Our family listened to this book on a car ride. Our ride was over before the book and everyone was disappointed that we arrived at our destination. Later I got the kids to clean their rooms by finishing the book. I highly recommend to everybody.
Loved it! Truly a must read and also listen to. I also have read Brian's Hunt and it is just as good. Getting the rest of the series. I wish my dad had read them to me. Great adventure story. Any boy or girl who loves nature, the outdoors, adventure, survival, will love this. Should be required reading for all Cub Scouts. As a dad of 4 children, they will all hear this one with me, and I will enjoy it each time. Only thing I wish was left out was how many times "the secret" was talked about. Part of life I know, but still wish it had not been talked about as much as it was.... But nothing to stop this being a must read! Enjoy... Well worth the purchase.. The book should be read by children before listening.. Just like movies! Don't Rob them of their own imagination and personal experience reading it with you.
My daughter read this book for school and wanted to listen to it on audiobook. The entire family enjoyed the story. The reader did a nice job although we could have done without the background music that played on and off throughout the book for emphasis.
A classic from my childhood. The only thing I didn't like about the book was the random background music. It was unnecessary.
I chose this book for the family to listen to on our summer vacation! Big hit with everyone, but especially the boys/man! Looks like I'll be buying The River for the return trip! Peter Coyote did a fantastic job with the narration! Thumbs way up all the way around!!
