Dit is het verhaal van wat er met Brian Robeson zou zijn gebeurd als hij aan het eind van [b:Neergestort|17269311|Neergestort (Overleven in de Wildernis #1)|Gary Paulsen|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1358802475s/17269311.jpg|1158125] niet was gered en alleen door de koude winter in Noord-Canada moest komen.

De Winter is boek over een jongen genaamd Brian die de winter in de Canadese wildernis moet overleven nadat zijn vliegtuig was neergestort. Brian richtte zijn basiskamp op ongeveer vijftig meter van het meer en ongeveer vijftig meter van het bos.

Hij mist bijna de tekenen dat de winter komt, maar wanneer hij het eindelijk snapt, realiseert hij zich dat hij veel werk te doen heeft. Er zijn veel dingen die hij voor zichzelf zal moeten leren, maar de grootste daarvan is uitzoeken hoe je warm kunt blijven en hoe je voedsel kunt vinden als de temperatuur ver onder 0° daalt.

Ik heb echt genoten van de creatieve kant van dit boek, omdat Brian veel dingen moest improviseren om hem in leven te houden, maar ook om hem de winter door te helpen en hem te huisvesten. Wat me een beetje tegenstaat in dit boek was het einde. Brian vind een blokhut die net iets buiten de grens van zijn ontdekkingstochten ligt. Dan blijkt dat de bewoner van die blokhut al enige tijd wist dat er iemand in de omgeving 'kampeerde'.

(Het is een beetje lastig dat in de Nederlandse vertaling dit het 2e boek in de serie is, maar in de Engelse taal de derde). ( )

3.5 stars

In “Hatchet”, 13(?)-year old Brian is stranded in the Canadian North after a plane crash. What if winter had come and he was still there? This looks at Brian trying to survive the winter on his own.

I listened to the audio and enjoyed it. It looks like I rated the first two books 4 stars each, but on thinking back, I feel like “Hatchet” should have been 4 stars and “The River” probably 3.5, same as this one. In any case, it was interesting to see the kinds of things Brian had to do/learn in order to survive over the winter. ( )

Fall came on with a softness, so that Brian didn't realize what was in store--a hard-spined north woods winter--until it was nearly too late.
