I've read some of the books in this series, glad to find the beginning book, just to build the character. Will definitely continue listening to the series.
yes. I enjoyed this book b/c I could relate to main character. In stories like confessions of a shopaholic, i can not relate to the main character and the girl just pisses me off. In Track of the Cat, Anna Pigeon is awesome. I could imagine myself being Anna, and that makes the story much better!
Yes as I love Barbara Rosenblat as a reader. She can make reading the want adds sound good and she does and excellent job on Track of the Cat.
Disappointing. It fell flat after all that build up
Not paused so many times
Was a story with good potential, but went into too much detail where not needed and not enough when needed, ie the end
Interesting story but characters not particularly engaging.
I figured out the bad guys but not the manner of the crime pretty early on.
I am a former language arts teacher who likes to read and listen to audiobooks. I love a well-told story whether it is fiction or biography. I have a book on my iPod, iPad, and by my bed at all times!
A friend suggested Anna Pigeon mysteries and I have listened to several of them. I enjoy the settings of the National Parks and would recommend them to others who do.
I rarely figure out whodunit before Anna does. It keeps me thinking just like Anna throughout the book.
I enjoyed Barr's description of the lion cubs.
No -- I like to take my time.
This book was set in my home state of Texas, and that made it more enjoyable.
I love the Anna Pigeon series, and I am so glad to see so many of the books now available in audio.
In this first book, Anna and the stark, harsh beauty of the Guadalupe National Park are both well described and become quite real. Anna is someone you would really like to know, a strong and resourceful woman, able to overcome her personal sorrows as circumstances demand.
Barbara Rosenblatt is an excellent narrator. The only reason I give this reading less than 5 stars is that somehow she is just a bit more tart, more ascerbic, than my mental and audio images of Anna.
From Barbara Rosenblat, but not from Nevada Barr
More interraction with characters, less narration, more interesting story line.
Her performance was fine, she didn't have good material to work with.
Most of them...they were very long and drawn out.
I was excited to try another author with a series, but I won't be reading any more of her books.
Really nice start to a wonderful series of books by Nevada Barr. Wonderful performance by Ms. Rosenblat.
I thought this was reasonably good. The story line appealed because it was a bit unusual in its setting and there was a female protagonist as the "gumshoe". I would describe it as easy listening. Not very challenging but it did draw me along for most of the time. I am damning with faint praise again but I thought the narrator was pretty good. She did seem to deliver some of the more dramatic lines in a slightly stilted fashion. Without giving anything away, I was a bit disappointed with the final act of the book. It felt completely implausible to me, even within the logic of the book as a whole - the kind of thing you would expect in a Charlie's Angels episode.
