    " I'm reaching way back with this one but this was a book that I could not put down as a kid and being fascinated by cryptozoology I still look back on it fondly. I read it when I was in the fifth grade and devoured every page. It's geared towards kids but it doesn't talk down to them and trusts that they can handle something more complex than a monster on the loose story. It still has some good scares and some intense moments, but at the same time it deals with ethics and handles the "monsters" in a realistic, mature way-showing them to be animals that are just protecting their territory and offspring. Yes, the villain of the story is a little too simplistic-kind of what you might call a Captain Planet villain-but there's enough going on with the other characters and the story to compensate for that. This was always a childhood favorite and I will always be glad that I read it all those years ago. "

    " This has become one of my favorite books. I am very picky when I say that. Although I have read and like thousands of books, very few make it onto my favorites list. This book brought the elements of mystery, horror, and adventure rolled into one package of awesomeness. I highly suggest it to anyone trying to find a quick read to occupy a few hours of the day with. "

    " This book was so bad , I couldn't even get past the second page! I found this in the horor section . what it should be put under is the terrible section! "

    " Loch is a very engaging children's horror story, which is ironic considering you wouldn't want to scare your children before bed. But it's old school horror in that it doesn't feel it necessary to flash blood and dead bodies and murder to the reader as our tvs seem to believe is necessary these days. From a literary standpoint, this is a simple book to read considering it was made for children, but sometimes, it's more important for the reader to not need to be accompanied by a dictionary to read a book than it is for the writer to have a false sense of intelligence. The story was captivating, allowing the readers mind to expand and wonder of the truth just as the main character diving deeper into the mystery of the monster. A recommended read for anyone who doesn't want to forget what writing originally was, and still is all about. "

    " They sould make this book turned a movie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 11/15/2013

    " Suprisingly, this book was actually pretty decent. The plot moved along pretty quickly, which I thought helped the book to steer clear of the boring waste of paper that it could have easily become. The one thing I really enjoyed about this book was the development of the characters. It's not very long, and I was suprised how quickly the characters all clicked to one another. However, I found the ending to be weak and unsatisfying, although it does takes an exceptional ending to really impress me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick | 11/10/2013

    " This book got really boring after about a quarter way in and just kept reading without much care. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betty | 10/30/2013

    " I put this book down and thought, "they must make this into a movie starring leonardo dicaprio." well now, dicaprio is too old so they can use shia labeouf or zac efron. I just loved this book as a young girl. just loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Mcneil | 10/24/2013

    " This was on my son's reading list so I bought it for him so he could have a book on his new ipad. He absolutely loved it, and he's not a huge reader, but he couldn't put it down. So glad I got it for him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kalee | 10/19/2013

    " This book was really awesome, but I recommend it to those with strong stomach. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Braxton F | 10/17/2013

    " I'm so facinated by this book. the detail on the landscape and monsters. The land scape is moutiness and rivers run in and out of caves. Water falls are every where falling every where from the rain that collects in little pools. that might have monsters in them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy McC. Mc.C | 9/25/2013

    " Youth fiction-fantasy. My least favorite of all of Zindel's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clifton johnson | 9/23/2013

    " Loch Ness Monster meets Free Willy as kids try to save a baby plesiosaur. There is also lots of fun gore. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Megan | 9/6/2013

    " Not a very good book, at least to me. Not very well written, and the overall writing in the book was poor. The plot also wasn't as good as it could have been. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yasmin | 8/24/2013

    " This is a little bit of a guilty pleasure for me... But who can resist a story about a couple of kids and some gigantic prehistoric monsters? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bekka | 1/20/2013

    " It was a gut wrenching horrific book that I only recommend to people who can actually stomach this kind of reading. If you want to read these very detailed flesh tearing moments, then by all means read it. Enter if you dare, but i warned you! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenee | 1/19/2013

    " A book for preteens, loved it when I was younger. Deffinitly alittle edgy expecially for the audiance it's made for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan Stelter | 12/1/2012

    " Since I really enjoy books with lots of adventure, I did like this book and feel comfortable recommending it especially to boys. Just like Raptor a prehistoric animal is involved. The ending shows compassion for all living things! "

    " Read for school with the boys. A fun twist on the Loch Ness Monter mystery. Also tied in family issues and teen angst. A fun little read. "
