    "Great idea for a book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Talkeetna Twines to be better than the print version?

    I could imagine the problems associated with hiding and yet the need to survive. Surviving includes the ability to feel value in one's own life and value in others. Listening allowed my mind an opportunity to review my thoughts as well as those by the author.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I enjoyed the mental pictures developed while listening to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a great value for the money. I will listen again.

    A book can get you out of your house, your town, even out of the country. I'm an avid reader believing reviews help find the good ones.

    Story
    "This Book was FUNNY!"

    This woman running for her life ends up in the Alaskan outback with nothing and she totally sets up house. She digs a cozy cave home, carves a dining room table out of a bolder and makes an oven out of dirt. She finds food at her feet, found a good dog wondering around and one day a horse just showed up - she even found her prince charming out there. It just seemed everything she needed just popped up. The woman even made biscuits in her dirt oven but it never did mention where she got the flour to do it.

    Living and making it the Alaskan bush is HARD! Everything is a struggle and with the animals and insects you’re in the fight for your life…for this woman it was a day at the mall.

    Even though the storyline was out there it was entertaining. I did laugh quite a bit and it did keep me in suspense since I kept waiting to see if she was going to build a dishwasher out of sticks (ha!). If your looking for a survival story this isn't it but if your looking for an easy listen with corny storyline this might fit the bill.

    "Better than expected"
    What made the experience of listening to Talkeetna Twines the most enjoyable?

    the imagery was amazing. that's not usually what grabs my attention in a book on audio, but it really lent to the greatness of the story.


    What other book might you compare Talkeetna Twines to and why?

    there are not any books that I would compare it too. This is the first time I've really listened to a story told like this, and while I really liked it, it did not resemble much of what I am used to listening to.


    What about Stephanie Brush’s performance did you like?

    She had a sort of hypnotic voice, it was very relaxing to listen to, but didn't make me want to fall asleep.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but that's because there are not any books this long that I would want to listen to in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a great listen. I would recommend it to anyone that doesn't mind a somewhat slower story, but a very relaxing and sweet story of love and strength of heart.
