    1. I really enjoyed this retelling! But it got a bit slow toward the end so that why I have it a 3.5-4 stars

    2. Marooned in an empty, devastated world.Cade thought he was alone. His parents had prepared him to live in a world ravaged by a pandemic. He was an uncivilized young man living in the wild. He imagined that only a few survivors remained - until the day Dara wandered into his territory while on a camping trip with her boyfriend and shattered the realm of everything he thought he knew.What I loved best about this story is how authentic it felt. While there was an undercurrent of attraction between [...]

    3. Wild is an upcoming novel by Alex Mallory, a pen name for Saundra Mitchell. The book is a retelling of the classic Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Retellings can be done very well or fail miserably. A good author pays attention to the original themes of the source book and treats the material with respect. Alex Mallory has done just that with Wild. This is a brilliant retelling.Cade has lived in the forest for most of his life. When he was thirteen he buried his Father, and his mothe [...]

    4. thedailyprophecy/2Words to describe this book? Horrible. Disgusting. Terrible. Tagline? A failed attempt for a Tarzan retelling.You guys, I’m not even sure where I need to get started. This book made me roll my eyes, grind my teeth and there were several times where I wanted to throw it out of the window. I only finished it, because it’s a review copy and I put more effort in those. I feel so stupid, because I could have saved myself an hour filled with frustration and stupid characters that [...]

    5. For a full and edited review go to:Blame it on the Book I was excited for Wild, It was even my Waiting on Wednesday one week. I’ve read a few reviews and they were mixed, also I was worried Cade would be portrayed as an idiot. Even though I was excited I was skeptical and after the first few pages I relaxed. It was everything I could ask for.Cade had lived in the forest, at first he was with his parents until they both passed away and now for “3 Summers” he had been living in solitude. He [...]

    6. "His life among these fierce apes had been happy; for his recollection held no other life, nor did he know that there existed within the universe aught else than his little forest and the wild jungle animals with which he was familiar."- Tarzan of the ApesDNF at 34%, because there's only so much stupid I can take in one day.Setting:Daniel Boone National Forest and Makwa, Kentucky; 2014Coverly Love?:Yes; I admit there is something intriguing about it.Plot:Cade has lived in the forest his entire l [...]

    7. Initially I have it 2.5 stars because (1) extremely slow pacing(2) not that likable MC (Dara)(3) irrelevant scenes of Dara's high school life and also her interactions with her boyfriend Josh were such a bore. (4) very descriptive writing. The only person I really liked/ cared for was Cade, the guy who grew up in the woods. I loved the purity he had and even after moving to the city, he never let go of his innocent side. The parts where he explored our world and our advanced technology were some [...]

    8. First ImpressionTarzan retelling?! WHAT! There are many retellings out now a days, but how often do you come across one on Tarzan? I can't think of any, it's just so rare! Back in April after reading the synopsis I added it to my 2014 shelf and when I say there was a blog tour for it, well of course I had to sign up! I mean's TARZAN!The Good - More plot, less Romance - I loved that this was not a romance driven novel. I mean yes, you have a little bit of romance between Cade and Dara, obviously [...]

    9. As soon as I read the blurb for this book, I got really excited. I love Tarzan and this new imagining of it sounded brilliant. And, it definitely turned out to be just that! Wild was an absolutely amazing YA read. I loved everything about it, from the characters, to the story, to the romance. It was all perfect.Dara was a great heroine. She was very determined and refused to let anyone push her around. When she got her mind set on something, nothing was going to keep her from doing it. I really [...]

    10. I’ll start by putting this little tidbit out in the open: I don’t like Tarzan. Yes, yes, I can hear the collective gasp from miles away, but its’ true, I don’t like it. Not even the Disney version convinced me. The reason why I read Wild by Alex Mallory was simply because it was available to me. I know very shallow reason but please accept it. But that aside, it was…decent. This is one of those not unusual occasions where I usually state how I don’t exactly hate it but neither did I [...]

    11. Wild is going to be one of those books were everything hinges on the reader liking the writing style. If you can't get into the writing style you are going to have a very hard time liking this book. I on the other hand had no issues with the writing style. I actually thought it suited quite well the tone of the whole book.Wild read almost like a documentary kind of, but in a good way? I'm not sure how to explain it. It covers all the major characters and their interactions during those certain e [...]

    12. YOU CAN ALSO READ MY REVIEW HERE AND ENTER THE GIVEAWAY."Do you even know what a phone is?""Yes. It plays music in your bag, and you cuss until it stops. Then you hold it in front of your face and talk to yourself."I don't know if it's just me, but I never really encountered any YA retelling of Tarzan before. You can see a lot of Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast etc. But Tarzan? Unlikely. So imagine my squealing when I discovered this book. Especially when I got to be a part of the tour. I should [...]

    13. **4.5/5 stars**Originally posted at: iliveforreading/2It was only when I’d finished reading this book and started writing this review that I found out that Alex Mallory is Saundra Mitchell. I really loved The Vespertine! It was one of the first books that I’d reviewed on the blog, but I unfortunately didn’t manage to continue with the series. I’m glad to say though that Wild was an amazing book. I’ve never heard of a Tarzan retelling in YA, and despite the lack of excellent musical num [...]

