Written in English. Edition Notes Sequel to Hatchet.
P Ri The Physical Object Pagination p. Yes with the emergency of Derek being in a coma lead to the rafting down a river but they never really reach their destination of the trade post, considering dereks condition this is understandable. Only part that wasn't really realistic was he never stopped for food with all that work all those hours he would have needed to eat to keep up his energy to do so.
Like I said however this is still one of my favorite books. Great sequel to The Hatchet. Great book for a boy who or a girl who doesn't like to read very much. Exciting, boy has to survive in the wilderness by himself building fires, finding out which berries he can eat how to catch the fish how to skin the fish how to cook the fish just an excellent book I would recommend it to any boy or girl probably 9 years old or up but I would definitely suggest that they read the Hatchet first before they read the River.
He says they all seem to follow the same literary "formula" just in different settings - winter, an island, etc but he loves the outdoors and adventure books so he enjoys them, despite their slight predictability.
Survival in the wilderness. Audio CD Verified Purchase.
This is the sequel to and should be read after "Hatchet. In Hatchet, year-old Brian survives for 54 days in the Canadian wilderness alone. The next summer the military hires Brian to do it again with one of them taking notes so they can train other people how to survive.
Because it will help save lives, Brian agrees to do it. He and Derek fly to a different area in the Canadian wilderness.
While there lightning strikes Derek causing a coma. The radio is also broken. Brian decides to build a raft to take them down the river to get help since Derek will die in a few days without water. I loved Hatchet. This was enjoyable but not as good. I enjoy being with Brian as he thinks and acts in the survival environment. This book didn't have as many episodes or scenes with different animals and threats as the first book.
In other words - not as many problems to solve and Brian didn't learn or grow as much as he did in the first book.
So, not a lot happens here but I still liked it. The book is shorter than standard novels. The narrator Peter Coyote was excellent. The author wrote many books, but the Hatchet series consists of: Hatchet read first 5 stars. Brian's Winter read second or third but I prefer second 3 stars.
The River read second or third 4 stars. Brian's Return 3 stars. Unabridged audiobook length: Peter Coyote. Swearing language: Sexual content: Not quite as good as Hatchet, as the struggle to survive is contrived to begin with. Military experts want him to go thru a similar experience while being observed so they can figure out how he was able to survive. They need to know what about him helped him the first time.
What he teaches them could help others who might be in similar situations. When things go wrong Brian has new problems to solve. He is responsible for another person who has been struck by lightening and is in a coma. There is less focus on how painful and consuming hunger can be.
More focus on making critical decisions. How to get the injured man back to civilization, building a raft, learning how to navigate on the river.
There are periods where Brian is exhausted because he is trying to get to the trading post as fast as possible. He falls asleep, dreams and hallucinates for portions of this excursion. Still a good story. We will look for the next one in this series. My 12 year old really likes this series which is great because he is not a big fan of books. Listening to them on tape is great. We loved the first one and the second one is just o.
Kind of short. Judging by other reviews we agree that the second one is not as good as the first, but it had really good moments. Definately will check out the next in the series because they are good enough to continue on.
I wouldn't hesitate to get this and recommend finishing the series, especially for a boy who doesn't like to read, it is almost a miricle series. Peter Coyote forgive the spelling is a fabulous reader, he gets 5 stars!
