The First book in Brian’s Saga by Gary Paulson
Storyline: Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is on his way to visit his father when the single-engine plane in which he is flying crashes. Suddenly, Brian finds himself alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but a tattered Windbreaker and the hatchet his mother gave him as a present—and the dreadful secret that has been tearing him apart since his parent’s divorce. But now Brian has no time for anger, self pity, or despair—it will take all his know-how and determination, and more courage than he knew he possessed, to survive.
I’m gonna be honest.. the only reason I bought this book was because it was set in the Canadian wilderness.. that intrigued me. But I came to find that I actually enjoyed the book quite a lot! Which was a pleasant surprise! It’s a survival story. which I love! I mean who hasn’t lived in the middle of no where and on play dates would go out into the forest and pretend to be stranded and had to survive? No? Just me, my brother and uncles and aunt? (Note: my uncles are 2 and 3 years older than I am and my aunt is 1 year older than me) Okie dokie, moving on!…..the character is a young boy who’s stuck and has no choice but to try his best to survive and he has some major setbacks and some pretty bad luck at times! Especially with that moose, stupid moose. It was such a fun quick book to read! It kept me hooked and I was so enthralled with Brian’s story! It felt like I was actually there, terrified and attempting to survive with him (except for the fact I was sitting on my couch cozy and eating chips while he was starving) I would absolutely recommend this book! It was super great!
I rate this book
