The River by Peter Heller
Genre/Categories/Setting: Contemporary Fiction, Wilderness Survival/Thriller, Friendship
In 2020, I decided to systematically revisit my older review posts and update them. On Thursdays, I’ll be re-sharing a few of these great reads. Today, I’m re-sharing a review of an atmospheric wilderness survival thriller, The River by Peter Heller.
I’m linking up today with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for #throwbackthursday.

“The River is a story of wilderness survival and friendship with a generous side of suspense/thriller. Wynn and Jack are college friends who enjoy the mountains, reading, and fishing, but they get more than they bargained for in this wilderness canoe trip.

Thanks for linking to my review!
Survival shows are some of my favorite to watch. I have not read a book about survival but I really should!
