I read it and finished it, so it wasn't terrible, but it probably would have been better had I read it as perhaps a pre-teen. The storyline is a little too straightforward and the author has the main characters make obviously bad choices so that there is something substantial to write about. Either that, or they are right there at just the right time to protect the island they are stranded on from certain doom. In general, there are points (many) to wonder about, certain facts that make you think "Come on!", and general questions that should have been answered at least within the first book that were left just stamped in and dangling since the first page as well as random passages slapped into the book that you read and think- "Wow, that could have been handled better". Those points aside, the idea is a good one, the descriptions are fantastic- you can pretty much recreate it in your head and they aren't over-detailed, and the characters within are very diverse/fresh. In general, if it had been just tidied up a little more, had a couple of the sections better formed, it would have been more than just a good read.
