    A "What's Going On?" Kinda Read

    Don't you hate it when your ship goes off course straight into a storm thus sinking leaving you stranded on an uncharted island? No, what if the island is populated with man-eating fauna? Total bummer.

    X Isle was right in the middle for me. Everything seemed a little familiar. The best part of the book was the captain character, but even then I felt like I've met the guy before several times on many different movies. So it just left me a little indifferent about the book.

    The main aspect that kept me going was the 'what is going on' factor. I wanted to know what was up with the island. The resolution wasn't mind blowing but it was mildly interesting. It may have worked better as a longer novel or maybe a movie.
