©2000 Dana Stabenow; (P)2000 Books on Tape, Inc.
"Stabenow's evocation of the Kuskokwim delta and its inhabitants is as artful as her portrayal of the Alaskan bush country." (Publishers Weekly)
"Every time I think Dana Stabenow has gotten as good as she can get, she comes up with something better." (Washington Times)
There are a few books missing on audible between this one and the 2nd but I felt like the listener was brought up to speed well enough to figure out what happened to Kate during the gap. I got a bit lost with the Russian story line at times, but, overall, enjoyed this book. I actually really liked the twist between Kate and Jim and thought it added to the story!
I have to admit I read the reviews of the one before this and because I couldn't face losing Jack Morgan I didn't read it. I'll go back at the end and get to it then.
That said, this is very good. I like Chopper Jim and it's nice to see Kate come out of the haze of pain.
Thank goodness for Mutt.
As usual Marguerite Gavin did a wonderful job. I love the audio of these books so much.
This is the second time that I have read all of the "Kate Shugak" novels back to back and in order, both because the novels are exciting, darkly humorous, well written, and entertaining, but most of all, because I have either visited or lived in every location Kate has. This makes Kate's experiences all the more vivid.
Dana Stabenow has the gift of really making those locations and Kate's experiences come alive to the reader.
This book had an interesting premise: doctor invents sleep medication to help suffering father, evil businessman perverts medication to pursue world domination, doctor tries to save world from evil businessman. However, the story got sidetracked by a silly romance, and the relationship between the main characters was so stilted and disfunctional that I had to turn the CD off several times in disgust. Also, how many times can one author use the word "jerkily"? If you want to find out, listen to this book. I was not particularly impressed.
