Was I rooting for the ladies - sure. But, the story was way longer than it needed to be. My biggest problem is that Ms. Barr must have had a thesaurus at her side while writing this.

I consider myself to be a dot above average with words, but I don't think the average reader should have had to look up: creel, Ersatz Burnoose, swale, treacle, crepitus, basilisk, triptych, ersatz, lagniappe, stygian, hoarfrost, ordure, and the term "gangs agley. This was her most spelling binding story yet. It involves two women, their daughters and a service dog as well as Anna.
One of the women is in a wheel chair and all of them are heading into the north country for a several day canoe trip far from roads and civilisation. One of the women is a top notch outdoor gear designer and they are testing prototypes for outdoor gear for the disabled. Along comes a group of men hell bent on kidnapping the designer and her young daughter. It just keeps getting worse She drops a lot of names without a clear connection with her storyline.

She also makes errors about things like tool usage or what basic items someone who is skilled in backcountry camping would always have with them on trip like the one Anna was going to take. Excuse given that she lost too many pocket knives going through TSA screenings at airports?!? What about checked bags? Or pick one up at your destination before going into the woods? Granted Anna was going through issues from killing a man up in the wilderness during a winter wolf study. Search and Rescue groups spend countless hours, days and weeks trying to find hikers and boaters that headed out unprepared for the worst.
The worst happens too often. That being said, Anna made up for it and kicked butt. I haven't read a Nevada Barr book in a while, and although this wasn't a horrible story, it was definitely not a compelling one either.

Most of the people involved in this story were annoying or unlikeable and the whole plot seemed to revolve around what is definitely the worst of human foibles and behavior by all that went far enough beyond weird as to be ridiculous. The bad guys didn't seem to make much sense, the purpose of their illegal activities wasn't particularly believable, and they seemed amazing stupid for the kidnapping they undertook. This story might have been a little better if the women, including Anna Pigeon, had been a more cohesive group.
Instead they were whiny, self-centered and essentially helpless. In fact, in thinking about how much this annoyed me, maybe it was a horrible story. It was essentially an endless story of this horrible thing happened, then this horrible thing happened - meanwhile, the "heroines" were whining - and then this horrible thing happened. If you love Nevada Barr, maybe you'll like this book - but I'd advise borrowing it from the library instead of buying it. It's just not worth the money. I've got confusing and murky feelings about "Destroyer Angel. We're immersed in everyone's perspective serially.
I didn't see the point of reading observations by the four immoral and amoral, vicious men, who invade, disrupt and violate the lives of women.
The men's ruminations and attitudes added nothing constructive to the story. Once past being bogged down, the tale of the unclear purpose of the men becomes slowly more clear, but doesn't reveal itself completely. The troop of people get moving through the woods, and the story resumes its progress too. None of the women has had an experience of this kind, though one of them did survive cruel treatment at a young age.
It's a learning experience, a revealing experience for each of them. Their fortitude is tested; their resilience is revealed and challenged; self-pity is acknowledged and examined. Meanwhile, all eight of them march, struggle and straggle through early Fall thickly wooded northern Minnesota woods, where the night sounds, mysteries and chill scares and threatens, men and women alike.
One of the destroyer angels of our story, the fifth woman of the camping, vacationing five, away from her friends when the wicked fellows enters the women's encampment, tracks the eight. She's the one with the back-country experience, demonstrating her skills, patiently waiting to provide help when possible.
Her silent and unseen tracking aids her and her friends in fear-generating ways for the men. The physical punishment and emotional assaults the captives suffer appears impossible to withstand. Is that a statement more about me, and my perception of them being women and less capable of weathering their ordeal than men? That's possible.
Three of the women endure what seems like unendurable abuse, yet they all stagger forward. Nearly all the men in the story are contemptible, at best. That's not just the men in the woods. Men may hold the women hostage; yet they feel fear greater than the women. The women are remarkable.
It's reasonable to call "Destroyer Angel" a feminist back-country tale about tough and strong young and adult women done well. Gehen Sie zu Amazon. Entdecken Sie jetzt alle Amazon Prime-Vorteile.
