The perfect holiday - but even paradise has something to hide... She'd only known Mike a few minutes. Just long enough to watch him die. And now he fills her dreams with cold blood. Why is the ocean calling her? Down to the depths - to a secret she can only see in her nightmares. ...more
Oh Christopher Pike, you disappoint me with this one. I was going to give it one star, but then it would have been rated the same as the Twilight series, which is in a category all to itself. This book is simply ridiculous. The basic story is that an 18-year-old girl named Jean goes on a trip to Hawaii ...more
Why this wasn't as good as my favorite CP book, Remember Me, or some of this other oldies, this was still a fun ride into the past. Oh, the cheese! The fashion! The murder! The random, 40 page info dump on scuba diving! The gravestone that just reads "MIKE" across it! (because duh grave stones come that way).

i vaguely remembered this book from when i first read it around age 12
i learned in extreme detail how to scuba dive
i predicted pretty early on what happened
i was actually really bored reading this and it was more of a fun joke to continue on and laugh at internally at some parts because of how ridiculous it was

overall i didn't hate this, it just was really sl ...more
So I have to say, Thank you, Mr. Pike. Still loving creepy books all these years later.
In this story, you find a young girl who finds out that her dreams are actually becoming a reality. The ghost of a boy comes to her to help her reveal the truth behind a big secret of a scuba diving instructor. The story will keep you on your toes and because of the detail, ...more
On an amusing note, on the back of the book, the main character, Jean, is said to be vacationing in Hawaii with her friends Mandy and Jill.... but then you read the book, and Jill is actually named Michele...
Not a "good" read by any stretch, but the nostalgia factor earned this an extra star from me.
All in all, this book Bury Me Deep by Christopher Pike is a very good book. Each chapter just has you craving more with its gruesome details. Death after Death, Jean is left to cope with the pain of losing her friends, while on what is supposed to be a fun vacation. It all starts with Jean having to change her flight because she was called home from school to help her mom deliver puppies.
Jeans gets on her flight Monday morning instead of Saturday. On her ride, she meets a guy named Mike, and t...more
The few elements of horror were pretty creepy, such as the dream of the guy in the plane underwater, but in between those elements, I read everything there was to know about how to scuba dive, how to make sure the hose was clear, how to keep your go ...more
