Really easy to readReviewed in Canada on 7 March 2021
Very enjoyable reading. It’s about the boy difficult journey and making the best of it . Some scenes are very descriptive and vivid, disturbing. It would be more appropriate for older teenagers.
Afraid to reach the last page :(Reviewed in the United States on 8 February 2021
I used to read Mr. Paulsen's stories to my sons when they were young. We started with Hatchet and it led to a wonderful and much cherished time I spent with them. It is many years later and I myself have continued to read his stories! I have read every single one he's published. I know his books are intended for young readers, but I find them delightful and easy to read. Every one is like a journey and I am sad when they come to an end. Now, as a widowed empty nester, I find Gary Paulsen stories like old friends.

How to live a life well against all oddsReviewed in the United States on 5 March 2021
This was a real life story if survival against all odds. The fact that he survived and became a prolific writer is a tribute to the family (a compassionate Aunt and Uncle) and a civil servant (the librarian) had a profound and lasting impact on his life. I have read all the books written by Mr. Paulson. Thank you for giving me the courage to problem solve and face and challenges in my own life. You are an inspiration as well remarkable writer. Against all odds you overcame so much in your young life. You gave thanks to those special people who helped you grow, learn and write. You are a remarkable person of character and strength. I encourage all to read his books.

Tough Life RecountedReviewed in the United States on 15 January 2021
I enjoyed this book, but it ended too abruptly. I have been many things-son, brother, lover, soldier, husband, father and Sergeant. My new “role” is Grandpa which has been fun so far. Some “roles” were joyous and some were not. This is a good recounting that ends too abruptly.

Amazing story.Reviewed in the United States on 2 March 2021
I have been a Gary Paulsen fan since my boys were little. I love that this book reads like other Paulsen novels even though it's his biography. If you're buying this for young readers, I suggest reading it yourself first. There are some tough topics that might be difficult for some young readers to process and might lead to further conversation.
