3 Sentence Review: The Girl Beneath the Sea

  1. The Girl Beneath the Sea is an action/thriller, not one of the supernatural/sci-fi stories that I usually read, and it took me a while to stop waiting for something mystical to happen.
  2. This Sloan McPherson chick can hold her breath for a reaaaaaaaaally ridiculously long time and even though the character relays stories of competing with her brothers in underwater breath-holding contests, lists off the world records for oxygenated and non-oxygenated breath-holding, and also repeatedly describes her intense physical discomfort, I just wasn’t buying the timeline of her underwater antics and how much she was able to physically accomplish while wishing she had a tank in her pocket.
  3. Overall, it was a fun adventure with a great supporting cast and I look forward to reading more in the series.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
