the narration was wearing on me a bit during the first half, wondering if this would be as good as white tiger, but I was completely hooked in the second.
what a life she lived. last few chapters made me yearn for an editor, but still an impressive work. narration was fine.
ok, so there are a couple of soap opera twists, but they don't take away from the drama and excellent storytelling.
great performance, good murder mystery. and oddly therapeutic, after having had many confusing conversations with a parent in the early stages of dementia.
I was hesitant about both the narrator and the book when I started about 50 hours ago, but now will be sad to see it end. I am finding that with classic novels, particularly those where class distinctions provide much of the context (Middlemarch, David Copperfield), a good narrator fills out the story in a way my own reading may not have.
beautiful amalgam of poetry, people, story. sort of a goofy ending, but she had me by then.
so I have a soft spot for Laura Ingalls and all the women who made it out west without the benefit of an airplane and an iphone, so picked this one up as easy summer read. impressed by how well researched and unexpected the story turned out, and I enjoyed the reading.
what a story, even more powerful when told by the author who lived it (and, as it happens, has a beautiful speaking voice)
