Read full description of the books Jaguar:HOOK
The hook that kind of brought me in was that Jake’s father forced him to live in a retirement home in Poughkeepsie, while the father travels with his friend Bill. Bill had set up a wildlife preserve for jaguars. This sounded kind of interesting to me so I decided to read it. The father was very untruthful he always said he would be gone this long and ended up being a lot longer than expected.
When Jacob Lansa joined his father in Brazil, his biggest worry was whether Doc (Jacobs’s dad) would let him stay in Brazil or send him back to Poughkeepsie. His father’s expedition to create a jaguar preserve is filled with violence. A massive explosion destroys their boat and Jake is attacked before their journey even starts. There journey will be filled with even more danger up the river.
Some strengths of this book were like surprises and unexpected things I also really liked that. There is also a lot of action and adventure. Bravery is also a pretty big part in this book so bravery was a strength. I think this book can open the minds of people and make them feel like they are really there. Another strength was all of the clues came together. This book also gave good life lessons like be honesty to yourself and others.
I loved this book it was such a good book like me I like adventure and unexpected things. But I can see how some people wouldn’t like it. I think that older people wouldn’t find this book very intriguing older people seem to like more calm books. But teens I feel like they would really enjoy it because it is filled with action and adventure teens like that stuff. Older people might not like surprises or adventure and action.
Overall this book was pretty clean I would recommend maybe 10 and up. This book has mild language. But overall this book is clean and I think anyone 10 and up could read this. I think the only reason someone shouldn’t read this book is if they don’t like action and adventure.
I would recommend this book to anyone that likes action and adventure. This book is clean and is a very good read. But if you don’t like action and adventure I would recommend not reading this. I recommend this book for people 10 and up. I really think you should read this book I really enjoyed it.
