    In Too Deep (The 39 Clues, #6), Jude Watson In Too Deep is the sixth book in The 39 Clues series. It was written by Jude Watson and released on November 3, 2009. The story is set in Australia and Indonesia. Amy and Dan have to decide how much they're willing to risk, and what they are. Ian and Natalie Kabra's mother, Isabel, joins the hunt, as she could not stand the mistakes her children have made. The Kabras send the Cahills an 'invitation' to a meeting at a dock in Australia.

Amy can't decide which Lucian to trust – the cloying Isabel Kabra, or the serious, but deadly, Irina Spasky. Irina stops following Isabel and helps Amy with the clue hunt. She turned away from Isabel because she lost her boy, Nikolai, when she was on a mission. Amy's life is threatened by Isabel who holds her out to shark infested waters, but she escapes thanks to Hamilton Holt, who helped her because of their previous alliance in The Black Circle. Amy and Dan are briefly distanced from each other when Irina tells Amy and Dan before she dies about their parents being murdered in front of Dan (Amy had been too filled with grief to tell Dan that their parents were murdered). ... تاریخ نخستین خوانش: روز بیست و سوم ژوئن سال 2014 میلادی عنوان: در اعماق - کتاب ششم از 39 سرنخ؛ نویسنده: جودی واتسن (واتسون)؛ مترجم: بهشته خادم شریف؛ تهران، ویدا، چاپ دوم 1392، در 207 ص، شابک: 9786002910530؛؛ چاپ چهارم 1397؛ موضوع: داستانهای نویسندگان - سده 21 م در این داستان «امی» و «دن» درمی‌یابند که پدر و مادرشان در راه بدست آوردن یکی از سرنخ‌ها کشته شده‌ اند. همچنین می‌فهمند که برای پید کردن سرنخ بعدی باید به استرالیا بروند… ا. شربیانی

It must have looked similar to this when Robert Cahill Henderson first arrived. It was flat on top, and the white smoke was mixed with gray. Dan heard a rumble of thunder but hardly registered it. He was too much in awe of the sight in front of him. Somehow you could feel the power of it, of how much boiling energy was contained inside. Even though he'd pretended not to listen, his brain couldn't help but record the facts Amy had read to him back on Shep's plane: 36,000 people died, mostly in the tsunamis that followed the final explosion on August 27; two-thirds of the island was blown away; the final, massive explosion was heard more than 2,000 miles off; shock waves circled the earth seven times; the ash cloud was propelled upward for fifty miles and circled the globe for thirteen days, eventually creating amazing sunsets throughout the following year. All the numbers added up to one bad volcano.

    As they went on the clue hunt, the next stop was Sydney, Australia, but not Australia. It was just for misdirection. As usual book and events begins in a complicated range, so many places and so many people. It only gave clearing when it reached the end. Yet some parts needed still explanation unlike the previous books. Also some parts made me totally confused. Thinking of Nellie, and also their dad's cousin Shep, I thought All of them, with Amy and Dan, would end up as a family.

However, she turn out to be a secret person, or Madrigal, or someone who wants to stop them. On the other hand, somehow I remembered Alastair, and thought he stopped the chase. At the last chapter it they found him at their destination, with and Ekat stronghold, and stole "the poem" from their parents and caused their death long ago. Simply put, Everything turns into a mess. This chase requires two things: find clues and trust no one.

    Amy was better in this book. A lot stronger I think. (spoiler) Jude Watson I hate you for killing off Irina. She was always my favorite villain of this novel. And to make her death so damn heroic. (end of spoiler) But this is one of the few 39 clues book in which I actually got what was happening. A few books in the series were not capable of giving me that.I found this book quite satisfying.

    Wow. Wowowowowowowowowow. What is up with these authors enjoying torturing me?! Lemme take some deep breaths...I can't believe what Jude Watson did in this one. Seriously. SERIOUSLY?! I think this one, out of the previous ones, was the best written. It's between this one and the first one by Rick Riordan. Both of them delved into the emotional parts of the narrative as well as giving you a grand picture of just how dangerous this clue hunt really is in the story. Isabel "Cobra" is evil.

