Overall, the book does carry some excitement, such when the moose nearly attacked him, but as for an action story, this isn't the book that fits that description. The entire book is mostly about his trip down the river. This is a short book, and a very good one. I reccomend this book, especially for nature lovers.
Although I am aware that Dave has a rich vocabulary and is well educted, I was suprised that he integrated excerpts from Thoreau, "Big Two Hearted River," and "To Build a Fire." I have read these in my AP english class and this made it possible to connect with the book on another level.
You, the reader, will enjoy this book because for many of you, it will hit close to home. It's not like some other adventure stories where it takes place in the Amazon Jungles, or the Himalayian Mountains. No, this book takes place in Maine. This book is also very enjoyable because of its humor. It is laced in many parts of the stories. This is a must read for all of you "adventure junkees".
For those of you who dream of making a name for yourself, but don't quite know what to do, read an adventure book such as this and get inspired. Moose, cold, and an unforgiving river, could not stop this man Don't let skeptisizm stop you. If adventure and excitement are what you're into, read this book, reject fear as he did. It is an excellent piece. For those of you who have read it, you know what I mean.
In the book, he tells true life stories of confronting moose, living off the land, and even facing a slight case of hypothermia. I learned a lot from the story. I learned about the authors mental and physical struggles and how, I too, could survive in the insect-infested woods of Maine. His descriptive use of words and comic relief kept me intently reading throughout the book.
I recommend this book to anyone who's planning a trip to Maine or anyone who is looking for a good adventure story. David Curran's tales will keep you intently reading for hours. I hope he comes out with another book as soon as possible.
This is an amazing book and would recommend it to anybody who likes adventure stories. The text is so detailed it felt like you were on the trip
yourself. This book will give you the most detailed story of life in the maine wilderness.
Id recomend this book for any age group. It can be enjoyed by Davy crockett the 3rd or Mr. Works in a cubicle couch potato. this book gives a humurous look at the Maine Wilderness. Intresting aspects of solitude and an enxample of how different human attitudes effect life off the beaten trail.
