Two people stranded on an island struggle to survive—and slowly fall in love—in the runaway New York Times bestseller from the author of the forthcoming novel COVET. Anna Emerson is a thirty-year-old English teacher desperately in need of adventure. Worn down by the cold Chicago winters and a relationship that’s going nowhere, she jumps at the chance to spend the summer on a tropical island tutoring sixteen-year-old T.J. T.J. Callahan has no desire to go anywhere. His cancer is in remission and he wants to get back to his normal life. But his parents are insisting he spend the summer in the Maldives catching up on all the school he missed last year. Anna and T.J. board a private plane headed to the Callahan’s summer home, and as they fly over the Maldives’ twelve hundred islands, the unthinkable happens. Their plane crashes in shark-infested waters. They make it to shore, but soon discover that they’re stranded on an uninhabited island. At first, their only thought is survival. But as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.’s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.

I haven’t read any M/F in years, but I was willing to make an exception for this book. I just love the stranded on a deserted island trope.We also get a big part of the ‘after’. What happens when they return to civilization.. And there is where this book really annoyed me. There is this big break u...

***Note: this review assumes that you've read the book.*** One-sentence summary: A problematic, sweet, not terribly lyrical (and minimally researched) romance novel that is something you gobble up mostly because of the upbeat main characters and the survival story. I was duped! A few of my best ...

3.0 On the Island
Age is REALLY just a number when your a thirty-year-old woman stuck on an uninhabited island with a sixteen-year-old boy. Don't worry, it's not what you think, there's no physical contact between the two until he is of age. I couldn't decided whether or not to give this book 3 stars or 4, because th...

2.5 On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves
Welcome people. Let's take a trip shall we? We'll be crashing into the ocean on our way to the Maldives. From here on we'll spend time with Anna and T.J., two of the stupidets people you'll ever meet. She's more than ten years older than him, meant to be his teacher over the summer. Unfortunately, t...

4.0 L'isola dell'amore proibito
3.5 stelle per un testo molto scorrevole che ho letteralmente divorato in pochissime ore. L'ho adorato dalla prima all'ultima pagina, un cast away moderno, con minori attenzioni alla sopravvivenza, ma comunque ben descritte. Stupenda la storia d'amore che nasce tra questi due naufraghi, cui l'unico ...
