Only 147 pages so come on now, how painful can that be? I read it in a few hours and enjoyed it. It is what it is, a short story.

I fell asleep reading this book! I hated it a lot, but HAD to read it for school. Out of my whole class of 32 kids, ONE KID liked it. The storyline was okay, but definitely could've been better. I felt myself saying, "Okay, you only have twenty more pages left, you can do this, and then you won't ever have to see this book again."

I remember reading this book when I was in the 4th grade. I can still recall parts of it all these years later. I'm glad to see it's still in print.

We read this book as a class novel and it is amazing! It is a tragic story of a boy living in the Caribbean and sets off at sea with his mother. When suddenly the ship gets torpedoed! He has to survive on a flimsy raft with a tiny bit of chocolate for food and a small amount of water. I rate this story 5 stars because it is a great book for all ages and plus it is a classic. I would also recommend reading another classic called The Hatchet. I am only on chapter six, but is starts getting really good before chapter two!

We're reading this as a class novel study right now and I'm really not enjoying it. This book has almost too many details for my liking.
