I wasn't a huge fan of this book. Although there were events where the book did catch my attention, it didn't quite keep me interrested for the entire book. I would recomend this book for people who like a book with small events leading up to one big event, with that pattern repeated throughout the whole book. I personaly am very picky when it comes to books. I need a book that will interrest me the entire time. Sliding Beneath the Surface was not the book for me.
