pretty good book.. had me hooked from the beginning..
as with most books that have movies made based on them, the book is way better…

have you ever wanted an island all to yourself?
would you be willing to throw away the life you’ve made for it?
would you be willing to cut yourself off from the rest of the world?
would you be willing to live without the comforts you are used to?

this book is about a group of people stumbling upon a map that leads them to a secret island… and what they have to deal with when they decide they want to stay.. and to keep others from stumbling upon it too…

emotions: happiness, sorrow, disgust, awe, greed, triumph, failure.. and so much more..
