Scary but not horrific., 17 May 2009
Very much along the line of Terry Nation's 'Survivors' - but written for children (published 1 year later). Gripping story line but the main character does not engage with the reader - yes, he's in shock but a little more reaction from him would have rounded out the character. I have read this as an adult - but I'm absolutely sure a teenager would be more critical. The ending leaves the story wide open - would be perfect matter for classroom discussion.
