HASH(0x965cfb88) out of 5 stars sams review of Dive 3 May 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback

by,Gordon Korman

My book is Dive. The book is about four teenagers that are chosen by a professor to dive and explore the sea. They aren't sure why they are there, but they know that they're looking for something big. The other divers are covering up something, and they don't want Star, Dante, Adriana, and Kaz to know.

I think this book makes people think about what could happen next. That is one of the reasons why I like it. Another reason is that you don't know what they're hiding until a little more than half of the story, and you want to find out so bad so you're on you're toes! The setting of the story is out on an island in the Atlantic Ocean.

( I didn't tell people what they're hiding, because they mignt want to read it, and find out for them selves.)

OMG! I just finished Korman's DIVE series. The books are amazing, and are great for readers around 10 to 17. This series is nerve-racking, and it is one of those books you can't put down. I can't wait to read the next series, EVEREST. It looks great. You will get your money's worth.

HASH(0x97083978) out of 5 stars Dive: The Discovery : Book One 30 Nov. 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Dive: The discovery is pretty much a adventure/mystery that takes place in the middle of the Carribean. It's about four kids who are set-up for a diving internship at an oceanography company called Poisedon. They're with the Ponce de Leon and it's crew, but they find out that they're four litte pawns in a treasure hunt. The crew of the Ponce de Leon has the kids mark random caves while they take metal scans for the missing gold.They obviously don't solve the problem in the first book,so they leave off with a cliffhanger. They also have a side story about an abandoned orphan who's at the mercy of Captain James Blade. They're on a ship called the Griffon, with more than 100 crew members. James Blade states that it's "perfectly legal" and "goverment certified," to steal treasure from Spain's ships and plunder their gold.The boat later wrecks, and all their gold sinks to the depths of the Carribean, and now the Ponce de Leon crew is after it.

HASH(0x965cfdd4) out of 5 stars Dive; book one : Discovery 18 May 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
The deep, mysterious ocean holds more value than to the human eye. Something more valuable than ever. What seemed like an opportunity of a lifetime has unraveled into something more, than the four kids can handle, and something so great has finally revealed itself.
Kaz, Dante, Adriana and Star, are invited to a summer internship to scuba dive. They know the organization doesn't seem to be what they look like, and they are going to prove it. Especially because the kids found sunken treasue and they are not the only ones who want it. The only thing stopping them is the bad guys and the sharks, especialy the eighteen foot tiger shark, Clarence. Each step that the kids take to getting the treasure the danger unfolds more.
I really enjoyed this book a lot because there was so much excitement and I had a lot of fun reading it, because it compares to teenagers all around and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a great book that stays in your imagination forever.
