It's very nice to reminisce some of my favorite books back in Elementary. This is a sequel to the story of the trouble-maker kids, Billy Deep and his sister, Sheena. In this story, they are in for more underwater adventures in the Caribbean when they are back with their uncle for another summer vacation.

They meet deeper trouble again starting with the evil scientist -Dr. Ritter (who planned to turn the Deep siblings into a fish), two giant-sized goldfish, and a man-eating jellyfish.

Μία από τις πιο κακές στιγμές των "Ανατριχίλων" στον κόσμο των sequels. Το βιβλίο αγνοεί εντελώς την ιστορία με την οποία μας σύστησε τους ήρωες και τις περιπέτειές τους, είναι ελάχιστα διασκεδαστικό, καθόλου τρομακτικό, ενώ περιέχει ένα σωρό πληροφορίες και στοιχεία που στην πραγματικότητα δεν βγάζουν κανένα απολύτως νόημα. Και είναι η στιγμή εκείνη που χαίρεσαι που μια σειρά, έστω και παιδική, φτάνει στο τέλος της...

Easily a contender for the best-worst Goosebumps.

SEQUEL TIME! Sequel time is never a good time in Goosebumps land...

Billy, Sheena, and their scientist uncle (SO MANY SCIENTISTS IN THIS SERIES) are back on the water, and who the hell cares that they discovered mermaids last book. We're going to talk about PLANKTON. For serious. Well, at least until the kids start seeing GIANT fish swimming around. In fact, when Billy's goldfish explode in size, they almost sink the ship! This causes some really bad dudes to come by who have been experimenting o

Title: Deep Trouble II
Series: Goosebumps #58
Author: RL Stine
Overall Rating: 2 stars

Another okay sequel, another kind of disappointed Connie because this book could've been made borderline genius but instead it was tettering on the edge of being mediocre and being kind of rubbish. I liked the uncertainty of the ending and I liked the plot idea as a whole. But as usual, the problem was the execution.

This book was ok. It's about 2 sibling named Billy and Sheena Deep. Their uncle has this cool floating lab in the Caribbean. Thats where they were staying at for that summer. As they go swimming they encounter sea monsters that are really big. They keep on growing and growing and their fun just got cancelled.

I'm nearing the end of my Goosebumps read-through and it is rapidly becoming quite the rocky ride. I'm not certain just how many of the books were ghostwritten, a true Goosebumps aficianado I'm sure could tell you that, but the quality has definitely gone downhill. While some of the previous books included things such as - character development, suspense, and a decently linear plot with a cringe-worthy ending, this book had no such thing. It was action from the get-go, and little of the classic ...more

This book was OK. To be honest I had a few expectations but it failed to meet them.Kinda disappointed.

I think that Goosebumps Deep Trouble II is good because it telling how Bill and his sister Sheena had saw a fish that was big and coming for them that would kind saw the fear that they had when the fish was coming for in the ocean. Because the fish was not friendly to them, then Dr.D had been told that the fish was not friendly and later on in the book there is another character that would be in story that dose not like anyone to know what in the ocean so he when them to be kill because the main ...more

As the title suggests, "Deep Trouble II" is the sequel to "Deep Trouble." I really enjoy both of these books because the villains are humans instead of some monsters. However, I think I like the second one a bit better. Rather than mermaids, which aren't really scary, we get giants fish due to genetically enhanced sea weed.

Deep Trouble II: My Book Review
Book Title and Author: Deep trouble II, R.L Stine
Number of Stars (1 to 5): 5

Introduction: This book is entertaining and a little boring, the main idea of the book is that these fish are getting really big and it’s not normal for some fish. Billy Deep and his sister are on a boat with their uncle and they’re in the Caribbean. My argument about the book is that the detail about the fish is not fully imaginable and I think in this

Deep Trouble, by RL Stine, is a fictional Horror book which was one of many of a collection of books called Goosebumps novels. I decided to read this because it as a sort of nostalgia trip because I started reading Goosebumps novel when I was 7 where I read Deep Trouble, the prequel to this book. I also decided to read this because recently, the Goosebumps film came out.

The book features Dr Deep, Billy D & Sheena D who are there to visit their uncle, Dr D (Deep) while on Summer vacation.

The book "Goosebumps: Deep Trouble II" by R. L. Stine is a great book when it comes to the thriller side of things. RL Stine has a mystical way of writing which keeps you in suspense until the next chapter. This is a big reason why I started reading his books in the first place. I also personally like this book because it is not only a horror/ thriller type-of-book but also incorporates an aquatic marine-life setting into the book.

