Thank you Bear
Beck, the main character of Gold of The Gods, finds himself in many situations where he uses real life survival techniques. The techniques in the book are very much like the ones used by Bear in the show Man Vs. Wild on The Discovery Channel. For that reason I think many of his television fans would also enjoy his book.
The books genre is teenage fiction so older readers may not enjoy it as much as younger ones. As an older reader I would have liked to see the three main characters being a bit older. The three main characters were in their early teens. I also would have liked the book to stay more reality and less fantasy. I thought giving the natives super natural powers was a bit of a stretch and took a little away from the educational value of the book. I did like the underlying message of protecting the environment and the encouragement to enjoy the natural beauty of the world around us the book sends to it's readers.
I was impressed the book had a lenticular central image. When you tilt the book back and forth the boy on the cover appears to move, swinging a stick at you. It is nice they would put that quality into making the book.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series. For readers interested in the survival techniques I would also recommend Bear's book Man Vs. Wild which is also available here on Amazon.com
I didn't mind the fantasy aspect, as it seemed to fit with the mystique of the Kogi tribe. The age of the characters worked well enough for the story, although I didn't really get attached to the twins at all. Some of the characters were a little over the top, but I think young teens will find that charming rather than off-putting.
I have to say, I was surprised to find the book so well-written. There were a few problems with the narrative, but nothing that really messed up the flow. Grylls is both a good writer and a good story-teller. A very good read for anyone-- child, teen or adult, who likes the idea of adventure but isn't looking for a long read.
It all made sence and Beck was gust so good , he ate fish eyes like who gose that no one that I know and to tell you thats a fact.
It was minde blowing that they/Remeres did find the lost city but no gold.
So ya it was so good .
