    they kill or enslave everything in sight whether they need it or not they pray before they do anything i'm pretty sure the matriarch of the family was never actually named but merely called the mother or my wife any time she was relevant which was not very often near the end of the book the family actually shoots a cachalot they

    When I first started this book I found it rather comical at how many reviewers were appalled by all the animals that were killed mostly for food some for safety albeit some for sport or rather teenage childishness And I thought to myself not having read the book yet Where do these readers think their chicken nuggets and hamburgers come from Trees After having read the book I will confess there were a lot of dead animals

Earn that the danger has only begun Their new world will test their courage cleverness endurance and faith as they struggle to survive and create a civilization of their own in the wilderness Not I liked the story well enough If I had read a decent translation I might have given it 4 stars It s a great concept being stranded on a beautiful tropical island Their perception over 200 years ago would be uite different than ours today Some things that bothered me were the stereotyping regarding race and religion and the senseless killing of the wildlife they came across But it s an adventure story and it s entertaining from that aspect It left me wanting to know what happened later his afterword only accounted for 2 years I understand Jules Verne wrote a seuel to Wyss classic I may have to see how that goes