I don't think I can even talk about her anymore. (view spoiler)[WHY DID SHE HAVE TO DIE?! WHYWHYWHYWHYWHYWHYYYYYYYYYYY?! (hide spoiler)] Okay...I'mma just go cool it, maybe start the next book. But first, I'll probably be doing this: How could a "kiddie" series make you have so many feels? How could I get so attached to who I thought was an enemy, and was until the end? I really need to stop.

    The 39 Clues: In Too Deep was written by Jude Watson and this book is by far the most well-written and my favorite out of 6/11. So many surprises in just ONE book. This is getting more exciting.

    There was so much more character development in this book than in all the others. It was person-driven rather than plot but that came off naturally. I actually found myself liking Irina, or at least sympathizing with her rather than hating her. I'm so glad Alister is back. And Hamilton is becoming increasing helpful. Jude Watson has been the best writer so far. And what is with Nellie? Australia was meh. Big spiders so ew, but that's about it for Australia. It could have been anywhere.

    Even though much of what is written in these books is fairly absurd, I have really enjoyed listening to the saga progress. And now that I've finished the sixth book in the series, I am interested in getting through the rest of the series.

Dan and Amy are starting to learn more about their parent's past.Since their parents deaths, Dan and Amy are getting clues that they hid prior to dying. Amy and Dan are traveling under false Australian passports. They have to meet ground transport when they land in Moscow, Russia. But they wander through the airport to see if anyone is following them. Natalie and Ian check into observatory hotel so they can spy on them. Dan and Amy opponents in the competition think a 11 and 14 year old ruling the world was a little ridiculous.They don’t want Amy and Dan to win. Dan and Amy find a clue carved in stone on a rock. They also remember that Grace’s lawyer Mr.McIntyre said, “never trust anybody in this competition only trust yourselves”. They are finding this true. This book 39 Clues “In Too Deep” takes place in modern day Russia. Where Dan and Amy find three clues that will lead them to their next country. All of these books take you to different countries. It is interesting to hear about different cultures. The theme for "In Too Deep," is for every problem there is a solution. You can always find answers to most problems in life. Dan and Amy did this by using their resources for solving all their troubles. They couldn't just count on other people. They had to use things they had with them and it worked out pretty well. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes adventures. Also if you like series books. These books have people that get into dangerous situations which keep you hanging on. They are great for seventh grade and up. They are short stories but good.

    I'm going to give a generic review of the series. Basically because I'm lazy and don't want to write 39 reviews. Okay, 11. We finally read Book 1. And then because we liked it so well, the entire series. One son (age 12) has read them all, the second son (also age 12) is on Book 2. And son #3 (age 8) will be starting as soon as he finishes his current book. I thought the premise of this book very interesting.

I thought the premise of this book very interesting. I loved how they integrated history and geography along with problem-solving skills and code cracking. Add in the action, humor and intrigue and kids (and some adults) can't put them down. All three of us that have read 39 Clues thought Book 2 the weakest of the series. But as one son said, after finishing the series, "Gordon Korman seems to be getting better. I think he's a decent author now." Some of the books are better at teaching the history part, others just barely skim the surface and you don't really learn about the person they're 'highlighting'. I appreciate that they're clean books - no curse words or you-know-what going on. There is some violence (very little, if any, blood) and several murder attempts, but they never work. The series would most likely be called twaddle by my Charlotte Mason friends. I do, however, think it has more redeeming qualities than most kids literature and I'm happy to see my boys devouring a book every day or so.

If you do you will become the most powerful person to the world. But is you fail you will still walk away with one million dollars. The best part of the book is in the middle of the book. Because it is the first time in the book that you are on the edge of your seat. It is when Amy is waiting for a meat up with her and Ian which called the night before and sad that he had information regarding her parents murders. The meat was spose to be across the bay from the Sidney opera house in the middle of the day. But while she was waiting for him in the door way of a shop suddenly her enemy / compeer Isabel walked up behind her. And she couldn't run away because she had her finger on her neck and the only reason she was scared is because her finger is poisons if she pulls her finger back it will kill her. but the only reason she wanted to talk is because she knew she was being set up by Ian. And at the end they became team mates. The one thing I think that they need to fix is the beginning for the book. Because at the beginning it takes almost a quarter of the book to start to get interesting and I love books that are adventurist and have a lot of action in the to make the book not be boring. Also a thing they need to work on is the story line in the beginning. Because in the first 30 pages the book is all over the place and you cant be on one topic. Over all I love the book and I recommend reading this book is you are interested in adventure books or moves like karate kid or action moves like fast and furious. Because the story starts out in Russia and eventually goes to Australia where they go on a plane ride around the outback and go surfing and all kinds of other active activity's. so if you like this genre of book than 39 clues in too deep is the book for you and I would recommend going and reading the hole serious of 39 clues.

