Product Description

Review

Praise for" The Cay" Mr. Taylor has provided an exciting story The idea that all humanity would benefit from this special form of color blindness permeates the whole book The result is a story with a high ethical purpose but no sermon. "New York Times" "Book Review" A taut tightly compressed story of endurance and revelation At once barbed and tender, tense and fragile as Timothy would say, outrageous good. "Kirkus Reviews" * Fully realized setting artful, unobtrusive use of dialect the representation of a hauntingly deep love, the poignancy of which is rarely achieved in children s literature. "School Library Journal," Starred Starkly dramatic, believable and compelling. "Saturday Review" "" A tense and moving experience in reading. "Publishers Weekly" "" Eloquently underscores the intrinsic brotherhood of man. "Booklist" "This is one of the best survival stories since "Robinson Crusoe."" "The Washington Star" . A "New York Times" Best Book of the Year . A "School Library Journal" Best Book of the Year . A "Horn Book" Honor Book . An American Library Association Notable Book . A "Publishers Weekly" Children s Book to Remember . A Child Study Association s Pick of Children s Books of the Year . Jane Addams Book Award . Lewis Carroll Shelf Award .

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an enthralling read for teenagers and adults alike . It puts across the issues of racism in a simple but direct and unsentimental way. The characters are strong and resourceful. Timothy's use of creole dialect adds a sense of time and place. The location of the story and its time during World War Two is unusual for the British reader, making it interesting and different.
The story has a reasonable pace and the outcome is satisfactory, despite the death of a major character.
The current edition lacks the fine line illustrations in previous editions, which added to the impact. I can see that the cover has been changed to presumably appeal to an older audience, but it is dark and indistinct and does not immediately arouse the interest of the prospective reader. Don't judge this book by its cover, as it is a very good read.

This book taught you lessons on how you can survive blind on an island. It also shows you that when you're blind you can learn how to do alot of things. I thought that Timothy was a hero because he saved Phillip's life two times.

The Cay by Theodore Taylor is a great book. I liked how Timothy helped Phillip learn to live on his own. After Phillip was helped by Timothy he could do a lot even though he couldn't see.

I thought the book was neat. I think you should read this book because it tells you some exciting things. It made a prejudiced boy see people differently.
