I thought that the story seemed a bit far-fetched at first, until I read that it was based on a true story! That is almost impossible to believe, but apparently this woman did survive this trek across the wilderness. Can be a little hard to read at times (i.e. the descriptions of the hardships she faced), but it is an amazing story of this woman's fortitude and sense of direction! :-)
I'm 'hooked' on the Matthew Corbett books, that's for sure! I loved the first book and really enjoyed the second. Matthew is like a young Sherlock Holmes, except more likeable. The story was interesting and a fun read.
If you are a fan of the Mary Russell books, you will really like this one as the lead character is like a young 'Sherlock Holmes'. The story was well-paced, fun and suspenseful. I had a tough time putting this one down! A good read!
I enjoyed listening to this book. Good story with the ability to make you think of the human race as a tiny little speck hurtling into an unknown future. I would recommend it for lovers of sci-fi!
I really enjoyed this book. I liked the story and the writing style. The narration was well done as well. Interesting to get such a wonderful insight into Japan at the start of the 19th century.
