3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I expected., 4 Mar. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Explorers Wanted!: On Safari (Paperback)
By Alex aged 10

Explorers Wanted was to a certain extent a decent book, although the story kept getting broken up by puzzles and questions, which I enjoyed, but would rather have the story following on. It made you tune out of the story and then have to tune back in. I think Chapman put them in to try and make you remember the facts the book had told you, which is a good idea, but as I have already said it breaks the story up. Some of the facts he tells you are very interesting, but also disgusting. Before I read the book I thought I might like to go on a safari to the African grasslands, but not now no get bitten by Tsetse flies or being wriggled into by the worms the bilharzias snails inject for me. No Thank You Very Much. I'd much rather snuggle down on my sofa and read a book. Almost everything pout there is against you. The Animals, the creepy-crawlies, the sun, the eco-system. Almost everything. I think the Smoke-that-thunders or Mosai-aa-Tunya was a good incentive to get you to the end, all in all I think Chapman has written a interesting book about his time as an explorer.