    My opinion on the 39 clues is that the author is the best at wording the book. He/She used the words like sacrificed or like clutching. The author even added great punctuation because he/she put periods,question marks and exclamation points in the most unique places he/she did not just put periods in all of the end of each sentences.

The thing i love the most is the way the author is wording it. The setting of the story is in the current time and at the airport in the bathroom stalls. But they are exploring through the ocean. This book is also perfect for kids that are in the middle level.

    This is one of my favourites by this saga so far! Jude Watson did her magic again. On of the thing that I prefered was learn more about the past of Amy and Dan's parents, but I also like learn more about others characters we know yet, like Irina, Nellie, Isabel Kabra... oh, and yes: my ship between Amy and Ian still be here...

    This book was so good I read it in 2 days!! I love the series. Great job! Amy and Dan are too vivid characters who are on a mission to find the 39 Clues their grandmother left behind. If they find them all, they receive a huge prize- something that the other Cahill branches want for themselves. It’s a really interesting series! They all come with cards to play a game online with.

    This book went a step farther than all the previous ones. We've got: -Isabel Kabra being actually unhinged -Finding out Dan and Amy's parents were murdered -The true beginning of Ian and Natalie's character development -The conclusion of Irina's character arc :( -Nellie being lowkey shady Honestly? From this point, we're in the endgame now. This book went a step farther than all the previous ones.

I guess I should just be thankful I'm not trying to keep up with the Conspiracy 365 series by Gabrielle Lord. That's being published each month. (Although, when I was a teen, I was all about the Fearless series by Francine Pascal. But I quit that around book seven or eight.) Appetizer: In Too Deep doesn't start out too deep...or rather, a better term would be "too tense." Amy, Dan and their au pair, Nellie have arrived in Sydney, Australia, not on the hunt for one of the 39 clues but on the hunt for connections to their parents, who the siblings have learned travelled to Australia before their deaths. Of course, as Amy and Dan reconnect with their father's old best friend, the extended Cahill family won't leave them in peace (and this includes the unexpected appearance of a new Kabra, who'd previously stuck to the sidelines). So, I absolutely love the contrast between the cover image, the book title and the opening paragraph! The book begins: "The sound of rushing water filled Amy Cahill's ears." Right there. I knew she was in a plane descending to the bottom of a lake or an ocean! Oh the dramas! But then, the story continues: "If she kept her eyes closed, she could imagine she was standing under a beautiful tropical waterfall. Unfortunately, she was hiding in an airport bathroom" (p. 1). Oh, Jude Watson and the cover designers, you had me going there. I think I implied it previously, when I reviewed Beyond the Grave, the fourth book in the series, but thus far Ms. Watson is my favorite among the 39 Clues writers. In this book, I couldn't help but notice how well she integrates some of the previous Cahill adventures into her story. (I appreciated this because all of the books are running together. And since I can't keep up with the series, there's no way I could possibly find the time to go back and RE-read). I did have a little trouble with the pacing of In Too Deep. This book seemed more relaxed (that's not to say there aren't tense moments? Exploring an opal mine only to have poisonous spiders and a deadly snake dropped into the the pit, cutting off the only exit, anyone?). But, when I was about three quarters of the way through the book, I kept flipping through the remaining pages, wondering why isn't this over yet? We'd had emotional upheaval (by the way, I don't understand how these kids will trust anyone EVER again. EVER! There is not a person in the world who does not have ulterior motives when it comes to them.), Dan and Amy were moving on to a new country (Indonesia. They explore some of the history surrounding the Krakatau eruption)...But, why is this book still going? I felt like the new territory could have belonged in the seventh book. But as I kept reading, the answer became apparent: More emotional upheaval ahead! Funz! In this installment, Irina's characterization is explored in more depth. And she makes some difficult choices that made me like her a lot. I was also drawn in by the murderous Isabel Kabra. That is one heartless lady. Like psychotic killer heartless. Vile villain heartless. In no way redeemable heartless (and kids, I'm someone who found redeemable aspects in Tom Riddle/Lord Voldemort). I thought it was an interesting touch to bring in such a sinister character. Because most of the "bad guys" that the Cahill siblings have faced so far have all gradually been debunked from being pure-evil. Untrustworthy still? A few psychotic tendencies when you get in their way? Yes and yes! But not evil. Dinner Conversation: "She and Dan could be off on a tangent. This trip might not lead to a Clue. They had no evidence that it would. But they had both known the moment they saw [their parents'] passports where they were headed next. They didn't even have to exchange a word" (p. 4). "Throw a roo on the barbie, mate!" Amy winced as the bad Australian accent crashed against her ears. Then she cringed as she saw Dan dressed in an Australian bush hat and a safari jacket. He had a fake rubber snake wrapped around his neck. "You call this a low profile?" she hissed, swiping the hat off his head and stuffing it in the side pocket of her pack. "What was I supposed to do in the airport shop?" Dan asked. "I had to buy something" (p. 5). "You have been resourceful, I give you that, " Irina said. "You think on your feet, you and your brother. But there comes a time when you must think deeper. You must face the thing you don't want to face. Until you do that, you're vulnerable." "To what?" "To someone who will tell you what you want to hear," Irina said. "So I ask again. What happened the night of the fire?" (pp. 55-56). Tasty Rating: !!!

