I am new to Jacqueline Carey and was quite delighted with the story. The pace of the story was perfect, the characters interesting, the magic / mythology fascinating. I also quite loved the themes of passion and mindfulness through breathing ("the way"). I think that there are a lot of people in our culture who could benefit from a little more attention to both!!
Very very long. Good story - interesting characters, but omg, it's too long!!
What a wonderful story to listen to! The various voices of the women narrators were genuine and engaging, allowing you to enter into their lives and experience the attitudes of the time. The pace of the book was perfect, encouraging just a little more listening at the end of each chapter.
It's wonderful to hear E.B. White read his own work. My kids loved listening to him as much as I did - and picked up on many of the messages of the story. Weeks later, when on the swing, my 5 year old quoted the book "children hold on tighter than you think they do". Love it!
