Nancy
The Field The Field was very suspenseful. I wanted to keep reading to find out how Daniel and his friend was going to escape. Some parts in the beginning were funny. The majority of the book made me cry. It was a very intense book. I especially liked the book because I know Ian personally. I am familiar with all the places he mentions in the book. I would highly recommend "The Field" to teenage boys. Read more
