Shark: Infested Waters by P.K. Hawkins #SharkWeek

shark infested waters

3 out of 5 Stars


For Simon, the trip was supposed to be a once in a lifetime gift: a journey to the Amazon River Basin, the land that he had dreamed about visiting since he was a child. His enthusiasm for the trip may be tempered by the poor conditions of the boat and their captain leading the tour, but most of the tourists think they can look the other way on it.

Except things go wrong quickly. After a horrific accident, Simon and the other tourists find themselves trapped on a tiny island in the middle of the river. It’s the rainy season, and the river is rising. The island is surrounded by hungry bull sharks that won’t let them swim away. And worst of all, the sharks might not be the only blood-thirsty killers among them.

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime. Instead, they’ll be lucky if they make it out with their lives at all.


Predators all stick together…..


My Thoughts

Hmm……… what can I write about? I KNOW! …SHARKS!!

Wait, no. That’s been done before. Too boring…. what can I do to spice it up?? What about sharks…. IN THE AMAZON!!!


scary monkey


No. Still too typical….What else??

……What if there was a SERIAL KILLER??

You know, it STILL doesn’t quite feel like it’s there yet….. What if there was torrential rains causing flooding that will bring them to impending doom??

This is apparently what went through the mind of this author in the planning stages of writing this novel. Ha ha! It was definitely entertaining with some unique decisions. I may have been a little generous in my rating due to the unique twists and turns in the book. There were quite a few errors (including the author using the wrong character name at one point in the book,

“As Cory put the raft in the center of the island for them both to work on”…..

No. Sorry sweety. It was SIMON who put the raft in the center of the island…. SIMON.

There were still some fun classic lines that kept me reading!

“My point being that we’re not going to starve,” Miriam said. “At least not right away. So we don’t have to worry about the horrible fate of becoming a soccer team.”



And, the classic,

“So, here’s the deal. If we survive this and get to dry land, we can have sex, if you still want. But after this is all over, if we get back to civilization, I don’t ever want to see you again.”

Well, at least I get sex out of the deal!!

Still an entertaining and unique read. Even if it did need some loose ends tied up!

  1. Sounds like a fun almost B-type film put into a book lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ That said, I love this kind of stuff: and the gifs you used were way too funny! 😊 Great review, and of course the drink was the icing on the erm shark…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      1. Oooo… I’ll have to look into that! πŸ˜‚ I also thought it was funny that one of the guys on the trip said he was there because his dad did want him to be around while he got remarried so they sent him on the first vacation that came up…. And it was to the AMAZON?? πŸ€” Pretty sure when I look up last minute trips of TripAdvisor or something it’s usually resort stays in Mexico, Cuba or Dominican… Don’t think I’ve seen “Amazon Jungle” on there. πŸ˜‚

      2. Haha…no….well, maybe the write wanted to start a new trent: last minute trips to the Amazon Jungle? πŸ€”πŸ€” can happen you know. Me though? Would much rather take a last minute trip to Canada! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


  2. You know a while back I read that same mistake with characters name. As I’m currently editing my own, i had this strange urge to delete and correct, and even considered hunting down the author so I could be a helpful reader, but alas, too much trouble to go through.

  3. I kept trying to read the synopsis but all I could think was THERES A CUTE CAT THERES A CUTE CAT THERES A CUTE CAT…. . So then I stared at the cute cat and went ‘aw’ several times. So the books pretty rubbish really. 🀣🀣
