Review by

This is the story of a family who are flying across the desert in a small airplane. The airplane crashes and the husband starts to walk through the desert to find help. I enjoyed this story, though it was a bit predictable and there wasn't too much excitement. But it's a nice simple story.

I wsa fascinated by the title of this book. One day a plane acccident happend and plane fell on the dessert. No one knows this accident so father decided to walk to find people. But the deseert was too hard to walk and he became weak. Some fisherman finded him and took hin to the hospital. He sleeped 3 days while his family waited help. I like this story so-so.

I learnt that it is important not to give up and to believe family , from this story. I want to keep that mind forever. I like this story. When Mr. Bardis and other people were looking for his family, I'was excited.

Review by

One parents and a son was in the plane. The plane was flying above the big desert. But, some times later, a naked man was walking to the east in the desert. This is very tensional story. However, it may be difficult for us to image the situation in the latter.
