By his fourth day, he's made good time. Plus, after having spent a good 2 years immersed in communicating in nothing but Tsook, it must have been really jarring for him to suddenly hear English. The characters, the setting, the suspenseful plot, it all made this book impossible to put down. Something popped into my head about it a while back and so I had to re-read it. There was nothing but vines and tall, tall grass.
Mark faces many challenges when he is transported to a strange world. It is definitely not Kansas. Tone: The story has many happy and funny parts, with a mix of dark plots and story lines. The boy in th movie up knew all about the wilderness and was a top scout but he had never been on a camping trip before. He knew that a hallucination wouldn't attack him so this had to be a real place. Still a relatively simple read. The story is about how Mark grows, learns and survives.
I knew that a lot of his books had to do with survival and this book was no exception. I think this, because Mark never give up living. I was surprised when I saw the ending, and it is so good. Mark must then defend him self from alien elements, and figure out the mystery of the strange primitive tribes that inhabit the world. From the striking images of the alien world we us readers found ourselves in to the adventure that Mark found himself on. He became very strong and big. In the hope the end gives, it's also quite sad.
When Mark first appears in Transall, he made friends with a monkey. The setting of my book is Earth in the beginning, and a different planet the rest of the book. In this science fiction novel, the reader gets a glimpse of what might happen if a pandemic swept the Earth. Despite having read it 10+ y I really didn't think I was going to like this book but I was outrageously surprised. He then has to try and survive in this world and try and find a way back home.
Also, he makes weapons to make the hunting easier. I would recommend it to readers that like fantasy, adventure, and excitement. This book is written in 3rd person point of view. Strangely, looking back I think of this as similar to the first Marvel Thor movie in some respects. Definitely a must read for kids of all ages to be honest who enjoy science fiction and adventures. It has a little something for everybody: action, adventure, sci-fi, romance, survival, and good vs. The story takes place in late may of 1998.
But I think I should read it again. Overall, I did enjoyed reading this book because it was an quick read, but I think that the plot could have been developed further and there should be more unexpected twists and turns in the story. The book follows Mark's journey through this rough, savage, new place he finds himself in as he meets and has confrontations with tribes of native people along the way. And almost forced me to read it this afternoon and of course I said yes. The Transall Saga shows a post apocalyptic view of earth if the human race had to almost start over again. It is about a young boy that named Mark that talks his parents into letting him camp in the desert on his own.
He was able to hold his own in a fight, whether it is against another human, or a wild creature. He discovers new plants, animals, and people. I just love this book so much, I read it first when I was in middle school, and I still love it. His encounters with primitive tribes bring the joy of human bonds, but violence and war as well—and, finally, a contest in which he discovers his own startling powers. I felt like I already knew what was going to happen. He heared a snorting sound that came from beyond the trees. I am hoping to find the secret to why he loved it soooooo much more than the hundreds of other books that he read in his short life.
I was never bored while reading through the book because there was constant action and adventure. In the same vein this is a good adventure yarn of a stranger lost in another land. He knows something about how to get back to Earth, so Mark becomes friends with him hoping to get answers. Very good book by one of my favorite authors. On his quest, Mark discovers different tribes with human-like creatures and must learn to be part of the tribe itself. I remember reading this when I was in grade school.
I decided to finally read it and it was very good. I think this is one of the earliest pieces of science fiction I read and it set the bar pretty high for everything else. He then made friends with a semi-modern human, a modern human, then finally he made friends with someone from the future. Finding yourself alone in world that is strangely unfamiliar s When I was given the assignment to read a survival book, I immediately thought of Gary Paulsen and his books because I already knew that I liked his writing style. When he grows up back on Earth, he spends him whole life trying to prevent the Ebola Virus. While camping in the desert, thirteen-year-old Mark stumbles into a blue light that transports him into a place that seems just enough like Earth that he can use his recently acquired survival skills to stay alive while trying to find the mysterious blue light and return home.
