The Island by Gary Paulsen

islandI liked The Island a lot because I love to be outdoors and this book is about a kid that goes and stays on an island for a few days to find things out about himself. I like the way the author wrote this book. The book was easy and fun to read and the way he explained the characters it makes you feel like you have known them all your life. I think guys would like this book more than girls would because the main character is a boy that goes through things that a lot of other guys go through. If you like camping and being outside in nature you will probably like this book. I like the fact that in this book the boy stands up to his parents when they wanted him to come home from the island because they thought he was on drugs, but he wouldn’t go home with them because he knew he was doing nothing wrong. His whole reason for staying on the island was to try to find inner piece and the way the world worked. I don’t like to read very much but I liked this book a lot and would recommend it to other people that like being outdoors.
