    " I first read this with no idea what it was about, I didn't even read the summery, and this, I think, is the best way to approach this book. All I will say in way of plot is think Most Dangerous Game meets Animorphs. Dr. Franklin's Island is an island survival story with a twist. "

    " I would have to say that this book is BEAST. I loved it, and I am pretty sure that you will to. This book is so great, this book is defiatley in the top 20 that I have read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizzie :] Collins | 2/3/2014

    " I liked this book. It was really good but certain parts gave me nightmares... but other than that the book was good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/28/2014

    " Bizarre. 3 friends get turned into animals when they get stranded on a mad scientist's island. Intense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sitara | 1/24/2014

    " This book so far is very interesting and adventurous, hopefully it stays that way! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 1/23/2014

    " While Ann Halam's YA novel offers an imaginative and horrific story for young readers, I personally found the book to be somewhat bland. Halam offers an interesting set-up for her characters, three young teens who, after surviving a plane crash, find themselves stranded on a deserted island with a mad scientist, but it is her characters that are the cause of the book's main issues. The book's three young teens come across as quite dull and while their situation is sympathetic, there is nothing that makes them particularly interesting, especially the protagonist Semi, who has little personality. To accompany the characterization problems is the novel's dialog, which is often wooden and unconvincing. Younger readers may be able to overlook these problems and focus and enjoy the terrifying scenario Halam has set up, but older readers may become easily bored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arianna Orlandi | 1/18/2014

    " I really liked this book. I think it was because Semi and Miranda didn't escape before they had the....surgery. I liked how the bad guy was winning at first - where the good guys win so easily, it's hardcore overdone. If I could, I would give this book a 4.5 because I couldn't decide between the 4 and the 5. This book was really good though and I recommend it to anyone. "

    " This is a very very very CREEPY story I enjoyed it though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley | 1/2/2014

    " I don't really think that science works like that. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 12/26/2013

    " bizarre book - I kept reading it though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 11/28/2013

    " It took me a while to get into this book, but it was worth it. "

    " ugh. couldn't finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 11/2/2013

    " This book is probably one of the most surreal books I have ever read. It is also one of my favoritest books. Reminiscent of H. G. Well's The Island of Dr. Moraou (Moraou is probably spelled wrong but oh well) this book is both sickening and hopeful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trevor | 10/22/2013

    " This book could almost be classified as strange. genetic mutations and things like. It has a pretty good plot line and i think shows you something about humans in a way we have never seen them before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Racquell G | 10/15/2013

    " I love this book and I probably always will "

    " I read this book so long ago but it made an impression on me. It was very well written and I hope to read it again soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 2/23/2013

    " One of my most favorite childhood books even though I usually avoid horror. Good suspense and atmosphere. Reread again after finding it in the bottom of a box and still gave chills. Truly hit the fears of loneliness and being at mercy of a madman "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashmitha Rajendran | 12/31/2012

    " It has a different twist to it. It is not what you expect. "

    " I was skeptical when I had to read this book to school. In the end I liked the story line and the plot which is what I was skeptical of but I thought it could be written better. Overall it is not a spectacular book but I am glad I read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennafer | 6/30/2011

    " I think the author did a great job in the sequence of events. But it felt like she was spreading the events kuind of thin. A good thing was that you never knew what was going to happen next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 5/25/2011

    " SO. WEIRD. First they're humans, then they're monster animals, then they're humans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 3/30/2011

    " This is creepy. Seriously, you won't forget it. Not Stephen King or anything, but slightly disturbing to think about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charisa | 2/28/2011

    " This book was INSANE. Very well written, and the plot ans story line was amazing. It keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I couldn't put it down! I could see this being made inot a movie... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 2/21/2011

    " This book may not get as much applause as the Hunger Games, but it has some of the emotional involvement. Sometimes I got really angry with the unfairness of the whole pie. "
