here is one about sharks -
Sharks: A 400 Million Year Journey by Ted Rechlin
Murder by Death
Just double checking: is this a work of fiction? The category is for titles that are "Mysteries, suspense, supernatural or horror".
Nighttime Reading Center
It a graphic Novel that talks about different Sharks.. If it doe not work then I am okay.

I think I might be reading the cheesiest book of them all: Meg by Steve Alten (ISBN: 9781786695741)
Murder by Death
Added. :)
The better to see you, my dear
Sphere by Michael Crichton
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
Murder by Death
Added.
The better to see you, my dear
This edition might work better for 20000 leagues: http://booklikes.com/twenty-thousand-leagues-under-the-sea-anthony-bonner-jules-verne/book,3567251

(forgot it was a pain to find when I tried to change editions on my shelf)
Murder by Death
Thanks for that - I wasn't looking forward to cleaning up that record (as it obviously needs it) and now I can take my time with it. :)
Portable Magic
How about Lord of the Flies ISBN 0140283331 since the book starts with a shipwreck and the boys are marooned on an island?
Murder by Death
I'm going to hold off adding this one until we hear from Moonlight on this one; I don't know enough about the book to have an opinion.

Would "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman work?
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
How far into swashbuckler territory do we want to take this (e.g. Rafael Sabatini -- "The Sea Hawk" and "Captain Blood")? They're definitely sea-related and suspenseful ...

Thank you!
Books, hockey, and a bucketful of snark
The Kraken Wakes by John Wyndham. Terrified the life out of me as a teen. I don't know if it's still available on 'Listen Again', but there was a fantastic Radio 4 adaptation by Val McDermid a couple years ago.

Chris' Fish Place
There is Kraken by China Melvilee. It takes place in London but does concern a kraken, and it is supernatural. The Terror by Dan Simmons, Sailor Twain by Mark Siegel, Mermaids and Other Water SPirit Tales from Around the World by Heidi Anne Heiner, Ghost Ships by Richard Winer.
