Cachalot by Alan Dean Foster. Chapter I. Mustapha sat on the end of Rorqual Towne and was not seasick. There was nothing any save an outsider would have found remarkable in this.

Cachalot by Alan Dean Foster. Mustapha had lived all his long life on Cachalot, and those who are born to that world know less of seasickness than a worm does of Andromeda. All born on Cachalot rest in two cradles: their nursery, and the greater nursery of the all-encompassing Mother Ocean. Those who arrived on Cachalot from other worlds did not long remain if they proved susceptible to motion sickness.

Cachalot (1980) is a science fiction novel by American writer Alan Dean Foster. Cachalot is an ocean planet where humans have begun building floating cities. It is also the same planet where all of Earth’s cetaceans were transplanted six hundred years ago after the Covenant of Peace was enacted with all d ocean dwellers. Four of these cities have been destroyed when a middle-aged scientist and her late-teen daughter are dispatched to the planet to discover the source of the attacks.

These are great reads and quick, you are almost done before you realize you started.

Minor rub marks on the spine seam, tanning to the page edges.

Minor rub marks on the spine seam, tanning to the page edges unusual setting, a brief appearance of Flinx, freaky ending. most def a winner amongst the commonwealth series, probably the best stand-alone aside from Midworld (Bloodhype was priceless but I count that as a flinx tale). 0.

After the first chapter or two reading "Cachalot" I didn't think I was going to like it. After a little more reading I realized I had been hooked and didn't know it. Cachalot is a planet covered 99% by oceans and the humans that live on floating cities and only a couple of land cities are being destroyed by something. The scientists adventure to find out the truth about why or what is destroying these cities. The adventure is personal enough with the crews interactions to be interesting, and with banter between the scientists and the cetaceans, and the deep sea peril keeps the story adventurous enough to keep you entertained. A fun read.

I'm biased when it comes to Alan Dean Foster. He was the first author I ever fell in love with. Cachalot was a another winner in my book. It had action, thrills, a little romance and suspense. I'm normally very good at predicting storylines, be it movie or book, but Cachalot kept me guessing. The ending totally caught me off guard. This is a book I'll read again and save for my kids to read when they get older.

This is exactly how the seller described it and I would buy from him again.

Readable, interesting and imaginative.

Thought experiments are wonderful. This one captures the genuine feel of "otherness" that I think is a trademark of good sci-fi. Combined with a clear depiction of how this "otherness"! affects persons, and the way they interact. The attempt to portray the personality of whales, as something decidedly not human, but none the less clearly true personalities is great.

Entertaining book, fun reading. Alan Dean Foster wrote this book with lots of imagination - vivid descriptions and a good plot.
Great futuristic sci-fi! I love Fosters work as well as a storyline that is easy to follow. It is worth a second read on a snowy night in Syracuse!!
