Professional reviews

"This famous novel portraying the lives of Swedish immigrants in turn-of-the-century Nebraska must have sorely challenged narrator Kate Reading. She nails the various accents of her characters and delivers the vivid narrative with dulcet tones and magnificent phrasing. Still, the narration is dull, almost plodding, the result of too much detachment. Whereas the author expresses a deeply intimate knowledge and concern for her folk and their doings, Reading simply doesn't engage. Her voice is a godlike mask, too lofty to care about the plain, hardworking farmers that populate the book. So while listeners will enjoy the beauty of her delivery, they will have to concentrate a bit harder than usual to find Willa Cather underneath. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
