    One thought on “The Darwin Expedition”

    1. My opinion about Diane Tullson’s book The Darwin Expedition is balanced. It is about a spunky 16 teen year old boy named Liam and his older (cousin/brother) Tej. One day the boys were up on a mountain skiing but as they were on their way home Tej’s truck slides off the rainy road and rolls down the side of the mountain. Now stranded Liam and Tej (once hated each other) have to rely on the other to survive the mials of thick forest. Through the book the boys take on many obstacles to try to s [...]

    2. This was a really good book, one that I think young men would really enjoy but that is also an interesting read for girls too. The story is about two friends on their way snowboarding when they crash off the road, a road which is a logging road and is hardly used at that time of year. So they quickly have to find a way to survive the forest and get to civilization. There are many intriguing things that happen to them, the story felt much longer than just a hundred pages, and was all in all a fun [...]

    3. I enjoyed this book. It was very action packed. I have to say that this book would probably not be good for a girl to read. They would most likely not enjoy it. But, guys of any ages would like this book. Because it is very suspenseful and it is one of those books that you would like to see how you would handle yourself in that certain situation.

    4. Adventure and survival are what I love to read the most, however, this book didn’t fulfill what I wanted out of it. Picking it up off of the shelf was probably a good move because it had great content. Sadly, the book was too short. I wanted a little more adventure and peril in this story. The two high schoolers in the book, Tej and Liam, are going on an adventure to snowboard down a beautiful mountain. Due to the traffic on the main highway, they decided to take a shortcut. The shortcut seem [...]

    6. The Darwin Expedition was pretty good on my standards. It's about two guys that are driving and crash into the middle of a forest. They then have to survive until they can get back to the road where someone can help them. In most books you can predict the ending easily, but in The Darwin Expedition my prediction was completely wrong. The ending was exciting because I expected one of those same-old happy endings but got something much better. To me it was a very good book because it had a lot of [...]

    7. I thought the book was not bad but not good either. In the book, “The Darwin Expedition”, Two boys get lost in a forest and are chased by a bear throughout the story. The author makes this completely awesome sounding idea, and makes it just about as interesting as your average book. There is any huge plot twist. The only decently interesting or funny thing about this book is that the main characters’ situation just gets worse and worse. I would recommend this book to beginning readers or p [...]

    8. The story is about that these two kids went to go snow boarding and went through the woods for a short cut to get to the snow boarding faster. But on the way there they got lost and then going through the woods a bear spotted them in the woods and then they were running trying to find a way out of the woods to get rid of that bear. I liked the part when they were getting chased by a bear because it added more action to the story and want to know what is going to happen next in the story. I like [...]

    9. A quick and exciting read about two boys' experience in the wilderness after sliding off a logging road. Lost, they attempt to find their way back to the highway only to discover they are being tracked by a grizzly bear. A fast-paced story with two developed and complex characters.

    10. The Darwin Expedition by Diane Tullson is a book about two people that are going snowboarding and their wheels slip on the icy back road. They have to survive and find their way back to the highway. But they will be stalked by bears. What will they do and when will they make it out?

    11. This book is great for classes with many boys. The survival aspects appeal to many of our guys around here. It is an excellent HI-LO book. It probably won't win any literary awards, but all the kiddos who start it will finish it--which matters way more to me.

    12. Poorly written with no plot or character development. There is no possible way a reader can feel any empathy for these characters.

    13. Two teens heading off on a road trip have a car accident on a lonely road, and have more of a wilderness experience than they had bargained for.
