I bought this book because I was going on a kind of holiday and I thought I'd be a little bored. Gee. This book could make watching paint dry seem like riveting entertainment!
A bunch of idiot boys get stuck on an island and turn into animals. I didn't like it at all, whatsoever. That is my personal opinion - I didn't like the story, I didn't like the characters and I didn't like the style of writing.
I should have known really, I don't really like stories about people stuck on deserted islands or anything like that, but I was curious as it is such a well known book.
Ah well, I tried, didn't like it and given it to charity. No doubt someone else will enjoy it more then I did.
