only thing he has from his father who vanished eight years ago Since his dad left, Dan s mom has dated a string of bad guys When his mom introduces Dan to Hank, he isn t concerned, but then when they announce their engagement, Dan s world trembles on its axis Things get even worse when his mother send Dan on a week long survivalist camping trip with Hank Dan insists that Charlie, his best friend, accompany him Charlie and Dan cook up a plan to sabotage Hank so he will leave, but they aren t prepared for the mayhem that awaits them Will Dan survive the wilderness What I Liked Dan Against Nature is a book that will appeal to a certain audience, mainly teenage boys Even though there is plenty of gross humor and embarrassing pranks, I still found myself giggling If you like books that feature teenage boy narrators and you can handle boyish humor, this is a fun one to take on The two man characters, Dan and Charlie, are the type of underdog characters you can t help but cheer for They are small, scrawny, shy, awkward and bullied Dan is a talented artist, while Charlie is a brainiac Together they cook up and pull of some outlandish pranks and schemes all in order to get Hank, Dan s future step dad to run away I was pleased to see by the end of their adventure, they both had grown and they wereconfident I also liked the way the situation with Hank was handled I appreciated the growth and maturity The humor is what make this book Yes, it involves a lot of boyish pranks, and plenty of bodily humor such as vomit, farts, explosive diarrhea, etc There is also the classic wiping your behind with poison ivy, and plentyembarrassing situations that will have you laughing out loud This book will definitely appeal to the teenage boy, but if you aren t afraid to take on a bit of crude humor and outlandish pranks, you will get a kick out of this There is even a bit of a romance, though it isn t the typical swoony, melt your heart type It is what you would expect from a romance when you have immature teenage boys involved Still it was funny to see the two characters come together and bond over their shared interests I liked watching the rag tag group survive in the wilderness It ends up being a survivalist story, and even though the situation was dire at times, it always remained upbeat and funny The ending is satisfactory, all the story lines are tied up neatly, and there is no cliffhanger or unresolved issues And The Not So Much It is best to go into this one not expecting it to be realistic Some of the things that happen in the wilderness get to be a bit far fetched the bear, the exploding plane, the survivalist guide taking off with the mother to get it on, leaving the others behind, etc As the story progressed it gotandoutlandish, until I was rolling my eyes, especially when it came out the bear I was a bit disappointed that there wasn tdevelopment with the romances I was hoping fordepth and so forth, but I am a girl, and I am not the select audience Some of the pranks get to be a bit much, and if you can t handle boyish, bodily humor, this is not a book for you This is a book I would highly recommend reading on an ereader because the author includes a plethora of brainiac words that I had to look, and I have an expanded vocabulary I guarantee the average teenage boy will have no clue when the encounter these words, and while they served a purpose, they are over the top Dan Vs Nature is a book that will appeal to teenage boys, but any reader can enjoy it if you are willing to endure some crude humor I found myself laughing at some of the ridiculous plights, and I was entertained even though I am not the target audience The story falters a bit though with lack of realism, but it is still fun I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own, and I was not compensated for this review Posted Rainy Day Ramblings Rating 1.5 5 Minor spoilers Dan is a fifteen year

guys his mom dates any, and he thinks that even if Hank seems to be perfectly nice now, he must have something hidden about him that s a deal breaker Since Dan doesn t want Hank to be with his mom, he and his friend Charlie come up with a plan to make Hank so uncomfortable with parenting through a series of pranks that will hopefully make him leave his mother What makes it even easier is that his mom plans to send them on a wilderness trip that will allow them to bond before the wedding.This was a book I read for a book club at my school, and if I wasn t obligated to read this since we have to know all the books for the competition against other schools then I never would have picked this up I think I knew I would never like this, especially after peeking at a review or two talking about what this book was about Don t get me wrong, I m all for humour books but I just didn t find this book funny, it was just cringy I couldn t really laugh at all the pranks they were pulling on a guy who was innocent and did nothing wrong except love Dan s mother I also didn t like the characters very much at all The adults were okay, but the three main teenagers were pretty annoying Dan let himself be manipulated by his friend Charlie way too much Whenever he started feeling an ounce of guilt he just let Charlie talk him back into the plan Charlie was just plain annoying He spoke in the same phrasing as you would read in a professional lab report No contractions, big words, and generally unpleasant He didn t feel very developed either If he was just an app on Dan s phone instead, I feel like the book wouldn t change very much Penelope was similar to Charlie in terms of the way she spoke, which was pretty annoying, but at least she felt like someone who had a personality and could joke around Overall, this one wasn t my cup of tea I m not a big fan of watching innocent people suffer at the hands of two pretty stupid boys, so I couldn t really laugh at this one The plot was just not my thing, and the characters were for the most part quite annoying I think you would only like this book if you re into the whole pranking trope It got better towards the end of the book which is why I rated itthan just 1 star, but for the most part the pranking ruined it for me However, if you re fine with that then you ll probably enjoy this muchthan I did At Reading Rants Calame, I

to rate this book, because it s so extremely not my cup of tea, and I never would have finished it or started it if I didn t have to for class If I had to do a rating, it would maybe be2 stars It s puerile, extremely gross, and at times offensive It seems like it was written way earlier than 2016 I would have guessed like 2004 The ending was sort of heartfelt and nice in moments And I can imagine some teenage boys will love it And it was a pretty fast absor It feels unfair for me to rate this book, because it s so extremely not my cup of tea, and I never would have finished it or

absurdity of the high school boy He did not let me down with Dan Versus Nature
