What made the experience of listening to The Far Journey the most enjoyable?
Everything made this listening experience enjoyable. Great story, historically accurate, well presented by an engaging narrator. I was riveted from start to finish. A book for young and old. alike. I have to wonder if the author is a teacher because he has captured the teen of today very well. It was fascinating to see the chinks in her armor and how those were revealed more and more as her challenge goes on. We all think our lives are so hard at times but this novel brings it home that we have no idea what hard really is.
The Far Journey: A Timeslip Novel of Survival on the Oregon Trail
: Tom Reppert
A self absorbed sixteen year old girl finds herself flung back in history, 1880's Oregon Trail traveling from the East to West . A wonderful tale with time travel, historical fiction, romance, hardships, Indian attacks, buffalo stampede, illness, injury and many other emotional events. I was drawn into the journey and felt many of the things Paula felt. I hope to find more by this author in the same genre.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Patricia Santomasso brings these characters to life.

The story is wonderful and so realistic that I can't help but imagine that a lot of research was done in preparation for this book. I was swept away and felt like I was discovering the past along with our main character.
I love time travel stories, but so often they are the rinse and repeat love stories we've all read, set in a distant time. This book is nothing like that. There is love in the story, but more than that, there is life!
Narration was beyond impressive. Santomasso portrays each character so distinctly that you never have to wonder who is speaking... which is incredible given the sheer number of people in the story. Not to mention how effortlessly she can adjust not only the voices but the speed and style of each character's speech. She had me convinced that she was a black man, an Indian chief, a small child, a teenage girl, and on and on. Spectacular!
I would love to read more stories of this caliber, Tom Reppert... hint, hint. :)
