"Paulsen at his best." (Booklist)
"Breathtaking....mesmerizing. (School Library Journal)
"Paulsen crafts a companion/sequel to Hatchet containing many of its same pleasures....Read together, the two books make his finest tale of survival yet." (Kirkus Reviews)
As I listened to "Hatchet" I thought that Brian just barely survived then I listened to "Brian's Winter," and I couldn't believe all the great lessons in dealing with nature in winter as well as life's problems and our own attitudes. This series gives many life lessons that I'll keep with me always. I loved the story and the narration and heartedly recommend this wonderful audio book.
Avid audio book listener
Hatchet was so awesome that I had to hear this sequel. At first I thought it was weird that it was an alternate ending to Hatchet, but in the end I enjoyed it even more. The high detail of how Brian learned to survive was realistic and fun. You get a sense of how much the character had changed since the beginning of hatchet, so it's kind of a coming of age book. Anyone that dreams of living off the land will enjoy this. The reader was pretty good too.
I home-school and am married with three sons. Listening to books while I get things done (like driving) has become a favorite pass-time.
Excellent book to read. I love Gary Paulsen's writing. The narrator is wonderful to listen to also.
loved this alternate ending to hatchet. excellent book! I enjoyed both endings but it's so nice to find out what could happen to Brian if he had to stay through winter.
Best book of all time for me. I swear I love it so much.
I would tell everyone that likes the outdoors to listen/read the hatchet books all in order!! This one is my favorite so please get this one!!!!!!!
It was great but probably let gtandchild listen and then delete.
Hatchet...the first Paulsen book in seriesmade it so interesting....the The River
Made it real
All of book
The entire book collection is the best of story's. I highly recommend it as a children's book and a adult book
I liked it. the endings in these books seem to stop the story too sudden and make it seem unfinished but not in a way that ruins it. could be better but it is still very enjoyable.
