Summary

Fred awoke to find that a snake was watching him and that there was an aeroplane in the trees. It was on fire. Being on fire was a quality it shared with much of the surrounding jungle.
After crashing hundreds of miles from civilisation in the Amazon rainforest, Fred, Con, Lila and Max are utterly alone and in grave danger. They have no food, no water and no chance of being rescued. But they are alive, and they have hope.
As they negotiate the wild jungle, they begin to find signs that something - someone - has been there before them. Could there possibly be a way out after all?

Fantastic book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Wonderful story and brilliantly executed by the narrator

What did you like best about this story?

The author has captured the emotional ebbs and flows of the children so well, very plausible for the ages they are. Great sense of adventure, and the relationship with the Explorer is so heart warming.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

As the Explorer rescued the children as one of their number needed particular help (don't want to spoil!).

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

We listen on the school run, in stages, which we prefer. I don't think all in one sitting is a good idea. We were excited to listen to the next instalment on each journey.

Any additional comments?

I think this is a wonderful read for adults too. My son caught me weeping at the end bit, so engaged was I!! The narration, and characterisations he produced, were superb. My son now want a hard copy of the book too, he loved it so much.
