The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

I think I may have enjoyed The Great Alone even more than The Nightingale. I love that both novels place female relationships at the center, although the ending feels a bit rushed in both books.

It is exam phase again which means I‘m sitting at my desk the whole day and work through multiple mental breakdowns.
Fortunately, The Great Alone is already a book I look forward to reading whenever I have time. I have lots of anger already for the parents who bring their daughter to this isolated area they know nothing about. You can feel the constant looming danger of nature and of violence.

"He picked out the small, plump heart and held it up to Leni. Blood leaked between his fingers. "You're the hunter. Eat the heart."

WHAT THE HELL! Leni's father is freaking crazy!

NighttimeWanderer
The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

"The colors were so vibrant, the world hardly looked real: green, swaying grass in the clearing, purple wildflowers, the gray zigzag steps leading to a blue sea that breathed in and out along the pebbled shore. Beyond it all, a fjord of impossible grandeur, sculpted eons ago by glaciers". #TheGreatAlone #KristinHannah

I got to see @kristinhannahauthor at the #piercecountyreads event yesterday. She was lovely - funny, informative, and generous with her time. And she told me to listen to my mother in following my own passion, and gave me a rec to use as a starting point. Go see her if you get the chance!

MEGR It was the ending I wanted obviously, but the whole thing about Matthew being that much better just felt unbelievable. My favorite thing about the book was how Cora finally came through for Leni towards the end of her life. That felt real. 10mo
jpellet Leni saying goodbye to Cora was hard to read. I think Leni had unconditional love for her mom even though Cora selfishly stayed with an abusive husband for so many years, putting Leni at risk. I thought the book ended on a happy note. Overall, I thought it was a great read! 10mo
CoffeeNBooks I enjoyed the book, even though some of it seemed too convenient: Cora's death and the confession letter, Matthew's recovery, and even how quick he was to forgive Leni for being gone and keeping his son from him for so long. But, I feel like that's also an important part of the story- life is too short and unpredictable, especially somewhere like Alaska, to hold grudges. This was the 1st Kristin Hannah book I've read , but I'll read more. 10mo

CoffeeNBooks Thanks @EadieB for hosting this buddy read!! I really enjoyed the reading and the discussions! 10mo
DeleteAcct I thought the ending was right on. Leni finally could lay Cora to rest and go on with her life. Great book! Yes, thank you @EadieB for hosting. 10mo
EadieB @CoffeeNBooks @Rachbb3 You‘re welcome! Thanks for participating everyone! 10mo
Geeklet Thanks so much @EadieB This was the first buddy read I‘ve been in where I read along with the group and it was tons of fun. 10mo
EadieB @Geeklet You‘re welcome! Buddy Reads are great fun! 10mo
Jovy I cried at her farewell to Cora, so touching! I enjoyed the book very much. Thanks @EadieB for hosting! 10mo
Andrew65 @jpellet I agree the scenes with Leni and Cora were hard to read. 10mo
Andrew65 Overall an excellent book, although felt the book took the wrong path with the accident to Matthew and then had to find a way to resolve it. 10mo
Andrew65 My only other issue with the book was the abuse, very difficult to read. Thanks @EadieB for an excellent buddy read. 🙌👏😊 10mo
EadieB @Andrew65 You‘re welcome! Yes the abuse was difficult and I have to agree that Matthew‘s accident did not have to be that severe. He should have been able to recuperate better. 10mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Despite this I still have it down as a five star read. 10mo

Reecaspieces 🤔🤔🤔I think she is woman enough to do whatever she wants now. 10mo
jpellet It went very well! I was surprised to hear Matthew had improved so much. I don‘t think she will move back to her old cabin where there are constant memories of her dead parents. 10mo
CoffeeNBooks I think Leni will take the negative memories and rebuild on her land, with Matthew, and turn it into something positive. 10mo

DeleteAcct I thought the reunion was great. It was nice that Matthew had recovered somewhat. As for the cabin, burn it to the ground. 10mo
Geeklet I hope that she will be able to help Matthew heal. I don‘t know if I would have stayed on that land if I were her though. 10mo
Jovy Great reunion! I think she can return to the cabin, although probably best to tear it down and build new memories. 10mo
Andrew65 Yes destroy it and build something new on the land. A touching reunion, like the scene where he thought she wanted to show him her husband. 10mo

kspenmoll Yes! First of all I love her bigger than life character so it was fun to have her reappear with a big splash! As to Tom‘s call to the governor, that seems realistic & we were aware that connection. They could pull out all the stops to help Leni now. Before Cora got in the way with her refusal to press charges against Ernt. (edited) 10mo
Reecaspieces Large marge is one of the best characters ever. And once again @kspenmoll nailed it! 10mo
peaknit Agree! It‘s awesome to see these characters standing up for one another, and Large Marge blows any stereotypes of who lives in podunk, Alaska, right out of the water.☺️ 10mo

jpellet Yes! Large Marge is one of my favorite characters in this book. Of course she would come to Leni‘s rescue! And it pays to have friends in high places! 10mo
CoffeeNBooks I love Large Marge!! And I love how she and Tom have always looked out for Cora and Leni. I was afraid Tom was going to be upset with Leni for not letting him know about his grandson for all of those years, but I think he understood why. 10mo
DeleteAcct Yeah, as soon as Large Marge came into the courtroom I knew that was it. She wasn't going to let anything happen to Leni. 10mo
Geeklet I loved Large Marge so much. I‘m glad they were able to help Leni. I wish Leni would have let her mother take the blame a long time ago though. 10mo
Jovy I love that scene! Part of me was like why didn‘t they use Tom‘s connections years ago! 10mo
Andrew65 That was a great scene. 10mo
Andrew65 @Jovy I had the same question in mind. 10mo
