PRESSURE by Brian Keene

PRESSURE is a superb book. It's perfect for a Summer read. If anyone does a Summer Reading Challenge, then this book should be on the list. PRESSURE is one of my favorite creature features. It reads like a movie and the action never stops. Brian Keene's writing keeps you on the edge of your seat, reading late into the night. 

There is a catastrophe off the coast of Mauritius. Carrie Anderson is a world champion free diver and marine biologist who joins a scientific expedition to discover the cause of the catastrophe and how to stop it. 

Carrie Anderson is a great lead character. Her colleagues enhance the story. They must face a sea creature and corporate goons. Some of the characters are named after horror authors. 

PRESSURE is filled with monstrosities and murderous operatives. Carrie and her crew are off to the races, trying to stop the extinction of all mankind. This is a fun read. I wish I would have read this one at the beach. The sea monstrosity thoroughly creeped me out. The action on the boat is amazing. I liked the Clickers Easter eggs, too. I need to read that series by the way. 

Brian Keene's writing style is solid. The dialogue felt real. The characters have plenty of depth. I really dig Carrie and her crew. The storyline stays nice and tight all the way through. The ending is great, too. 

PRESSURE was my first Brian Keene book. After reading several of his stories, this is my favorite book as of right now. I need to finish reading his other work. 

Highly Recommend!

5/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
