Excellently Read

I love this book and was not expecting to hear that Kate Mulgrew narrates the audio book. I was concerned about her ability to do the Charlie Manx voice, but did not need to be. She nailed each character perfectly. Very well done!
Good Sad Story

What would you do if your spouse died suddenly at a young age? What if you had three young kids to care for? This memoir tells how one woman survived through it. Very well written. I cried several times.
contrived

I didn't like this book, and I liked Gone Girl. I didn't feel like any of the things that happened in this book could happen in real life, and I absolutely hated every single character. Still, I had to finish it to find out what ultimately happens. I found the ended to be predictable and disappointing.
Too Short

This re-visitation of the Chris McCandless story felt clipped. It's only an hour, and as someone who has read the book, his parent's book, his sister's book, listened to the audiobok, and seen the movie several times, I learned nothing new. If you haven't done all that and don't know the story, don't start here! Read or watch or listen to Into the Wild.
Didn't Get It

This graphic novel was too abstract for me. I just didn't get it. I'm not sure if other (deeper) people will understand, but it was over my head.
