Okay, the book wasn't all bad. It was certainly entertaining in parts. Most of the characters, while stock, were given little quirks that made them kind of endearing. Take Hollywood superstar Nick Flack, for example. He kept referring back to his previous movies and was thrown of when people didn't know who he was. It was a pretty good gimmick, I think.
But Dillon's dad, whose name I can't remember, was given the identifier of only having one arm...and then late in the book was said to "rub his hands together." The best I could come up with was that his other hand was rubber banded to his wrist, so he could rub them together that way.
My biggest gripe with this book was the confusing layout of the complex. I felt like I needed a map to know where everything was, but instead, I was given partial descriptions of where things were and got confused.
Next was the use/lack of apostrophes. There were some that were there when they weren't needed and a LOT that weren't there when they should have been.
Repetition and bad grammar. Everywhere. Every time a shark came by, it read just like the last time a shark of that species came by.
The book is a workable story, but definitely...DEFINITELY needed more editing and rewrites. And a map.
The writing does have some faults, particularly it needs a bit of editing primarily with typos which were probably caused by a spell check replacing the correct word with a correctly spelt but wrong word. Cairns is always referred to without the s as Cairn for some reason. Again if this was intentional an explanation as to why the city (it's not a small town as referred to on these pages) chose to change its name. While that's being explained, also maybe why the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park has shrunk on these pages, possibly linked why the artificial intelligence is being added to the sharks? At the moment it stretches almost to Papua New Guinea so this Shark Park being near Cairns yet on the border of the Marine Park doesn't make any sense. This is actually the type of thing that would be allowed to built inside the marine park, as hotels and similar attractions already exist, especially as ecotourism and educating the public on conservation are strongly encouraged in the state of Queensland. There's an occasion where a female hammer head is giving birth and the word his is used in reference to her. Besides the wanting to kill all humans element we've also got stuff like hammerheads using their heads like hammers, but I found this sort of over the top ridiculous thing just reinforces the cheesy animal attack genre feeling as I turned the pages making me want to read it even more. I really couldn't put this one down, it was a very fun read. The characters both shark and human although animal attack genre clichéd, I found interesting and pleasure to follow on the pages. I really could see this being turned into a movie.
Once the story is over if you continue on flipping the Kindle pages the author explains how to get automatic updates on your Kindle so if she updates this we will get updated versions. So if an editor fixes the spell check typos, we'll get those updated pages. She also mentions sequels and short stories related to this book. I for one look forward to reading those. Easily a five star story for the sheer fact I didn't want to stop reading and would recommend it to anyone who likes the cheesy animal attack humans genre. If Amazon let me put 4 and a half stars that would be my overall rating due to the typos and unexplained differences to reality with Cairns, North Queensland and the sharks.
The very idea is probably impossible, but maybe not. They’ve built islands to make huge, fancy hotel resorts. Why not a shark park? So just let yourself go with it.
So they build the theme park, stock it with every kind of shark, and some other creatures. Then a category 5 hurricane blows it all to kingdom come.
As the island sinks, the sharks come out to play and things get very bloody very fast. Lots of people die and those lucky enough to still be alive have to brave the shark infested waters to escape the same fate.
One young boy is leading a group of survivors to safety, but where is safe on a sinking island?
There is tons of action and some cool robots. Not sure why the robots are in this story but they are put to good use. The story is fast and furious and there are plenty of colorful characters, including some of the critters in the park.
I live on the Gulf Coast and have been deep sea fishing. I’ve seen some of the monsters that rule the depths and even though the odds of being eaten by a shark are in my favor, I no longer swim in the ocean. I just don’t tempt fate. And after reading this book, I don’t think I’d visit the park either.
This series is addictive and bloody fun. Whether you love them or fear them, the sharks rule.
I bought this by itself, but I’d recommend you buy the collection to get the short prequels and sequels that come between each new novel in the series. You also get each new book free as the author updates the collection!
