Say something about yourself!
This was an unexpected find and I'm so glad I decided to download and listen. I was totally lost inside the story. The characters were well developed, the descriptions of scenes made the story come alive, and it was simply an excellent listen. Debra Monk did a wonderful job of narrating. Hopefully, this author will continue to write. If this was the first offering, I can only imagine what holds for the future.
The Snow Child is a whimsical, fairy-tale like story about a couple stuggling to make a life in the Alaskan Frontier in the 1920's. The story is melancholy and beautiful, and the audio performance is good.
The emotions and character interactions were as vivid and delicate as a snowflake.
Much of the book had a grown-up Hans Christian Anderson fairytale quality.
The author and narrator made believing in a snow maiden-come-to-life so easy and natural that I found myself as skeptical as the characters until Jack's encounter with the girl and her father high in the mountains. I smiled and cried from beginning to end, then cried again when it ended. What a beautiful story!
There's always time for reading
There's an element of mysticism, the characters are well developed, if a bit formulaic
She's a good reader
While I found the book a bit tedious at times, it moves along fairly well and ends nicely. It's a great story about the power of children, about being childless, and about a couple who believes in the power of love, despite the odds. A sweet, simple book... not a literary great, but enjoyable.
Magical, Layered, Satisfying
Mabel was my favorite character in The Snow Child. Her transformation from a lost soul to a strong and centered woman was the core of the story.
The narrator told the story well. She voiced each character distinctly.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Snow Child. Weaving the folk tale into the events of the story was an interesting literary device. The characters were well drawn and believable. The reader, like Mabel, could not help but wonder if the child was real or not. I listen in the car on the way to work. I looked forward to the next installment every morning.
It was just so...different. Not sure what else to say. It did seem like every chapter began about the same way...describing the weather. It was a little redundant even though I know she was trying to paint a picture for us...
Only if it was recommended by others.
Slow, soft, sleepy
Only out of morbid curiosity and if it was at Redbox. :)
Debra Monks voice was soft and comfortable but I had tot put the speed at 1 1/2 just to stay awake while listening.
The most memorable moments for me were  the wedding day, especially the wedding dress and  two when the snow child returned to the snow
This is such a magical, wholesome, beautiful story. It is well worth a listen!
I like audio better than print for most books because I enjoy listening more than reading
All of the characters were so well developed, Mable, Jack, Esther, and Garrett were my favorites
Esther, because she tells like it is with humor
I can't wait for another book from Ewoyn
This is a sweet, touching story about a childless couple and a mysterious little girl who comes to them when they need it most.
