Pressestimmen

'Splendid stuff' Eva Ibbotson. 'A darkly comic and hugely inventive adventure ... it could be the next big thing' Eoin Colfer. 'A charming tale, based on an original and intriguing premise and with more than a whiff of magic about it' The Bookbag. 'The sequel had better come soon' Observer. 'Thrilling ... Written in a vivid, urgent style, its sense of loss at all the creatures we have lost or are losing may be as critical to the new generation as Tarka the Otter' Times. 'I haven't read a book this good and interesting since The Hunger Games ... an edge-of-your-seat fast-paced read' Guardian Children's website. 'Inventive, with laughs, tears and cliffhangers' Sunday Times. 'An action-packed, dystopian eco-thriller with memorable characters, both animal and human, and a powerful message about the interdependence of man and nature. A promising debut' Daily Mail.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht wirklich etwas neues 21. Januar 2014
Von Freitag
Format:Taschenbuch
Ich habe zu dem Buch sehr gemischte Gefühle. Eigentlich bin ich ein sehr großer Fan von Jugend- und Kinderbüchern. Aber das war evtl mein Fehler. Dieses Buch wirkte viel mehr wie eine Zusammensammlung bereits existierender Bücher. Man hatte die ganze Zeit das Gefühl so etwas schon gelesen zu haben - nur besser und spannender.
Beginnend mit den 4 großen Städten in denen die Menschheit versucht zu überleben, die Szenerie einer Dystopie, eine böse Organisation regelt alles übriggebliebene der Zivilisation, bis hin zu den wohl ausgeflippt wirken sollenden Begleitern des Jungen. Man hat, in meinen Augen, zu sehr versucht ein klassisches (Sci-Fi)Abenteuerbuch für Kinder zu schaffen. Die Protagonisten wirken sehr gezwungen "schrullig". Zwar waren mir auch einige wirklich sympathisch, so z.B. der Wolfsjunge, der General und der Hirsch, auch der Schreibstil war angenehm flüssig zu lesen und stellenweise war das Buch durchaus unterhaltsam, würde es aber keinem Erwachsenen empfehlen der bereits genug solcher Kinder-/Jugendbücher gelesen hat. Außer man ist evtl neu in dem Genre "Fantasy/Sci-Fi Jugendbuch".
Für Kinder jedoch, ich glaube die gehen sicherlich unvoreingenommener an solche Dinge heran, für Kinder ist es sicherlich ein gutes Einsteigerbuch, da es wenig komplex ist und sich schnell und einfach liest. Auch, wegen dem einfachen Englisch, evtl für ältere die beginnen möchten auf Englisch Bücher zu lesen.

An sich ein solides Buch des Durchschnitts. Es reißt einen nicht vom Hocker, langweilt aber auch nicht wirklich.
So innovativ die Idee auch anfänglich wirkte, man hätte mehr daraus machen können.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Where Wild Things Roam 27. Februar 2014
Von C.E. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
"The Last Wild" is a YA novel that tells the story of a future where mankind has destroyed the planet, destroyed the wilderness, and released the Red sickness upon all who remain.

Hopping on the "humans are bad and killing the earth" bandwagon, we have a novel of a dystopian future in which people don't eat real food, cities are abandoned, and animals are all but missing. A post industrial wasteland of filth and broken dreams.

Enter our hero: Kester. Mute. Alone. Institutionalized. But the boy has a gift. He can call to the animals and they, in turn, can talk to him. Of this desperate gift a plan is hatched: Kester must escape and find the cure for the animals, as they are the last Wild remaining.

The novel is full of fun and fantastic imagery that brought a smile to my face: the General (a cockroach) and the Stag. Proud wolves, addle-brained Pigeons, and a host of other charming characters make up our ragtag band of adventurers. Along the way, Kester will meet friends and foes alike, he will experience doubt, loss, pain, and know true sacrifice.

