I started this book at around 10.30 pm and I couldn’t put it down. It was so good. A father, Jim and Roy, his son are going to live for a year on an uninhabited island in Alaska. This was the father’s idea and the son isn’t really happy at first, especially when he realizes that his father is feeling very down and acts unstable. At the end of Part One, the inevitable and yet unexpected thing happens, and from then on everything seems to fall apart.
This is the 11th book I read for the 2011 E-Book Challenge!
