Far North

Author: Will Hobbs
Reviewer's Age: Grade 7

In the book Far North, Will Hobbs writes about how nature shows your character, by showing how two boys and a man fight for their lives in the Northwest Territories, throughout the winter. My impression of Far North is that it is a good book. This book gives you a story that seems so believable and unbelievable at the same time. The situation seems like no one could ever get stranded in the Northwest Territories, especially in winter. However, when Will Hobbs describes the characters, they seem so real, like you have known them for many years. The book foreshadowed in some parts and not in others. I think the foreshadowing made the book more enjoyable for me. The theme of this book is that nature unfolds your true self, by showing what a 'normal person' would do in this dangerous situation.
