FloodWorld Reader Reviews


Lily O’Dwyer

I really, really enjoyed this book. The writing was really descriptive and I felt like I was right there with them through the whole adventure!

I have not read any of Tom Huddlestone's books before but I really liked the way he writes. The characters were great and lots of fun with lots of attitude. The pictures he created in my head were really vivid. I could see everything like it was a movie! I liked the pirates and I really liked the strong girl characters. This is an awesome book and I would tell anyone to read it.

If you like Pirates and Battles this book is perfect for you. It gets more exciting as it goes along, so keep reading to find out who ends up with control of the City and Shanties...

This book is set in the future. The seas have risen and technology is rare. Kara and Joe are trying to protect the City and the Shanties from the ruthless Mariner Pirates. There are lots of battles between the Mariners and either MetCo (the City) or the Shore Boys (the Shanties). The story becomes more exciting when the main characters have to escape capture. You want to know what happens next. Who is Nate and will he help the Pirates or Kara and Jo? This book would be great for children aged 8+ who like reading about battles and Pirates.

Imagine living underwater and being chased by pirates in submarines!! Flood World is a brilliant adventure tale of good versus evil and it will have you struggling to put it down. Possibly the best book I have read this year. I LOVE it!

The Flood World is a totally unique and riveting fantasy adventure book. I have read a variety of books and love action and adventure but I have never read a book quite like this.
Flood World is a classic tale of good versus evil set in an amazing underwater world.
I can't wait for the next book in the series.
I recommend this book for anyone who loves action, thrills, adventure and page-turning drama.

Loved the storyline, found it hard to put the book down as it was such a page turner. Joe is my favourite character.

I really enjoyed this book, I thought it was a great story. It's a very good book and unputdownable. My favourite character is Joe because although he is a lot younger than everyone else he's quite resourceful. I thought that the storyline was interesting and the mariners idea that they rescue endangered species is a brilliant one.

This book is about the two main characters, Joe and Kara, who find a map and get caught up in an adventure with people who aren't afraid to kill for it. They live in a future London that is mostly underwater and the houses are on stilts.
I would definitely recommend this book especially to people who enjoy action, adventure and mystery.
