Just when you thought Brian's adventures were finished, Paulsen gives his readers one more tale in the Canadian wilderness. Most of the story is written as Brian's thoughts, and Ron McLarty does a pleasing job narrating Brian's haunting and reflective inner voice. This type of narration is difficult, yet his tone is just right, and when Brian does speak, his narration changes suitably. In this tale, Brian returns to the wilderness after becoming disenchanted with the civilized world. At the end of the book, Paulsen explains that this book was written in response to the many letters he received asking for more Brian stories. BRIAN'S HUNT tells of the main character's quest for his place in the world and his connection to Mother Earth. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
