Wilds of the Wolf

Info from the publisher

Steve Backshall, Wilds of the Wolf

Orion. ISBN: 9781444004403

Saker and Sinter escape by the skin of their teeth when their plan to sabotage a billionaire businessman plundering 'black gold' (natural oil and gas) and hunting wolves in the remote Yamal peninsula in North West Siberia goes disastrously wrong. But they escape one kind of peril only to find themselves in an even more terrifying situation. Separated by blizzards and avalanches, lost in a breathtakingly beautiful but deadly frozen Arctic wilderness, suffering from frostbite and hunger, listening to the wolves howl and the packs draw closer, it seems that this time they cannot possibly live to tell their tale...

The Wilds of the wolf was quite good. It has more than enough action and adventure. I felt that the story went quite quickly. It was kind of sad to be honest. I enjoyed like book would recommend this book to people that like action.

This book is all about adventure, wolves and freedom. As I read this book I felt as if I was there myself. It is a sad and happy book. If you are into wolves you will love this book. I loved this book so I would recommend this book to anyone!!!

This is a book which gives you a sense of adventure and freedom. As I read this, I could almost hear the howling of the wolf, I pictured all the images of the forest in my mind and when there was an adrenelin in the story, my pulse rate went up and a tingling sensation shot through me. At the end I cried as it was very emotional, I would recommend this book to readers of all ages!

I didn't enjoy reading this book very much. From the start I thought it was going to be incredibly dull and I was right. I had to make myself read it as I just couldn't get into the story. Some parts of the story were alright but not good enough to earn a higher mark. So far it's the worst book shortlisted I've read. I would not recommend it.

I didn't really like this very much at all. I could not get myself into the story and had to make myself read it. The characters are not very realistic or emotional. The fight/climax scenes were very boring and had no excitment in them, they were very anti-climactic. Overall I would not recommend this book and would say that it is probably the worst book to have been shortlisted here.

I loved this book because it had assassins, adventure and suspense as well caring people. It was the best book that I have read in months. I believe this book should win the NIBA. Thank you for writing this book, Steve Backshall.

I am surprised about this book, I thought I would hate it but it wasn't too bad. I thought it was going to be a documentary kind of thing. No, it wasn't. There are things to be worked on but I'm glad it wasn't an encyclopedia about wolves.

I didn't really like this book at all. I could not get into it. From the very beginning, I found it boring. It did not grab my attention so I wouldn't really recommend it.

 

James, Sacred Heart College, Omagh  1 out of 10

 

I did not like this book at all. I had no interest in it. I would probably not recommend it.

Wilds of the Wolf was absolutely amazing. There are no other words for it.

This book was much better than I thought it was going to be. When I first saw the title 'Wilds of the Wolf' I thought it was going to be a lame nature book (boy was I wrong). It was a thrilling book that I really enjoyed. It is a book filled with adventure and passion and my favourite bit was when Saker lived rough with Yantar in the wilds of the Arctic sabotaging hunters traps and the like. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend it to whoever can read!

this was the first book I read. I loved it. I really liked the story-line of the book and where the book was set.

I thought this was fantastic!
