    The book Wild Man Island by Will Hobbs is a great book for those who love a good survival tale. The book is filled with pages of suspenseful moments. In the beginning we start off our main character, Andy, who is separated from his fellow kayakers by a sudden gale and washes up on ashore, freezing, soaking, and with no supplies except a credit card.I liked how in the book the tension was kept going and their was only a few dull moments. After Andy is temporarily paralyzed after desperately eatin [...]

    Another fine tale (in the adolescent literature genre) from Will Hobbs. The setting is Admiralty Island off the coast of Alaska. Although an unfortunate title for the book, there is plenty of substance. A young man, wrestling with the lost of his father some years ago, explores the past and present on his journey. The book has the right mix of current archeology and believable adventure to captivate the reader. This is a good classroom read or a fun independent adult quick-read if you enjoy the [...]

    My son was reading this for school and I've always been a sucker for survival stories so I grabbed this after he was done. It was much more than I expected, which was good and bad.The survival aspect failed entirely (which bummed me out because that was why I was reading the book) but that was by design as Hobbs morphed the story into one of hope and discovery.I'd say this was your standard middle grades book that most any kid would enjoy. It doesn't translate over to adults as well but I enjoye [...]

    Andy just wants to feel close to his dad, and have a great adventure when something goes wrong and he has to put all of his survival skills into play. This book was very good to me. It was full of adventure and mystery, and it kept you on your toes. The way the author described things made me picture them in my head and t was like a mini movie. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves adventure books. I would also recommend this to any younger kids because I think it would be a great read [...]

    Great adventure story; one of my favorites by Will Hobbs. There is tension, adventure, drama. A great read for preteens, teens and adult who want a well-written thriller that is G-rated.

    The theme of Wild Man Island is that if you want the respect of others, show why you should have it. This book takes place in southwestern Alaska on an island called admiralty. Despite it being 40 miles wide and 100 miles long, there is only one village, a small indian village named Angoon. It is mostly a dense forest with a few meadows and beeches. There are many ravens and wolves on the island. There are also many bears which is why the people of Angoon call the island"The fortress of bears".B [...]

Andy is on a whale watching trip on his kayak when a storm hits and he is he gets stranded on an island with a wild man. Andy is cold, hungry, tired and afraid of the wild man and he has to survive.

    Say you've been stranded on an island off Alaska for a week (with no food, fire, or shoes) and finally you were rescued by a passing helicopter. Would you a) kiss the ground the helicopter walks on; b) take the controls yourself and fly yourself out of there; or c) help the crew on their original mission then run back into the island without telling them. Andy chooses C. Andy has some issues with the "wild man" of the island, whom he meets under strange cirucumstances, as well as some of his own [...]

    This was a great read by Will Hobbs. Set in southeast Alaska at the ABC islands (Admiralty, Baranof, and Chichagof, due south of Juneau), 14 year old Andy is off on a sea-kayaking trip when he gets caught in a storm and marooned on Baranof. The pacing of the story was terrific and it kept my interest, to see how he fared in this strange, cold wilderness. The author's piece at the end explains what is fact and what is fiction, and is a welcome addition to the story. I highly recommend it for all [...]

    I love anything by Will Hobbs. What an adventure. I know I have done things that I thought "I'll have just enough time for this" and then something goes wrong. This young man should have been able to place his memento at the site his father last visited before he disappeared and get back to camp before anyone knew he was gone. But then there would not be this great adventure survival story.-reviewed by Susan Pinkowski Youth Services

    I really liked this book - lots of outdoor adventure and survival. The main character was alone for much of the book and so there were entire chapters without dialogue and everything was very internal. These scenes reminded me of Hatchet. I would have preferred a buddy to allow for dialogue, but I did like the archeologist figure and liked how he found what his father had been searching for. It really came full circle.

    Benjamin Torres3/2/15Period 3/4 Review On the last day of a trip, fourteen-year-old kid named Andy Galloway is sailed away from his group which strand him on an island. He thinks he is alone, but he sees a pack of wolfs that has a dog in its pack. The dog leaves the pack and into a cave. Andy walks into the cave, and sees that there are stuff that are made by a person.

    I've heard Will Hobbs speak at conferences and he is a lot like Gary Paulsen. This one isn't his best novel though. [return][return]Thirteen-year-old Earl Pryor is much too big for his age, and much too powerful for the anger that rages within him when classmates tease him, the girl he likes disappoints him, or his parents' problems get too real.

    My Side of the Mountain, Island of the Blue Dolphins, and Hatchet are classical survival books for kids. Wild Man Island is a survival book for a new generation. Like all the books by Hobbs, these high interest books are perfect for reluctant readers. Set on the islands of Alaska, a teenager becomes lost while on a kayak adventure.

    Andy slips away from a kayaking group in Alaska to visit the site of his father's death. On the way back he is blown off course to Admirality Island. He is thought dead, so he must survive in the wildnerness. He encounters unexpected animals, a mysterious wild hermit, and finds traces of the the earliest pre-historid Americans

    I thought this book was well written and the this really jogs mind of a middle schooler like myself. The turning point of this book was when Andy decided to go and find where his dad died but when he starts going back waves start to make him go backwards and he is pushed all the way past his fathers death site he later wakes up on the wild man island!

    This book paints a great scenario throughtout the whole story. Its an amazing story of how a child my age got lost in the forest of Alaska. He fought for surivial. Along with that, he used his techniques for survival.

    Brian Engler
    I really really liked this book. it was a very good story and written well. I wish there were more books just like this. It was a man vs nature type of book. I liked how they had you believing the story was going to turn one way and it turned down a new path. This is why I really liked this book.

    Another slam dunk by Hobbs! A great adventure peppered with the complexities of human relationships. The archeological background added an intriguing element and I couldn't put it down! Fantastic writing with a purpose.

    YA book about a boy who finds himself stranded on an island in Alaska. He has to survive and learn to get along with the bears and wolves who live there. He stumbles across a man -- a wild-looking man -- living alone on the island.