The book reads well, is quick and holds my attention well. I compare it to "The Graveyard Book" by Gaiman as it is something that appears much more simple on the outside than it really is. I am sure that middle readers will enjoy it, and it presents a gentler, more lyrical option to the current crop of derring-do YA novels of a blasted future. Well done, and it left we wistfully wanting to read more of the adventures of Kester and the last Wild.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Last Wild - A Promising Beginning 21. März 2014
Von James Marsh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Disclaimer: I am a 33 year old married man. I am also an ecclesiastical leader, so I try to read material that I think would be appropriate for the young men and women in our youth group.

I was given a free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The Last Wild is a fanciful tale set in a dystopian world where almost all animal life has been wiped out by a mysterious virus.
The world is populated by a colorful cast of characters, both human and animal.

The main character spends almost all of the book mute, and this introduces both complications and clever workarounds.

The animal cast and the world they explore together bring a great deal of color and humorous touches to the narrative. (I especially enjoyed the white pigeon and the wolf cub.)

It’s imaginative, thrilling, fun and the pace of the story increases with every chapter.

The book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, but the story does reach a satisfying conclusion to several plot threads.

I can’t wait for the next one!

Content:

The language was decent throughout.

Violence: Guns are pointed, threateningly at characters - both animal and human. There are some animals that fight each other, some are shot at, including fatally. Some show symptoms of the virus, and some even die of it. One is lost and presumed dead. It is all handled with tact and given the due gravity it deserves.

I would say it is comparable to a PG and would not have any trouble handing it to anyone over the age of 8.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent idea, not particularly well executed 12. Mai 2014
Von Jennifer Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Summary:
Told in 6 parts, this tale looks at Kester Jaynes, a troubled boy that is locked up in a home. In his world, animals do not exist. When a cockroach starts talking to him and he is able to communicate back, he thinks he has truly lost his mind. Regardless, he listens to the small group of animals that surround him. With his small group, Kester is set off on a journey to save the animals. Along the way he makes some new friends and learns a lot.

My thoughts:
Honestly I was hoping for so much more in this book than what I received. Torday has a very simple writing style which fits very well for a middle grade book. There is nothing that will pull the reader out of the story, and very little British slang. It was a perfectly good story. It just didn't really pull me in like others have. The idea and premise are brilliant. I love that are damaged hero is being fixed with the love and care of animals, especially since I'm a huge fan of animal therapy. He's a sweet child that definitely becomes something more than he started out as. There just wasn't that extra bit of magic that made me really want to share this book. I guess it just wasn't imaginative enough for me. Some of the descriptions I felt were flat and the pacing was even enough that I didn't feel excitement at any particular area. There is a bit of a cliffhanger, but things are wrapped up quite easily. The conflict while enormous in theory is not shown with the same enormity within the book. It just wasn't outstanding. It's just good.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book should be used in schools! 9. April 2014
Von Crossroad Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book should be used in schools! YES! This book was so good. I didn't know what to expect going in. But I am very happy that I got a chance to read it. The book is split into a 6 part adventure which works so well. It has people who stutter, a boy who only talks to animals, and a world where animals are going extinct. So what more could you want? I think this book would be great for kids who are dealing with these issues. And it was also an eye opener to the real issue of animals going extinct. The main character Kester meets a very large range of animals from small to large. This book has so much imagination and I think that both kids and teachers as well as some parents would die to read this one. I loved it and will be buying a copy for my daughters class.

4.0 von 5 Sternen 3.5 Stars 8. Mai 2014
Von Mandy Payne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This book is written for the child who feels they can't relate to other people as well as animals. As a child, I used to wish I was a dog because I felt they got me better than adults. This book is for the child I was.

I read this book myself for the review, as my niece was too busy to get to it. My impression was that a child might really enjoy and understand the plight of this child in the future who must save the animals. I believe that when I was a young girl I would have greatly enjoyed e fantastical dystopian story where horrible people killed all of the wonderful animals.

Overall, the book is worth a read for the right child.
