Wild boy by Rob Lloyd Jones was a perfect mix of action and adventure. I loved it from the very first sentence. Wild boy reminded me of a mix of Indiana Jones and Sherlock Holmes. I also loved the setting in Victorian London and how the author described it in great detail. Another thing that I liked about this book was that the author did an excellent job of developing the characters so that I felt sorry for Wild Boy and his predictement. If you like Sherlock Holmes on a level that's easier to understand, than you'll realy enjoy this book. I recommend Wild Boy for people 10 and up.
