Though Not Dead

Though Not Dead - Dana Stabenow This was by far NOT my favorite of all the Date Shugak books. Yes it was interesting to learn about Alaska's history (EVERY book she writes and publishes if full of history) but it was too much for me. I also didn't like that seemed to be a puzzle that Old Sam concocted for Kate to solve and with him leaving out vital information (as you will see if you read the whole book) it becomes an annoyingly frustrating read.

Kate being hit in the head (or shot) AND a car accident was just a little too much for me to stomach-yes I know this is fiction, but the fact is most people wouldn't be able to function with this much head trauma. Having so many different people after Kate and the artifact AND the manuscript was just a little too much for me.

I don't really recommend this book unless you love History and really difficult puzzles!
