Do NOT choose this series. Logic hard to follow, characters not compelling, overall disappointing story
What would have made Everything Under the Heavens better?
If, when I was choosing the Dana Stabenow book, I had known that this was the first "chapter", I would not have been so surprised. The length of the "chaapter" was the length of a novel but ended with a cliff hanger ... not good.The narration was done by a woman that had done all of the other Stabenow books and I was lulled into thinking that this was the first of the Kate Shugak novels, the one where the lineage of the Inuit (or whatever tribe) came by its mixed blood. Not good thinking on my part but I would have accepted this new genre if I wasn't left hanging. One cannot call it a book if it is not complete in and of itself.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I think that I will get her next novel in book form and then the disappointment won't be so great. It seems like listening is a more active use of the mind.
What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?
She was fine in the performances, except for the fact that she has done all the other books and is so identified in my mind as "Alaska". I kept hearing the narrator's voice and it would bring images of all the other characters in her Alaskan novels.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
