The Island By Ben McPherson

The Island By Ben McPherson


A shocking act of violence…
It should have been the safest place on earth. A summer camp for teens, on a beautiful island off the coast of Oslo. But what started out as a haven becomes hell on earth as two men start shooting.

A family torn apart…
With Norway in shock, the families gather, desperately hoping their children have survived. Some have their prayers answered. Some must confront their worst nightmare. But for one family, this is just the beginning…

A daughter gone missing…
Cal and Elsa’s daughter Licia was on the island that day. But the police can find no trace of her – dead or alive. Stuck in limbo, Cal and Elsa delve into their daughter’s life. The secrets they uncover are shocking. But they still don’t know – did Licia survive the shooting? Or is she gone forever?

My Thoughts:

I thought this was going to be like some of the other books I have read called The Island but it was strangely different, a husband and wife who have three kids, they hear there has been an explosion in town and that the Summer camp where their kids are has had gunman invade it, one of his daughters was on that island but where is she now? Will the family find the answers they are looking for? It was a good plot line but for me it was a bit too slow, I felt as though the story was not really going anywhere and I didn’t feel I connected with any of the characters, but that is my opinions I am sure other people will like it. There were bits of the book that I found good though.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
