Only if the friend is really interested in historical events in the U.S.
Yes. I think she covered the history in a masterful way.
Patchy. Hollow Woman's accent seemed to change a little. I wasn't sure what it was supposed to me.
The best part of this book was the history. It was really interesting to the learn about the Pecos people and the pueblos because I had never heard this story before and I think it's important to know. However, I didn't find the present day characters compelling. The relationship between the Grandfather and Hollow Woman was dynamic over the length of the book but I couldn't get into it. It just seemed a bit shallow. This may have been because of the format of the book and the paranormal aspects. I couldn't reconcile the paranormal with the present day aspect of the book. I think that it may have been the way Hollow Woman didn't believe and was scornful of grandfather's magic and there was no early evidence about the truth in grandfather's magic. I just didn't find it believable. The flitting between the past in the trace-states made it difficult to keep track of what was going on in an audiobook. The audiobook format may not have been the best for this book. Simply because it moved a little slowly and there were inconsistencies in the voicing of Hollow Woman in terms of accent.In the end, while I liked the idea of this book and the history was great to learn, the fictional novel aspect of the story was lacking and was sometimes slow.
