This book is exciting story. A man was walking slowly in the desert. He didn't know where he is and who he is.He became the memory loss.
My best part is the last part. It is that he regained memory and the man from nowhere was back with his family.
I am sure this book makes you happy.

4. How long can you live without drinking and eating?
- I think I can live for 2 days. I do not want to imagine.
5. It was exciting story. I think I don't want to go to the desert because there is nothing. If I lost my way in desert, I think I cannot walk. It is very hot and it is very tired. They were in very bad condition but they did not give up so they could survive. It was very nice story.

People who was fallen out on the desert from plane. I am afraid of getting on plane. Because of accident like this. I learned how scary desert and plane are. This is impressive story. I am happy a man from nowhere came back to his family.

When I started this book , I had a lot of questions and it provides that keep going to read. Good start I think. There are a lot of actions that provide curiosity. Pictures help to understand meaning of storyline. I loved that book.
