|LC Cataloging in Publication Summary:||You are shipwrecked on a beautiful Pacific island in 1869 and must choose a course of events that will get you off, keep you there, or, indeed, ensure that you survive at all.|
This is a good, fast-paced gamebook. Unfortunately it relies on a lot of cliches which have already been used repeatedly in other gamebooks, so there's very little here that doesn't sound familiar.
Fantastic Adventures, while not an overly innovative or groundbreaking series, managed to capture a sense of nostalgic fun and atmosphere despite the short-lived nature of the series. Shipwrecked on Mystery Island, while relying heavily on clichéd events as noted by Demian, manages to be an entertaining read despite the flaws I found inherent in this series. Fast-paced with a good sense of exploration involved for such a short book, it's a good way to kill off a little time on a slow afternoon. While I can't say that this is a book that will change your life or even set a new standard for gamebooks; it's one I recommend regardless.
