Jean is on her way to Hawaii for a week of fun but the vacation gets off to a gruesome start. The boy beside her on the plane chokes and dies. Jean tries to push the incident out of her mind when she arrives on the island but it's impossible. Part of the reason is because Mike keeps coming back to her in dreams; horrible dreams filled with blood.

Two of Jean's friends are a

O Christoper Pike, how my 12-year old self loved thee.
Paul Baribeau
This was my first Christopher Pike book. Will probably be my last. Thought it would be fun and easy to read. In truth, this book was a real drag. I did not read it for nostalgic reasons or ironic reasons. Was just interested in reading some popular young adult fiction. The main problem was the repetition of certain events. If you cut out the parts that are repeated over and over again the book would be very short. The book contains about 7 full pages of text about a skull with a hole in it. Ever ...more

"Bury Me Deep" is the first Christopher Pike book I've ever read when I was 12 years old. It then started the Pike-reading frenzy of my early teens.

It begins with Jean Fiscal on her way to Hawaii for spring vacation. She's going to meet her two friends in Maui, who have already started their vacation a couple days earlier. Jean is expecting to have a great time there, but she doesn't even leave the airplane before her vacation is changed for the worse. The young man, Mike Clyde, who was sitting

Christopher Pike, I loved you when I was a pre-teen... and now I'm not sure why. The plot was decent but nothing spectacular but it was the characters who turned me off the most to this book. I'm starting to suspect that Pike just doesn't know how to write females because the first thirty pages of any of his novels seem to contain self centered monologues from the female character about how ugly they are and how they want a guy to notice them but they won't but hey, don't worry about it because ...more

t's that time of year when all I want to read is spooky books that give me the shivers, so who better than the master of teen murder himself, Christopher Pike?? Bury Me Deep was the first book I picked up from my stack and it was just kind of an okay read. Not as great as Master of Murder (but what is?) or Die Softly (which I realized I haven't reread yet!), but not as horrible as Monster. It pains me to write this, mostly because I skinned my elbow and can't lean on the desk, but main character ...more

another Pike that I really liked as a pre-teen. I'm still slightly terrified to go scuba diving because of this book.
Kathy
Pretty standard Pike supernatural thriller. Initially the abrupt sentences and flittering narrative annoyed me until I realised that was more about the personality of the protagonist, and then it seemed more natural. There was nothing special or unique about this story, but it was gripping enough for me to read it in only a couple of sittings and it lacked major plot holes which so many stories of this genre don't seem to care about. What I loved the most though was the scuba world. As scuba div ...more

Erin (*is in a reviewing slump*)
Christopher Pike has an amazing endowment for winding together complex, deep plots, especially for young adult tales. Bury Me Deep isn’t the most composite of the lot, but it still harps an intriguing tale that’s a mystery from day one. Jean gets on a plane headed for Hawaii , to meet two other teen girl friends for a week of paradise. Next to her seat is a boy, Mike, who never reaches his destination. Instead, he starts to mysteriously suffocate, and then falls away dead, in front of Jean’s ho ...more

A classic Pike story. Jean is going to Hawaii with her friends, and she's a typical Pike heroine - brown hair, lush bod, unaware of exactly how sexy she is. She's vacationing with her friends Mandy and Michelle - both of whom have met guys who scuba dive off the islands.

On the way to Hawaii, Jean sits next to a young man named Mike Clyde, who has won a trip to tropical paradise through a contest. He's never seen the sea before, and his innocence wins Jean over. Unfortunately, midway through the

This book is (As far as I know) one of Christopher Pike's most popular books. Now, after reading I can understand why. Jean is diffrent than his other protaginists. She was smart. Not "in-the-moment" smart, but just smart. Christopher Pike really is the master at horror. I loved the epilouge to this book. It was so touching and lovely. I just don't understand why she had such a hard time figuring out whodunit. But to give her credit, it was not easy to figure out. I loved the idea for this book. ...more

This was the very first Pike book I ever read when I was 14. Still own it 14 years later. It's one of my favorites, and the one that started my love of Pikes other books.
It has everything you could want in a book, good characters, great story line, suspense, and a good ending.
Sophie
This was the first Christopher Pike book that I read. I picked it up when I was about nine years old, on vacation, while the adults were doing something in the other room. I needed something to read, and this was on the bookshelf.

