I got this book for my granddaughter, but listened to it myself first. I became engrossed with the characters and story. Louise Erdrich brings to this story the same sense of place and depth of character that she brings to her books for adult readers. Enjoyable and worthwhile.
Four Queens is a very "listenable" account of the lives of four sisters from Provence. I liked the narrator (who on a few occasions went into dramatic overdrive). I'm going to the south of France soon and I picked up some valuable history along with enjoying a well-told story.
Once the groundwork has been laid, the main characters take over and the Big Year finishes with high drama. I rooted for the underdog and am still astonished at the sheer physical endurance of the three men in pursuit of the Holy Grail of birding. A fun, interesting, sometimes heart-stopping "read."