    14. An advance copy of this title was provided in exchange for an honest review.This review can also be found at The Starry-Eyed Revue.I've pretty much loved all of the historical fiction novels I've read of Saundra Mitchell's, so when I heard she was writing a YA retelling of Tarzan under a pen name, I immediately added the book to my wishlist. I wasn't disappointed. The tone and voice of this novel were so different from her other books that it was as if she was a different author completelybut [...]

    15. Dara and Josh both lie to their parents and decide to go camping for their Spring Break instead of going to Florida with the rest of their friends. Dara and Josh both hope that this trip will bring them closer together as a couple and help to ease the fighting and tension that has been growing over the past couple of years. As Dara is exploring and taking pictures of their surroundings, she starts to hear things move and she feels as if she’s being watched. When she tells Josh, he doesn’t be [...]

    16. badbirdreads/review-wild-b2.5 starsAt A GlanceI am so conflicted.The GoodI have a lot of crap I can say about this book but for some dang reason I kind of enjoyed it. Yeah, it’s slow, yeah, it’s too long, but I just sat back and let the story flow, and it wasn’t half bad. After finishing Wild, I was going to give it 3 stars because it was a good relaxing, fluff book. But after a couple days I started getting annoyed about a lot of stuff that you will read about in The Bad. If I had written [...]

    17. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: The pacing was slow in this retelling of Tarzan — very, very, very slow. However, it was altogether enjoyable.Opening Sentence: There’s a secluded camp deep in the heart of Danielle Boone National Forest.The Review:Wild was a modern retelling of Tarzan. Cade lives in Danielle Boones National Forest, living off the land, parents both dead, the only thing left from them is their warning to never trust outsiders. Beyond the forest is riddle [...]

    18. Boricuan Bookworms- Book Reviews. “You’re Dara,” the boy said. “I’m Cade.”As far as retellings go, this is one of the most imaginative ones I’ve read. I was really curious as to how the author would manage to create a modern-day Tarzan; Alex Mallory did such an amazing job!Cade has lived all his life in the woods. That’s the only life he knows, when he rescues Dara from a bear attack, he’s suddenly brought back to the “real world”.I think the most interesting part of all of [...]

    19. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)16-year-old Cade lives in the forest; his parents are dead, and he believes that there are very few surviving humans on the planet due to the virus that caused his mother to hide them in the woods.When a girl and boy (Dara and Josh) come camping in the forest, Cade is intrigued by the fact that they don’t seem to be sick.Is it true that there are few surviving humans left? [...]

    20. The Wild is a retelling of Tarzan which made me really eager to read this as soon as I saw this because I rarely see a retelling of Tarzan. And man, this book is one of the best retelling books that i've ever read. .1.) I like how the author put a twist to the story by shoving Cade which was by the Tarzan to the real world in which he experienced a very hard time because he was chased by social workers, NBI and paparazzis. .2.) although its a 450 page book, I still felt that it should be longer [...]

    21. Modern day Tarzan!!! This is so GOOD!!! You MUST READ IT!!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!*MC’s Corner*• Cade screams Primitive Boy!!! He’s so cool!He’s fascinated by the modern technology, kiddy toys, and food. Oh!! He love’s bacon. (ME? NO! I H-A-T-E BACON! It’s disgusting!). He’s still scared about almost everything. He just want Dara, there’s a weird part where it’s kinda I-want-to-mate-her thing.• I also like the he knew the alphabet, and other normal things that you can teach kid [...]

    22. Did not finish at page 181. I did not really enjoy this like I thought I would. For starters, this book dragged on forever getting no where. I was almost halfway through the book when something finally happened. I couldn't connect with the main character Dara. They all pretty much lacked any personality. Plus I really hated that Dara and her boyfriend, Josh knew they weren't going to be with each other after high school, yet they kept telling themselves that it was for the best of them to stay t [...]

    23. DNF at 29%This book was kind of a risk for me. I don't love contemporary stuff, but I do love retellings, and I was quite familiar with Tarzan going into this book, so I hoped I would like it. I didn't. This had all the trappings of the contemporary stuff I don't enjoy - a slow pace, characters that aren't outstanding, and a plot that doesn't really interest me. To tell you the truth, I wasn't exactly sure where this book was going, and I wasn't so interested to find out. The only thing I really [...]

    24. Goodness I loved this book despite the ending (indeterminate). It was so cute and the author writes so well and it was an absolute delight to read! This is the longest books I've read in a while but I read strait through it since I couldn't put it down! It was delightful and wonderful all around! The only complaint I have is its a little slow in some parts (it takes about 100 pages to get out of the woods). But slow books don't trouble me at all! It was wonderful!

    25. A sweet collision of boy and girl, "he's from the woods, she's from the world." Ms. Mallory's modern-day Tarzan retelling is set in Kentucky—a totally enjoyable read for a new generation.

    26. Ok, wow. I don't know how I made it through all 434 pages of this book. The middle wasn't so bad, but it definitely wasn't worth my time reading this book. Pass if you can!!!

    27. Ok I admit it, I skipped around, a lot! So, maybe it was a good book in the in-between pages I didn't read, but I doubt it.
