    Story
    "Just ok"

    I loved the vivid descriptions of the Alaskan Wilderness. That is the only thing that kept me listening. The story seems to drag on and on. I just didn't get it. Must not be my genre. I kept thinking something unexpected would happen but it never did.

    Story
    "Sweet and dreamy but never sappy."

    All of the characters are like distant family members in the photos on your mother's wall who you wish you had known or could talk to and ask questions. You sympathize with their sorrows and are relieved for them when experience joys. You'll miss them when it's over.

    It was perfectly performed with personalities voiced as I imagine you would expect in reading.

    Story
    "Confusing"

    This book can't decide it if wants to be a fantasy or a (sad) drama. Is she real or not? I guess that's to be decided in the mind of the reader. The writing itself is great, with wonderful descriptions and a good flow to the story (after a slow start). But the ending to the story was unsatisfying and overall I found the whole book to be just "okay."

    "sweet"

    A sweet read during winter. I enjoyed the narrator and flow of the book. There was no twist or turns but I loved the characters like I love a warm blanket on my cold toes in winter.
