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

If your looking for books that will hook boys into reading, then this is the one! As a teacher I know that getting boys interested in novels has become increasingly difficult. Boys are great with informational books or comics, but it is harder to catch their interest in chapter books. This book is the third book in a series of the "Island" books. It is highly interesting for its audience. It is about 6 chidlren (4 boys, 2 girls) that get sent on a boat as a punishment and a storm shipwrecks them on an island.
On this island the children learn to work together and take care of one another (developing life skills). They discover some smugglers and even "Junior" which is a left over atomic bomb from World War II. It is a wonderful series for boys that will appeal to their need for adventure and everyone of all ages. It is a different story line and has many real challenges that you see these characters go through that may help you in your everyday life. I suggest this book for any child around third grade and up.

What a page turner that keeps you guessing what is going to happen!!! Korman's trilogy has found a place in my classroom reading series. I've bought a classroom set of the whole entire "Island" series. I read each book in one day. It was nerve-racking waiting for the final book to come out, but I was NOT DISAPPOINTED.
Who would have known that the ending would turn out as it did? The least likely islander came through and saved the day...by the skin of their teeth. I was gripped in the first book by the characters, the second by the separation of the kids and all of their problems. The third book kept me "on the edge of me seat." This has got to be turned into a big theatrical movie...I'll be the first in line to buy my tickets.

This book keeps you guessing. Who's alive? What will happen? Is this real or a reality show? Anyway, it was a great book and we kept on reading every night until we had all 3 books read and were excited about the ending.

Time for the 3rd book of Island series! Things are not looking so good for Will, Ian, Charla, Lyssa, Luke, and J.J. The smugglers won't leave. The bomb is still in the sand, buried. If the smugglers find it, they'll probably sell it for a SUPER high price. Will they escape? Will the smugglers leave? WILL THEY SURVIVE???????? (p.s. none of them die)

A Kid's Review on November 16, 2009
Format: Paperback
In Island Book Three: Escape, JJ hid in one of the smuggler's boxes, and after the long trip to Asia, tried to tell the police the whole story. He got cauht by Fatso and had to spend a few days with the guards. When he finally talked the smugglers into believing that the whole story really happened, the police found out and immediately put the smugglers in jail. JJ went with the army to get the rest of the castaways. While this was going on, the rest of the castaways finished up surgery on Will using Novocain. Before they knew it, a helicopter came to rescue them, harnessed the now five castaways, and lifted them up with a rope. Did they forget something else?

In the final book of the trilogy, the tension escalates as the young, marooned crew find themselves with company on their tropical island. And, it's not the kind of company you'd invite to dinner! To make matters worse one of the friends needs medical attention...soon! Now getting off the island isn't just about finding their way home - it's the only way to survive. If you've enjoyed the first two books, you'll definitely want to read the satisfying ending to this adventure.

Wow if you want to read a good book you should order this book right now. Talk about being at the edge of your seat. When you read it it is like you are transformed into that book and you don't care what is happening around you. I suggest you don't read it if you dont have a lot of time because when you start reading it you will not want to give it up when you have to go. So get this book but don't read it unless you have read the first two which are as a good as this one.

Things were bad enough when Luke, Lyssa, Will, J.J., Ian, and Charla were stuck alone on the island. But now they have company-real bad company. Plus, Will is seriously injured and needs help immediatly. Before, escape was something the kids could only hope for. Now it's a matter of life and death. - I recently bought all 3 of the "Island" books and could not put them down. (Read all 3 in 2 day) I highly suggest them to all readers!
