    Jungle

    I'm not usually into reading, but once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down, and finished it on the same night I started. It was filled with adventure, and was a great book.

    Riveting and exciting

    this book was wonderful! Yossi, who's incredible story was featured on I Shouldn't be Alive of the Discovery Channel, proved his will to survive and devotion to his family. Highly recomended.

    True life adventure story

    This book has had a very positive effect on me & I expect most who read it. It had me so curious to find out what happened, I found it hard to put down. Mr Ghinsberg, through his survival experience, explores a wide variety of human situations & emotions & though he was young at the time, displays insight far beyond his years. Highly recommended.

    true survival story

    I recommend this book to anybody who enjoys adventure, though indeed Yossi Ghinsberg was an ordinary young man when he experienced this ordeal. His honesty is refreshing & I found it difficult to stop reading once I'd started. Riveting stuff!

    Tremendous tale of human endurance

    Apart from being a tremendous tale of human endurance by a seemingly average male, Yossi's writing style allows the reader to climb into his skin and feel it all. I couldn't put Jungle down once I started. One of the best true stories I have ever read.

    inspirational true story

    I could not put this book down once I started! Of course the fact that it's all true makes it even more fascinating. The author's courage & will to survive I found intriguing & he writes in a very personal & readable manner. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    Amazing Adventure

    This is one of the most honest & fascinating accounts of real life adventure I've read. Though it's easy to read, the writer also shares deep insights into human nature that I could certainly relate to. I felt I was transported into the very Amazon jungle where the ordeal took place. I have no hesitation in recommending this book - it's stayed with me for a long time afterwards.

    Riveting Survival Story

    This enthralling story had me turning the pages far into the night ¿ how would Yossi survive in the Amazon jungle now that he was alone? A spellbinding tale all the more remarkable because it is true ¿ Yossi¿s indomitable spirit & will to survive against huge odds left me in awe of this amazing man. A truly inspirational read!

    life changing page turner

    Though simply written this book grips you from its first chapter and doesn¿t let go until the last page. I had to stay up all night since it was impossible to put it down. I was even worrying - would the author live to tell? But once I was done with the book it kept growing on me - there are great life changing messages in this story of losing all and finding self. I highly recommend it.
