The Hotel Under The Sand by Kage Baker is entirely a book of adventure. I really enjoyed reading the book and would recommend it to anyone nine and over. The word choice is very good yet kids under nine might not understand some of it. In some parts of the book, I was held in suspense, yet in other parts I almost knew what was going to happen. There are some sad parts of the book but they go along with the story very well. They made me feel sad but I knew they were going to get better. The main character in the book, Emma Rose, gets caught in a storm and is brought to a deserted island that isn’t on maps. After a while of living on the island alone, Emma finds Winston. There’s just one catch; Winston is a ghost. Winston explains to Emma who he is and about the island. The thing that really grabs Emma’s attention is when Winston says there is a hidden hotel on the island. He tells her more about The Grand Wenlocke and Emma finds out the hotel went under the sand 100 years before. Together, they find the hotel and another helper, Mrs. Beet, inside. One morning, Emma sees a pirate looking man coming into the hotel in search of treasure. Then, Emma, Winston, Mrs. Beet, and Captain Doubloon look for the treasure Captain Doubloon was talking about. They find many clues, and along the way they find the great-grandson of the creator of the hotel, Masterman Wenlocke. After a while, guests randomly start pouring in the front doors and then . . . The whole story is completely amazing and I definitely encourage you to read the book. In conclusion, the breathtaking book, The Hotel Under The Sand, is an astonishing book that is truly full of adventure.
