"Enjoyable... Bosch's arch narrative voice carries over from his previous books...From The Tempest
and Lord of the Flies
to shows like Gilligan's Island and Lost, cultural allusions abound as Clay tries to understand the island's many mysteries and meets his fellow campers. Gilbert's watercolors bring in additional humor."—Publishers Weekly
