Its been a long time since I read the last Mission Survival book and although I have been so excited to read it to find out what happened to Beck and to get some real answers regarding his parents I found this really hard to get into. Previously I have not been able to put the books down but with this one I found my mind wandering and could not fully engage with the book.

I am not sure if the style of writing has changed or maybe Bear Grylls is just trying to finish the series but I found the book rather rushed and feel it was not quite like the rest of the series. I enjoyed aspects of it and still learnt a bit especially if you are lost in the forest and mozzies are attacking you just find a pine tree and and pull the needles off and squish between your fingers it will let off a gooey substance that mozzies do not like. You do need to reply ever hour or so but what a fantastic tip. But over all I found it was kind of repetitive and didn't get me too excited.

I always felt his parents where going to be alive, so it was bitter sweet to find out about his mother but his father still has a question mark hanging over him. Yes they are saying he is dead and he probably is but I kind of always wanted that happy ever after ending.

I usually enjoy Bears writting style and love the fast pace of it but did not get that with this book. It had its moments but maybe the delay of over a year has just killed it or maybe Bear just ran out of ideas for the story but either way it was lacking something for me. I am glad I read it just wished it got me more excited like previous books.
