Description

Will Hobbs' adventure novels set in the great outdoors have garnered a slew of awards, including numerous selections as ALA Best Books for Young Adults. In Never Say Die, 15-year-old Inuit hunter Nick Thrasher takes a trip downriver with his half-brother Ryan, who's visiting Canada's Arctic to photograph the caribou migration. But when disaster strikes, Nick is forced to survive alone in a landscape filled with dangerous predators. Most of all, he fears the terrifying "grolar bear," the half-grizzly, half polar-bear hybrid that isn't supposed to exist - except Nick has seen it with his own eyes.

Professional reviews

"Nick Cordero gives a crisp, fast-paced reading of this Arctic adventure. Nick Thrasher, an Inuit teenager, goes on a photography journey to the Canadian tundra with his half-brother, Ryan, whom he's just met. The pair face danger, witness the beauty of a caribou migration, and form a lasting bond. But Cordero doesn't do much to differentiate the characters' voices. Furthermore, his terse reading of dialogue leaves the listener feeling disconnected. He does bring out the intensity of the action scenes, such as when the brothers are repeatedly attacked by a vicious "grolar bear" a cross between a grizzly and polar bear. But that intensity doesn't ease up enough during the slower scenes, making the listener wish for a reprieve. M.M.G. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
