Telling how Anna came to be a ranger - events onlyh hinted at in the series
the rope event
I have read almost all of Nevada Barr's books and I appreciate the theme of Anna Pigeon being a federal employee. As a federal employee myself for another land agency, I can understand some of the similarities in the storyies. However, I do sometimes wonder how one character, Anna, can have so many near death experiences.
It was also hard for me to go back into Anna's beginning as a Park Ranger, after I had already read all of her other adventures. I had trouble feeling like the Anna in "The Rope" was the same Anna in the earlier stories.
This books comes alive in my mind with the detailed writing.
Love her voice.
The description of the wilderness.
I love a mystery.
Because I love the tales of Ranger Anna Pigeon, this audiobook is special. It gives the readers of her tale an close understanding of what makes her who she is.
When Anna wakes up, and finds herself trapped at the bottom of a dry natural well, naked, without supplies and no clear memory of why she is in there, the process she goes through to get her memory back, and develope her courage to get out of there, you really see the beginings of what made Anna the way she is now..
She for me is the voice of Anna Pigeon.
Oh yes. One just had to know more and more of the twists, turns and surprises in store for Anna. I loved every minute of in.
This story is the one we (of Barr's fans) have been waiting for. You have to read it to really understand Anna Pigeion.
Great book. Suspenseful--puts you on the edge of your seat and keeps you entwined in the story until the very end. Anna Pigeon books leave you wanting more and anxious for the next one!
Entertaining, spellbinding, and finalizing.
Yes. You are always waiting to find out how she is going to get out of each situation.
She is very good with her voice interpretation. You can easily identify each of the persons she is portraying.
I liked many moments.
I am sorry that Nevada Barr has completed this series.
My wife talked me into trying Nevada Barr on Audio because she has a dozen or more Barr paperbacks I can dive into if I like the author. I did NOT like the author.
The story was not credible. It dragged on and on without tying threads together and, in the end, never produced a satisfactory conclusion. It was as if Ms. Barr didn't really know who the antagonist was. Even my wife doesn't like THIS Barr novel!!
My first exposure. The reader was "OK" but couldn't overcome the pap she had to work with.
NO!! (But we need not worry about that prospect. NO ONE would EVER consider turning this one into a movie!!)
I'll try another Barr novel - - - sometime.
The first 5 hours she was down in a hole... and over 8 hours of describing scenery.
Awful, wearisome story.
More gratuitous, nasty violence against women. Sick of it.
Audible needs to expand their refund system.
Its nice to see where Anna started. I am glad that her character in later books has more backbone and seems smarter than she does in this book. I think it would have been better if this had actually been book one and then we could see Anna progress in her career.
It was good and had a good character twist. I would recommend it.