For some reason, after that, I became a huge Christopher Pike fan. I have no idea why, because this book scared the daylights out of me, especially the parts about rotting corpses and people getting the Bends. I devoured all of his other stuff, reading the ones I liked

I read all of Mr. Pikes books when I was younger and enjoyed them immensley. That being said revisiting them has been a little sad. The ideas are interesting but the characters are very shallow especially the females. Even though most the stories are from a female pov they are not female power driven characters. This is does not deviate from that.
Kris Lugosi
Once again, PIKE's style keeps winning me over. Little tired of the beach babe scene but what are ya gonna do, the man knows LA apparently, review to come it'll be short and sweet just like my teenage years :P
Tina Marie Christensen
I loved Christopher Pike growing up, one of my favorite things was a trip to a bookstore to pick out a new Christopher Pike book.
Kalloosit Dunn
One of my first books I've read as a teen, and it left me wanting more reading. It was that great!
Brooke
Good book! Had plenty of the twists and turns Christopher Pike always delivers.
Rory
I stumbled across this while at a used bookstore and since it was the only Pike they had i could not resist. The story is a simple mystery like his early work but is also the begining of his obsession with the occult and paranormal which makes this a strong mix... The only thing I didn't like was the lack of development of the secondary characters--I didnt care about anyone besides the lead and that's sad because Pike has created so many characters I loved

To tell you I didn't like this book that much. It didn;t scare me at all and it just it was different.

When a girl goes on a trip to hawii she thinks it will be fun and games. She meets up with her friends there. They meet to islanders who they end up becoming more than friends with. But when one of her friends pluges to her death off of their hotel balcony and she has weird dreams that seem to be to real this could turn into a real nightmare for her.
Amanda Hendsbee
This is pretty standard teen scream "horror," but that's what makes it fun. I really enjoyed Christopher Pike's books when I was a kid and it's nice to revisit them once in a while. I didn't remember this one so I'm not sure if I read it when I was younger or not, though it's not really a big standout among his books. It's worth reading if you are or were a die-hard fan, but it's probably not Pike's best work.
Kate
Was this the one where they go scuba diving, and someone dies? Scuba diving is one thing I'm afraid to do, underneath all that water is so claustrophobic. Anyway, I'm not sure if this is the same book, since the cover art is pretty non-indicative. I don't even need to see the closeup--I laugh just remembering how the tombstone's inscription says, "Mike." As if that really identifies someone's grave!
Jessica
This was one of my favorite authors when I was younger. Rereading it as an adult, I'm not as impressed with the writing, even keeping in mind that it is a youth book. However, the storyline is pretty good. I probably won't be reading it again, but I would recommend it for young fans of horror and thrillers not yet old enough for the more mature authors.
Jennifer
i rated this book so high because when i was a kid i used to love love love christopher pike. i havent read any of his books in probably 15 yrs or more so i cant say whether this is a good book or not, at the time i read it i thought it was. would i recommend this to anyone?? no it wouldnt be fair to. maybe someday ill re read a few and see

Solid effort by Christopher Pike, who was one of my faves in my younger years. A girl on a trip to Hawaii has her trip start terribly when the boy next to her on the plane chokes and dies. But is he haunting her thereafter? Trying to show her who killed him? And is she with the murderer right now, and in line to be the next victim?

Recommends it for: Fear street lovers
One of my first attempts with Christopher Pike books. The truth is I was looking for a fear street substitute and this delivers the same. Somewhere along the lines I forgot that I was not reading a fear street. But as all books of this genre the ending was predictable and dull. Should have started with a more interesting book.
Sami Fulciniti
decent book. Not the best I've read from Pike though
