Stop using so much of the "F" words and other similar profanities. It cheapens the character and prevents development of a multi-faceted main character. It has been my experience, when a person or writer resorts to gross, profane and nasty explainitives in order to get a shock factor response...well that is not intelligent use of pros.
yes, as long as it is not similar to the format used in Tululla Rising
It really helps to visualize in one's mind what Tululla might look like and what to lesser characters might be like physically,
Absolutely ! It doesn't matter if you have childern or not, if you want to make any child feel SPECIAL..then give this book to the parents and child. Nancy Tillman writes to celebrate how wonderful each little soul truely is
The child"s name I substituted for the part "the wind whispered your name" Christopher,Christopher (my little grandson)
This particular performance was perfect tone,to the point of melodious, I played it again and again.
Yes, and again and again. Whenever I had a challenging day at work or I wish to just feel happy, I listen to this book and speak along with Oriagh Cassidy's voice. It works every time and I go home feeling happy.
you will want to memorize this book, just as I have memorized all the Mother Goose rhymes as a child. This book is that kind.
Light entertainment reading, definitely for a snowy day or a beach day. The development of the story was done well with no areas of "waiting". I found myself really enjoying the main character, Wanderer "Wanda".
Allow Wanda actual intimacy with Ian. All these people in this unique cave, living as a community and there is no hint of intimacy to the degree that someone could have become pregnant. Nor is there any explanation as to why, the women did not concieve. The only one with childern actually came to the community with those childern
no I haven't @ this time
No extreme feelings other than enjoyment
The author now needs to write a second book..just don't leave Wanda in that small body of a young girl without developing her so she will eventually become Ian's wife or mate.
I think Adam Johnson writes with a clear eye and able to use words well to convey the starkness of the life of a young man in North Korea. At times I had to turn off the book and wait serveral days to resume it. It made my chest hurt. I will have to see what he writes about next before I will get another book.
Not for me. My skin is not tough enough
Yes ! actually that is what I am doing now..so many historical gems of the harsh life in the life of this young girl, I am finding new ones that I missed with the first time I listened to it.
The infusion of evidence- based history in this story, gives the listener a view of what it might have been like living in the fortress of Masada before and during its siege.The strength of those 4 women as their separate lives began to intertwine each other in their sufferings and joys...they became stronger as the men seem to remain stagnant in the face of such adversity and cruelty..
When Yael helped the slave- man from the North to escape and actually gave him her talisman of protection.: I believed they grew to love each other for a time. Also, the supernatural, releasing of the lion kept by the Roman
I would even recommend this book to high school students, male and female. Otherwise, this book can be enjoyed by an adult that loves biblical history.
