On the Island popped up as recommended on my Kindle, so I checked it out. I found the story line interesting, but the plot seemed to move too quickly at times, which didn't allow for the development that I would have liked. I did enjoy the themes, as they provided deeper questions for the readers to ponder about age and love and relationships. I often felt connected to the emotions of the characters, which is a real plus for me in a book. I feel like this book would make an interesting movie.
