Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Island trilogy:

"Exciting." —The Toronto Sun

"A hint of menace permeates Shipwreck, along with humor, angst, and mystery. Readers won't want to miss the continuation of the riveting saga in books 2 and 3." —Amazon.com

The second one is even better than the first one!

There is humor here and there that was hilarious, which Gordon Korman combines with the story to make it as enjoyable as possible.

Format: Paperback
Ian, Luke, Charla, and Will have survived a terrible shipwreck and one week on the open seas with no food and scarce water. Now, they have landed on a tropical island in the middle of nowhere. Will is suffering from amnesia, and the kids don't even know if J.J. and Lyssa are still alive. The only human beings on this lonely island, they must make a fire, build a shelter, and gather food and water to sustain them, in addition to searching for Will, who has run off into the jungle. When a plane lands on the island, the kids hope to be rescued, but instead, they find themselves in the middle of some very dangerous and illegal dealings. Now the kids have a far bigger problem than simple survival. They have to hide all traces of their existence, or they won't have any hope at all of making it out of this alive. Gordon Korman continues his thrilling Island trilogy with book two, which picks up right where book one left off. I can't wait to read the third book and find out if the kids survive and make it off the island.

Stranded. Separated. Six kids are stuck on a desert island. They have no food. No shelter. Nobody knows they are lost. They take from the island in order to survive. But what if they're not alone? - I recently bought all 3 of the "Island" books and could not put them down. (Read all 3 in 2 days) I highly suggest them to all readers! (I suggest this one the most, though.)

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By S. Silverman on May 15, 2005
Format: Paperback
The second book of the trilogy, the young survivors of the shipwreck in Book One end up on an apparently deserted island very far from anything. They're alive, but the beginning four have one member who is delusional as a result of the traumas of getting from the shipwreck to the island, and three who work in terrific cohesion to establish life-sustaining routines. The characters are good, as in the first book, but the island lends itself to better imagery without the burden of maritime vocabulary of the first book. As in the first book, a considerable amount of toleration for wildly unlikely occurances is necessary. It turns out that the island is not as deserted as the four think, and they witness crimes, deal with wild animals and general survival, and confront evidence of human occupation of the island in the past, among other things that strain credibilitly. Assuming that one overlooks these strains, and Korman makes it easy for the reader to do so, the book is good fun, maybe more enjoiyable for an upper elementary reader than the first book and it can be read independent of that first one.

Island by Gordon Korman

Imagine sailing on a dreadful boat in the middle of the humongous Pacific Ocean, when suddenly something horrible happens! Next thing you know you are on a cabin top with four of your friends alone with terrifying sharks! When you read this book remember to hold on because it's going to be a bumpy ride!

There they knew they were sailing on a cabin top for 7 days and finally when the 7th day came they were stuck, stranded on a island with no food or water besides rain, coconuts and these fruit that made them sick to there stomach. They had no were to go nothing to see, but the question is will anyone ever come?

One thing I like about this book is how the author drags you into the story through the many details. For example, the author uses powerful words such as "shrieking," and you're able to hear the character's panic through the language he uses. I also like how he says, "This time he wouldn't stop crying till sleep claimed him." This language relaxes readers, then suddenly the word "Slam!" appears in the beginning of the next chapter. Also, he writes, "Four orange life jackets came sailing down" I just love how he says orange and sailing because it's so detailed and I can see everything in my mind.

It's really amazing how the author compares the characters because at first they hated each other. They barely knew each other and wouldn't even sleep in the same room! However, when the boat sank, they all helped each other and they acted like they were brother and sister which made it fun and entertaining to read.

As you read you hope they make it home safe and sound but something else could happen! They could get bit by a shark or starve to death and die! To find out, read books one, two, and three.
