    Well that was hard to read. Even though that guy was a POS, and I wanted to hate him, I just felt he had to live after all he'd been through. Amputating yourself to death, only SK could draw up that one.

    I had to laugh when he sang the Big Mac song. "Two all beef patties, special sauce..."

    I loved reading the story though it was a little difficult. I love difficulty to a point and of a type. Survivor Type is expertly written tongue-in-cheek which makes it more, er, palatable.

    Oh, me too. I must re-read. That one doesn't leave ya.

    I think it won a dollar baby? Moderator Marsha would know.

    I don't know if this is it. :hopelessness:

    It's an American classic. Should be taught in elementary schools alongside Tom Sawyer.

    Loved this story, one of my favorites.

    My 3rd grade son recently read a book called Hatchet. He loved it, and I read it too since he liked it so much, wanted to see what it was about. all I could think was I can't wait til he's a little older, and I can let him read Survivor Type.
