    I struggled a bit with this one It is of course, a fascinating story how a 17 year old girl suvived a fall from a plane 2 miles in the sky and made it through the jungle back to safety on her own But the writer s style is jarring For example, she has a peculiar and annoying habit of starting a sentence at the end of a chapter and leaving it incomplete it is only in the next chaper, after its title, that the author finishes the sentence This felt contrived and unnessessary.Further, very little of the story actually focuses on her ordeal though the jungle Much of it is set much later on when the author is 56 years old and is setting up a nature reserve, and has to navigate the buerocracy of the region Obviously this is a worthwhile thing to do but it is not what I expected from the advertised synopsis of the book so I was a little disappointed.

    Trigger warnings plane crash, loss of a parent, horrifying descriptions of wounds and maggots 3.5 stars I found this story surprisingly compelling and interesting, but it definitely wasn t what I expected based on the title Basically, Juliane Koepcke grew up in Peru with her naturalist parents As a teenager, they moved to a nature reserve in the middle of nowhere She subsequently returned to Lima to attend high school On Christmas Eve of 1971, she and her mother were flying to the closest airport to the nature reserve on a commercial flight, which was struck by lightning and crashed Juliane was the only survivor With a broken collarbone, cuts and bruises, and a torn up knee, she somehow managed to a survive in the jungle alone for nearly two weeks and b follow the creeks and rivers of the Peruvian until she came across a boat and was rescued So I was expecting the bulk of the book to be about the crash and her staggering through the rainforest trying to find help Instead, there were only really a couple of chapters dedicated to that Probably half the book is about her life after the crash how it impacted her relationship with her father, how it felt having the press follow her everywhere, how she was really in shock over what happened for years as well as her adulthood and what she ended up doing with her life It s about how she returned to the rainforest, about the documentary that was made in which she returns to the crash site, about how she ended up following in her parents footsteps and studying the fauna of the Peruvian rainforest So it was definitely interesting, particularly seeing how well she s remembered in parts of Peru But it wasn t what I was expecting, that s for sure.

    The true story a the German Peruvian 17 year old who was the only survivor of a plane that crashed in Peru while crossing the Andes at Christmas time She lost her mother in the accident which also claimed 90 other lives Juliane tells her own story 40 years after the crash and her amazing eleven day journey out of the Peruvian rain forest It is also a story of her love of the jungle where she had been raised with her German zoologist parents and her struggle for survival of the ian rain forest.I had not heard of this book when a friend loaned it to me because she knew I had traveled in the ian part of Peru I enjoyed reading it and found the author s description of the area beautiful and her thoughts about survival guilt very thought provoking 3.5 stars.

    Story is about a woman who writes about how she survived 11 days in the jungle when the plane she was on crashed It is told like she is speaking to you and jumps from the present day to the time when she was in the jungle At some times it seems awkward but by writing in this way, the reader is able to get an understanding of what her life was like before the crash, background on her parents, what she did in the jungle for those days, after the crash, and the present I thoroughly enjoyed the book I like how Juliane also wrote about what she did after the crash and her continued interest in Panguana place where her parents did research and making it into a nature reserve for research but also including the locals to understand the importance of such an area Eventhough this book is about her, it reads very differently since it is not written in a way in which she is only talking about herself but rather mentions many people throughout the book and how they have impacted her life in different ways.

    Oh dear I was so looking forward to this, and even though Koepcke s eleven days getting out of the jungle after a plane crash is not actually that dramatic, she does have an interesting story to tell The daughter of two zoologists she spends many years in Peru before going home to Germany to become a zoologist herself But it felt as though Koepcke knew that her survival story wasn t strong enough to hang a whole book around and so she mixes it with going back to Peru with her husband to try and get her parents land recognised as a nature reserve but this isn t her first time back, and she doesn t really succeed, so that story is weak too , as well as mentioning the time she was taken back to the jungle by Werner Herzog to film a documentary nothing much to say here either And, unfortunately the writing is at times excruciatingly poor.

