This is a good book I liked it a lot One of the things I liked the most was the part when Brian talks to Caleb, his therapist I liked the bond they had with each other It wasn t like a regular therapist customer bond, but like a friend bond.Most of the book is in the wilderness Some of it, like the beginning, is in the city Brian didn t like the city much because it was really loud and there was a lot of people He wanted to be in a quiet place, and alone That s what the woods gave him That s an [...]

  5. I enjoyed Brian s Return by Gary Paulsen, because it deals with Brian and his adventures I am a country boy so I could relate to him It is basically about a teenage boy who in an earlier book gets stranded in Minnesota and has to fend for himself It is a continuation of the story about real life events that had happened to the author Gary Paulsen This book talks about how he overcame his fear of the country When he was forced to live his life in the wilderness after the plane crash He goes throu [...]

  6. I just finished reading Brian s Return by Gary Paulsen, I thought that the book was excellent, I could picture the experiences of the book in my head, like how he describes how the trees moved or the sunsets over the lake When Brian decided to go back, I thought he was crazy, but then when he is there and makes the choice to never leave and live the rest of his life there, it blew my mind that after all that Brian went through, he would want to stay there.The main character of the book, Brian, i [...]

  8. I love the way the author describes the setting The Descriptions really brought the story to life Brian s return is a very compelling story about a boy s itch to be one with nature I recommend this to anyone who likes adventure.

  9. I think that much of what makes Brian Robeson such a compelling figure is the way that his character reflects the life and philosophy of author Gary Paulsen Brian is an intensely autobiographical creation, and the spirit of personal independence and craving for nothing than to just be a part of the wilderness a craving that had its origin in the first book of his adventures, Hatchet is clearly the heartfelt desire of Gary Paulsen played out on the page, in a situation that he has imagined into [...]

  17. I picked this one up out of curiosity, to see how Mr Paulsen got Brian back to the wilderness Besides, it s short and a quick read You can see from my previous reviews that this series has been hit and miss for me Brian s Return, the fourth installment of the saga, was mostly a hit.After his extended period of time alone in the wilderness, Brian has a hard time readjusting to real life, even after being back for than a year In what would undoubtedly be diagnosed today as a reaction triggered by [...]

  28. After enjoying both Hatchet and Brian s Winter, I decided to go ahead and read this book as well An interesting follow up to Hatchet, this book explores what it s like for Brian to try to reintegrate to life outside the wild, and his longing to return to the woods.

  29. It is 3am and I am determined to finish this book It is captivating and gives you that hunger to see what will happen next Brian is so happy to be back in the woods as he learns to expect the worst, no matter what This book isn t as specific as Hatchet in his ordeals, but it s interesting non the less I was quite impressed with how the author came to write these books you should follow your heart and live each day to its highest peak.
