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.

- Pamela M. "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."

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.
