The Iceberg Hermit

Author: Arthur Roth
Reviewer's Age: Grade 7

In the novel The Iceberg Hermit Arthur Roth writes about never loosing hope by describing a boy who is forced to survive on an iceberg with little supplies and no shelter. Although some people label this book as being an "acquired taste", it generally appeals to most people because there is so much to learn about life and what it has to teach. The main characters are always being dismayed to the extent that even though there might be someone who could help them the people turn their backs and make no effort at all. But most amazing is no matter how times they get turned down they still manage to succeed. Throughout this book you learn about so many instances where the characters were forced to improvise with essentials of living, which others would have given up on. I recommend you should read this for an adventure.
