    1. When P.C. McPhee goes to Australia to spend time with his uncle and help him run his tourist centered diving business he never expects to become involved in a life or death mystery. Then his uncle is killed by a sea monster and he must help an Aboriginal girl find buried treasure and save her tribe while avoiding evil scientists and the horrifying sea creature. A fun read, even if it is a little darker than some of Zindel's works. Boys and girls alike with enjoy reading about P.C Maruul, and Wal [...]

    2. I read this book because one of my struggling readers (I teach 6th grade) is reading it. He asked me to read it, too, so we could talk about it. I definitely like the cover of his book (a old edition from the school library) better than the newer one I bought. His shows the sea creature, mine shows a shark. Why? The reader learns in the first chapter what the creature looks like. There is no shark. I hate misleading covers. As for the content, it is a perfect book for a sixth grade boy who strug [...]

    3. I read this book when I was in middle school. And the book has still stuck with me today several years later. For the longest time I could not remember the title of the book but I was talking to my friend about the book and she had read it around the same time I did and she remembered the title. I very seldom want to read a book again but I would love to get my hands on the book again and read it the second time. It is the perfect example of what a page turner should be. I loved the book and I s [...]

    4. The Reef of Death is a action adventure book that is full of brutal deaths and plenty of fish. The book takes place in Australia and the main character PC is invited from America to Australia by his uncle Cliff to search for mysterious treasure. They encounter a giant man eating fish that is controlled by a crazy German geologist who is also in search for the treasure. The book introduces Maruul a native to Australia who will help PC find the treasure. I think the Reef of Death is a good action [...]

    5. I thought this book was really action packed and intense. It is a good book to read if you are looking to read something adventurous and exciting. The only downside to this book is that it is really short and you might not want to read it if you have a report to do about a book which has to be a certain length or more. I recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, mystery, or just a lot of suspense.

    6. Looking at the cover, you'd expect this to be the dumbest book out there and, I mean, you're not exactly wrong. So Paul Zindel wrote silly horror thrillers for kids, but at least it convinced a lot of them to read more.I remember enjoying this book, but it wasn't the best in the series. I'd say that this entire genre lives only in the time it was written. I would be surprised to see a kid walking around and reading this today.

    7. I enjoyed reading this book, but if I went diving and seen the monster fish that lived there I would flip out. The fish was bigger than the sharks they have caught or seen in the area and hunted for fun and killed many people who was near the reef where it lived. Until a couple of diving tours tried to get rid of the fish but they didn't succeed and ended up putting their selves in harms way.

    8. I enjoyed this book there was more mystery than I had first expected and a very good story line. I didn't think that they would live to ever find the treasure. I also did not expect many of the creatures in this book to be the way they are.

    9. Intense! I couldn't put it down. Zindel is definitely one of the "greats" in his creation of characters and stories that could really happen! Unfortunatly, I don't think I will EVER scuba dive after having read this book.

    10. This was a gruesome book full of twists and turns. I recommend this book to those who don't have a weak stomach.

    11. this book is very interesting especially for teenagers. its about a group of teenagers who explore the Australian seas for treasure which they have only heard about and end up struggling to survive.
