Overview


In the novel The Cay, a young white boy and an old black man are stranded on a small sandy cay in the Caribbean Sea following a shipwreck. Eleven-year-old Phillip was blinded by flying debris when a torpedo struck the SS Hato, and old Timothy has taught him how to survive. This prequel-sequel tells the rest of their tale in alternating chapters--the compelling story of two very different people who share the courage and tenacity to turn their dreams into reality.
Includes a reader's guide.

After reading The Cay, I wanted to hear more about Timothy¿s life. This charismatic old man interested me, and I was sad when he died. Disappointed not to know anything of Timothy before the Hato and the Cay, I quickly read Timothy of the Cay. My curiosity for the vibrant history of a man, a man so passionate he gave his life for a child he barely even knew, was satisfied. When the 12 year old boy¿s first job was, at the last minute, given to a white boy instead, I was disturbed bye the deep rift racism had caused in the society he lived in. A colorful montage of Timothy¿s past, this book also serves another purpose. For those who were drawn in by Phillip¿s character, you will not be disappointed. As our young hero goes though surgery on his optic nerves, tension builds. What was timothy like as a child? Will Phillip see again, or die on the operating table? Read Timothy of the Cay to find out.

This book was amazingly great. When I read this book I was thinking about what I would have done in that situation. I couldn't belive that Phillp survived, blind on the cay by his self. I felt bad for Timothy when He had his bad times because he was black. This book just like many others that Theodore Taylor has wrote all show diversity, friend ship, the facts, and racisum. I highly recomend this book because of the emotion the sympothy the description. I hope you enjoy this book just as I had. :l

This book has got to be one of the best books I have ever read. The book dwells on the characters more then setting around them. So, while you are reading about a blind boy felling and thinking like you can¿t see you really want him to have surgery done so he can see again. The other chapter will be about a black child being judged upon by the color of his skin. So if like to read about the characters this is the book for you.

I think that this book was very interesting. It is a great explanation of the way Timothy acts regarding the way he was brought up. It also was very intriging to see the way Philip lives his life differently after he is blinded. Although this book is somewhat confusing due to the fact that it is a prequel/sequel, I would highly recommed it to anyone who wants more from a little place we call 'THE CAY'.

Taylor's sequel to The Cay was written over 20 years after the first book. The second book, can be described as a pre-quel. It highlights characters before The Cay and then flashes forward to Phillip's life after being rescued from the cay. The chapters flip-flop altering between story lines. I found myself reading alternate chapters and then going back and reading the other story separately. I'm not sure what this book was trying to solve, and it just doesn't measure up to the original, The Cay.

I read this bored out of my mind! Until I got to philips surgery,I feel like Philip's story was more interesting than Timothy's childhood. Though I shed a tear or two I was a little bit dissapointed that it didnt explain more about the return to the cay:( If there was to be a third book I think it should explain maybe Timothy's perspective of the story.
