  • Very Dark Tale and Draining to Read

    This is my first and last Kristin Hannah book, which apparently puts me in a very small minority. While I loved the story from the standpoint of experiencing what it is like to live in the wild of Alaska, and Leni Allbright is a character that you wholeheartedly root for, I felt like I was reading a YA book meets romance. I’ve given 3 stars only for the Alaska wilderness writing in the book. Still, I kept reading as I wanted to see Leni thrive, grow, succeed. We jump from Leni at 14 to Leni at 17, grown-up, confident, ready to take on the world. Unfortunately, nothing has changed in the Allbright household, except that the domestic abuse and violence escalates out of control. The book is 448 pages, and not until the last 10 pages is there anything happy about Leni’s life. Other reviews I read talked about the storyline showing faith being restored, love lost and found again, redemption, but I didn’t see or feel any of that. There was way more domestic abuse and violence than I care to read about. This is a dark, somber and, frankly, quite draining book to read.

  • THE GREAT ALONE

    The most powerful book I have ever read..worth 100 stars not 5. emotionally packed, a roller coaster ride of emotions, laughter, anger, love, sadness, fear and tears! The descriptions of Alaska with its beauty , color, weather, animals and rugedness are very accurate. The people of Alaska are described perfectly. A definite must read book. I loved the story!

  • The great alone

    I was so sad when this book ended. I have never er wanted to live in Alaska or even end visit there but after spending a week in the great alone I fell Madly in love with the idea. My only disappointment was there were no wild animal encounter so there really should have been.

    Thanks for your feedback!
