Hugh Glass isn’t afraid to die. He’s done it once already.
Rocky Mountains, 1823. The trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. Hugh Glass is one of the most respected men in the company, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker.But when a scouting mission puts Glass face-to-face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive. Two men from the company are ordered to remain with him until his inevitable death. But, fearing an imminent attack, they abandon Glass, stripping him of his prized rifle and hatchet.
As Glass watches the men flee, he is driven to survive by one all-consuming desire: revenge. With shocking grit and determination, he sets out on a three-thousand-mile journey across the harsh American frontier, to seek revenge on the men who betrayed him.
The Revenant is a remarkable tale of obsession and the lengths that one man will go to for retribution.

You shall perish by my hands

Would you consider the audio edition of The Revenant to be better than the print version?

Yes! Jeff Harding makes a difference, he is by far my favorite reader and even surpassed my expectations by giving flesh and bone to some characters speaking French.

What did you like best about this story?

The historical and geographic context , most of the characters . Hugh Glass who will give you shivers and cold sweats . Vengeance is the most powerful tool to keep you alive but it comes with a price.

What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Already have commented on that .

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not to that extent.On some occasions, I couldn't help laughing or drifting away, though.

Any additional comments?

Try as you might you do not control your fate you don’t get to choose at the end this is in part what the story is about. Buy it and uncover some depth of the human soul.

Much better narrator.

The narrator on this print is much easier to listen to than the other print.
Holter Graham is the narrator for the other copy and I found his narration slow, over dramatic and uninteresting.
Jeff Harding's narration is much more fitting to this book and it was cheaper than the other edition.
I'm not sure what the difference is between the two books but this one is much easier to follow along.

Movie could outshine the book

For starters I haven't seen the film - yet. It's on my list and the book hasn't changed my resolve to see it.

The Revenant focuses on one man and the tough environment he finds himself abandoned in. The setup is good, the characters are believable and the plot is solid but for whatever reason I found myself disappointed with the sum of the parts. Perhaps the build up was better than the climax and thus left me feeling like it could have ended better.

Something Hollywood might address?

Book before the film

I made the mistake of listening to this book prior to watching the film. Consequently the film barely held my attention! The bonus superb, particularly the authors noted st the end telling the truth behind the story.
