Reviews for Shark Beneath the Reef (2 vol.)
RatingComments
5Shark Beneath the Reef is an excellent book about a Mexican boy who lives near the Sea of Cortez. His family catches and sells sharks for a living. He heard about an enormous shark who lives under the coral shelf. He dreams of catching the shark and holding it above his head in the plaza as a hero. He is also making up his mind on whether he is going to school or becoming a shark fisherman. Meanwhile, his family is suffering, because the sharks have gone out of the area and they have very little to sell. The government officials also want to begin taxing the fishermen, because they are making the beach a tourist site. The family camp is on that beach, so they try to avoid the the officials as much as they can. I liked this book because of the plot. It had a lot of action sometimes and drama at other times. The moral was astounding. I am still amazed at how the story ended. I thought it would be a simple decision, but it turned out to be completely different. Absolutely excellent literature. You have got to read it!
