No creepy sea critter!? What a let down. Thanks for the warning.
There are LOTS of sea creatures...just ot a Kraken. The odd documentary tone is present in some of his other books but not others e.g. Chocky, The Chrysalids.

Erm,...actually it didn't strike me as containing a lot of sea creatures at all. Sure, they mention a few but this all seems to happen in passing. It's certainly not as memorable in its descriptiveness as Jules Vernes famous subsea adventure that seems to have inspired this one at least in parts.

Oh, and before I forgot, the random references to Sherlock Holmes are also rather forced and ... inconsequential.

No, the writing was really underwhelming in this one.
So what were all those things crawling up the beaches?
