Was pretty good. Could have done with some editing to get the length down.

I think I would have liked this more but the main character drove me insane with how whiny she was and how she went on and on that she was crazy. Really distracted me from a lot of the story.

I just really love Phoebe. She reads her own books and they are great.

TracyReadsBooks Love the title—which also happens to be one of the rules in our home! 😂 1mo
Karkar @TracyReadsBooks I never really thought about it much until she was talking about it. Now I am like ewwwwww do not do that 1mo

This was my first Krakauer book and will not be my last. It was an interesting story about a young man who was from a well off family who goes out into Alaska to investigate a new life for himself.

Once one suspends belief and allows the book to flow, this is a good story. I enjoyed the audio version.

I just discovered Ali‘s comedy last weekend and I knew I had to listen to this book. It is a memoir written as a letter to her daughters. If you like her comedy you will enjoy the book.

I had no idea what to expect going into this book. I really enjoyed the different story lines and how the author weaved them together.

I think I liked the first one better, However it was interesting to watch Darius go through growth in different situations this time.

GondorGirl I agree that overall the first book was stronger, but I did really love this sequel. 4mo

My mom picked this for her family book club pick based on that she really liked the Fictional books the author wrote. I am having to bail about 14% in. It is so dry and not keeping my attention at all. I like non- fiction but I do not want to feel like I am reading a textbook.

This was a super fast read. I read it and listened at the same time and I really enjoyed it. Each character had there own actor, which made it so much better. There is a bit a weird storyline but I got past that and all was good.

…”The Great Gatsby is a snoozefest, and if I‘m gonna read words, I‘d rather them be by Octavia Butler, Tananarive Due, or Stephen Graham Jones instead of the guy who wrote a story about the tragedy of being rich.”

I really am bouncing between a soap and a pan. I did finish the book but it has been my least favorite Jennifer McMahon book - who is an auto buy author for me.

Gaylagal2 I love her too! So disappointed that she didn't hit this one out of the park 😞 She is one that I thought couldn't write a bad book. I think she will have a new one this fall? 12mo

Read this one for family book club. It was good. I kept thinking there was going to be a huge twist, so I did not get most of who was really guilty until it was laid out in the book.
