One of the strong points of this book is the suspense. There's always twisted that keep you reading and wanting to find out what happens next. The book also seems really realistic. Will Hobbs seems to know a lot about the outdoors and surviving and you can tell in the way he writes this book. I've never read any of his other books but after this one I think that I would enjoy another of his books.
There was one thing that I didn't like about this book was that there wasn't really a whole lot of action. There was plenty of suspense, like I said before but the suspense was more from the plot and not from something that is physically happening to Andy. He never really gets in any fights or any action like that. Otherwise this book was great and I would recommend it to anyone who likes outdoors books.
The author has written the book in such a descriptive way, it takes the reader into Andy's adventure: the woods, the amazing cave explanation, the wild man. It is amazing! All the details and explanations were so well written, it was like a mini movie in my head imagining what happens next in the story. But in all books, there are parts you don't like. I didn't really like the fact that there were so many details about what Andy thinks, I felt like skipping pages when some chapters were like that. Some of the information was too much.
I like Wild Man Island, because there is danger, excitement, and mystery waiting for me to read in every page. When I first read this book, I couldn't put the book down. It was so thrilling, I finished the book in two days. I thought to myself, this is an exciting book from the first page to the last. Every chapter I read kept
getting more and more mysterious and suspenseful. I rate this book with five stars. I recommend this book to all readers who like adventure and excitement all in one.Read more ›
Andy discovers what his father died trying to find. I would recomend it to people who like to read books that have a lot of adventure in them.
BY MOHAMAD AT DHS
This all began when Andy took a kayak trip to Alaska. His father, an archeologist, had passed away on an island near where Andy and his group were located. When everyone decides to make camp and go to sleep, Andy had an idea to borrow a kayak and go to the island where his father died. He thought about all the good times his father and him shared. Andy knew it was getting late and thought he'd better get back to his group so he left the island and started paddling back, when he got caught in the shocking storm. The storm blew him off track, causing him to land on an island with no food, no shelter, or a way to get a hold of anybody. This island was called The Fortress of The Bears, or Admiralty Island. Andy searches the island and faces many things. For example, he finds a Newfoundland dog, which had led him to the dog's owner or so called "master". This owner was known as the `wild man'. Andy wonders who this `wild man' is and what other hair-raising things he will come across. (Unfortunately, I didn't). I believe that I set my expectations high as to my reading selections and what I want from a book. Therefore, in all fairness, other readers may find 'Wild Man' interesting so I would recommend this book.
The excerpt from the inside cover leads the readers to believe that the book is so exciting. Yet in actuality, I feel that it sums up all the excitement in a nutshell and sets the readers up for boredom and disappointment.
