This book would be a better read than it is a listen, especially with this poor narrator who sounds more like a computer than a person.
The narrator seems to pause at the end of every line as she reads and has little inflection
The story is a good one, although it jumps from place to place in the initial chapters before the young women eventually find themselves in Colorado. What is unexpected is the detailed descriptions of historical events during the period which give the story a depth that most such stories lack.
Yes. I loved the story
Depicts the life of a boy raised in Nebraska, as was Willa Cather, and so it is slightly autobiographical, but it lets the reader know about the early days of the Midwest and how life was there for immigrant families
No, but this was very well read.
No, its too long for one sitting, great for a long car trip.
I would recommend all of Cather's books. They are great to listen to because the stories are so well told.
