Meet the Author

PAUL ZINDEL (1936-2003) wrote more than 40 novels, including The Pigman, one of the best-selling young adult books of all time, and Pardon Me, You’re Stepping on My Eyeball! His Broadway play, The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, won him a Pulitzer Prize and was produced as a film directed by Paul Newman.
Mr. Zindel taught high school chemistry for ten years before turning to writing full-time. His work as an author brought him to exotic destinations around the world, from Australia’s Great Barrier Reef to the monkey forests of Indonesia. Drawing from those experiences, he created The Zone Unknown series—packed full of horror, humor, adventure and bravery—with reluctant readers in mind. It includes six titles: Loch, The Doom Stone, Raptor, Rats, Reef of Death and Night of the Bat.

    Great piece of literature

    If you enjoyed any of zindel's other novels such as The Doom Stone or The Reef you'll definitely enjoy this book. Great for the young reader who enjoys action and adventure. Pick this book you won't be disappointed.

    Not the best I've ever read.

    This book was not my favorite but it was okay. There were some boring parts, but some parts were good. The part I liked was when they got to the woods and set up their tent the first night. It was the first night the bat came. So the kid named Jake brought his dad along. His dad brought a lot of people with him because they were going to catch the bat. That night one of the men was going to get water from the river filled with lots of water. But to get to the river you have to go across a little one person the bridge. It is about 50ft long and 2ft wide. Only one person could go at a time because it was so small and long. It could only hold little amount of weight. So the man started to walk across the bridge. He fell in a pile of slime and said it smelt really bad. Then he heard a little noise, it was the bat. He got up as fast as he could. The bat grabbed hold of him digging his claws in the man's shoulders. The man started screaming as loud as he could so someone would hear him. The most boaring part was when they were trying to catch the bat. I would recommend this book to someone who likes books with lots of blood in them, and someone who likes mysteries.
