Rebecca's Redemption (Call to the Jungle Book 3) - Lee Carver

REBECCA’S REDEMPTION by Lee Carver

Have enjoyed the other books in this series although they are also stand alone books, love the locations and so much more.

Three things I like about a book: has a bit of romance, I have to learn something new and I have to be taken away. This book provides all 3!

This one starts out with Rebecca and she's arriving in the jungle to help as a missionary at the hospital center.

Dr. Ed is the main doctor when she arrives and he has two girls that live nearby. There are other nurses and one is hoping the doctor will pay attention to her now that his wife has been gone over a year.

Rebecca just does what she's told and tries to stay out of the nurses way, she wants no conflict.

What I liked about this book was it took me away from the very first page on the plane just about to land and I felt like it was me sitting there as I've experienced small plane travel.

Very descriptive details of the scenery and all the medical things done to patients. Like how they all get along so smooth. Especially liked how they get the things they need and the trips to other areas to enjoy themselves.

Love the books the children get and was so surprised when Rebecca was given a gift. Learned so much about the fauna and nature, animals and procedures.

Conflict does occur when an agency arrives to investigate and you wonder if they will shut the hospital down...

Loved hearing of the scriptures and how that helps Rebecca and Dr. Ed open up to each other about their pasts.

Thought this was the best out of the series but all are very good and so detailed and descriptive.

I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review

The Jungle Book (Disney The Jungle Book) - Walt Disney Company

 

Good book. A nice, simple summary of the film adaptation. Good illustrations. A bit wordy, but still easy to understand.

Weird art edition of Kipling's animal stories
The Jungle Book: Manga Classics - cr Crystal S. Chan,Rudyard Kipling,julien choy

Disclaimer: reviewing an eARC edition for NetGalley

 

The art style of this edition totally didn't work for me, but if you enjoy it, the book does a good job summarizing a bunch of Rudyard Kipling's animal-oriented stories. Unlike many of the other Manga Classics series, rather than a pretty shoujo style, the art is more comedic and cartoony. Which could have been good, as there aren't romantic heroes in any of the stories to flatter, but something about the ways the eyes were drawn in particular just rubbed me the wrong way. Like, they look crazy, not funny. It's kind of a weird edition, because I wouldn't necessarily hand it to a little kid - the language and particularly the poems/songs are too challenging. But the art is definitely more kid-oriented. In this case, I'd say just read the originals for the full experience.

Manga Classics: The Jungle Book
The Jungle Book: Manga Classics - Kipling,Crystal S. Chan

I've read most of the other Manga classics, and they were always nice, so even though I had only seen the Disney movie with the same name, I wanted to read this version of the Jungle book.

I had some problems at first to get into the short story collection, probably since I was unaware that the original stories were quite different from the movie, and did not seem to follow in a chronological order. One of the stories even takes place in icy seas so I didn't associate that with jungle either. But once I settled for this I was glad for it. The way some of the original prose was kept in the manga was great.

Also, most importantly, it made me curious towards The Jungle Book, even though I previously read some of Rudyard Kipling's work in a Little Black Classic and was slightly disappointed with it.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
