The up and down of this book.
The good part of the book is that it is interesting because they might die in the sahara desert and you don't know whether they're going to survive when they’re found. They also jump out of a plane but the two of them don't know how high they are, and there is two people that are trying to smuggle drugs.The bad thing about this book is in the middle part of the start because it is really boring because nothing is happening as they are just swimming in a pool and I feel like it's not interesting and I feel like I should stop reading.
The theme of the book is about a boy and his friend trying to survive in the wild just like the author Bear Grylls. It also teaches you a little bit about how to survive in the wild. The reason I read the book is because I have watched Bear Grylls tv shows and I thought it would be about him surviving in the wild. It kind of is but it was a different person so I read on then when i finished it i got this book so I read it.the point of why bear grylls writing the book is to tell people about what he does as a job, to also get people watch his tv show, and to teach them a little bit about how to survive in a very hot place. The message behind this story is about survival and how to survival in the Sahara Desert.