I do have to question their logic in taking the bus to Circular Quay though when there's a perfectly good and MUCH FASTER train :P I've done the bus myself when there was trackwork (twice! What the hell are the odds of two of my four Sydney trips in a year falling on trackwork weekends?!) and it is soooooooo much slower than the train, omfg. Although the odds of Amy and Dan being there on a trackwork weekend? Pretty high. So I'll let that one slide. BUT. And I am a horrible person but I can't just let this one go. And it's funny that this has only struck me now, at book 6, but... Saladin is a cat. And they've been flying him all over the world. And now they're in Australia and they just landed in Sydney and collected Saladin, the cat, and I AM SORRY BUT YOU'RE NOT GETTING THROUGH QUARANTINE THAT FAST KIDS! I think the last country they were in before this one was Russia? It took me five seconds to google and discover that "Russia is not an AQIS approved country. This means you can not import a cat or dog to Australia directly from Russia." On the one hand, I'm being incredibly nit-picky here I KNOW. But on the other hand, that took me all of five seconds to find out. I know these books are all wildly fanciful and as if Amy and Dan would really be flying all over the place in the real world, but it bugs me when such care is taken to actually research their locations in some cases, but then in other cases there are such huge, glaring errors. Also, if you're going from Darwin to Java, you are not flying over the Indian Ocean. You're flying over the Timor Sea. We learned that one in primary school. Having spent a fair amount of time at Circular Quay myself, I'm also curious about how a speedboat might pull into the dock in front of an idling ferry but okay, okay, letting it slide. The author did mention Tim Tams, Cheezels, Burger Rings, Toobs (ew) and Violet Crumble so massive points for research there. Dan was also being all amazed over chicken flavoured chips! Do they not have those in America? Also Irina seemed to lose all her English but okay I'm done picking now. I enjoyed this one because it was set in Sydney, and Coober Peedy, and Darwin, and apart from the stuff I picked on above it was fast-paced and fun to read. I'm loving Irina even more (view spoiler)[so the ending kind of destroyed me and I hope she managed to survive! (hide spoiler)] Oh and I loved when Shep said somewhere was "only" about an eight hour drive away or something and Amy and Dan were all o.O at his casualness with the huge distance. THAT is very Australian :D

    This book series really keeps you on your toes. I think visiting Australia sounds really cool, and I don't even care much about traveling outside of the country. It was another crazy ride, and we really don't know who we can trust reading this. *** I mean.. what?! Spoiler (view spoiler)[Nellie is now seeming a little shady. Which side is she working for?
