Instead of being shocking or scary it is more of a fantasy story. I enjoyed it but was really hoping to be bothered with a little more underwater terror as the cover indicates. Sep 27, Manisha Malik rated it liked it. It was my first time to read goosebumps. The story revolves around an adventurous 12 years old boy William Deep Jr. Billy who along with his sister Sheena visited his Uncle Dr.
D on his boat Cassandra to spend their summer vacations. How some mysterious creatures come across Billy during his stay at Ilandra Island give pace to the story. Now A Marina Zoo wants Dr. Will It was my first time to read goosebumps. Will he find the mermaid?
Do mermaids even exist? Stine described Billy's imagination power beautifully. A beautiful book that would be loved by year old kids and those who want to start reading books. I was raised with John Carpenter's classic films and I barely remember how bad it was. The only certain thing that I remember, was me threwing it away at a recycle bin and stopped reading books out of school for a decade Just a boring "Jaws" for kids.
Yup, I was a kid and I hated Goosebumps because they were disgustingly stupid. I preferred Beast Wars back in those days. Much better character development. Aug 08, David Santos rated it it was amazing Shelves: goosebumps. Do not judge a book by its title either!
This book did not interest me at all judging by the cover. I think Hammerhead sharks are one of the ugliest creatures to ever walk I mean swim on the planet. However, the book was better than I had thought. Billy a curious boy loves the water and looks for adventure, but everytime he jumps in the water something goes after him. We don't really see much of the characters.
Somewhere in the book Sheena disappeared, not part of the story, she just wasn't written in for a couple of chapters. Anyways the entire story takes place on a boat. Which is a nice change to the first 18 books which all take place on dry land. Nice little book. Lots of suspense in this one. Heck I read it all in one day ad that's saying alot since I can't read cereal boxes without falling alseep. For a Goosebumps book, this was especially cute. Riddled with too many false scares where something grabs his leg in the water this kid, geez , it still remained level enough in pacing and didn't overindulge in melodrama as much as some of the others.
The twist of adding the possibility of mermaids was a good one. Stine even entered a little twist of a betrayal among their little group. For kids this is a fun adventure exploring different obstacles of the water, which is a mystery for any age. Mar 04, Poonam rated it it was ok Shelves: childrens , adventure. No surprises no major twists and turns. Jan 02, Highness Atharva rated it really liked it. This book really stands out from the Goosebumps series and would be probably one of my favorite. There is nothing horror or paranormal about this but its too thrilling, adventurous, mysterious and very cool.
The characters are new and exciting.
Deep Trouble (Goosebumps, #19) by R.L. Stine
I love both the brother and the sister and the caring, genuine and frank Dr. D What a weird name. I bet Stine must have done at least SOE research because I came along a lot of technical seafaring terms that I found interesting and I have highlig Amazing! I bet Stine must have done at least SOE research because I came along a lot of technical seafaring terms that I found interesting and I have highlighted them.
The adventure of discovering new monsters and fairytale legend in the sea is thrilling. I was not looking forward to the book but the first few pages just got me stuck to it and I easily finished it in an hour and a half. I like the beginning, the coral reef, discovering the mermaid, understanding about her, deal with the zoo and the kidnapping.

I'm not so sure that I like the thugs coming into the story and kidnapping the mermaid. That was a bit boring and also the ending was not so good. It could have been better. Still, the monsters and mermaid have been described exceptionally and feel almost real. The story is unique and thrilling and not at all obvious as its t is in most goosebumps books.
I like the characters and the setting of the sea and the dangers that our band faces.

This is probably one of the best works of R. L Stine. Not horrifying KR scare but a memorable masterpiece from the Goosebumps Series. D's assistant, a muscular graduate student named Alexander DuBrow, serves up lunch to the children: chicken salad sandwiches. Only his cooking's terrible, so Dr. D offers to grill some fish for dinner. Billy overhears a private conversation between Dr. D and representatives for the Marina Zoo. The zoo crew wants Dr. The zoo offers Dr. D the princely sum of one million dollars. Billy is too excited to sleep, so he goes out early the next morning at AM to search for the mermaid.
Billy's night swimming is suddenly interrupted by a hammerhead shark that almost kills him. Fortunately, the mermaid comes and attacks the shark, saving Billy's life. D nets up both Billy and the mermaid and drags them onto the deck of the ship. Billy tries to argue that the mermaid saved his life. But the mermaid is put into a large glass tank on the deck until the zoo crew arrives. Billy is enjoying dreams of Sea People when his slumber is interrupted by the sound of crashes and a splash.
Above deck, he discovers the mermaid is in the process of being kidnapped! The men brutally toss Billy into the tank. Billy starts yelling for Alexander as Dr. D is knocked out on the floor and Sheena is offering no help against the four burly men. Finally, Alexander does show up only to side with the thugs.
The thugs toss Sheena and Dr.
D into the tank, lock it, and then throw it into the water. The top of the tank is meshed, so the three characters inside the tank fight to break the locks before the tank submerges completely underwater. As they struggle, the "kidnappers" and Alexander speed off with the mermaid in tow. Just when things look their worst, a myriad of mermaids appear and hoist the tank above the water level. D and the children break open the latches and escape to the dinghy.
As the other mermaids rescue her, the thugs attempt to set fire to Dr. D's dinghy. The mermaid is set free. Billy sneaks out by the coral again in hopes of catching the mermaid to say goodbye. When Billy is searching for the mermaid, he is attacked by the Sea Monster which he encountered in the beginning of the novel. I was able to do this going into the reread, and that state of mind helped me reconnect with my childhood, which was a super fun and very cool thing. His writing is straight and to-the-point yet never missing tension or mystery. I love that. It makes it super fun and made reading this book as an adult new and interesting.
I also really liked the plot of this story. It was interesting, fun, and chocked full of magic.
The last thing that I very much loved was the open ending. Tension and plot twists until the very last page. What more could you possibly want? So, do I recommend this? If you do, keep pushing forward. If not, leave it be and keep you reminiscent value in tact. Review originally published on my Wordpress blog Dreaming Through Literature.
Jan 08, Juan rated it really liked it. If you like adventures this is the book for you. This book is full of adventure. The setting of the story is on a caribbean island called "Ilandra. Billy is twelve and Sheena is ten years old. This is not surprising when one considers the fascination that these creatures have inspired since humans first became aware of them. The first reference to the shark is unknown, but an aboriginal drawing in Australia, more than 30, years old, shows a sharklike creature eating a man.
Pliny, Aristotle, and Herodotus wrote of sharks, and by the middle of the 16th century, shark had entered the English language. It will make a perfect adjunct to the exhibit, providing interested visitors with additional information not readily available elsewhere. For this inclusive and important book, Eilperin traveled around the world to find people who study, fish for, dive with, venerate, or have been attacked by sharks.
And Mahmood Shivji, of Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has begun analyzing naturally occurring geographic markers in the DNA of sharks caught and butchered by local fishermen to determine where they were caught, and thus which populations need protection.
Researchers have learned that virtually all shark populations are threatened, and none more than the oceanic whitetip, once the most numerous shark species in the Gulf of Mexico but now almost extinct there.
