Kristin Hannah never disappoints. The Great Alone drew me in and I couldn’t put it down. Finished it in three days. What a touching story of the human spirit and the kindness of strangers. As well as reminder of the power of forgiveness. All set in the state of Alaska that the author so beautifully describes in vivid detail. I know want to visit Alaska someday soon!
I enjoyed this book so much. It made me laugh, cry and it left me on the edge of my seat. I generally hate books about the wilderness but I enjoyed this book about the trials of romance and family in Alaska. I recommend this book for people everywhere.
This book had me hooked from the very beginning. It just kept getting better and better as I went along. It was very descriptive and very well done. Almost made me want to move to Alaska! I highly recommend it.
I’ve never left a review for a book before but I almost didn’t buy this book because the one review I saw was that it’s the worst book Kristin Hannah has ever wrote. There were so many highs and lows in this book. So many amazing turns that you didn’t see coming. I’ve never cried so hard from reading a book, after falling in love with the character! But the book. It’s great!
We are 8 hours into listening to this book and nothing of interest has happened yet. Giving up!

What a wonderful book. You will get hooked with the first sentence and not be able to put it down!!! Loved and hated the characters, and want to go live in Alaska!!! You know an author is great when you can't stop thinking about the book when you have to put it down, and can't wait to get back to it !!! Love, hate, tears, joy, forgiveness, anger, resentment, just a few of the feelings this story will invoke in you! A must read!!!!!
It kept me reading. There was a lot I didn’t like & I almost stopped. I did like the ending.
Had to force myself to read this contrived and obvious novel. Basic writing skills and characters that are made up to propel a story that seems as if it was written by a high school student left me flat. I just didn’t care. No real depth. Was it written in two weeks? Dull.
This is a love story depicting good love relationships and destructive ones. It is a frustrating, hard to read book at times. There are some “feel good” romantic moments but many more gritty, tough, hard to accept ones.
It takes a little while to get deep into the action but once it does it will have you hooked. Interesting perspective about life in Alaska and living through the cold and dark winters. Love that it’s from a teenage girl perspective.
I read Thor, Silva, Baldacci, Childs, Van Lustbaden, Taylor, Iles, C.Hahhah, Phillips, Baldwin- this was by far the one novel that really touched my heart and made me cry. It was so well written. I almost gave up at the beginning with all the “ wife beatings”, but I stuck with it and was rewarded in the end.
The author took great pains to develop characters that have true depth! Great read
