    My reviews can also be seen at Wow This was a FANTASTIC novel There is no way anyone could have pried this book from my hands while I was reading it Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite authors and I am always excited when a new book is going to be released When I found out that her new book, The Great Alone was set in Alaska in 1974 the year I was born I was itching to get reading

    3.5 stars When it comes to emotionally compelling fiction, without a doubt, Kristin Hannah is in a league of her own Over the years, she s taken me to the brink of hopelessness, dangled me over the edge of complete devastation and trampled my heart in the process Where I think her magic lies is in knowing just the right moment to toss out a lifeline restoring faith, inciting love and in so

    All this time, Dad had taught Leni how dangerous the outside world was The truth was that the biggest danger of all was in her own home. This book completely stole my heart Maybe it s just fresh in my mind, but I m pretty sure I enjoyed The Great Alone even than Kristin Hannah s The Nightingale In fact, it was verging on a five star read for me until the final few chapters which I felt w

    Kristin Hannah wrote 70% of a novel and then 30% of a soap opera.I know this isn t likely to be a popular opinion Hannah is an incredibly popular writer whose books sell into the millions This might be a case of it s not you, it s me The same problems I found in her sentinel work The Nightingale came back to haunt The Great Alone weak female characters, use of death and tragedy as plot devis

    One thing is for sure, Kristin Hannah, hands down, is a talented author who can weave a tale I have read many of her previous novels and always found them to be beautiful and thought provoking This one, however, rubbed me the wrong way.Forewarning This storyline deals with a lot of heavy issues, the most serious and horrific, physical abuse I am trying my best to keep spoilers out of this review.Just so you know

    Were you ever out in the Great Alone, when the moon was awful clear, And the icy mountains hemmed you in with a silence you most could hear With only the howl of a timber wolf, and you camped there in the cold, A half dead thing in a stark, dead world, clean mad for the muck called gold While high overhead, green, yellow and red, the North Lights swept in bars Then you ve a hunch what the music meant hunger and night and

    What a story I mentioned this in one of my status updates and I think it is the best way to describe this book every new scene in this book is out of the frying pan and into the fire My wife recommended this book to me and we usually have a pretty good idea of what the other will like probably a 95% success rate We have both read and enjoyed The Nightingale, which is probably what Hannah is best known for even though she has qui

    This is my first read by Kristin Hannah and I adored it Set in the 1970s, it is about Ernt Allbright, a man who returns home to Seattle after being a POW in the Vietnam War He is now a changed man, suffering sleepless nights, flashbacks, nightmares and volatile in his behaviour PTSD was an undiagnosed condition at the time but it ravaged Ernt s life and that of his wife, Cora, and his 13 year old daughter, Leni The Allbright family used

    its books like this that remind me why reading is such a passionate and worthwhile constant in my life i have come to rely on books to help me learn, grown, empathise, and sometimes escape and this story did all of that but what i am grateful for, most of all, is how i was able to read about a place i have never been and fall in love with it, how i could find an undeniable softness for the harsh landscape of the alaskan wilderness, how i could
