Michael Morpurgo is an excellent author, if you've never come across him before, and this book is no exception.

'Kensuke's Kingdom' is basically a story about a boy getting stranded on a desert island. But it's beautifully done, from the cultural differences between the main characters to the ways in which their experiences subtly alter their personalities and the way they look at life.

This is an excellent read, and I highly recommend it, to anyone - regardless of what type of books they would normally read.
