Negative Survival Review
By: Kayla Y. Weronika M. Kiefer M. & Connor B.
We really wanted to like this book by Paul Dowswell, and we expected more from it. Survival in our opinions wasn’t the best book. It barely kept us reading. We slowly developed our interests into the book, but then they dropped, by a lot.
The stories always had the same set up. It started with a nice day, the suspenseful part was in the middle, then they got rescued or they escaped, and gave us the story on where they ended up after the tragedy. We would prefer to have a little more of a beginning. It just explained the setting and then got into the story. Paul should've gotten into to more detail and gotten us to want to read more. Paul, at first seemed to be a good writer, but lost us around the middle.
We don’t think Survival is worth reading. It was for people who are desperate for non-fiction survival stories. We would rather choose a different book about survival, it was a pitiful book.
