Three novels later, it all boils down to a rejected claim and "souvenir tourist junk". Discoveries that should have been made ages ago - seriously, could it be any more obvious? - are portrayed as ground-breaking news, and near-death experiences amount to nothing but a whale bone handle.

A fascinating piece of history to be sure, but worth diving hundreds of feet, risking decompression sickness and/or or death? Maybe I'm not as much of an archaeology or history fanatic as one of the interns in t

This was a great end to Gordon Korman's DIVE series. In the end, they got some gold. Hooray for them! This was an exellant book and I recommend it to all my friends.

How many Chekov's guns can we fit into one novel? Hmm.... A lot. This entire book is literally built upon foreshadowing and it's epic. Despite this, it doesn't carry the same amount of suspense as the second book in this series, yet still serves as a satisfying, and exciting, end to Korman's trilogy.

Maybe it's because I'm way over this book's target audience, but a lot of the plot twists seemed a little predictable. However, the introduction of sabotage and international law did become interesti
Dive: The Danger is the last part of Korman's Dive Trilogy, and it is a worthy finish to the trilogy. Like its predecessors, the Danger is a quick read and its tension and the dynamic character interactions are accompanied with well-written humor that does not break the tension.

This installment picks up after the downer ending to the second part- in an attempt to retrieve one piece of the treasure so they can register a claim with the International Maritime Commission. Unfortunately, the treasur

I didn't think that this book was as good as the first two books of this series. There was sort of to much going on at once.
In this book it starts off at Star in the emergency room and the Dr. tells her that her diving career is at an end. Plus in the second book captain Vanover dies and all the kids are sad and very depressed. English starts to open up to the kids and he starts to become the kids new captain Vanover. They were trying to see who messed with the submerine and at the end they rea
I always feel like Korman's trilogies are really one book in three parts. I enjoyed this series, although it didn't have the same level of threat involved as in his other works. Most of the danger came from the intrinsic risks of diving rather than outside problems. That's not necessarily bad, but it made for less hand-wringing.

I liked this and it was all tied up in the end, but it still felt vaguely unsatisfying. His ending is probably better than the alternative, yet it still felt like a cop

My favorite character in this series is Star. I was really sad that Captain Vanover died in the book before this.

Bleh...this book is HORRID! Questions like "Where are the characters?", "What are they doing?!" filled my min as I read this book. As I kept reading the book, though, my questions only grew in number, and I got even more confused than I already was! The book's plot wasn't an experience to remember. Rather, it was an experience I almost wanted to forget. If a boring, pointless, poorly written book is to your taste, read this book!

Dive has been a really good book and the ending tied it up great. It was so well thought out as an adventure book as I really couldn't predict how it would end, like would some someone die or will Star dive again. I have to give props to Gordon Korman for keeping the whole book series great and on my the edge of my seat. I try to predict whats going to happen but he keeps surprising me! I would love to read more book like Gordon Korman's. I would recommend this book series to anyone who likes su ...more

Great ending. Nice little twist at the end as to whom was truly responsible for the death of the captain. Kind of knew that Clarence would come to the rescue at some point (was sort of a reoccurring theme). Ending was pretty darn good. This is the kind of ending most books should strive for.

I have read alot of Gordman Korman books, and let me just say that this is one of the best! In the third and final installment of this epic series, we see our characters right were they left off in Book 2, this is good and bad because Book 2 wasn't my favorite but I do like to see the story continuing smoothly right from where it left off. I might reccommend this book to someone who hasn't read any of the "Dive" books, if they are a fan of Gordan Korman but otherwise I wouldn't reccommend it to ...more

Loved it!!!

I gave dive 3 a three star because there was not much action but the story line is very good but you have to read the first and second book so it makes sence. The book is about four divers that are searching for treasure but there are dangourus things like sharks and abstacies to get to the treasure. My favorite part was at the end and it was shooking but you have to read the book to find out what happens at the end of the story.

This book is about 4 divers: Kaz, Dante, Adriana, and Star. A British vessel named the Griffin sank in 1665 with a huge amount of gold on board. Kaz, Dante, Adriana, and Star have to risk their lives to find the Griffin's treasure and raise it from the depths of the sea. But there are other divers who are searching for the treasure. Will these 4 teens be able to beat their competitors to the treasure? Read the book!

This book was so good!! My book club has different tastes. One of us likes action, one of us likes anything she reads, and the other one likes anything that could happen, realistic and this is a good combination. This books was about the last book in the series, so in any Gordon Korman book it is a cliff hanger and we finally found out the truth about their summer.

Surprisingly well-done kids' thriller featuring thoughtful, smart diving enthusiast middle schoolers and a grumpy French dive captain.

Also, everything you ever wanted to know about decompression and the bends.

Middle grades students will enjoy learning the vocabulary presented in this exciting book, e.g., artifact, decompression, epilogue, figurehead, griffin.

Korman wrote his first book, "This Can't be Happening at Macdonald Hall", when he was 12 years old, for a coach who suddenly found himself teaching 7th grade English. He later took that episode and created a book out of it, as well, in "The Sixth Grade Nickname Game", wherein Mr. Huge was based on that 7th grade teacher.

Korman moved to New York City, where he studied film and film writing. While i
