Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-Roman Sanchez and his classmates are kidnapped by masked gunmen who threaten to kill them unless they are paid ransom money. Roman takes charge of the group in their fight for survival, using techniques and the karate taught him by his deceased father, a SWAT team officer. After an escape, recapture, and some life-threatening moments, the police catch up with them. This is a short, intense, action-packed story by a master of formula adventure. The implausibility of the situation and the lack of character development will be unimportant to readers caught up in the story. Reluctant readers will especially appreciate the hair-raising plot and the smooth writing that does not waste a word. Suspense is maintained to the very end.? Anne Parker, Milton Public Library, MA

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on February 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
Captive by gary Paulsen is about 3 kids that are kidnapped by two guys that first kidnapped a whole class. But then the tire pops on the stolen bus and the kidnappers act like they were real bus drivers. Then a guy with a truck helps them but then Spoon and Ripper[ the kidnappers] shoot the guy. They took Woody, Mitch, and Roman [ the kids that get kidnapped] and take the man's truck I think that Gary Paulsen [ the author ] was trying to tell us that you should never give up. Because in the book the kids try to get help by writing[ on the bathroom wall at the gas station] the license plate number and where they think they are hiding. They always tried to escape. that's why I think that Gary Paulsen tried to say to never give up. I like this book because Gary makes it seem like you are the one that is getting kidnapped. I like this book also because it is actin packed with adventures. He keeps you exited because when you read a chapter you just want to keep on reading and see what happens next. That's why I think that this book is the best for me.

Captive has a great plot and storyline, but it is too short and doesn't have enough detail. Over all this book is good, but not worth your money.
