    I have always loved the original book and as complete as the ending was for the original book I couldn't quite figure out how this one would be a continuation of that one. So it was a bit of a surprise that the background was basically the same while the cast of characters for the most part also stayed the same although sadly Freddy never showed up. Unfortunately this book was too much a repeat of the first including for the majority of the portion of the book the same emotional tension that cou [...]

    River Thunder is the exhilarating sequel to Downriver. Troy wants to prove that he has changed, so he plans a trip back to the Grand Canyon for another rafting adventure and invites his friends: Jessie, Adam, Star, Rita, and Pug. This time, Troy promises, the trip will not be just about him. Jessie, who strongly disliked Troy on the last trip, has second thoughts about coming, but eventually she decides not to turn down the adventure of a lifetime. Unlike last time, Troy acquires the proper Nati [...]

    I found out about this book somehow- I always liked the first book Downriver and had no idea that there was a sequel. I knew it probably wasn't the greatest idea considering it would probably smash my nostalgia and do things I didn't want it to, but I picked it up to read anyway.Suffice to say I expected this book to tie up some of the loose ends from the first- namely what became of Troy, the unresolved issues between him and the rest of the gang, and to see something more develop between Jessi [...]

For Jessie, the river is the ultimate test. Does she hav [...]

    This sequel to Down River was not as good as the first one by a long stretch. I just thought it was a little bit confusing because of how much they used the Canyon, Boat, and River terms. Also the plot just wasn't as good and didn't seem as thrilling and on edge as the last book it just kind of seemed like it was just the crappy left overs of Down River. The one thing that stuck with me after the book was the imagery the author used I though it was pretty good for a book like this because it wal [...]

    Quotable:No matter what happened downriver, this was pure magic. I remembered how much I was in love with moving water. What a feeling, taking a raft through a rapid. There’s just nothing like it. I wanted more and more and I was definitely going to have my chance. One rapid down, a hundred and fifty-nine to go.I’m not ready to get involved like that, not with you or anybody. What I’m looking forward to is getting out on my own… inventing my own life. Don’t take this wrong, but I feel [...]

    Jessie and the rest of the crew see Troy from the last trip. They don't like Troy already. He invites them to a cafe where he admits that Adam isn't coming, and he wrote the letters to everyone. Jessie was furious, as with the rest of her friends. Even though they were angry; they agreed to ateend the rafting trip. The next day everyone is gearing up, and getting in their rafts. I like this book; its exciting. Thers always something going on. For example they're getting ready to raft the Colorad [...]

    Read this YAL book as part of sub job teaching.Liked it!Follow-up to Downriver.Tracks the "crew" of an Outward Bound-like program as they are summoned, supposedly by their former leader Al, but really by Troy, who has hoodwinked all of them.They course through the CO River/Grand Canyon, hitting hard water all the time, and discovering alot about themselves - and Troy.Supposedly based on actual trips Hobbs and his wife did.Full of realistic detail and enough drama to appeal to younger readers.

    In my opinion, River Thunder by Will Hobbs was a great novel! I liked the plot of the book and how the events played out. I also liked the external conflict that most of the characters in the in novel faced. The huge external conflict that they faced was major amounts of water being released into the river from the dam which made the river more challenging to whitewater raft. I enjoyed this conflict being in the novel because it played a major role in the characters physical and mental well bein [...]

    Great sequel to Downriver! There are not that many adventure novels with female leads that aren't in the fantasy genre- but this and Downriver are great ones! The one issue I had with this one is that there are some technological references that really date the book- which is too bad b/c I was actually thinking that this book was "timeless" until I got to one chapter with these references- ugh. Oh well- it is still a great read if you like adventures. :)

    I thought this book was not very good. I didn't like it because it didn't have enough action in the beginning to catch my attention. Later in the book more action comes like when Jessie fell out of the boat and almost drowns. Jessie does not like this one guy from the past year of rafting. His name was Troy. That is what I think of this book

    On the suggested summer reading list for students. Started to read it and realized it was a sequel, so I had to find the first book and read that first to be able to understand what they were talking about. Would have been missing something had I not read that first book, which isn't always the case with sequels.

    I remember reading " River Thunder " by Will Hobbs about a year ago or something, but it was actually pretty good. There's lots of adventure, twists, and more that makes you to want to keep reading it.

    Because this author has first hand experience rafting the Colorado River the book was very entertaining and provided an insight to the thrill that a river can dish out.

    An adventurous read of a group of friends white water rafting the Grand Canyon. A bit repetitious in part.

    its a good book adn i like itit has adventure, romance and freindship in it i read it traveling and was a life saver

    5 star rating was in part because I loved the adventure of the river and the feeling of being there. I also realize Hobbs wrote of struggling with a controlling person pretty darn well.

    A well-written sequel to the book Downriver. The author includes just about all of the literary devices! Highly recommend this book to everyone ages 12+.

    Will Hobbs does a pretty good river book. It is just too hard to match 30,000 miles of stories that I have lived.
