Today I want to say about Ichthyander...yes, Ichthyander whom I adore...whom I like  most...for whom I cried out loudly when he lost his fiance...I guess a lot of you catch me by the time who I am telling about, yes, he is Ichthyander of "The Amphibian'!

Though I have read a translated copy of the main book but I know that translation is too good to reach to the main.

Anyway, first I heard about the story from my mother when I were a mere child and became fantasized about it. I got chance to read the book when I was in class-6, here high school starts from class-6.

You, who already have read this science-fiction, I know, feel in the same way how do I feel. But, in spite of it, I want to take a chance to describe my own feelings about it.

Ichthyander was an amphibian -man who had gill along with the lungs. So, he could take breath under water . He had a Dolphin, he liked to eat uncooked fish and liked to sleep in the water instead his warm bed. Along with it, he had huge knowledge about the underwater world but he could not tell the date and month...how strange he was!

Once I got a chance to hear a radio- drama in a holiday-noon. It was regular in those days to listen to radio programs along with our mother. And, obviously the play was based on this novel.

How lucky I was ...it reminded me about my favorite character...and how can I forget that scene where Ichthyander was calling Gutiare, standing by the pebble sea- shore but the Sea and not  Gutiare respond to him...instead the sea sent the echoes ...Gutiare..Gutiare...

I cried several times and I know I will cry again  if I read this book and specially those verses  ...I know many of you will do the same thing!

I've not heard of this story either. Sounds interesting. Kind of like a tv show when I was a kid called "Man From Atlantis" with Patrick Duffy. I was all excited when they announced at the end of summer it was going to be a new show in the fall. He was a man who developed gills and webbed hands when he got in the water. Anyway, nice story.
