It is 2051. CONTROL, the government of Europe, keeps everyone happy in a virtual reality where music made by dolphins gives exquisite pleasure. When Saul Grant, a writer, discovers the truth about the music, the illusion is shattered. He soon sets out to free the dolphins but CONTROL is aware of his actions and will stop him at any cost. Paperback-only version. Also available with Audio CDs including complete text recordings from the book.
'What distinguishes the series from all the others is the zest and freshness of the text. Where the emphasis in other series is on plain and straightforward language, Cambridge English Reading texts typically use very modern expressions and the dialogue is faster moving. This has an impact on the quality of the audio cassettes, which make for very enjoyable listening.' David R. Hill, Survey Review: Readers, ELT Journal
'It was only a matter of time before a major ELT publisher set out to challenge the market dominance of Penguin Classics in the area of readers … CUP have hit back admirably. With something for everyone in your classes, this series is well worth investing in. In fact, it's going to be a difficult act to follow by other publishers.' IATEFL Issues
'The series breaks new ground in two respects. The first is the light and informal style of writing. It is notoriously difficult to write fluent prose using restricted lexis and syntax. Part of the secret is to use word and grammar lists flexibly; but it requires flair and a good ear to produce prose and dialogue that read so well and give such a genuine flavour of modern idiom.' English Teaching Professional
'These were a very good read: exciting fast-moving stories at all levels, and a good mixture of subjects. Most touched on up-to-date themes, such as corruption, refugees, psychology, hunger, feminism, or ecology without being prosy, or moralising.' BaNina Vivanco, SATEFL Newsletter Vol 19 No 3
'This is a well presented, authentic looking series of readers that students should enjoy. They are graded into five levels, and the accompanying cassette will be useful, especially for pronunciation audio versions are very popular with students.' Josephine Caruana, Network News, Issue 34

Actually, the idea of the story is OK, but the author didn't carry out the idea very well.
Some characters of the book are good, for example Captain Marrs, but you don't know enough about the main actor of the story, Saul Grand.
The story isn't very exciting and it is too short, which isn't so bad, because the book is not that great but as I normally enjoy reading it's a pity.
It is illogical, too. Why could wolves life outside and not people? Maybe, Control just said, that people die outside, but it isn't say in the book.
Another reason, why I don't like it is, that the book hasn't much to do with dolphins. The title of the book doesn't fit to the story very well.
We had to read the book Dolphin music at school and for a schoolbook it is okay The story is a bit crazy and very boring. The title of the book doesn't fit to the story. Because most of the book is about control and Beatcon, two crazy organisation and only a little part of the book is about dolphins. The book is very easy to read because the vocabulary is not very different.

Here's Nadine and I want to tell you how I found the book.
It's call Dolphin Music.
I don't like this book because I don't like storys like this.
I found that it was very hard to read but after a while it was okay.
The Content is not bed and sometimes it is full of suspense.
It's played in the future. I don't like such storys.
The charcters are very great.
Just read it if you like to get to know the future!
I guess at the beginning it's very difficult to understand this book, but then it might be fun to read it. The story of Dolphin Music is interesting and it's full of suspense. The character's one- dimensional but have several and convincing characteristics, that's very good. For people who like to read interesting books which plays in the future, that's the right decision.
I think that is a good story. At first it is difficult to understand the situation. After a few chapters, the story is full of suspense and it might be fun.
The text is easy to understand, even if you don't know all the words.
I think it is a book for people, who like stories about the future and like drama/action books.
I think the book dolphin Music isn't so good. It's good for English learners, because the words are easy to understand but the story is illogical. Sometimes they change places but you don't know why or how. Actually, the ideas of the author are good, but the story isn't detailed enough .I hadn't bought it for my own, only to read it in school.
