Editorial Reviews

Review

After a generation out of print, the original Choose Your Own Adventure series is back. First published in 1979, the books let readers remix their own stories and face the consequences. A quarter-billion copies sold worldwide as kids raced to discover lost civilizations, navigate black holes, and go in search of...the Yeti. The original titles have returned in bookstores, revamped with 21st century references (cell phones!). Everyone enjoys playing the hero - especially if the hero has cool gadgets. --Wired Magazine

From the Publisher

Can You Find the Lost City of Atlantis?

You are a deep sea explorer on a mission to locate the lost city of Atlantis. According to legend, the city mysteriously disappeared many thousands of years ago. One day, as you are searching the ocean depths, you are trapped outside your underwater vessel. As your friends begin to haul you up, a giant squid heads directly toward you. Will you attack the squid with your spear gun, or will you signal your friends to pull you up at top speed?

If you decide to fight the squid, turn to page 17. If you decide to signal your friends to pull you up at top speed, risking your life, turn to page 18. But be careful! There are many dangers waiting for you in the ocean. You might get swallowed by a large fish. Or you could make it back to the boat and continue your expedition once again.

What happens next in the story? It all depends on the chooices you make. How does the story end? Only you can find out! And the best part is that you can keep reading and rereading until you've had not one but many incredibly daring experiences! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

R.A. Montgomery is an avid adventurer, first and foremost. Whether in the mountains, or on the sea, or in explorations of the mind, he has found adventure in every aspect of his life. Teaching school, working in the administration of a top university, hiking in the Himalayas, or working in the Peace Corps in Africa, Montgomery has taken making choices seriously. Montgomery says, "There is never a day in which you are not confronted with choice. Some seemingly small choices can determine the path of the rest of your life. CYOA gave me a vehicle for examining all the impacts of choice."

He was born in Greenwich, Connecticut in 1936. One of his first memories is sitting in his high chair and being frightened of Jell-O, which he thought was alive. He attended Hopkins Grammar School, the oldest private school in the country (founded in 1660), and Williston Academy. He got his college degree from Williams in 1958, and did graduate school at Yale and NYU.

Choose Your Own Adventure® books reflect his diverse interests and values. Montgomery states, "More than anything else, everyone should have the freedom to express themselves. Second to that, everyone should take risks and be willing to fail. Picking yourself up off the mat is the central business of life."

Today R.A. Montgomery lives in north central Vermont, where he is CEO of the small publishing house that has re-introduced the CYOA series. He travels frequently to Asia and Europe. Although his technical climbing days are kaput.

R.A. Montogmery could never equal the mastery of the "Choose Your Own Adventure" genre that Edward Packard did. Too often his books were preachy and overly arbitrary. This book may be his best effort, however, telling a fairly gripping series of adventures of your search for the lost city of Atlantis. The series was new and fresh at this point, and many of its best books were among its first nine.

I was 7 or 8 when I read this book, and it's still the only Choose Your Own Adventure Book I remember. It was well written and had a fresh feel to it, unlike the innumerable other books in the Choose Your Own Adventure series. The twists and turns were exicting (when I was that young), and the endings offered up were sufficiently pleasing. If someone has never read one of these books, and is interested, I'd have to say that this is the one to read.

I was in the bookstore tonight with my son and saw something wonderful - a whole display of Choose Your Own Adventure Books ! I loved these books when I was a kid, and my son (age 6) found a box of about 50 of them I was keeping downstairs and has been reading them over the last few months (with help, of course !) He loves to read, and loves the fact he gets to make choices in the book.

In any event, this particular book was one that I had in my original collection. I agree with the reviewer above - for the most part, Edward Packard's books were better ... but that's not to say RA Montgomery's aren't worth a purchase. If you havent tried these books, they're a great way to get kids ages 6 - 12 interested in reading.

Now if only they'd reprint the "Which Way" series as well. I loved Vampires, Spies and Alien Beings.

Format: Paperback
This book is about your quest to find the lost city of Atlantis. Along the way watch out for killer sharks, giant squids, underwater earthquakes and more. One wrong choice and you could end up with treasure beyond your dreams or sleeping with the fishes!!

The Choose Your Own Adventure series is excellent to motivate your children and students to read. The book lets you make your own choices and find out what happens to your character. Kind of like a video game in a book.

If you choose to lauch you adventure in reading, go to page 5.

If you choose to miss the biggest thing since Harry Potter with a Pokemon twist in collectable books, go to page 36.

Format: Paperback
Journey Under the Sea is one of the classic Choose Your Own Adventure books, and among the best ever written. Combining the elements of the unknown with that of high-adventure, the book involves the reader from the start and, depending on your "fate-altering" decisions, will end with a wallop. Find the Lost City of Atlantis, or explore the other mysterious locales of the ocean. But no matter where you turn, danger awaites you in this exciting multi-path quest of never-ending suprise and suspense.

I loved this series of books as a kid and "Journey Under the Sea" was not only the second book published in the series, but my second favorite as well following Edward Packard's highly imaginative The Cave of Time (Choose Your Own Adventure #1).

It's great to see that these books are still in print for children to read today. They are fun, interactive, entertaining and help to keep kids interested and motivated to read. My mom never had a problem with buying me these books because she knew that I enjoyed them and it kept me interested in reading and learning.

My only caveat, however, is that I highly recommend getting a used copy of the original Bantam Books edition. The reason is because the current edition published by Chooseco omits Paul Granger's wonderful cover art and his inspiring story illustrations have all been replaced with inferior artwork to the one from the 80's. The text has also been slightly revised and updated to make it more "contemporary" for kids today. It's definitely not quite the same as the book I remember reading from my childhood. Kid's will still enjoy the book, but adults looking for a nostalgic trip back to their childhood, you'll definitely want to get your hands on an original Bantam copy of this timeless childrens masterpiece.

Format: Paperback
I read this Choose Your Own Adventure book as a kid, and though I loved the concept, I thought the different endings weren't fleshed out enough to be interesting. I loved science fiction and fantasy primarily because you got to explore new situations where the givens of your own life weren't given at all, and it bothered me that so little worldbuilding and character development for the people you met was offered in the story. It made the story seem gimmicky, focused entirely on "you get to pick what happens!" even though nothing that happens is particularly convincing. Even as a little kid I was annoyed that the Atlanteans as depicted in this story seem to have been in a bubble of time and wear what ancient Greeks wore, as if they (unlike modern-day Greek people) couldn't have evolved into an equally modern but different culture. I was mostly disappointed by this one because I felt like the author was trying to trick me and rip me off just because I was a kid and probably wouldn't notice that it was poorly conceived. I could always tell when adult writers thought that way about kids.
