I really love this book because it works on so many levels at once. On its surface it is a fast-paced adventure story. On another level it is a deep character study of a young man facing great adversity. It is also integral to the story that it is a mystery. Each character has a mystery surrounding them that has to come to the surface, and the group as a whole must work together to solve the mystery of the island. The insights into human emotion and relationships are amazing. It is a study of group dynamics, a study of culture and anthropology, and a study of faith all at once. On a literary level there are so many uses of symbols and types -such as the use of Black itself and the concept of "sight". In other words, this book has something for everyone and more than expected for all.
