    I really enjoyed this book. It had the feeling of real danger, but still felt safe enough, this helped it to not be overly frustrating. I listened to it all the way through in one sitting (I know it's only 4 hours long or something) it kept me that enthralled. I'm a 24 year old man so take my opinion with whatever gain of salt you feel necessary. One Love everyone!

    A great short story. Grips you from the very beginning. The only regret is that it wasn't longer!

    A really great read. Incredible to believe that this really happened. A great lesson in survival, positive thinking and just in life.

    again I thought "kids book", but my son urged me to listen to this one. So I did. I really liked it and I was very surprised how grown up this "kids" book really is. It's a very good and quick "read". And we can all learn from it.

    This book was very entertaining, even for an adult. I was excited to pass this on to my grandchildren for their entertainment, but decided against it due to the "secret" Brian is keeping. I thought it was unnecessary to the story and wondered why it was even included.
