THIS was the book that we all hid behind the stacks in the library reading in year 8, a little group of us, because of the scene where the guy masturbates on a hill or something. SO NAUGHTY OMG! It served three giggling 13-year-olds very well indeed ;) The rest of the book I did try to read once, but could never get into. I guess a guy's journey just wasn't that interesting to me back then, and I doubt I'll ever pick it up for another try.

1.I decided to read this book because my friend recommended it to me and said it was a good book 2.I found the setting of this book really interesting through out the story as it was set mostly on a farm and even though it was a globe of 6 billion people he always felt secluded and it was set as if it was only him in the world. 3."this World is just a sphere ready for exploring" I liked this quote because it relates to this book so well like as life is just a journey that we were chosen for. 4.T ...more

A short book about a boy's rite of passage to manhood. Contains lots of truths.

I can't believe this story isn't more highly rated on Goodreads.

It's a delightful story that's so well written. I liked the writing even more than the authors, Tommorow When The War Began, which is also very good.

The story follows that journey of a boy who must leave home and experience life. His task is to return home with seven stories from his journey.

I couldn't help compare this story with The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Both are great reads.

I'm just not sure I got much out of it...

You see; it's an emotional and spiritual journey into becoming an adult in the guise of a physical traipse through the landscape.

Eh; not my cup of tea.

This book was not really my style. Interestingly written story of a young man's journey to maturity. He must come home with seven stories that prove he has learned what it means to be a man. I'm not a fan of stories that you have to decipher to find the meaning, which is why this book isn't really my style, but it was a good tale.
Maggie
very very teenage fiction which is a disappointment for me as I enjoyed Marsden's War series as an adult. But this book is aimed at teenagers, so I cant be surprised

Read as a teenager growing up. I recommend for a growing teenage who is not really knowing what life is all about yet.
