Entertaining. A fun sort of summer book, that had less to do with the ocean and the giant, man-eating, albino manta ray than I had hoped. It was mostly about gold - an African-slave-ship-gold-rush-sort of treasure hunt. The most shocking part of it was the rather graphic sex scene that was so obviously written by a man. It was rather laughably male... Still, overall, the book was ridiculous, but engrossing. I suppose I would keep an eye out for the sequel (but only in paperback!).
This book was amazing. I read it in just a few hours because I couldnt put it down! A real page turner with a great twist ending!
didn't get very far in this, too much description when it starts out that way and it continues page after page after page along with words you can't pronounce and don't have a clue what they mean--doesn't make for a good start to a book. the story isn't about an ocean 'monster' like you might think it is about a treasure hunt and I didn't find that interesting.
For those who love the swashbucklong day, the thrills and chills of a spooky book...a mixture of Chrichton and Jules Verne....this book is right up your alley.
This was a good book, and no sex, which I was tired of...
