Publisher's Summary

Prolific writer James Lincoln Collier collaborates with his brother Christopher, a distinguished historian, and the Revolutionary War comes alive in this contemporary classic for young adults. Here is a war with no clear-cut loyalties - dividing families, friends, and towns. Young Tim Meeker watches his 16-year-old brother Sam go off to fight with the Patriots while his father remains a reluctant British Loyalist in the Tory town of Redding Ridge, Connecticut. Over the course of the war, Tim learns that life teaches some bitter lessons and doesn't guarantee clear answers. My Brother Sam Is Dead is a stirring, probing tale full of action and suspense, putting readers right into the heart of the Revolutionary War.

    "Just kept listening"

    I'm rating this for my 12 year old son who just kept listening to the book. He loves historical fiction and this book was no exception. I downloaded it on a whim for him and he sat for close to the entire time just listening to it! 4 hours of grabbing a 12 year old boys attention says a lot in my opinion.

    "Another excellent book this year"

    We loved this book as a family and loved the narrator. Voice that is easy to understand and interesting to follow along with the book. We had several great conversations about this book.

    This book was part of my son's 7th grade reading list. Many of the kids were not prepared for this subject. Further, the teacher was ill-equipped to handle the ensuing emotions. This book would be more useful as a psychologist's tool for adolescents with specific circumstantial issues.

    the story was good, although narrow. quality of audio was poor. all in all decent for a younger crowd or someone who era specific books (war books)

    "My Brother Sam is great!"
    What did you love best about My Brother Sam Is Dead?

    The themes and the easy read not to mention how well it ties in with 8th grade history

    Would you be willing to try another book from James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier ? Why or why not?


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    A bit to excited but clearly read

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


    Any additional comments?

    I would purchase from Audible.com again.

    "Good story, some profanity."

    Good telling of a family during the Revolutionary War era. Had some foul language that made it not suitable for listening by my 9 year old.

    "tough listen!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I teach this book, so I picked this up in order to keep it fresh in my mind while driving. However, I find the reader's voice to be so shrill that I can't listen for more than a few minutes!

    What did you like best about this story?

    Great storyline.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?


    Did My Brother Sam Is Dead inspire you to do anything?

    I teach it to my 7th grade.
