I don't really like this book because as I read it, I didn't feel interested. It reminded me of the movie, Tarzan. At last, the man died because a hawk flew and ate part of his body. After that, I think his family will go back to London and maybe, they will be happy.

I hated this book so much....;;
This book was about the family who thinks America has poisoned. But the circumstances that happens in this made me sick..

What a father! I just wonder why his wife follow him. I think it is written comically, so the ending was shocking for me.

I truly enjoyed the story until Fat Boy blows up and then everything is predictable. In this graded version, the end comes too fast too.
