The author has an amazing ability of making the reader care about her characters. The characters are so well developed that if you close your eyes you can almost see and hear them like they are real people. The story was riveting and packed with actual location in and around Homer Alaska and the Kenai peninsula. I have told every reader I know about this wonderful piece of historical fiction. Now to find another book by Kristin Hannah.
This story was beautiful. I highly recommend this book. I couldn’t put the book down. It reflects every human emotion.
I just love Kristen Hannah’s stories. I love the details and the strong characters. This one does not disappoint.
This book was hard to put down. The characters were real and let you live with them. I am never disappointed when I read this authors books.
I couldn’t put this book down. It’s a wonderful story of love, how complicated life can be, of forgiveness, of the love between a mother& her child, of loss and renewal. Ms. Hannah has created characters with depth, sympathy. The story of life in Alaska was fascinating. One thing - have tissues handy, the end of this story will get your tears flowing. Highly recommend!
Such a beautifully crafted story that I didn’t want to end. I fell in love with some of the characters and hated others! The landscape and travails of Alaska were so realistically described. One of my favorite books ever!!
I fell in love with the characters in this book. I’m a Man, but I will admit I was brought to tears at certain points in the novel.....and I very much want to see Alaska!
****** MAJOR SPOILER***********
I loved this book. Loved everything about it until Matthew’s fall and subsequent TBI. (Traumatic Brain Injury). Initially the author’s portrayal of Matthew’s injury is correct. And then he shows to be severely brain-damaged- unable to communicate, confined to bed. And this seems to go on for several years. That is a baseline catastrophic TBI. Brain cells don’t regenerate. For Leni to return with MJ approx 5-6? years after the accident and have him walking and talking and showing mild cognitive delays is not realistic and I had a large problem with believability. Yes, I’m a psych RN; and I just know better,but very disappointing at the end of a great book. Meggie610

I loved The Great Alone so much and felt incredibly connected to the characters while reading. Couldn’t put it down!
I’m not sure what is wrong with this novel. It’s probably me. I could not fall in love with it like The Nightingale. Or any of the other wonderful books she has written. I felt the story was somewhat forced, disjointed and then predictable. I did not feel the pity for the the parents in the story that I know she wanted us to. Wish I had enjoyed it.
