Great book, full color photos, excellent information! As a new kayaker (but someone who's been on several guided advanced white water rafting trips) I found the section on reading a river to help understand safe-to-travel versus either pre-scout or portage areas really helpful. Found the pictures plus accompanying text for these and many other topics (wet-exit from kayak, paddle strokes, kayak carrying & entry options...) very helpful and well done.
Great Book!
Talented, fun-to-read rewrite of an age-old fairy tale. Characters are interesting and intelligent. Well worth the time to read/listen to! Readers on this book on cd are enjoyable to listen to.
Well worth reading
Great characters, really cool setting and a strong heroine that people will enjoy getting to know.
Compare to The Hunger Games
This was required reading for college-prep high schoolers of previous generations. Gives the reader a lot to think about, a book that will stay with you for a long time. This book was the predecessor to this generations "Survivor" style reality games, or "The Hunger Games" trilogy. Quick read that's worth the time.
Powerful, Must-Read Series
Powerful series that draws you in and stays with you long after you've finished it. Explores family relationships, friendships, long-held beliefs in oneself and ones' abilities. Kaniss is the absolute antithesis of the helpless female. Well worth reading!
