A shipwreck; a deserted island; a horde of zombies; a single family fighting to survive.
The Robinsons are rebuilding their lives after surviving the recent zombie onslaught. They've rebuilt their treehouse, fixed the water supply, begun to farm again, and carry out dangerous scouting missions to sweep up the last of the zombies. Just when everything is going well they each catch a terrible illness. They're in a race against time to discover their illness's cause and its cure before it's too late.
The Robinsons are about to face their most dangerous enemy so far - an enemy they can't see.
The classic tale, inspired by Robinson Crusoe, written by Johann David Wyss, adapted by Perrin Briar, is an adrenaline-pumping adventure of zombie survival.
I received this book give an honest review.
With book four we go back and forth between island life and the lives of the Robinson's before they landed on the island. At first I was a bit confused when I started reading then bam I was in the middle of Liz's life before the island. I actually went back to make sure I didn't miss anything.
The Robinson's are celebrating Liz's birthday and have been rebuilding their home since the last zombie attack so everything has been pretty good. Then all of a sudden the family catches an illness and you have to wonder if it is the end for them or if there will be a cure. It goes to show you that you can never be too comfortable living on an island as anything could happen. There wasn't really any zombies in this book, it was more just about the illness and their memories of their previous life.
I am liking this short series and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants an adventure.
I do have a question and I am hoping that someone can clear this up for me. How do you get freshly baked bread on an island with no electricity or any wheat? I know that probably sounds crazy but it just bothers me as I don't have an answer to this and it is mentioned in the book about freshly baked bread.
