Island Of The Blue Dolphins

Satisfactory Essays
On a scale of 1 to 3, with 3 being the highest, I would rate, Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell a 3. One reason why I give this classic novel a 3, is because, unlike other novels based on true life ones, Scott O’Dell manages to captivate the readers. He captivates his readers because with the way he writes, you are able to transport yourself into the novel, imagining yourself on the adventure with Karana to get the teeth of the bull sea elephant, “Again the young bull’s flank was ripped deep, and again the force of the blow threw him backward into the water...The sound was like rocks crashing together” (O’Dell 83). Another reason why I give Island of the Blue Dolphins a 3, is because it showcases a strong female lead, Karana.
