    Sad/Depressing... Not a book that I would recommend...as a light read. I enjoyed other of Kristin Hannah's books...this one a bit too dark...not my taste. Sad and depressing...

    This book had me moving through every possible emotion! It was so powerfully written and so suspenseful I don't want to say much more. It is such an amazing story about community, caring, compassion and resilience. Descriptions of Alaska and northern life were profoundly beautiful and inspiring. I don't give many books such a recommendation. Do yourself a favour and read or listen to this when you can! KeriAnn

    A page turner! It demonstrates a mother’s love, opens the window onto the brutality of life off-the-grid in the harshest parts of Alaska, and inspires readers to follow their guts and hearts. I read it during a prolonged blackout in No Cal when we also had no running water, so I felt very pleased with the comforts we had :).

    Well Done It felt slow, the read itself; but I decided that was necessary to really pull the flavor of the relationships together. Very intricate feelings portrayed in a very pure & basic environment. Rural Alaska was as interesting to learn about as well as the character development. Again, Well Done!

    Kristan says the Great Alone is a love letter to Alaska but it's also a scary place to live that allows no mistakes. The book put me on an emotional roller coaster from the highest to the lowest. Some parts were hard for me to read and others were so beautiful I could hardly wait to pick it up again. Still love, hate and friendship endures and continues to grow.

    I was disappointed. I love the way Kristen Hannah writes - the descriptions of Alaska make me feel as if I am there, but it was such a dark book/story and then to have the ending arrive so abruptly and seem so unreal, it greatly disappointed me. I would say this is not her best effort.

    This was a great read! It made me really grateful for all the everyday luxuries, like heat, light, indoor plumbing, that we take for granted. She is a wonderful author, I loved The Nightengale and I look forward to reading more of her work.
