I found this book at the end of another ebook. I love when they give you just enough of a story to go and buy it- this one cost me $2.99.
Legend has long spoken of the prehistoric monsters that silently glide through the waters surrounding Long Island in the Bahamas. Locals know that some areas are better left unexplored - Dean's Blue Hole being one of them.
Blue holes are found throughout the world and the number is growing. These expansive underwater caves call to divers, but remain largely unexplored.
Cursed with a strange name and dying marriage, Tyde Gregory, plans a last ditch effort to save his relationship. Diving at Dean's Blue Hole on Long Island seems to be the only thing Tyde and his wife, Wendy, can agree upon. As hope turns to horror, Tyde realizes that there are things far worse than a broken marriage.
This blurb does nothing for the book. When I followed the animation of my iPad's digital page and found the first three chapters of H. E. Goodie's novel, I immediately hit Amazon.com and purchased RIP Tyde! I needed to read the rest, especially since I'd been seeking something different- having grown weary of zombies, vampires and werewolves. RIP Tyde: A Deep Sea Thriller was exactly what I was looking for, right... ?
It was. For a the briefest of moments, I was disappointed with the story. Not because it wasn't interesting but because there were many areas where the author was on a writing spree and left words out here and there. Or he added too many and the sentence caused me a mental hiccup, making it necessary to go back and reread the sentence. Was it a disruption: Yes, but did it damage the story? Not in the least. This story about 60% of the way in is like an all-out MONSTERFEST! I loved it- from the lusca to the swimming dinosaur, to monstrous crabs ripping people in half - what a fantastic read!
RIP Tyde's not excellent executed, but it's a good read. The story is fun and you can't be anything but entertained. There's another book this story refers back to that I'm going to pick up later, called Tidal Grave, but it didn't receive rave or even really good reviews. That's never stopped me before though, Ha Ha! (in my best Errol Flynn voice) On to the next book!📚
