Redundant and repetitive. Got about 3/4 through and abandoned it. Seemed to be a stereotypical look at the pathway to addiction in a very idealized and unrealistic situation. I can see why Netflix would pick it up. Definitely not literature, more like pulp fiction. Also a very poor narrator. Good thing it was free or I would have returned it.

Excellent story very much in keeping with Conan Doyle's style. Mr Weir definitely needs to write more. It's exciting to learn more from the other side. Bravo!

This is an out of date 'bodice ripper' that is endlessly long and the narrator makes the heroine sound like a shrew. The only reason this book rose out of the ashes of time is because Netflix decided to make a series from it. Not worth a good credit.

I was nervous to read this as I was afraid that the horrors would be too graphic to bear but i was wrong. The gentle and considerate way in which the author told this intimate story allowed me to truly understand the brutality of racism and the lasting legacy of the residential school system. A must read for any Canadian seeking to understand.

A tender, heartfelt story of deep felt unassuming love. I can't help feeling that the original Japanese version would have been more poetic. Nonetheless, a well done, enjoyable read.

If you are a knitter or lover of yarns this is an interesting listen about the revival of the artisinal knitting industry. An easy listen while working on your knitting or other projects.

Pullman does not dissappoint. Equally thought provoking for adult or young reader (10 yrs or so). It's a short story, in the genre of a fable or fairy story. Easily read in one sitting. Indeed, the story pulls you along such that taking a break is not a thought. The readers use of different voices and accents is excellent.

A gentle, lovely story of family reconciliation through the love of a child. Most appreciated at Christmas.
