Jack and the Wild Life is a book where Jack and his parents, Richard and Claire Berenson, have thought up another get-rich quick scheme. Now Jack is alone in Africa, fighting a Honey Badger for a stuffed monkey, and steering clear of a hormonal elephant. All while trying to survive on limited resources.


Jack and the Wild Life was an OK book. It started way too late, and wasn't all that interesting when it got to the action part. I wanted to put the book away. I would have put the action closer to the start, not diving in but taking out the useless information and overly drawn out character development.
