The book: ‘Castaways’ by Brian Keene was first published by Leisure Books in 2009 and is available on Kindle and Nook. The story: Contestants on a ‘Survivor’-like reality TV show are stranded on a deserted island during a storm. The review: ‘Castaways’ is a survival horror novel about men and women facing grave danger when they encounter a primitive tribe of bipedal creatures that feel threatened by the human interlopers.
Keene effectively introduces a varied cast of characters vying for the one million dollar prize and nimbly manages the character arcs, particularly when they're scattered by the storm and attacked by island creatures. The relationship between unemployed college grad Becka and video store owner Jerry is the heart of the story, but foul-mouthed auto mechanic Troy steals scenes with his abrasive personality and profanity-laced dialogue.
While ‘Castaways’ is about the fortunes of the contestants, Keene doesn’t ignore his monsters’ motivations. The climactic action scenes are breathless with brutal killings and heroic sacrifices but inlaid with enough emotion to make it all matter.
Lionel Ray GreenHuntsville Books ExaminerLionel Ray Green is a published horror writer, award-winning newspaper journalist, and a U.S. The Hunger Games movie has pretty much been the only thing we could think about since we finished the first book. I don’t watch as many movies as I used to, but I still enjoy a good survival movie from time to time. This is not the first version of this movie, but it’s certainly one of the more popular versions. This movie makes you think about what it means to survive alone, and sheds light on just how irrational the solo survival story truly is. Our next survival movie, The Book of Eli is thoroughly entertaining, if a bit dark at times.
A fascinating story, I don’t want to say too much more to avoid giving away the plot. A classic we all know and love, the Swiss Family Robinson is a movie about a family that is marooned on an island and settle in for the long haul. Obviously these survival movies are fiction (Except for Into the Wild) and are quite stylized. But what was most eye-opening and frightening, is that this was originally aired by ABC on prime time Sunday night airing. The Swiss Family Robinson is a great read with the story telling how they get around mundane things not just fighting off the pirates loved this story since I was young, guess it was my first survival story. The natives are savage but display enough intelligence to know the future fate of their tribe could be linked to the humans. With Gwen Stefani as the lead singer, No Doubt became one of the most critically acclaimed ska bands world-wide. We’re so excited to see Katniss in her opening ceremony fire outfit, kicking butt with her bow and arrow, making out with Josh Hutcherson… But would you actually be able to survive the Hunger Games a la Katniss and Peeta?

Very quickly, certain skills take on greater importance in the woods as opposed to the city. The best manual, EVER, are the Boy Scout manual from the 1960’s, and the Boy Scout Field Book prior to 1976 (after that, they became WAY too PC!). Urgent."Wanting to survive whatever imminent attack was coming, we of course immediately opened the box. The two older brothers disagree over how to deal with the influx of refugees–how are they going to feed these people ? Inside the box was an assortment of products and promotional items from the upcoming Godzilla movie, representing part of the vast roster of licensees who have created product inspired by the film.We photographed the box and its contents to share the fun with our readers. A few things I want to mention first: I stayed away from the really over-the-top movies like 2012 or The Day After Tomorrow. I also avoided movies about aliens (like Independence Day) and Zombies (like Dawn Of The Dead).
For the same reason, I also didn’t include any documentaries (although many of these movies are based on true stories).
