A Good story

Would you listen to The Far Side of Lonesome again? Why?

Probably not. It was a good story but just not enough of a story to listen to again.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that the main characters could see each other as people and not as a race.

What does Mark Kamish bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Well, when I first started listening, Mark had this weird way of talking - like an old man telling a story. It was distracting at first but I got into it and enjoyed his way of telling the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't have any strong reactions to the story. The only thing that bothered me was that the story rather just ended. Was it a HEA? I don't really know. And that may have been what was intended but I really like those HEA's.

Any additional comments?

Over all, the book was good and meant to be a short story.

Rock and a hard place

This work was thought provoking on many levels. The difficulty presented to the main characters could be viewed through the prism of today's reality or the immediate post civil war necessities. I would have welcomed a little more development of both characters IE:, life as a captured woman in an indigenous camp and as a minority in a brutal post war frontier. I will be looking for more from Rita Hestand.
I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for this review.
