Goodreads: “Steve refused to surrender. Even though he knew the creature was right behind him, he wouldn’t quit. He would make it. Just as that beacon of hope began to shine down upon him, the bright sun overhead vanished from view. Confused, he gazed wide-eyed as the daylight grew dim. Then he realized the ultimate horror: the creature had overtaken him, its jaws opened wide.”
“He was in its mouth.”
This was a fun book – so fast paced that it was over before I knew it. I have to admit, the 546 pages was rather intimidating – most stories start to bore me by page 350 so I stopped reading longer books (other than the ones I really liked like Supernaturals (1100+) and The Shining (600+)).
But I decided to give it a go because the cover caught my interest. Well written and full of interesting tidbits about marine life, I have been glued to it until my eyes started hurting and went blurry.
I enjoyed the book and wonder if the author has written any others that are as good. I wish more authors wrote this kind of fiction – it is fun and while, yes, a little gory, well worth the effort. This is one I could see reading again. I give the book an A+.
