Good book!

Review by Jacob C.

Like action? You will like this book!! I don't think I could have done what Gustave did, but maybe I could if it was for my friends or family. You won't be sorry if you read this book!

Review by RLSon

VERY GOOD BOOK! Its a very good adventure and a bit "scary" so I really recommend this book for people who are not scared of war and that type of stuff.
