I think Brian's Return is a great book. If you have read Hatchet, The River, and Brian's Winter (like I have) then you will understand the story better 'cause you probably wouldn't really understand it if you haven't read at least one of those three books that came before this one. This time, Brian is back at home and he can't seem to adjust to his formal life at home. After he gets into a huge fight with this kid who is jelous of him and gets arrested for it, he decides that the best place for him is back in the woods and so he goes back there. This time, Brian is prepared and he is used to the way the woods is so he can survive. I think this book is awesome and if you have read Hatchet, The River, and Brian's Winter and liked those books, then I can gaurentee that you will like Brian's Return! Even if you haven't read those books but have read other books by Gary Paulsen then you should get this book!

After surviving a plane crash, Brian revisits the "real world" which does not seem to make sense any longer. Brian decides to return to the woods and has no intentions of going back home. Gary Paulsen is an excellent writer. Brian's Return is one of the best adventure stories I have ever read.

I like reading Gary Paulsons books but they keep repeating things like getting attacked by bears and having to hunt and fish for food. If you have either read hatchet and/or brians winter it gets very repitive.

I don't understsand how he does it time and time again - comes up with original ideas and story lines. The conclusion of the series - and there was no other way to finish it. I often wondered what happened to Brian when he returned to school and the "real" world. I couldn't help but like his world better. The adventure - to be that self assured and confident of your own abilities. To be able to survive and even see yourself years down the road as he did. This was one of Mr. Paulsen's best books - I wish the series didn't have to end - but since it does - he did an awesome job at it!

Some of the best memories are those we have long-forgotten, intentionally or not. I truly believe that "Brian's Return" is one of the most captivating and fascinating adventures ever told. A must-read for today's teens who seem to be ever caught up in the high-tech, high pressure world of today, yet searching within themselves for something that is missing in their lives - precious childhood.

My son and I have been reading Gary Paulsons books since we found Hatchet by accident. We really enjoy them and find that even if they do tend to repeat some events that each is new and exciting. I will miss Brian and have high hopes that maybe in 5 years Mr Paulson will write about Brian and where he is in his life at that point.. HINT HINT

Brian's return to the wilderness is full of action-packed adventure. Brian discovers that the wilderness is where he belongs. Gary Paulsen's writing is realistic and descriptive-it feels as if you're right beside Brian. If you enjoy the outdoors, you have to read this book!

I read the first of this series (Hatchet) when I was 10 and loved it, now at 31 I have finally read all of the others in the series and loved them too.
