Captives

Martin and his family are enjoying a sun filled vacation on a beautiful Caribbean island until they are stopped at gunpoint blindfolded and bundled into a truck that. The novel Captives written by Tom Pow tells the dull and uneventful adventure of two families who get taken and held captive This story takes place on the Caribbean Islands in the middle of a Jungle The major themes of the novel were to never give up and to be persistent Although the theme was good the word choice was very dull and the plot wasn t attention grabbing Although the characters faced many difficult challenges there were too many people to keep track of So many that the author couldn t even begin to describe any of them This made the story un amusing and displeasing Every chapter is unenjoyable the reader cannot stay focused on the plot The slow plot makes it hard to keep reading The word choice is not attention grabbing although the idea for the story is interesting It is a shame that the author did not do a better job in telling the story because if the characters were limited and the word choice was enticing the book would have been uite alluring I m sure I heard him sob 63 is the last sentence in the chapter The finishing sentence of a chapter should leave the reader interested but to me this sentence is not very tempting As the story goes on the chapters become repetitive and again uninteresting A main reason this book couldn t keep my attention is because there were too many characters and it was confusing to read Tom Pow did have a good mind set when writing this story but it just wasn t interesting enough I would not recommend Captives to readers who find it hard to get into a book I would give the book 2 out of 5 stars and I hope Tom Pow can try again with a alluring novel

    While this was an interesting book and the plot was exciting it just didn't seem so real My least favorite thing about it was the fact that half the story is told in Martin's father's point of view while the other half is told in Martin's which made me feel like I was reading the story twice The one thing that
