This book is hitting a lot of the themes for today: having Friday as a character, a C in the title for Crusoe, and an all around great book to read about a cast away.

If you are looking for a beach read this will be perfect. Clarke sets the mood quickly as you feel Erin's desperation to find out what has happened to her sister, Lori. Regrets and secrets follow every character as the truth unravels. With hints of 'Lost' and 'Castaway' this is a quick read mystery.

Sophie and Barry find themselves stuck on an island. They don‘t necessarily get a long at first but quickly realise that they need each other for survival.

I felt like I was on an island with the characters while reading this book. There were glimpses of the present day throughout it and I kept on thinking of how it will end…

I read this book few years ago when I was in school. It is a great book it's mystery kept me hooked. This book tells you to be in the present and enjoy your life as it passes. It also shows a connect between animals and humans. The old man which the author meet on the island was lost due to shipcrash but he was save. He stayed on the island since then, he got friendly with the animals and stayed with them. I just love reading books of the author.

This looks really interesting. But also check out The Blue Tattoo for a non-fiction account of someone living in a white society with a tattoo on her face. It takes place in the 1800's before tattoos were considered acceptable. Olive Oatman was her name, though I consider the story quite sad.

I adored this book! The author is a wordsmith! It felt like the story flowed as easy as waves upon the shore. I literally could have been in a hammock beneath a coconut grove while reading this. A story of 2 ppl from completely different worlds, end up deserted together on an unknown Island. The words were beautiful, and the story had me. The ending was perfect. I could not love it more. A perfect summer read.

Ok so still ADORING this book, BUT I have a bone to pick. These 2 have been living off of bananas for a year now, and still no mention of constipation or bloating? Come now 🤪

Curiouser_and_curiouser If you Google "Banana Girl" you will see that this woman actually only eats bananas for long periods of time, 30 a day from memory. She looks amazing! I don't think bananas could possibly constipate anyone, but I'm sure a lot of other more unnatural foods would most likely be the culprit. Bananas are full of fiber and energy. 1y
MynameisSnow @Curiouser_and_curiouser wow yeah she does look amazing. I guess it‘s unique to individuals then because I LOVE bananas but if I have more than 1 a day, I pay for it dearly. Doc told me they can be tricky in digestion when you eat too many of them. Then again I guess it‘s probable that they body gets used to what it‘s given. I do know that they are fullllll of nutrients.

MynameisSnow @Curiouser_and_curiouser what would be your 1 food pick if you had 1 food to live off of for the rest of your life? Mine would be almonds 1y
Curiouser_and_curiouser @MynameisSnow you know, I probably would say bananas. They are my go to, esp when I'm avoiding bread/pasta/rice type foods. Love bananas. I buy kilos every week & they go fast in my house where we promote fresh food over packaged. My kids love them too. I could easily eat 5-6 a day if I'm avoiding white carbs. My daughter blends them with frozen berries & makes her own healthy "ice cream". Very versatile & yummo! 1y
Curiouser_and_curiouser @MynameisSnow We love almonds though, we make our own almond milk, it was my daughters first milk aside from breast milk. And our delicious flour free chocolate chia cake has lots almonds also. It's great to rely on if you choose not to eat flour based products :) Stay safe and healthy, esp in this current time. 1y

Not too far into this book yet, but I‘m immediately gripped. Eek at the Oceanic White Tip Shark scene!!!! In love with the way this story is narrated, sort of like Stranger Than Fiction style. Im in love with the character set up. I‘m in it, be back with you when it‘s finished for final thoughts ❤️
