"Brilliant book, wonderfully read"
Wolf Brother is a fantastic coming-of-age novel about a young boy, Torak, living in the Stone Age, who finds that he has to grow up very quickly. Michelle Paver really breathes life into the characters and their lives; she pays great attention to the detail of how they live, dress, eat, etc. The supernatural elements are cleverly woven into details about their superstitions, beliefs and religion such that it's a bit blurry where superstition ends and magic begins. The story is told from different viewpoints, one of them being that of Torak's companion, Wolf, who is frequently bemused by the complexities of 'tall tailless' behaviour. A book for 'young' adults of all ages. Funny, touching, entertaining, thoroughly recommended. Ian McKellen's narration is just right; he has such a lovely voice.
The first time I listened to this I was very young but I remember listening to this every night and falling asleep. It is such an amazing story to get lost into, I highly recommend listening to this beautiful series of audio books as I have such fond memories of it.

"great adventure and story of loss and friendship"
from snippets overheard from my 7 year old son listening to it, I felt compelled to listen myself... we both enjoyed the story, a real adventure with nail biting (for kids) challenges and dangers. Overcome by courage, wit, trust and grit. a great story, read brilliantly by sir Ian. Will be listening to more in the series...
A fantastic narration of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone interested in listening to this audiobook.
A must read
