Inhaltsangabe

Set in the 1850s, The All-True Travels and Adventures of Lidie Newton speaks to you in a splendidly quirky voice: the strong, wry, no-nonsense voice of Lidie Harkness of Quincy, Illinois, a young woman of courage, good sense, and good heart. It carries you into an America so violently torn apart by the question of slavery that it makes our current political battlegrounds seem a peaceable kingdom.

Lidie grows increasingly important to you as you follow her travels and adventures on the feverish eve of the War Between the States. With its crackling portrayal of a totally individual and wonderfully articulate woman, its storytelling drive, and its powerful recapturing of an almost forgotten part of the American story, Jane Smiley is at her enthralling and enriching best.

©1998 by Jane Smiley; (P)1998 by Random House, Inc.

Kritikerstimmen

"An immensely appealing heroine, a historical setting converyed with impressive fidelity, a charming and poignant love story." (Publishers Weekly)

    "5 stars for performance, 1 for story"

    Anna Fields reads beautifully, as always. The recording itself is of poor quality, however, despite the .aax format.

    The story itself is long-winded, slow and tedious. I'm about through with the first part, and I doubt that I'll be bored enough to get to the second and third.

    I didn't get any feel for the characters, especially Lidie herself. I usually like historical fiction but this has too much history and too little story. The hardships of such settlers are depicted but the reader is always kept at a distance from the hardships and the characters.

    I wouldn't buy it a second time because of the boring story and the poor quality of the recording which lessens Anna Field's great performance.
