Reviews - What do customers think about Irish Red?

Simple and compelling portraiy of the Wintapi  Sep 8, 2005
Some authors just have a knack for bringing a natural setting to life, and Jim Kjelgaard is one of those rare authors.

The story is a by-the-numbers tales of survival in the wild, pitting the initially-inept Mike and woodsman Danny up against a host of natural dangers, including a mammoth snowstorm and a bloodthirsty Puma.

The writing is clean and simple, and the events are exciting enough to hold the interest of the reader.

I think that Kjelgaard has written better books in this vein, but it is nice to see some continuity between these kinds of books. The relationship of Irish Red to the ever-popular Big Red lets us experience Big Red all over again.

I do recommend this book, but not as an introduction to this author. Snow Dog or Big Red are better books to cut your teeth on; this book is a nice return to an established world.
Childhood Memories  Oct 23, 2003
I read this book when I was about 10 years old and I still remember how much I loved it! I read several of his books and somehow remembered (25 years later) that the author's first name was Jim and last name started with a K. Now that my kids are learning to read, I wanted to share with them some of my favorite books, so I did a search and found it quite easily. I don't remember the details of the book, but the fact that I remember it fondly after all these years, is quite a testament!!!
A Classic  Aug 9, 2003
I myself have not read this book, BUT my ten year old daughter has read it about 20 times! She keeps coming back to this book and she is a very avid reader having read many books including all of the Harry Potter and the Red Wall series.
Irish-ific  Oct 10, 2002
Irish Red is known as a Jim Kjelgaard classic, it is supposed to be one of his best books ever, I feel the same way about it. Irish Red contains not only suspense but it also has plenty of action. Old Red has fathered a few pups to Sheila and Mike is the runt. What he lacks in size he makes up for in spirit and effort. Although he may lose a pig, and get into the garbage, Mike helps to save the day. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who thinks that the outdoors is an interesting place, if not you probably won't enjoy it. This book is for people of all ages to enjoy, so read on.
Irish Red review  Dec 8, 2000
In my opinion, I liked the story because it was really interesting. I like reading books about dogs and about adventure in nature. It is fascinating to read about the out-of-doors and man's relationship with dogs. The only part I didn't like about the book was how the book ended. The ending could have been better, but I think Mr. Kjelgaard was setting the stage for the next book in the sequel.
