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.
Don't Miss This Engaging Read 4 agosto 2013
Di Barbecar - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This first published novel by Catherine Koons Hubbard ticks all the boxes. It is suspenseful, and I guarantee that you will be hooked after reading the first chapter or two--a real page-turner! It has well-developed characters, whose dialogue and actions readily connect to those in every reader's experience. The depth of information about the natural world and Zuni culture of the Southwest stimulate the reader and add another dimension of enjoyment. Intricate and delicate relationships among characters, centering on the main character Megan Dye, further engage the reader and contribute to the satisfying, realistic ending. This is a novel whose depth and resonance will pique the interest of the most jaded reader.
Wonderful read 16 giugno 2013
Di Tara C. McAuliff - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Rain Clouds over Zuni Station is a wonderful read, both for teenagers and for young adults. The main character Megan's story is wonderful - sad at points, but hopeful and for anyone who has had any struggles in life very relatable.

The bulk of the story is based in New Mexico and has lots of references to Navajo and Zuni life and culture, which added such a wonderful extra element to the story. The author's description really brought everything to life, so in addition to reading a fabulous story, you can also feel like you're on a bit of a vacation!
An intelligent mystery 31 luglio 2013

I loved Catherine's first book! I finished it in less than 36 hours because I couldn't put it down! I'm not usually such a fast reader, but I was hooked from the mysterious first chapter. Catherine's detailed naturalists' descriptions and well crafted characters made the story line realistic, as if Megan Dye were a friend telling me the story after returning from a summer adventure. This is a must read for anyone looking for an intelligent mystery novel!
