I enjoyed this story, once I got used to the narrator who was hard work to listen to (read with little emotion) I was hooked. It was sad but ended on a happy note.
Rarely do I post a review. However, this read/listen was dreadful. I suffered through over a third of the book, thinking it would soon develop into something worthwhile. I simply couldn't take any more. If you would like to listen to a cross between an upper level college text on bird biology and a far-fetched story about a self-sufficient 9 year old child, this is your book!
Was hard to follow. The narrator was did not keep me interested and the story seemed so unreal but I finished. Thankful for happy endings with lessons learned.
One of the best books I have heard in a long time !! Both author and narrator transported me visually and emotionally into almost every scene ! Truly enjoyable !!
This book is hard to listen to. The narrator has a very creepy child’s voice. And the plot. A 9 year old child is missing in the woods and everyone is just going on with their lives? And the Daddy Conolexes. Uuugh. Gross.
Was a bit of a slow start but I quickly became very invested in the story and it just got better and better up to the end.
What a delightful, wonderful book. Highly recommend this. Excellent story line, interesting but believable characters, loads of fascinating information on nature squashed in between. Totally believable and a lovely interlude to listen while a different world rages around us all. Don't miss this book!
