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.
I haven't looked at the print version, but I really enjoyed the Ms. Monk's voices. She differentiated the characters and made each come alive.
The few times in the middle of the story when Mabel and Jack truly connect made the story magical. These characters were in a difficult marriage but you truly rooted for them.
She used a narrators voice so well to describe the place and allow me to choose what I enjoyed but she voiced the characters, especially the bossy neighbor, with unique inflections that truly reflected their characters.
I listen to audiobooks when I drive and when I hike.
A great story - a little history, a little fantasy, a little romance, a little reality, and a lot of humanity. I really enjoyed this story.
I found it very enjoyable but I seldom listen to a book more than once.
The snow child.
The performance was very well done...I found myself well into the characters.
I would say that the story and narration was well done. I would consider purchasing another book by E. Ivey.
This story focuses around Mabel and Jack who move to Alaska due to the heartache of infertility. The story lines contain the relationship between Mabel and Jack, how they differ in their own grief, the healing that comes from their neighbors, and their tender love for the snow child, This is not a light, happy book. However, I will remember it for a long time and that signifies a great book to me. Yes, I would recommend this book.
Mable and Jack - Childless couple in Alaska in 1920's
Esther and George - neighbors
Derek - Esther and George's son
The Snow Child
Her performance was fine, it did not stand out but I was able to focus on the story and her voice did not distract me.
I loved the narrator's voice and the descriptive story of homesteaders in Alaska circa 1920s, the uncertainty and certainy of life in the wilderness, and the weaving of a fairy tale in the background of unrelented loss and love of a child.
I fell in love with the characters in this story -- hardy, brave, and very true with all the human pitfalls and conditions of the human race. Very believable subjects.
I did not necessarily like the way the book ended as I wanted the fairy tale to continue. It is a somber book in some regard.
Not only does Debra Monk have a clear and pleasant voice, she also reads this book at the PERFECT speed.
Yes, when Jack and Mabel finally talk about the baby they loss, the burial and naming.
Although this book is predictable, it is written very well and presented by a great narrator. I loved the families individually and collectively. The story is warm, spirited and lovely. This was a nice change for me as I usually order mysteries and thrillers!
