The vivid writing brought me right through
The narrator did an amazing job conveying the peaceful feeling of Shora and the peaceful beliefs of the sharers.
I gave the story 4 out of 5 stars only because there was all this build up to a climax that was not very climactic.
I was really looking forward to reading this book. I like fantasy books with a strong female character. However I had a very hard time liking Green. There was no character development, the supporting characters were flat and I felt like there was no cohesion with the story line. The first part of the book describing Green's childhood was ok, but the rest went on and on and on. If I heard Green say one more time "What would Endurance do?" or "I want to go home.", I think i would scream. There are much better books out there. Try Mya by Richard Adams or the Kusheil series.
This was a well read and well written book. The characters grew throughout and were not stagnant boring, 2-d people. The premise was creative and thought provoking. I liked all the references to actual historical events and people.
