Mir hat das Buch ausgezeichnet gefallen, und ich konnte es kaum aus den Händen legen. Esther, die Hauptfigur, und ihre Kollegen, denen sie zufällig auf dem Schiffstrip begegnet, werden ausgezeichnet dargestellt, und als Leser fiebert man mit, ob und wann die Gruppe endlich gerettet wird. Zwar ist zu Beginn unklar, was die geschichte um Katy im Zusammenhang mit Esther zu bedeuten hat, doch am Schluss wird alles klar und verständlich. Wer gerne spannende, atmeberaubende Bücher liest, wird diesen Roman gewiss ebenfalls verschlingen.

3.0 von 5 Sternen If your looking for a good survival island book... this is NOT for you. 28. Februar 2015
Von bookluver1999 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*some spoilers*

It was just ok for me. I felt that Esther was zoning in and out of her head too much. Part of the time I was wondering if she had a brain tumor.. no joke! Cause she kept seeing things in slow mo, not being able to articulate, black spotted vision, passing out etc. I still don't get WHY she couldn't explain things.. I mean hello?!? Why doesn't she OPEN her mouth and say something that makes sense to defend herself or at least explain things. Those parts where she seemed like she was zoning out were really frustrating because so many things could of been avoided. Also these people were there for about a month and had nothing to show for it. I would think that they would of tried to create somethings to make their lives easier. Not to mention there has to be trash that end ups on shore that they could use. If your looking for a good survival island book... this is NOT for you. I did like most of the book up until the ending. The ending wasn't well written and didn't make sense. You didn't get the feeling that this could actually of happened. Things like WHY didn't they call the police sooner? WHY was Esther stupid enough to try and confront the people who took her daughter without her husband and the police as back up??? There sadly were a lot of stupid and frustrating parts that make you want to scream because this woman couldn't/wouldn't OPEN her mouth to explain things! Oh! and the husband Chris!! What a stupid loser!! WHY would you let your child go with someone who claimed to be your ex's mother? He didn't know this person and his ex told him that she didn't want anything to do with her family.. what part of that made it sound like it was ok to let you child spend a couple of days with people you don't know??? It's kinda sad because this book had the possibility to be a really good thriller/mystery novel.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Book set in Malaysia (Perfect Paradise Perhentian) 4. Januar 2015
Von TripFiction - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I travelled to the Perhentian Islands, off the Malaysian Peninsula, in 2006 and reading this book evoked all kinds of pleasurable memories of my own, although the storyline in no way mirrored my own experience… (thank goodness!)

Esther starts her journey in Kuala Lumpur, just a few days before she turns 40, with a failed marriage behind her. Her daughter Daisy is being cared for by her ex, Chris. For Esther, this holiday is intended as a voyage of self discovery and a means of replenishing her energy reserves, she needs and wants a total break on a tropical island. Esther is resourceful enough to find her way by bus from KL to Kuala Terrengganu, to Kuala Besut and over by boat to the Perhentians, Kecil and Besar, a journey I was thrilled to observe her make, as it was one I too made all those years ago. I was there with her in spirit, avoiding the open sewer holes in the coastal towns, and on the islands revisiting the big reptiles, the sticky heat, the amazing vegetation and just the glorious setting that makes these islands so special.

Days of indolence on the beach become the norm until Esther and some new acquaintances are invited by Samet on a day trip by boat to a ‘real’ tropical island, uninhabited and remote. Once they arrive on the deserted island, Samet discovers he has forgotten his lighter to start the fire for their barbecue, so zips back to Perhentian Kecil. And that is that. He never comes back and they are stranded, days turn to night, the sun rises and sets; and this becomes their routine, for days and more days, time is indeterminable. Water and food have to be found. Of course there are overtones of Lord of the Flies, characters turn on each other, despair stirs after a while, and madcap plans evolve.

In the book there is a parallel second story, which describes the plight of Catherine, who has been brought up in a religious sect run by Moses, and who has fathered most of the children in the compound. Catherine determines to run away, and the reader is left to wonder how the two stories will eventually tie up. Some red herrings along the way may throw the reader off course, they may not.

