    Good Service. This was a present and I read it as a child so I know its good.

    I read the second McGowan installment with more mixed feelings. (Do feel free to check out my first review of the first 'new Willard Price' novel Leopard Adventure). As a story it was an enjoyable read and on a near par with the first book. However, I have to say that Mr McGowan continues to make free with some very much loved Willard Price characters. Not only are we to swallow a later life feud which splits brothers Hal and Roger in the first book and Hal also continues to be a gruff character in this second installment, we are now asked to cheerfully accept the death of Omo in this second book. I would normlly say... beware plot spoiler... in advising of the demise of a much loved character, but as Omo is swept aside in one short butchered sentence, I think old readers may forgive (and understand why)this lack of forewarning...I think these books, whilst very much enjoyable in their own right, need to also bear in mind they have the blessing of the Price estate. I have to say some of the old characters continue to be treated in a 'gung ho' manner, and for me quite thoughtless fashion, for the sake of a 'new' story. I cannot consider these books as an extension of Williard Price's wonderful stories, as in truth they bear little resemblence whatsoever to the original cast. Whilst accepting the stories are more than readable, I must ask did the books need updating so much that the original characters had to be almost swept aside? I do wonder what Willard Price would have made of these books and the continued assasination of his prime characters?I would accept that the animal facts flow through the book, perhaps at times without the crafted skills of Price's teaching. To call this book 'Shark Adventure' was also perhaps a little misleading as the Shark encounters (whilst good) sum up two brief meetings in the whole book. A more accurate title would have been Turtle Adventure as the whole story is largely based on trying to save endangered turtles, although this would have of course have lacked the title bite!Amazon and Fraser remain (largely) good characters and the new villain of Chung is also a nice edition. Almost a new Kaggs!Would I buy the third installment? Yes, but I am now sadly resigned to accepting they bear little resemblence to Willard Price's orignial characters, so thankfully I will have to consider them to be quite seperate stories. The animal and planet conservation do remain good themes of the books. But, was it really so necessary to write out and date Hal and Roger so badly? I cannot help but feel a real oportunity here to embrace the old characters and update the books has been lost, but as seperate stories in their own right they remain quite good reading.One thing I will promise the old readers is that I will continue to honestly review the series as it unfolds! A little more senisitivity to Willard Price's work please(!) If not a little too late!!?

    It's a great read especially on a rainy day. It has a clear message about being green and preserving our nature without boring you. The plot is clever and full full of nail biting moments and it's all topped off with the extra bonus of a fact file about sharks and leatherback turtles (the two types of animals that feature in this book). So when you think geography and zoology are boring think again! This is both and enticing and educational book. The plot is full of twists and turns and the characters each have a signature theme, the main Characters are Amazon and Frazer two cousins who set off on yet another heroic mission across the world,to save the endangered leatherback turtles in the name of T.R.A.C.K.S a society of conversationalists who's founders are the fathers of Amazon and Frazer but little did they know that they'd be fighting of tiger sharks, man of war stingers,tropical typhoons and a whole bunch of baddies on top of that there's still the case of Amazon's parents who've gone missing in a supposed plane crash. But these two kids aren't gonna give up so easily.I definitely would recommend this book for ages 9+ and fans of Bear Grylls, Steve Backshall and nature lovers. Get it as soon as you can,you won't regret it!!

    I remember the original Willard Price books and loved them, Anthony McGowan has certainly bought the new series up to date and into present day. Shark Adventure is a great addition to the new series and kept me on edge throughout the book.
