“Island, Book Three: Escape,” by Gordon Korman

“Island, Book Three: Escape,” by Gordon Korman is the third book in an exciting survival series about six teens marooned on a desert island.

Main characters Luke, Lyssa, Will, Ian, J.J. and Charla have survived for several weeks, marooned on a desert island that is also used as a base by a group of smugglers. By now they have taken care of their basic needs: food and water, but they are still in constant danger of being discovered by the smugglers.

What is more Will was shot in the leg by one of the smugglers who was trying to kill a wild boar. Now he is dangerously sick, with a high fever. The teens have a few medical supplies but they are hesitant to try to operate on Will. They need a doctor, but the nearest medical care is hundreds of miles away.

But then J.J. comes up with a daring plan. If he can stow away on one of the smugglers planes perhaps he can make it to the mainland and get help for the stranded group. But can he get help in time, and even more importantly, will he be caught by the smugglers?

“Island, Book Three: Escape,” is a great survival tale, though its plot is still feels a little overdone. Gordon Korman's story has an unbelievable storyline, but the action and suspense keep the story interesting. The characters are much more believable, however, with enough subtle details and character traits to keep their interactions surprising. Gordon Korman's “Island” series is a great story for young readers.

I'm reading book three right now and wow

NathanKP said...

It definitely is suspenseful, but in my opinion it goes so far that it loses realism.

Thanks for commenting Jacob.

I LOVE the book but i have to do a book report on it and I need a hard word to decribe but i just cant find it!

I wonder if this book is true. I think this because in the epilogue it says that the captain of the ship that sunk got arrested outside a bar for six attempted accounts of murder.

I'm sure that you'll find your word Anonymous.

I don't think that the series is true. At least from what I have read about it. If I get Gordan Korman on here for an interview I'll ask him. ;)

Thanks for commenting.

This trilogy is amazing! I use it when teaching my 4th and 5th graders, and they are enthralled. I love it as well. These books keep kids (and adults) at the edge of their seats. It's a great book for BOYS!
