Publisher's Summary

It was supposed to be a vacation - and a chance to get to know one another better. But when a massive storm sets in without warning, four kids are shipwrecked alone on a rocky, jungle island in the middle of the South Pacific. No adults. No instructions. Nobody to rely on but themselves. Can they make it home alive? A week ago, the biggest challenge Vanessa, Buzz, Carter, and Jane had was learning to live as a new, blended family. Now the four siblings must find a way to work together if they're going to make it off the island. But first they've got to learn to survive one another.

This is the first of three exciting adventures from multi-Emmy Award winning host of Survivor, Jeff Probst and New York Times best-selling Chris Tebbetts!

There should have been a no star choice

What would have made Stranded better?

An adequate story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jeff Probst and Chris Tebbetts again?

No. A very choppy narration. This just couldn't be saved....

Would you be willing to try another one of Charles Carroll’s performances?

Don't think so...there is so much out there. This is part one...I will leave it at that.

What character would you cut from Stranded?

I couldn't tell them apart.

Any additional comments?

I love this sort of story. Survival, I had hoped for some hints...kids working together.

disappointing

I did not love this book. I feel it is a poorly thought out story over all. It's superficial dialogue and inability to give depth to the characters makes it a struggle to listen to in itself but then the story ends on a hiccup...meaning there is no ending. An event happens which should lead into another turn in the story but instead the book ends. The "epilogue" is even hastily barfed up at the end. Maybe there was a deadline so that's all that could be written or maybe he just got lazy and/or bored. Disappointing, too say the least. :(

Not a whole story; no resolution

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, have it be an actual novel with an ending.

Could you see Stranded being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, it has no ending.

Any additional comments?

I don't remember why I bought this book for kids in audiobook. Probably it was priced really low, and as a Survivor fan, I thought it would be a fun read. This is the first of three books in a series, and sort of the first in six because the kids get shipwrecked a second time. What I didn't know is that the authors broke up one book into three parts.

I HATE being forced to buy more books just to reach a resolution of one story. There are a number of series I have never finished reading because I was so irritated that the author left me hanging. And I've never bought more books by those authors either. This is going to be another one of them. I won't know how the characters survive until they are rescued, but I can live with it. The authors should have been more considerate of their readers.

a ya book overwhelmingly horrible narration

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one who has to listen to every sentence, regardless of content end a rising phrase. I am not sure how to state this, but list to one minute and you will know what I mean.

What was most disappointing about Jeff Probst and Chris Tebbetts ’s story?

The narration

What didn’t you like about Charles Carroll’s performance?

phrasing was repetitious and had no relation to the content

What character would you cut from Stranded?

the narrator

Any additional comments?

nope

BEWARE! This is not a complete book! part 1/3

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I am not opposed to cliffhanger endings in order to get you to the next book, but there needs to be closure in a book before it is a cliffhanger and not just ending a book so you have to buy the next one. Sadly there is no ending in this book. It feels like a money grab to me and I will not purchase books 2 or 3 out of principle.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

If all 3 "books" were included so it was a complete story.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Charles Carroll?

Scott Brick...always Scott Brick

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The ending of the "book" caused anger because it just stopped.

Leaves you high n dry

I liked The tension that the story produced. It is believable. What I didn't like was the cliffhanger! I'll have to get the next book I guess.

This shouldn't be a series!

Would you try another book from Jeff Probst and Chris Tebbetts and/or Charles Carroll?

Maybe, but only if the price is right. This is the first book in a series of 3, but it's less than 3 hours of listening! The three books should be combined into one, at least for the price.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jane. She has the most sense of any of them.

What does Charles Carroll bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Not sure.

Could you see Stranded being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Maybe a movie if it includes all 3 books in the series. There isn't enough material for a TV series.

Any additional comments?

Lower the price of the next two books. They shouldn't cost as much as a book with 8 or more hours of listening! All three books just barely add up to that.

only part of the story.

Only part of the story. You have to buy 2 more books. Book 1 is not complete like the books of a series. It's just the first third of the story. Other than that, it is ingesting and pretty well done.
