It's like listening to a grandfather telling a tale. You want to move slowly, or not at all and absorb the story. This was good as a historical novel, as well as a murder mystery. Very enjoyable. I highly recommend for those who want a slowly unfolding story. Very relaxing.
This book seems disjointed at first, but stick it out, it has all of the parts of a classic who-done-it.
Michelle slips into and out of suicidal depression rather magically, which is my only problem with the characterization. Otherwise, it's a great listen.
With attention to building detail, suspense and drama, this book was a delight. The clues were all there, but as a really good mystery, I was not able to figure out "who done it". The story is slow-paced, with good reason. It takes time to flesh out the characters and David does it well. I highly recommend this book for those who have the time and patience for a great read.
This book had real potential, but ended up falling short for me. I enjoyed the descriptions of the main character learning some tribal cooking, celebrations and ceremonies but the plot just didn't add up at the conclusion. The reader made me feel as though I was listening to a narration, instead of transporting me into the book.
The plot (and especially the narrator) combine to make a novel that is exceptional . The narrator's voice lulls your mind and ears. Meanwhile, the story unfoldes, and you cannot wait for the next chapter. A must listen!