    Juliane after her 11 days in the jungleI finally finished it last night Wow this one took me ages to read but I do think it was not just the book but also my state of mind or lack of mind is the better expression because I was just too tired to read One negative thing was the annoyingly the constant jumping around in time In one example she had told us her grandmother had died and the next chapter she was staying at her grandmother.The story about what happened during the crash and the 11 days of her in the jungle getting out is just a small part of the book.That being said I did find the other stuff interesting as well I never knew that as a student you can go pick a subject and go travel to a place in the world and start to research She wrote about other researchers coming there and I was curious who pays them I also was interested about the world there in Peru Weirdly I liked the second half One person that intrigued me the most was Juliane s mother Tried to find out about her and what she did Very interesting pair of parents she Juliane had Juliane s parents Not the best book about survival but if you are interested in another way of living you might like it.

    I was expecting to read her story about how she survived the plane crash and how she made her way back to civilization through the forest I expected to get answers for, what she ate How she kept herself safe from wildlife How she managed to keep clam and psychologically strong for 11 days in forest along the river But, I am disappointed, none of them are answered.

    Bereits als Kind bte diese einzigartige berlebensgeschichte der damals 17j hrigen Juliane Koepcke eine gro e Faszination auf mich aus Am 24 Dezember 1971 ger t das Flugzeug, in dem sie gemeinsam mit ihrer Mutter sitzt, in schwere Turbulenzen Es st rzt ab und Juliane trudelt festgeschnallt an ihrem Sitz tausende Meter in die Tiefe, um im peruanischen Dschungel bruchzulanden Verletzt und ohne Kontakt zu anderen Passagieren und Menschen sucht sie den Weg zum Fluss, um dort auf Hilfe zu sto en, was ihr nach 11 Tagen gelingen soll Dort erf hrt sie nach und nach, dass sie die einzige berlebende ist Ihr unsagbares Gl ck bestand offenbar darin, dass ihre Eltern seit drei Jahren eine biologische Forschungsstation in diesem Dschungel aufbauten und sie somit ber berlebenswichtiges Wissen und Verhaltensma regeln verf gte und dass sie sich trotz des tiefen Sturzes in einem passablen k rperlichen Zustand befand.Vierzig Jahre sp ter schreibt Juliane Koepcke, verheiratete Diller, endlich diese Erlebnisse nieder, die ungef hr die H lfte des Buches einnehmen Au erdem schildert sie ausf hrlich die Arbeit und das Lebenswerk ihrer Eltern, beides angesehene Zoologen, die zu Beginn der 50er Jahre Deutschland verlassen, um sich in Peru biologischen Forschungen zu widmen Auch die Autorin wird sich der Biologie, Zoologie und kologie verschreiben und sich als erwachsene Frau aktiv f r den Umweltschutz im Peruanischen Dschungel engagieren Dies setzt f r einen umfassenden Lesegenuss nat rlich ein gewisses Interesse f r die Pflanzen und Tierwelt sowie f r Land und Leute in Peru voraus Ihre Schilderungen sind kurz und sachlich Manche m gen sie vielleicht auch im ersten Moment als berraschend distanziert empfinden Allerdings ist immerfort zwischen den Zeilen eine gro e Liebe zu ihrer Familie, zu Peru und vor allem zur Natur sp rbar Jener schicksalhafte Weihnachtstag ver nderte ihr Leben von Grund auf und pr gt es bis heute Dennoch zeigt sie keinerlei Selbstmitleid oder Wut, sondern schaut optimistisch nach vorn.Auch wenn dem Buch einige aussagekr ftige wie interessante Fotos angehangen sind, empfand ich es als wunderbare Erg nzung Werner Herzogs Dokumentarfilm von 1998 parallel dazu zu sehen, f r den er mit Juliane Koepcke Diller und ihren Mann nach Peru reiste und die Ungl cksstelle aufsuchte.
