Too long. I kept falling asleep listening to this book
Haven't listened to any books by Eowyn Ivey
yes, nice voice
Yes, but still a 3 star
This book could use some more editing
It was a really good book, but would have to mention the profanity 'just in case' ...by the way, the narration made this book really come alive! Would buy other books narrated by Debra Monk!
Loved the interaction between Mable and Jack...
Jack...as he began to slowly open up in regard to his relationship with Mable as, over the years, they become partners...
As a Christian, I did not like the instances of swearing and just felt many other words would have been just effective to show the frustration the characters were going through. I would have given it five stars except for that...
I listen to books all the time, When I am driving, cleaning, cooking or doing anything quiet. I am AUDOBSESSED!
I loved this sweet story that really turns into an adult fairy tale. But I want to warn you tht it takes an hour or two to totally get into it. there are details that you need that seem dumb in the beginning but keep on listening it gets very good.
This was a very suspenseful and unusual book. The characters were quirky and wonderful. The life in Alaska was hard and difficult but full of rewards. The snow child was full of energy and life and her customs were old world. I hated for this story to end. I also had so much sadness because of the events that slowly played out. And yet the joy in the story makes me smile as I remember bits and pieces. I loved this book and will read more from this writer. I loved this story!
