If you like, and really miss, Tony Hillerman's books this will help fill that void though I figured out who did it very early in the story. I think with more practice she will get the hang of mystery books and I have to add that her understanding of Navajo people is right on so I have to give her a high score on that.The narrator really helped in with keeping my interest in this book.
My favorite character is Bernie Chee. She is a smart woman while retaining her Navajoness. I would like to see more Bernie in future books with just a little Jim and Joe.
The Navajo mother who I think was named Mrs Begay?
The above non-named mother made me smile. She reminded me of all very strong mothers.
I hope Anne continues to follow in her father's footsteps, but, with the caveat that she use more of her own insights into these characters. Mr. Hillerman cannot be replicated and he was able to write from a male perspective, Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, and now it is time for the Navajo female's perspective. Women see things differently than men and work their way to a conclusion differently which I think Bernie did quite well.
Even though it is a history lesson, with hints of Social Anthropology, it is great for those of us who are nerds and love this type of book.
For anyone this makes ancient history more palatable and a great deal more enjoyable.
Egyptian life was very interesting.
Definitely not. This is not that type of book but I certainly wanted to finish the epochs.
