Guy Toulouse is an unmotivated high school student obsessed with his self-image and a girl out of his reach. When he flees to the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State to escape his troubles in Seattle, he doesn't expect to encounter a dangerous gangster, a mystery surrounding 16th-century European buccaneers, and a hidden cave with a grisly history.
The Author warns you in the beginning that you will probably hate the main character, and he was so right. Guy Toulouse is self-centered, arrogant, spoiled and what a lot of teens are, dissatisfied with everything. He whines and places blame on anyone but himself.
The first half of the book is a bit boring and it's hard to continue but if you keep at it, the second half of the book will reward you.
Lost in the caves near the ocean, no way out, the personality of Guy will under go many changes, most for the better.
Believe it or not, I think my biggest grip is not Guy himself, but the way he keeps referencing Gerald. Gerald said this and Gerald said that and that would be Geralds words. That got a bit trying and old. A few times is okay, but the constant took away from the story, hence the 3 stars instead of 4. I would suggest dropping about 80 percent of the reference to Geralds words.
I would read more of this Author if they learn to beef up the beginning to reach the end. I enjoyed the last half of the book very much and wish the first half was even partly as interesting.Guy Going Under: A Cave Adventure
