Enchanting, magical, everlasting
All of it.
A true story, such a treat to listen too. Like being a child again and having someone paint a magical world for you with words.
It is not a story full fanciful and fantastical magic, it is a story that could almost be real... almost.
Absolutely entranced for most of it. Could have used more editing at end. But still highly recommend if for good storytelling, a meditation on nature, desire, and domesticity vs the wild.
Loved this book--Eowyn Ivey creates a world, and keeps you wondering what is real or imaginary. She makes a lot of points about life and relationships without making it seem like work. A beautiful tale that I didn't want to end. Wonderfully narrated, as if it were the author's inner voice. READ OR LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!!!!
This book was very detailed and made you feel like you were in Alaska with the characters. The reader did a great job with bringing each character to "life" and giving them their own voice.
Descriptive, tragic and loving.
Faina- she's wild, mysterious and tragic.
I have not.
I'd say no, as I couldn't listen to 11 hours in one sitting. Even if I had the time, this isn't one I'd read all at once, it needs time to be thought over and considered.
I really enjoyed the descriptions in this book- it really places you in the wilds of Alaska, and see all the scenery, clothing and animals.
Fascinating. Though well read there were times I could not distinguish one characters voice from another. A really good listen!
This book is more like a fairy tale to be honest. Maybe even written in parts like a poem. I thought it was lovely, and timeless.
It might not be for everyone but I'm glad I took the time to listen to it.
Loved the ferns in the hair and the colors and the sounds and the crunching of the snow and everything about living in the wilderness. very well done I could almost feel the cold. Did not predict the ending either.
