Rating: 3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5).

This started as a promising survival story but morphed into a rather silly woo-woo mind-bender towards the end. A modern man crash lands in the middle of the jungle and has to survive on his wits… and a chunk of marijuana. But I lost interest in the main character when he started believing in a jungle boogieman… then he actually wanted to BE a jungle boogieman.

There’s quite a bit of gore, lots of violence, implied sex but nothing graphic. Luke Daniels does his usual spectacular narration, but I felt it was a little wasted on this one.

The point of the book is that, given extenuating circumstances, any man can become an animal. Well, we didn’t really need to go to the Amazon to see that, did we?
