    Story
    "Okay Novel, The 1st Novel of the Series was Better"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, simply because I'm reading a book.


    What could Jean Craighead George have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    To be honest, I really did not care for this sequel to the first novel. However, I cannot say for sure what Jean could have done to make it more enjoyable. Because I feel like anything I say would change the purpose of the sequel, so I would have to say leave the sequel as it is.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Woodman?

    The narrator from the first novel would have been my preference. Christian Rummel was his name. Jeff was a great narrator, but something about the way Christian read the story sounded better. For one thing, he narrated a little faster, which I was very pleased about. Because Jeff's narrating, I have to admit, sometimes made me want to stop listening and read it on my own.


    Was On the Far Side of the Mountain worth the listening time?

    Yes, after listening to the first novel I had to listen to the second. And the last novel of the series is definitely on my list as well.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    "The book my side of the mountain was amazing but on the far side of the mountain was even better!! I am so amazed.I love it.!!!!"

    I read the first book, and I really enjoyed it and I am so exited to read the 3rd book. I think that it was amazing how the author made the book so sad for people but a happy and amazing ending!🙂

    Story
    "More Frightful, Less Alice, Please!"

    Maybe I should not have read this as an adult, but everything that made My Side of the Mountain enjoyable was lacking in the sequel On the Far Side of the Mountain. It consists mainly of Sam rereading many of his old journal entries, the confiscation of his peregrine falcon, Frightful, and far too much of Sam's annoyingly needy sister, Alice. She chose to live with Sam in the wilderness, but then made endless demands of him (“Build me a treehouse!” “I want rabbit skins on my floor!”) before she disappeared with her pet pig (Yes, a pig named Crystal). Sam sets off to look for Alice, hoping to find Frightful. In all honesty, the return of Frightful was the only thing that kept me reading. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that the third book in this series, Frightful's Mountain, is much better, because it's told from Frightful's viewpoint with less from those irritating humans.
