zat's Thoughts: In this book, you play an unknown pilot of some sort whose plane has been shot down above a mysterious island, and you are now trying to find a way off. This is not a very good book. The text from section to section is disjointed in parts (example - in one part, you are swimming off a lighthouse, and the next thing you know you've found and opened a treasure chest!) and some bits just don't make sense. At least your animal companion isn't as annoying as in some of the other books in this series. Of the books in this series I have read, this one is unique in that the optimal ending is not at the last page. Not recommended.
