This is totally in the adventure genre so if you like to read good books about survival and peoples will to survive then, I would totally recommend this book this book teaches you what's is really important in life, such as your will to live and respect towards nature. If I were to rate this book I would give it 9 1/2 out of ten but if you have already read this book and are looking for a similar read check out hatchet by Gary Paulsen.

I really enjoyed reading this book because it send you to the end of your seat and doesn't let you sit back. If you love adventure books this the one for you!
