I think this book is pretty boring to be honest. But it's a good example for palentology. It's also a two sided story 'NOW' and 'THEN.' 'NOW' is about a little girl who is on an arcleogical dig with her father. 'THEN' is about a girl named Li. Li is from a LONG time ago. Li is a very smart person in the group.

    Thought-provoking for students of biology

    This is essentially a dramatization of Elaine Morgan's book 'The Descent of Woman' which argues that humans must have evolved by the seaside to explain many of our traits like upright posture and grasping ability of newborns. I was pleased and astonished to see this in a form that is easily accessible to kids. It is aimed at a high-school and older readership, but my precocious 8 year old loved it!

    A Bone From A Dry Sea

    i believe peter dickenson is a very interesting author. mr.dickenson in his award winning book a bone from a dry sea was as you may know or find out has a different perspective of this book. there are not one but two characters in this story. there are two different stories also that combine into one at the end! the main story will probaly hit you at the end. it gets better as you read and dont skip pages or chapters because then it will mess you up. you will enjoy the story after you complete everything and really the story is good!

    A Bone From A Dry Sea

    i believe reading this book really didn't help me at all. Some point in the story was pretty good but the rest was really bad.if u decide on reading this book pay close attention to how the chapters change everytime u understand something. After a while u may like it. it has a major characters called-Li,Vinny. Thats all im saying so....... enjoy
