Just finished reading The Revenant by Michael Punke. It’s quite an exciting tale and I can understand why it’ll soon be a movie. It’s an interesting fictional take on the historical figure of Hugh Glass. The author certainly did his research regarding the details and environment of the early frontier during that time period (1820s). While the book did place Hugh Glass into quite a few perils (with subsequent salvations from those perils) that began to border on the contrived, I still enjoyed the overall story arc and unexpected finale. I’d recommend it for anyone’s reading list. Certainly read it before the movie comes out!
