Overcoming obstacles together
I think she illustrated lots of variety in her voices for the varied characters.
It took me awhile to go from the intro to the meat of the book.
Once I was into the story, I was captivated.
Someone who's looking for a thriller would possibly enjoy this.
not if I remember how much I've disliked this title
possibly the child, though I've yet to figure out his personality.
There was a lot of terror and blood.
Perhaps this becomes a good story once you've slogged your way thru the terror and confusion.
Someone who is interested in the past antics of the incredibly rich English might find this more enthralling than I did.
The genre is mystery, which I enjoy, but I'll avoid this author in future.
it has a bit of entertainment value
The story was rambling and hard to make sense of.
In essence, I think the story line needed improvement; it seemed to drag on forever before anything came to conclusion.
a Cleo Coyle mystery
she does different voices very well and she gave the impression of being interested in an uninteresting tale!
it was fairly useful in inducing sleep!
I won't seek out other titles by this author
Excellent characters, tale.
sorry, don't remember
I like hearing different accents; her's are splendid!
sorry, don't remember.
Keep on writing, Maeve!!
The story line was very weak and I was very tired of listening to long sex scenes.
It has reemphasized the need for more sub-genres: I'd call this one "Harlequin-like Romance."
She's pretty weak on pronunciation: wan and frisonne come immediately to mind.
None of them. I'd actually flesh out supporting characters and cut the sex scenes down to about 10% of what is included now.
Glad I didn't pay much for this title!
Finding the line between believable and fanciful was often difficult. It isn't an easy listen.
"this genre?" In my opinion, it would be very helpful to have a few more genres which one could use to search out the type of book the listener enjoys.
Yes, to turn off my MP3 and watch some TV!
This is a fairly good story incorporating a character of unusual intelligence.
Yes! I experienced the range of emotion which one hopes to find in a book, as well as in real life. The wide range of characters was excellent, as was the depth of their souls.
I'm considering another Clare Vanderpool title after hearing this one.
No. The characters are pretty flat and some seem without souls.
Okay for material.
It got me through some housework, having nothing better to listen to.
I'm finished with this author.
of course! Who doesn't enjoy hearing a story? The accents are wonderful and add lots of depth.
This was a great mystery; one mystery set inside several others.
Stephanie Daniel's performance was great!
Profound interest...I could hardly bear interruptions while I was listening!
Yes, because the accents of the various characters are such a wonderful addition to the printed words.
Muushuum (sp?) and the old grandmother. Their riotously funny observations and descriptions of sexual acts are very different than the staid notions and remarks of old "white" folks.
Muushuum's stories about all sorts of things hold such depth of understanding that they will stay with me for a long time.
The mother's withdrawal after a traumatic event reminded me of my own depressive times. And this portrayal of a contemporary "Indian" society helped me to understand the students who were so incomprehensible to me many years ago in Albuquerque, NM.
I'd recommend this title to any teacher or counselor working with students from reservations.