All in all this is a great holiday read that will transport you to this part of Malaysia for the price of a book! And I wish I had had access to this novel when I visited the Perhentians. I could have sat on the beach, safe in the knowledge that I would have a bed at night, and food when I wanted it, but my imagination could have been fired as I looked across the ocean – I could have identified innumerable little boats that could have belonged to Samet, I could have imagined the giant lizards strolling through the jungle (in fact one spent a lot of time living under my hut) and I perhaps might have wondered how I myself might have fared, should I have found myself ‘stranded’. Happy reading.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Even better than expected - strongly recommend 30. Oktober 2012
Von SoozBuch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I had already read a few of Emily Barr's books and remember instantly ordering most of the others straightaway as I was so hooked. I hadn't realised Stranded was out initially and was delighted when I came across it. It's more serious in theme than several of her other books, although they also usually have a more serious undertone. Very few books this year have managed to stop me from doing anything else for a few days, but Stranded was one of them. I couldn't concentrate on anything else, as I wanted to know what happened next.
The telling of the relationships between those stuck on the island and how they cope with being in close proximity to each other, as well as how they begin to mistrust each other, become paranoid, etc, was completely realistic. What would you do as a mother, if you were stuck on an island, and you had no way of contacting the outside world? What would you think about? The novel, typical Barr, makes you really think.
I also found the combining of the 'two stories' throughout the novel, with interspersed chapters for the additional piece to the puzzle, both intriguing and confusing (in a good way) as I couldn't understand its relevance and I overlooked a vital clue!
The sinister nature of much of the novel is much darker than Emily's novels which I have already read, but no less effective for it.
The action propels you along at a fantastic pace, particularly impressive, given that the characters are deserted on an island with not much they can do. I can't tell you how many different scenarios I came up with for why they had been left there, or if they were ever going to be rescued and how. But there were many!

I like to think of myself as a bit of a detective when reading books, but I can honestly say I didn't guess the ending nor who the bad guys were. The loose ends were all tied up superbly and all the subtle seeds that had been sown, and of which I had not necessarily noticed the significance were taken to their natural conclusion. I guess the end really does justify the means...
4.0 von 5 Sternen A More Realistic Gilligan's Island, Don't Be Put Off By the Cover 22. Juli 2012
Von James N Simpson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Stranded is slightly different to the regular formula you get in an Emily Barr novel. It's still read as if you are inside the mind of a female main character so you only know what she sees. Like the other novels, that character isn't the brightest woman on the planet, nor street smart especially when it comes to travelling through a culture vastly different to their own. However there's a lot less of the travel side since the majority of this one revolves around the narrator (Esther Lomax) a woman about to turn 40 who has just been divorced and since her daughter is spending the school holidays with her ex has realised there's no reason she can't travel, and a group of six other strangers, stranded on a deserted Malaysian island, after their guide and his boat never return to pick them up. It sort of has a little bit of reality show Survivor feel and there's even parallels to Gilligan's Island with the makeup of the tourists (ie two couples a couple of single people). Unlike the characters on Gilligan's Island though, these people think a lot about their partners, family, especially children back home and what they must be thinking. Along with the survival both physically and mentally of the island's inhabitants, as you're reading along with the characters you are constantly wondering what happened to the guide? Why have they been left there? Will they ever be rescued? There's also a parallel flashback story which interrupts the main story every now and then revolving around a teenage girl named Cathy who in 1988 is living in God's Village, an obvious cult to the reader. Does this story have anything to do with why these Western tourists are on the island in the modern story?

Stranded is a fairly good story that does keep you wondering. Cathy living in the cult is a fairly likeable narrator, Esther a little less so but more likeable than main characters in earlier Barr novels such as Tansy (Backpack). The main thing I don't like about this book has nothing to do with the story, I just don't get why recent Barr books are getting more and more female reader market (you can even say bordering on romance novel looking) covers. This is making it more and more embarrassing for guys such as me to read these books in public. Barr's early books such as Backpack, Baggage etc didn't have these "chick lit" covers and focused on trying to sell to the backpacker and travel market with their covers. Overall the stories inside haven't moved away from that demographic and readers after a romance novel will be disappointed. Probably no coincidence why later Barr books are only getting a couple of reviews (ie readers).
5.0 von 5 Sternen Unputdownable 24. September 2012
Von LiesbethJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Yet again, Emily Barr manages to write a gripping travel book with a twist. A pretty dramatic twist at that! Having been to the place where the story is set, it was very easy to picture the scene. The story-line is amazing - it's very easy to identify with the characters and the unexpected direction that the story takes leaves the reader almost breathless. I couldn't recommend this book more!
