I never read the book but I saw the movie many, many years ago. It was almost a new story for me because it has been so long.
Even though I knew the final outcome, I listened to almost the entire book non-stop to hear what would happen next.
I was unwilling to stop listening because I wanted the children's pain to be over. By not listening, it was like I was prolonging their imprisonment.
It is a very disturbing story that I hope has no basis in reality.
It is never a waste of time to listen to any book in Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon Series, but you miss so much of the beauty of the backdrop for each story (the National Park), that is it almost a crime to abridge it. Hold out for the unabridged version.
Hard to compare this book to the others I have listen too (all of them) because I always opt for the unabridged if available and the abridged version disappoints.
Yes, but not based on this story. I have read all her other Detective Decker books.
The dialog between Jasmine and Gabe was boring, uninteresting, unbelievable and for the most part, irrelevant to the story which dragged.
Gabe, when not with Jasmine.
This story reminded me more of a teen book except for some of the more explicit descriptions near the end which I would not recommend to teen readers. The story did not grab me and if I had been reading it, I would not have finished it at all.
