Where does The Bear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The Bear is about an A-....I am very happy I purchased it and listened to it. I highly recommend the book -- it is written from the little girl's perspective. I cried a couple of times and laughed out loud as well. Excellent book.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked it because it made me laugh and cry.
What about Cassandra Morris’s performance did you like?
Her voice and delivery.
Any additional comments?
The story is told from a little girl's perspective. I don't believe I have ever listened to a book told from a 4 year old's viewpoint. Interesting, enlightening and poignant.

The story is a childs tale of survival after her parents are killed by a bear on a camping trip. The story puts you in the mind of a child for its written from a child's perspective. The book is also read by a child which I did find hard to follow at times. As with five year olds their train of thought jumps all over the place, so does the story. I really had to hang on to each sentence which was a bit donting.
There were several parts of the story which threw me for a loop, like how throughout the entire book the child called the bear "a big black dog". What 5 year old who carries her favorite stuffed teddy bear everywhere doesn't know what a bear looks like? Yet she knew of Jesus and that he was a carpenter, what plants were ediable and how to canoe.
It was a gripping tale and I am glad I bought it. People magazine had recommended it and it had been on my list of reads for a year or more. It was somewhat enjoyable, but not a favorite and I would never reread it.
