I believe the writer was trying to keep suspense and did this by not giving any extra info and by putting in a few false alarms to keep you on your toes. The writer is also very descriptive which adds greats atmosphere and further suspense. I think the writer has a good imagination to be able to write in such a way. Another skill the author has is, he knows when and when not to be descriptive, that helps because a whole page description on something that has no relevance at all is not necessary

Ian is shy and doesn’t seem very confident in the book; Ian explains it’s probably because of his dad who’s always putting him down because he can’t do something right. There isn’t mush about his interest in the book because the author keeps to the story line most of the time. Ian is afraid that he isn’t to his father’s expectations and that his father hates him. His experiences throughout the book make him a stronger person and I think he’s better for it. Reene also helps shape Ian into a better person. She is responsible, outspoken and strong-willed, Ian picks ups picks up a bit of it. Ian comes out to have a stronger mind, isn’t as reliant on others and isn’t afraid to voice his opinions.

To me the ending wasn’t much of a surprise because they were on a boat with an unknown monster, they defeat the monster and are rescued which wasn’t much of an ending. This of course doesn’t mean the book is boring, just predictable. There are also many little things that happen along the way to keep this book interesting enough to keep reading.

Fifth Entry – Suggestion Number 10 – Book Finished
There wasn’t a clear message throughout the book because the author seemed to keep to the story line a lot, but if there was one I would say it was to never give up no matter how bad things gets. I got this from all the hardships and trials Ian and Reene had to endure on the ship like surviving the cyclone and trying to stay alive with the thing aboard ship. When Ian and Reene were split up Ian thought he was all-alone, there’s something after him and feared the worst for Reene, then his flashlight goes dead. Another good message from the author would be to overcome your fears.
