      Comments about Gold of the Gods:

      I bought this book for my active 12 year old son who has worked hard to improve his reading skills and now enjoys a good read. However, after reading another Bear Grylls book and enjoying it he wanted to try this one. We were both disappointed when after two chapters his comment was 'it just didn't grab me' he stopped reading it. Disappointing.
