Series Review: Graphic Survival Stories
"Reluctant readers and fans of survival and adventure stories will eat this series up. With many connections to more in-depth books about some of these survival tales, this series would be a wonderful addition to most collections."
—Library Media Connection

Series Review: Graphic Survival Stories
"...the high-impact stories will be of interest to reluctant readers."

Series Review: Graphic Survival Stories
"...While these are survival stories, and the outcome therefore isn't in doubt, the details are gruesome enough to attract readers who enjoy the extreme—for example, many of the protagonists in the comic-book-style tales satisfy their need for water by drinking fresh animal blood. The only instance of cannibalism (in Sea) is given a much lighter touch. More visceral thrills than how-to references, these grisly depictions of harrowing experiences will entertain."
