Wilderness Wars Reader Reviews

Wilderness Wars

Isabelle Bavister

Loved this book. Very dramatic and interesting. Didn't want to put it down.

Brilliant book. Really dramatic at times and I couldn't stop reading it.

Charlotte Dunn

A modern fable about nature and future generations, and a vivid story full of near-misses and sinister accidents. Realistic adventure which I really enjoyed.

The story is about a girl around my age who moves with her family to an uninhabited island with her bother and parents so that her father can help work on the development of a resort there.

It is a very fast story, full of action, events and great scenes where nature, the wilderness, and some of the creature in the island start to ‘fight back’. It is not very complicated and there aren’t lots of extra people within the story, mainly just Em and her friend Zac who quickly realise what is going on. However, their problem then is to convince the teacher and parents.

It is really a story of one generation’s destruction of the environment and their need to change their behaviour for the sake of nature and the next generations to come. It is a book to make you think and an easy to read, realistic adventure story. You may even be able to call it a modern fable. I liked it both as a story and as a message.
