A very enjoyable and educational read 1 luglio 2013
Di KaylaInWalla - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This novel is enjoyable on many levels. Primarily, it is the coming-of-age story for a young woman striving to find her place in the world. The characters she interacts with are unique and interesting, and each has his/her own story to contribute. It is easy to become concerned about their narratives and to want to know how they will fare at the end of the book.

On another level, it is a rich chronicle of the creation of the world, a culture, and specific Native American people. Anyone interested in anthropology, archaeology, and Native American history will enjoy this facet of the novel. Vivid descriptions of ceremonies, as well as captivating re-tellings of creation myths, add color and history.

Finally, it teaches us about the natural history of the SW desert. Koons Hubbard inserts intellectual gems so smoothly within Megan's tale, that our appreciation of her surroudings grows as hers does. Just as Megan learns to see beauty and life in the desert, so do our images of the desert become enriched and populated with the diversity of organisms that make up such a complicated, but beautiful ecosystem.

With captivating imagery, believable characters, and an engaging plot line, I highly recommend this book to people of all ages with a spectrum of interests.

A tale that grows in the telling 30 luglio 2013
Di D. Scott - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Chick lit isn't really my thing, but I found this story a compelling read.
It has a great setting and rich characters.

Although the events are a little more subtle than what I'm used to -- not
to spoil anything, but there's no Quentin Tarantino style bloodbath at the
end, more of the opposite in terms of healing and reconciliation --
there's an uplifting plot that includes some memorable struggles (that I
could certainly relate to) regarding the perils of relationships as you
enter adulthood and beyond.

It is also notably not overwrought with pretentious melodrama like other
books in this genre I've tried to leaf through. The added mystery helps
keep your attention too.

I got a little confused over the linear jumps and loose ends with some of
the side characters, but I guess wanting for more flashbacks and
exposition than are included in the novel is probably a good thing.

All in all a worthy read for just about anyone.

I liked the characters and Catherine's method of tying in the Indian culture and nature. It's an easy five star if not higher.
Thoughtfully Crafted 27 ottobre 2013
Di Korinthia Klein - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Rain Clouds Over Zuni Station is an appropriate title for this first novel by Catherine Koons Hubbard because the desert setting for the story is the backbone of the book. No single character truly dominates the narrative, and the trials and tribulations in their lives set upon them as dramatically as the storms that disrupt the landscape they inhabit. I look forward to more work by this author as she continues to develop her voice and writing skills.

I enjoyed this story - it had interesting tidbits of archeological information. Some of the characters got a big buildup, but then weren't developed enough. I kept waiting on the "revelation" being something more sinister than it was. It is a wonderful book for fledgling readers - not as compelling for so "jaded" ones like I am.
