The Only Ones is engaging and captivating. It is a book about a boy on an unusual journey, full of new discoveries, tough problems to solve with fascinating solutions. The story is always moving, there are surprises, change of pace, and a Mystery that keeps the tale of a young, naive but clever boy (Martin Maple) on course for a remarkable ending. The characters that Martin ultimately meets on his way were diverse, engaged in a unusual situations, and are the only ones in a world without adults. The story has multiple layers with a mysterious quest to build a machine (that seems to be the primary goal), a interweaving of literary experience that Martin has obtained while living alone on an island in the beginning and conflicting interrelations that are difficult to resolve. This was a hard book to put down and probably deserves to be read more than once. I read it in two sittings and certainly hope there will be a sequel. I recommend it highly and expect it to be a favorite for anyone older that 10.
