REVIEW: Big Game by Dan Smith

 

With the President's life in peril, the stakes are high in Big Game

Kids loved the movie? Now track down the book

 

Based on the Samuel L Jackson blockbuster of the same name, Big Game is a thrill-a-minute adventure that follows the progress of 13-year-old Oskari as he is sent into the freezing wilderness of Finland. It’s all part of a coming-of-age ritual, a survival test that will mark his transition from boy to man, and Oskari has only a bow and arrow to help him in his quest for survival. But when the underachieving teenager chances upon an escape pod from a burning airliner, the story takes a chilling new twist as Oskari befriends a survivor from a terrorist attack – the President of the USA.

Big Game started out as a film script, but from it Dan Smith skilfully weaves a taut, fast-moving adventure story set against a spectacular Finnish backdrop. Packed with action, it’s a genuine thriller with an anti-hero at its heart that young readers will be willing on to victory at every twist and turn of the plot. Chicken House, age: 11+
