What is the theme of this book? — Chomp Q&A
Book Review: Chomp, by Carl Hiaasen
Why I picked it up. Both of these together meant that I had to at least take a closer look. After reading the teaser on the back, I knew it was a must read. Just like all of Hiaasen books I have read, there is a dry wit that just makes me smile. I found myself connected and chuckling throughout the read. The story line, while a little silly, is current to our current pop culture and how it has succumbed to reality television.
Survival is an important theme in "Chomp," which chronicles production of a reality show called "Expedition Survival! They see him kill and eat wild creatures, supposedly so he won't starve, but after filming ends he enjoys gourmet meals. They see him build shelters and canoes, but those things are actually built by crew members or natives. They hear him talk about hiking to the point of exhaustion, but between scenes he rests in his luxury motor coach or a fine hotel. Derek Badger is a survivalist in name only.
The Crays lead a life rich with natural learning, play, and duty. One of Mickey's major roles in Chomp besides the good dad is environmental stewardship—a. While Wahoo willingly follows in his dad's footsteps, Derek tries to control nature and use it for his own selfish purposes. In this book, it seems like your fate is determined by how much you respect the environment. For a long time, humans have used the environment for our own gain without thinking about the consequences of our behavior.
