I read Gary's first book and like everyone elseReviewed in Australia on 25 February 2015
I read Gary's first book and like everyone else, Cookie was my favourite character in a book. I have been dog sledding in Whitehorse, at Muktuk and know what they are talking about. In Winter Room he tells more his love of the white wilderness and his life with Cookie. Lovely gentle read.

Not much ActionReviewed in the United States on 10 June 2018
My grandsons and I love reading Gary Paulsen, but this book didn't quite work for us. Most of it was taken up with nostalgic descriptions of the old farm, farming procedures and house, with very little actual story.

100% yesReviewed in the United States on 15 November 2017
To be read once, and then again, alone or aloud, with your children or with your partner. See through the eyes of 11-year-old Eldon, as he describes with poetry his life on a Minnesota farm and discovers his Uncle David through magical tales on winter nights.

Good bookReviewed in the United States on 18 November 2015
Purchased as a gift for a 10 years old boy in advanced classes and he like Paulsen books. Found it is also good for older readers who have difficulty w/Jack London.

Too slow for a 9-year-oldReviewed in the United States on 14 June 2011
My wife and have been delighted reading other Gary Paulsen books to our 9-year-old. While "The Winter Room" was satisfied for us adults, our son was quickly bored. Paulsen does a wonderful job activating all five senses as he creates his scenes, and his parents were being drawn into the story and historical setting. But our boy needs a good deal more action. My guess is that a girl may find it more interesting.
