I was enjoying this story until it got to the underlying story involving children. Then it became unbearable. I like this author, and I love horror stories, but this one just made me sick at heart.
I've listened to both books by Simpson, this one and "Crow in Stolen Colors". I love them both and look forward to more. The author combines good plots with well drawn characters grinding out a life in Alaska's harsh and beautiful environment. Both stories weave in bits of information on Alaskan history and art, and the tough individuals drawn to life in in such a splendid, difficult place. I think the reader's voice is perfect for the people in these stories, a bit harsh and individualistic. I know reader preference is highly subjective, but I can't imagine someone else reading these stories.
