I recently reread "Hatchet" and "Brian's Winter," having first read them in elementary school. Of the Brian series, this is the only book I never finished in elementary school, and I discovered today, by surprise, that I have a copy of it on my bookshelf. So I sat down and read it. It isn't my favorite — it's not as engaging as "Hatchet" and "Brian's Winter" (I can't speak for "The River," since I haven't reread it recently), and the excerpts of the letters to Caleb and the bits about Shakespeare felt clumsy, but it wasn't a bad book overall. I read it in one sitting, and I enjoyed the author's note at the end, but the book was still missing something.
