"She [Anna Pigeon] is a captivating, daredevil detective whose adventures will delight mystery readers." (School Library Journal)
"Barr, a park ranger, provides plenty of authentic details about life in the great outdoors, and her deft plotting and appealingly quirky characters give her story plenty of punch. Anna Pigeon is tough-minded, strong, sensitive, vulnerable, and funny." (Booklist)
I am not usually a mystery reader but I enjoyed this one very much. The author creates memorable characters and beautiful description. I grew up in Michigan and spend a lot of time in the "UP." I also spent a summer volunteering in a national park and I think Ms. Barr has really captured these environments perfectly. Funny, but many of the characters seemed familiar to me. I found a bio on her and found that she grew up near Lassen Park where I volunteered! The book not only brought back happy memories but also entertained me thoroughly.
Science writer in America's heartland
This is the first book I have read in the Anna Pigeon series. I bought it on Audible because it is set in one of my favorite places in the world: Lake Superior. I really loved the descriptions of life on the lake, which agreed with my experiences of being there. I liked that the heroine is a park ranger who uses her knowledge of science and nature to solve a mystery.
An avid reader
Well I haven't yet
This is only my third Ann Pigeon story. Nevada Barr does a very nice job of building upon the character. We learn more about her (and her past) all the time. It unfolds. I also like Molly, Ann's sister in NYC. She's quite a character.
This is a powerful and complex story that comes together in an exciting and believable way. Everything gets resolved, explained and you come away satisfied.
I have listened to and read many Barr novels, finding them enjoyable and giving me a chance to get in touch with my "feninine side." this was not even close to her usual quality. The usual interesting descriptions of the parks was tepid, and the dialog was trite to the extreme. Rosenblat did her best with the naration, but even she couldn't save this one.
Barbara Rosenblat has once again brought the character of Anna Pigeon to life. The plot, location and characters are very enjoyable. This is one of my favorites from the series.
This is the second Anna Pidgeon book I've listened to, but I still don't understand this heroine/Park Ranger, but I like her. She's WAY tough. Still looking for more of her softer side. I've already bought Book 3.
yes, a good plot written with humour.
I liked the setting, the humour and the writing
the main character
yes, made me laugh out loud
This is my second Anna Pidgeon novel and I really enjoyed it. I like Nevada Barr's development of Anna as a person and I also like the descriptions of the parks and nature. The ending is action packed and suspenseful.
I decided to try this author given the positive reviews she received from other listeners but I was greatly disappointed. I was looking for a mystery/adventure story and the description of the plot for this book had indicated to me that it could be exciting. Unfortunately, the author gets bogged down in the mundane. I felt too much time was given to minutia about the characters' lives in an effort to develop them personally, and too little time was devoted to plot development. After I finished listening to the book my response was "eh." I may try this author again but I'm going to be careful to read other reviews of her other novels before choosing which one.
