And here, at the end, Bear and Otter will be tested like they’ve never been before.
There’s a knock at the door from a little girl who has nowhere else to go.
There’s a phone ringing, bringing news they do not expect.
There’s a brother returning home after learning how to stand on his own.
As these moments converge, all of their lives will change forever.
Beginning in Bear, Otter, and the Kid and continuing in Who We Are and The Art of Breathing, TJ Klune has told a saga of family and brotherhood, of love and sacrifice. In this final chapter, the events of the past pave the long and winding road toward a future no one could have imagined.
This was a nice conclusion to this series. Bear and Otter finally got the chance to do something for themselves after so many years of selflessness. It was great to see everyone again and see how their stories continued.
It was easy to connect with the characters as we’ve been seeing them for years. Which brings me to the one thing that I didn’t enjoy about this story, the first third of the book pretty much recapped the first three books and I guess I didn’t expect that; maybe a little but not to that extent. I loved seeing Bear and Otter grow their family and really grow into their own some more.
Sean Crisden did a wonderful job narrating this story. I was able to connect with the characters feel their emotions in his reading as he used different voices for the characters. His voice changes so much you really get to see the differences with the characters even if I didn’t like the whiny quality to some of the voices he used..
Cover art by Paul Richmond is very nice and follows the basic pattern from the series.
