This is a beautiful love story in which the protagonists, incidentally, are terminally ill. It was engrossing and moving without ever descending into the maudlin. It felt as authentic and genuine as I, the mother of a child-survivor, could hope for. This is a book that is, in my opinion, not only worthy of reading but worth of being put on the reading list of high school English classes.
Yes! I love listening to this series over and over again.
Faith Hunter's series - Jane/Big Cat have courage and vulnerability equal to Mercy's.
They are seamless and genuine and allow the listener to enter into Mercy's world without interruption.
Ms Erdrich's prose takes you in to her world so intimately that you feel like you're actually sitting on the sidelines watching as the story unfolds. I loved every moment of being in that world. The life of a teenaged boy on an Indian reservation so unfamiliar - and yet the inevitable unfolding of the human drama so familiar, gives the story a resonance that lasts long after the last word. I also loved (as always) her mastery of the writing craft - there's not one extraneous or redundant word. A story I'll definitely read/listen to again.
Loved this well crafted, well written, thought provoking, and engaging take on a classic who-done-it. Well worth the listen. Wish there were more like it.
Loved this book - I miss Aralorn and Wolf already! I hope she'll write more about them. I don't listen to too many audio books over and over, but I do listen to Patrica Briggs' books over and over. Her characters are so well rounded, so full of life. If you like magical fantasy type books, this one won't disappoint.
This magical fantasy had unexpected depth and heart. The characters came alive in my imagination and while I didn't want it to end, I couldn't stop listening. It was even better than the first book - which was very good. And everyone knows how rare it is for a sequel to be better than the original! Worth every credit $! I can't wait for the next one.
I enjoyed the whole series. Each book has Samantha Moon confront a moral dilemma that asks the reader to consider, "what would I do?" This book's dilemma was a tough one! I think I would have chosen differently, but I'm glad I'll never have to make such a choice! I like that Samantha is older than other main characters in similar series, and that she has some life experience - and kids!
I'd recommend this book to anyone needing a total escape. It's light and fluffy and funny and very relaxing. I immediately purchased two more in the series and will probably end up buying them all.
Her voice suites the character's personality admirably.
I like series so, while this book could stand alone, I'm glad there's more fluff to follow.
I have trouble sleeping, and listening to books like this one calms and relaxes me so well that I rarely need to take a sleeping pill, for which I am very grateful!