There were some parts in the first chapter that puzzled me a bit, especially when one holds it up against what happens in the third Goosebumps book that follows after this adventure ("Creep from the Deep", Goosebumps Horrorland #2). Since Billy is thirteen in "Deep Trouble II" and only twelve in "Creep from the Deep", does this mean that the latter volume took place earlier, most likely in the same summer as the original "Deep Trouble"? If so, then is "Deep Trouble II" (which is set during the ...more

This one is hard to rate. On the one hand, I have really strong memories of enjoying this one as a kid, mostly for the wild adventure that was not scary in the least. However, rereading it, the adventure aspect is let down by crappy writing and goofy moments not to mention the absurdity of the entire plot. Though I'll be fair and say that in the context of the series, the plot is not even that unreasonable. Overall: quick, tame adventure story with very few surprises and some sequences that will ...more

I didn't finish it because it was so predictable I couldn't stand reading all of the filler in between the 2nd and last chapter. Also, I've got a horrible cold, so I'm kinda down for the count. So if you see very little updates, that's why. But, heck, no one actually going to see this review. I've only written 526 characters, so f*** it. I've already got a billion problems with the beginning, but I don't care enough to write a review that even closely acknowledges its contents and justifies them ...more

This book is the sequel to R. L. Stine’s Deep Trouble, a book in his Goosebumps series. In it, we follow the story of Billy Deep and his sister Sheena as they go to spend the summer with their uncle, a noted marine biologist who lives on a research boat.

But something strange is going on – the fish in the area are too large, and Dr. Deep is trying to find out why. But there’s a surprise in store – he ends up finding an adversary in the form of another scientist, and all sorts of shenanigans start

This book was about three people were in the middle of the ocean because of a scientist named Dr.D who was doing research in the ocean but along the way they encounter giant sea creatures. But the sea creatures were mutated due to a plankton that was genetically enhanced by a guy named Dr.Ritter. The main characters in the book were Billy, Sheena, And Dr.D. I thought that this book was great because of the action. I would recommend this book to people who like action.

Another adventure of Billy and Sheena Deep on their uncle floating lab.

It is such a nice day. The weather is nice. Everything is normal. It’s a perfect opportunity for great swimmers to swim and snorkel in many great spots around. However, apparently everything is not normal deep below the surface of the water. And any good swimmers in the world will face a deep trouble to enjoy the sea today.

As a kid, when I read the first "Deep Trouble," I was in NO WAY hoping for a sequel. Guess what R. L. Stine gave us in response to our never-asked non-requests? Yup. Granted, it's slightly better than the first, but only in the way a kick in the leg is better than a kick in the groin. More of the same clichés- small things turned big equals scary, person turned into animal equals scary. You know what really equals scary, Bob? Pushing yourself through these as an adult. Thrills and chills.

I adore spooky tales from the deep and Deep Trouble II didn't disappoint!

Perfect for kids that have a low attention span, this book goes all over the place and is great for keeping their reading attention engaged.

I wish there had been more descriptions about the creatures that caused all the trouble, but when reading juvenile fiction you can't have everything.

R. L. Stine has done it again for providing a great resource for helping kids read and build a love for books!

This was one of my first Goosebumps books i have ever read by R.L. Stine. I was expecting way better quality of the book and a better read than i had. The book itself was interesting until i was reaching the end, i could tell the whole story just by inferring what is going to happen. Since I'm a higher level book reader, this was a boring book that should have stayed in the library. When i found out how much the author was trying to fantasize stuff, it was a great putdown for my read.

Currently rereading my original Goosebumps collection

An unnecessary sequel to Deep Trouble, this one just seems rushed and frankly comical. Involving giant sea creatures and a mad scientist this one isn't particularly scary but it will make a cute, mindless read for youngsters.

Read from January 3, 2016 - January 3, 2016

I don't know what it is about Deep Trouble and Deep Trouble II but they are just so good.
I think a lot of it has to do with the villains in the story, the monsters, aren't your typical monster, its people, its the environment and I love it.
This book has a lot of action and I read it in 45 minutes.
Chissà come mai, da piccoli, eravamo così attratti da questo tipo di spaventi..
Ripensandoci adesso mi viene da sorridere: granchi giganti, pesci palla enormi, pozioni che permettono di mutare, etc...
La fiera della tamarria al servizio del solito goosebumps che su legge velocemente, e lo rimuovi velocemente.
Non riesco ad essere severo verso certi libri :)

Goosebumps. This is the series that kept me reading through my childhood. More than any other series, Goosebumps kept me interested in reading, and R.L. Stein is a wonderful children's writer. I applaud his efforts, and can't express enough my gratitude for the series.

Actual rating: 2.5 stars. I really wanted to give this book 3 stars but the errors in the science drove me up the wall and the ending was just so bad. It's an interesting story but it's just handled badly.
