I like the book because it tells good descriptions. For example, it might say, "The smooth grass brushed against Rusty's silky fur as he stalked a small gray mouse scurrying across the hard ground" instead of "Rusty saw a mouse." My favorite part of this book is when Rusty fought Gray Paw. This is because Rusty is just a house cat, but Gray Paw is a clan cat and trains for fighting. One of the reasons I like this part is because it has a lot of action and interesting vocabulary. For example it said "Suddenly, Rusty heard a rustle in the grass, he guessed it was a mouse, before he new it he was running for his life."
I like the character Rusty. I like him because he's a strong and noble cat. I know this because one of the Thunder Clan warriors tried to kill Rusty, but he fought him off. Also later in another book from this series, he saves his leader.
As I mentioned, this book is part of a series. Into the Wild is different from the other books in the series because as the books go on Rusty is more accepted into the clan and sometimes gets very great honors. It is an important book because it will help you understand the events in the other books.
I recommend this book to people who are ages 9 and up. I would recommend it to this age group because it would not be a good book for younger readers since it has violence in it. There is fighting and some gory scenes.
