I chose to listen to this book in preparation for my 3-week trip to Russia. My prior understanding of Russia had been picked up from Dr. Zhivago and remembering the Cold War when Krushchev was their leader. Rutherfurd has done an excellent job of putting Russian history into story form. In fact, after the trip, I listened to the book a second time because now I can put some things in perspective with what I had experienced when I was there. What a great learning experience!
I truly enjoy listening to Craig Johnson's books online. Guidall's narration provides very realistic interpretation of the characters.
Classes in our schools have not emphasized enough how difficult this time was in our history. If I taught American History, this would be a required read for all students. It makes me wonder if we aren't close to creating an agriculture disaster again by forcing farms to use genetically modified seeds. However, that would be another story.
I had a hard time getting into the story at the beginning, but now I am hooked and want to pick up with the next book.
Entertaining, great visualization
The sheriff, of course.
I always enjoy reading and listening to Craig Johnson's Longmire stories.
The presentation of the story was fine; however, I am not sure what the readability level of this book would be. I believe that it would be very appropriate for middle school students. The story was very predictable and "pollyannaish".
This entire book should be removed from Audible for adults and put in the children's section.
Craig Johnson writes in a way that makes it easy to visualize what is happening in the story and the surrounding terrain.
George Guidall sounds like a craggy old cowboy from Wyoming and seems to fit the part he is reading.
The story made me think that rabbits as well as other animals do communicate with one another and have a social hierarchy.
I liked the story so much that I bought it for my grandsons.
