Has anyone read The Great Alone? Thoughts?
It’s really good.
Not a fan.
I absolutely loved it! Wasn’t sure where it was going at first but it’s definitely worth the read.
It was a slow start but I would give it a thumbs up.
I really loved it! My favorite this year ?
Loved it! Stayed up until 2:30 to finish it
I had huge expectations when I started and I loved it!
Loved it !
Couldn’t get past the first few chapters
I loved it!
Wildly popular.. however, I didn’t care for it at all . One of the few books I didn’t push through to finish
It was ok, but definitely not one of her better novels.
Definitely not. I couldn’t wait to be DONE with it.
It was a good book, not a great book
Didn’t love it.
Very descriptive and a great story telling experience.
Are you asking because you are considering reading it? Or asking beacuse you read it and want to open a discussion about it? I just wasn’t sure how to answer. I read it and loved it. But if you don’t like nature and outdoor survival type stuff, it could possibly get into too much detail for some. But I adored it!
@Michelle I’m asking bc I’m considering reading it. ?
@Angela ok good! Then I answered the right question! Happy reading!
It was a good book. It was a bit of a slow start and the end dragged. I read it after reading The Nightingale hoping it would be as good. In my opinion it was not, but I still enjoyed most of it.
I really liked it
Hated it. It was good until it wasn’t.
It is very good, made me think a lot. It’s also infuriating through large parts where I wanted to hurt certain characters.
A great read
very good. I was very mad at a few characters, and it ended up going in a direction that I wasn’t expecting, but overall, I’m glad I read it. ?
I really liked it. It was a different kind of story that takes place in Alaska.
Yes, read it. Didn’t love it but many on here enjoyed it. Hope you do.
Love it, best book i read this year.
It was pretty good but not fabulous. The end was trite and predictable. The description of survival in Alaska was the most interesting part. I wasn’t at all interested in the teenage romance and I thought it was too accepting of the violent codependent relationship between the parents.
Loved it! Not my favorite Kristen Hannah book, but overall great.
I didn’t like it at all
Keeping in Kristin Hannah fashion… I felt it was good, then slow, then got good again and the ending felt rushed. I enjoy her books but they all seem to go in that way (for me). It can be triggering because there is domestic violence. Just a warning to you or anyone else who may want to read it.
I agree about the ending. I still loved it!
I liked it but it was not as good as some of her other books.
I loved it!!! Kept my interest throughout the whole book. I was sad when it ended.
Great book. I’d even read it again
Loved it ❤️
Well written. Very good book.
Abandoned about 5 chapters. V slow
me too, and i thought unbelievable
is it the book About Alaska ?
One of my favorites for this year
stayed with me for ages after I’d finished it. Loved it.
I loved it too. Really well written
Amazing beautiful book
One of my best reads this year!
7 stars out of 10.
I just finished it. I was really disappointed in it. It’s so depressing, and I didn’t think the writing was all that great to be honest. I love KH but this was not one of my faves..
It was ok. I finished it because i don’t like to give up on books but I wasn’t a fan of the writing. The story was good but I felt the character development and writing were both very poor.
Oh my goodness. It was so good. I was not overly excited to read it but was totally drawn in. Alaska itself was like another character in the book.
Oh, I love that: Alaska itself was like another character in the book! 🙂
First half kept my attention, second half was a chore to read.
@Phyllis I read ahead to find out what happened and I did feel that it took a while to read the end.
Yes, I skimmed the entire second half. Much too long in my opinion.
I enjoyed the whole thing.
I really liked it for the tough topics that were addressed but the location of the story.
It’s a very moving story!
The best book I read this year.
And I didn’t think it was a mystery so the predictability of it was not a big deal, although some things were a surprise
Slow start for me
Powerful! My favorite read of 2018
Very good. Really enjoyed it although my two sisters couldn’t understand why I loved it!!
@Vana cause it was like watching paint dry ?
Oh Viv that’s a bit strong!
@Vivienne We are all entitled to our opinions.What one hates, another loves.I liked The Great Alone very much but, of course, you are entited to hate it.
@Vana not taking sides – but Viv is right! ?
Ady & Viv it’s just as well it didn’t cost you anything ??????
@Vana very true- thanks again!!
@Adrianne life would be very boring if we all liked the same thing ?
Stayed with me for ages loved it. Want to visit Alaska now
That’s why I liked it. Alaska is great.
I know I’m in the minority but I did not like it nor did the people in my book club
Likewise. Another recent book set in Alaska is “The Simple Wild” by KA Tucker. I loved it far more than TGA.
Yes – not a favourite I have to say
I enjoyed it. But love Kristen
Loved it best book I’ve read this year.
Loved it! @Erin this is one book and book group you would like too.
I didn’t like it. It was very slow, and so many horrible things happened in the book that I found it to be unbelievable. It definitely stays with you, but not for good reasons.
