One Way To Getway to get to read your books is to have a great narrator The best nes have fans I wanted to buy books narrated by Barbara Rosenblat and this was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures on her list I probably would not have purchased ittherwise The narrator was great THE RECORDING EUIPMENT WAS POOR UALITY YOU COULD HEAR THE NARRATOR S BREATHING AND SWALLOWING This was recorded in 1998 Maybe the euipment wasn t as good back then The breathing was distractingTHE STORYThis is part Mountain Fever Stone Brothers 1 of the Anna Pigeon series She is a park ranger has a gun and can arrest people Each book has her working in a different national park In this book she worksn an island in Lake Superior near the Canadian border Someone is killed a woman disappears someone is being blackmailed and there is a problem happening with a teenager It is a typical mystery detective story with Anna talking to many different people and gradually solving the various mysteries Anna s job is patrolling the area in her park ranger boat She works alone no partner Her husband died several years earlierOPINIONThere are several interesting characters Clues surface during the story which I like Anna was facing danger a couple times She impressed me with her competence at catching and arresting those stronger than she and when she did not have her gun There are some diving scenes with danger Overall I have to say it was OK but it never really grabbed me I want to be surprised Process or delightedr smiling Known for fantastic deep water dives Beg Songs Of Submission 1 of wrecked sailing vessels Leaving behind memoriesf the Texas high desert and the environmental scam she helped uncover Anna is adjusting to the cool damp Beg And Tease Songs Of Submission 1 2 of Lake Superior and the spirits and loref the northern Midwest But when a routine application for a diving permit reveals a grisly underwa.
Nevada Barr È 3 reviewThis author sets her murder mysteries in national parks like Yosemite This book is set in my home waters Upper Michigan Wisconsin Primal Law Mack Bolan The Executioner 344 on a national park that covers an entire island in the Great Lakes Isle Royalen Lake Superior Hence the titleI read this murder mystery some years ago As I recall the mystery itself was slow going at first the heroine Anna was sad and pensive because her husband recently died in NYC Eventually the plot picked up and became suitably intense at times I remember a vivid and dangerous dive scene down to the submerged shipwreck Also there was some weird incest sibling love thing going n However I was disappointed in how Barr portrayed the setting n Isle Royale in Lake Superior I have been there hiking and camping for about 4 days It s a uniue and fascinating place an international biosphere with wild wolves preying n the wild moose and with carnivorous pitcher plants and ther interesting flora The rocky volcanic island is turning to soil almost right in front Catalogue Raisonne Of Sculpture ofur eyes Scientists from all Eternal Womanhood over the world conduct research here I vividly remember my visit 25 years later But from this storyne wouldn t really know It could have been set n any island So I was miffed Why set your murder mystery in such a location if you aren t going to make something f itI ve read a few He Humbled Himself of the Nevada Barr mysteries Some are better thanthers Some are grisly than Woordenlijst Nederlandse Taal others Thisne wasn t too gruesome but the Sustainable Suburbia one set in Yosemite National Park High Country is grizzly Ergrisly Very gruesome I am so glad that I went back to this series The first book Trackf the Cat was very good but I am beginning to think that I liked this ne better Nevada Barr has a way f drawing in the reader in from the very beginning and holding your full attention straight through to the end Even if you think you have figured Sir Edmund Hillary out where she is going you still holdn to each word in case there is something there that you might not have picked up Political Realism on in the beginning but you are darn sure you want to know in the endThis time Anna Pigeon has been reassigned to Isle Royale in Lake Superior hence the name wherene Angst Volume 2 of her assigned duties is watchingver the Kamloops a vessel that sunk in 1927 with 5 sailors n board Well that is what she has been told but up comes a diver swearing that there are six men down there Now Anna is not a big fan f deep diving considering the fact that if you come up too uickly the closest decompression chamber is two very painful hours away That is if you do not die in the mean timeYep there is an extra body down there and why is he wearing an The Ugly Duckling Debutante The House Of Renwick 1 old fashioned sailor s uniform Darn the peaceful summer with the entertaining wild life and the adventuresome scuba diving tourists just got a whole lot troublesomeThis is not thenly story going 1 on Nope that would be too easy for Anna You also have the missing wifef a fellow ranger you have a head twisting what did you say relationship involving Hawk and Holly who are members Docker of a dive team and you have a young incorrigible named Carrie Ann who keeps sneakingff to the utter frustration Warlord of her mother I know it sounds like a lot to keep trackf but Ms Barr writes each character so clearly that the Adult Dyslexia only confusion that I had was which boat belonged to whomWithout being repetitive there areccasional
Get Caught Up Sections Wherecaught up sections where are re analyzed much in the thinking aloud concept where the reader says h that s right that makes sense The who done it part is not apparent from the beginning and the reader is lead down many different paths as Anna herself is trying to figure it all ut at the same timeI really enjoyed this book and I will definitely move the next in the series up The Smiley Snowman on my list The books are not deep but they are twisty so you will have to pay attention Why have I never picked this series up before I ve been vaguely awaref it for ages but it never appealed to me for whatever reason
But I Wanted AI wanted a set in Isle Royale to read Boom on my trip there so I decidedn this Judge Dredd one So good It was lovely to read this book while I wasn the island but beyond that connection the way Barr writes about nature and the park is spellbinding What a wonderful way to learn about a National Park Additionally I found Anna Pigeon to be a really compelling character loved her inner voice and the fact that she s a and the fact that she s a year Midnight Runners old woman with no kids leading a not so traditional life Will definitely be readingf this series Isle Royale National Park Lake Superior MichiganPhoto by Lorelei Lane Rocky lichen covered shoreline f Mott IslandPhoto by gsgeorge Rock Harbor Light in FogPhoto by hkayeor Underwater photo from Scuba Emporium Chicago Illinois This is a review Sea Creatures 4 of the audiobook Though this novel isn t written in first person pointf view Barbara Rosenblat sounds like the way I think Anna Pigeon would She does a nice job here narrating While she doesn t do a lot Dreidel Dreidel Dreidel of vocal ranges for the many characters she does a good jobf telling the story and delivering Anna s thought processEach book in this series has a different background setting in a US National Park this ne is set in Isle Royale National Park an isolated spot where wolves and moose abound far from the sights and sounds f everyday civilization As a protagonist I enjoy Ann.
