Perty Gud Dar Laddie...Cept Wenn It Ain't...

this is a good novel once it gets going, which is just about halfway. There is some of the character and plot development that is told to us rather than being shown to us, and that is a flaw. I can't imagine how one of the reviewers thought there was any racism in this novel except if she meant that a narrator with a terrible Scottish accent is racist. And I almost never say anything about narrators, but this one was terrible. He should have just not tried for an accent at all--and it sounds like he is turning whole placards when he goes to another page! Maybe it was supposed to be the wings of the Kingfisher!

heart wrenching tale.

wonderful and awful simultaneously. the hero is, per Stratton-Porter's style, perfect to s fault. I had to keep reading to know HOW the healing was brought about, but I'm not in love with the story.
the performance was incredible- the art of speaking in accents and switching demeanor per character is highly under appreciated.

A Good Life

A frontier story of brotherly live, honor, and integrity in a simpler time. Good, old-fashioned tale of love.

Terrible Narration

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the narrator had NOT tried to do accents for the characters. They were horrible. I couldn't even listen to it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rusty Nelson?

Someone who can do accents.
