It has become one of may favourite books. It is very interesting and easy to understand and the arguments are backed up with internationally recognized scientific reports and studies.
This is not a character driven book but if you believe in Gaia, then she is my favourite character
I most enjoyed:
- the tracing of the history of our species, we are often referred to as the upright apes in the book. I found it fascinating to learn about the other species of the genus Homo that came before us and how the different migrations around the planet formed our predecessors and us.
- the outlining of the positive things that are being done and can be done to ensure our future and that of our planet
Are we smart enough to save ourselves and our planet?
I like this book so much I bought it twice: first as a paperback when it first came out then I decided to buy it again as an audio book so that I could enjoy it again on a recent 10 hour interstate drive. The author has a pleasant voice and I got so much more from the book the second time round - enjoy.
From the very beginning the story is gripping and very well told, you engage with the main characters immediately. I found the story compelling, I just wanted to keep listening to find out what would come next.
It is fast paced, there is no chance you could get bored. I don't want to give too much of the story away but Jane increases her range of powers and uses them well. I also liked the explanations of some of the things touched upon in the earlier books.
Yes I have listened to all the Jane Yellowrock series and love Khristine's performances in all of them
There were a lot of heart in throat moments and lots of times I felt like cheering. Of all the books this one shows a more settled, self aware & self confidant Jane.
I look forward the next book in this series. Great story telling. I will give it a few weeks and listen to this book again
Yes, the story is well written, witty and fun.
The way the main character (Jane) is developed, how despite the fact that fate seems to conspire against her, her good sense and positive outlook gets her through. The exasperating family reminds me of my own, I think most people can relate.
Hmmm there are so many good scenes - I got a chuckle going when she had to deal with her benefactors nephew - especially when she snarled at him and his reaction.
I am a bit of a sucker for a happy ending so I think the meeting of minds with her sister - I don't want to go into too much detail and spoil the story. Family is a big part of these stories and all the stuff you have to put up with from the relatives.
Nice girl makes good - eventually!
Start with book 1 'Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs' it would be a shame to not enjoy the entire romp.
