Book Review on Captives by Tom PowCaptives by Tom Pow was an interesting book and it had a lot of action parts in it When Martin and his family go on a family trip to a beautiful Caribbean island, they suddenly get ambushed by a gang of freedom fighters The gang are sick of tourist coming to their country and changing everything.I enjoyed this book because there were many different things going on I particularly enjoyed the parts when they were on the island trying to find ways to be rescued and also how they had to do everything by themselves like making their own huts and cooking their own food Everything in this book was interesting and there were no parts that I disliked.My favourite character was one of the freedom fighters Miguel I liked him because he was the toughest and strongest out of the gang He was the one that had all the scars because he did all the hard work I also liked him because he did not hesitate to do things to his hostages such as torturing them.Over all I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading another one of Tom Pow s novels.From Kahurangi Morehu DOWNLOAD ⚕ 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 Heads For The Dense Forest Of The Island S Interior Pushed To Their Physical And Emotional Limits As They Are Forced Deeper Into The Wild Terrain, The Hostages Come To Understand Something Of The Harsh Political Backdrop Of Life On Sunny Santa Clara, And The Events That Have Shaped The Lives Of Their Captors And Fueled Their Actions Captives by Tom Pow is a suspenseful novel where the main character and his family are taken hostage on a Caribbean Island that has a large jungle on it The book details the struggle of the captives and tells how horrible the treatment of them was and the book is a really good thriller and has some good points in it but it does struggle in the detail category and I felt it could have described the jungle and the camp that they were spending most of the time in The book goes from being narrated and a journal form of describing what happened when they were captured This book does have some good parts of the story that I don t want to spoil but if you read to the end you will feel good about reading the entire book I would recommend this to anyone who likes a quick read or a thriller that is an easy read but still has some good points in the book for suspense and lots of point that will want you to keep reading I finished this book in 4 days because I just couldn t stop reading at some parts of the book that were near the end because that is really when most of the action happens and the beginning of the book really spoils what happens at the end because it is a flashback but it is still a good book but I felt like it could have been longer for of an experience but overall it was a good book. REVIEWED FOR PUBLISHER Scottish author, Tom Pow, has attempted something unusual with Captives using two different approaches within one novel half the story is told in diary form, the rest as a normal novel and really manages to pull it off quite well This story of being caught up in the conflict of another country and seeing things from multiple perspectives is engaging and harrowingly realistic, and the portrayal of two families torn apart by tragedy expertly drawn It s a challenging novel aimed at young adults who will easily identify with the characters of Martin and Louise, who are thrust into a nightmare of swirling emotions and physical danger It does, however, drag a little in places with the changing in styles, which hampers progression and this is a little frustrating at times. Captives by Tom Pow was an interesting book and it had a lot of action parts in it When Martin and his family go on a family trip to a beautiful Caribbean island, they suddenly get ambushed by a gang of freedom fighters The gang are sick of tourist coming to their country and changing everything.I enjoyed this book because there were many different things going on I particularly enjoyed the parts when they were on the island trying to find ways to be rescued and also how they had to do everything by themselves like making their own huts and cooking their own food Everything in this book was interesting and there were no parts that I disliked.My favourite character was one of the freedom fighters Miguel I liked him because he was the toughest and strongest out of the gang He was the one that had all the scars because he did all the hard work I also liked him because he did not hesitate to do things to his hostages such as torturing them.Over all I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading another one of Tom Pow s novels.From Kahurangi Morehu To be honest, I thought this book would be better than it actually is I admit, it s probably the way that the book is written that makes me dislike this book It was written in a form of a dairy that was kept by a person in the story I might even say it was kept by the main character After using the daily form of writing Mr Pow for some reason decided to carry on writing the story in a chapter form of writing and that made me a bit confused Anyways, the plot was interesting though I often don t read these kind of genres I kind of think that if this book was written ONLY in a chapter form of writing, I would enjoy reading it than I did now.All in all I gave this book a 2 star rating because of the confusion in writing forms and because of the fact that I don t read books on this genre and that probably had something to do with me not liking this book. 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 kept me going were the clues that Martin gave the reader that something drastic would happen And it did with the scene on the lakeside But otherwise I wasn t very into the book or the plot too much, as the book didn t really keep my attention The idea itself that guerillas would kidnap tourists and only hand them over if their needs were met is good, but not realistic. Captives had a promising story line and plot After all, not many books are about vacations being ruined by the tourists being taken captive But honestly, it didn t live up to my expectations I was expecting and hoping for a survival story, but this just wasn t it The captives were just allowed to do pretty much whatever they pleased, as long as the Geurillas could see them As a matter of fact, they even played a card game with their captors The plot was confusing, throwing in all sorts of political bits and backstory that neither made sense nor affected the story in any way, and the geurillas plan was overall poorly thought out by the author There was no way they could realistically believe that kidnapping a few tourists would turn their whole government around The writing was poor The first half is the journal that the father wrote while kidnapped This writing was lacking and dull, really only saying what he thought of the experience and skimming over parts that were key He frequently spoke of his fellow captives being willing and able to work than I or Seeming excited at the prospect of building things Frankly, I wished to slap him Help the others, for crying out loud I can see why there was such tension in the group Then the second half of the book, writen supposedly from what the son, Martin, knew and what the girl, Luise, experienced, was sort of boring, though it certainly added some nice perspective to the whole thing Some of the parts were unrealistic, like the parents allowing their teenage children to build and sleep in a hut all their own without adult supervision in the hut, even if it is for comfort reasons , and view spoiler the fact that the girl fell in love with one of her captors That is unrealistic There would ve been enough hate there, especially with this character s headstrong personality, to keep her from loving the person who ruined her life at the time And I hate how they just killed her at the end hide spoiler 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 quite 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.
