    Awful Read!

    I had to read this book for school and it is SO slow and I hate it. So boring. I ended up getting really sick over reading this book. Thanks a lot Leif Enger, for nothing, but your pointless book!

    SNOOZE!

    I didn't like this book at all! Although parts of the plot were intriguing the majority of the story was very dull and it was very hard to force myself to finish the book. I would not recommend this!

    Waste of Paper.....Mean but true.

    This book was very very hard to read. The whole story could have been told in 20 pages. Very detailed descriptions and allusions - which is what made it so hard. To describe a simple situation took a page and a half. Rough....very rough book. The plot was good, characters were dull. Swede's poems had absolutley NOTHING to do with the story.

    Slowest moving book ever !

    I had to force myself to finish this book. The story could have been told in 10 pages. The characters were completely unbelievable and I hope I never read another account of how cold it is in North Dakota in winter.

    This is the kind of book that makes you question ever reading agian.

    This book was horrible. NOthing happend. I had to read this book for school, Had i not i never would of finished it let along gotten a hundred pages into it. This book, is lacking in more areas than one, first its boring, then it creats these unrealistic scenarios, then it charecters are dull and like the same person with diffrent names. I for the life of me do not understand why so many people enjoyed this story, it was a little house on the praire novel dragged out way to far.

    Only the 2nd book I could not finish!

    This is only the 2nd book I could not finish! The story line does not flow. A dictionary is required on almost every page. I think the Author wrote this with a Thesaurus to be original, original he was! After 127 pages, I said enough is enough! The author make a 9 year old girl talk and act like a adult. I read the previous reviews on this book before I purchased it, I figured I bought the wrong book, however the title and author are the same. I sorry I do not agree with the previous reviews. I just could not take it any more.
