This book.... I can't even begin to say how much I love it I read it about 9 years ago when I was in middle school and It has been my favorite book ever since. Now since this is a short book so I can't really say much with out it being spoilers so from this point if you haven't read it yet stop reading this and start reading the book(view spoiler)[ Typically when I read books with love interests I will always always always want to see the together, but this book was completely different. In the
Jordan enchants me. I can't help it, okay? I love her stories! They're like these heavily-weighted fables with heroines willing to enrage entire nations if they feel the cause is true! Tanith is no exception. More review here:http://strikingkeys.blogspot.com/2017...
This was one of my absolute favorite books as a kid, but for the life of me I couldn't remember the name. Finally, I have found it again! Tempted to give it a re-read, but I'm sure I wouldn't enjoy it as much as 10-year-old me and I don't want to ruin the nostalgia.
So I read this book way back in middle school on recommendation of my cousin. I remember really liking it at the time. I was always really enamored with wolves and the idea of living in harmony with nature. So it felt a lot like Julie's Wolfpack with a more romantic, mystical flair. The words used felt more archaic, which was appealing as inspiration for what I was writing at the time.That said, the same lovely cousin that recommended the book to me in the first place just gifted me a copy of th...
Wolf- woman was howling good. Here let me get it out the way * AWoooooo* cough um yes now where was i. yes this book was great! Yes, I did howl and no I won't do it again…. Not anytime soon anyways. I know you’re thinking Kaila another werewolf one really but nope. This one has a Viking like setting and it involves a slave-like native girl (like Native American). Her people apparently let their children be raised by wolfs. That way the child's soul becomes intertwine with nature the world of an
I read this back when I was on a Sherryl Jordan kick in 2008. I remember liking it, but it wasn't a favorite. It had some heavy messages that spoke to me a bit as I was still in an odd place figuring out a lot of things.
My favourite book as a youngun.
This book… PISSED ME OFF TO NO END!!! Argh! I can’t even BEGIN to tell you how much this book made me angry! It was like getting a pair a’scissors and jabbing them into my eyes whilst dipping my lower body into boiling hot lava, having my skin melt off the bone then having someone stab me multiple times in my torso whilst pouring salt into each cut! Actually, no. IT’S WORSE THAN THAT! But enough about me ranting about how much this book made me angry. Let’s dive straight into the review!Since th...
I have mixed feelings about 'Wolf-Woman'. On the one hand, I liked it, but on the other I didn't. The following are some spoiler examples of why.First off, the book is pretty realistic when it comes to wolf behavior. You can tell that the author did a decent amount of research. However, there were times when the wolves did some very un-wolf like things. The pack's acceptance of Tanith seemed very fast and unnatural, but since it's a pivotal plot point in the book, I won't nit pick too much. (The...
I read this book as a young reader struggling to read alone and it was the beginning of my adventures as a book devourer. I still own a copy and absolutely love this book. It deals with social themes in a haunting setting which will never leave me and inspires my own writing. I will forever be grateful to Sherryl Jordan for opening up the world of books to me as a young girl and for helping that struggling kid who was feeling desperately lonely and like she didn't belong to trust in her imaginat...
I read this book every couple of years. It is one of my favs. I find it haunting, sad, poignant and makes you reflect on life - nature of people etc. This book will always hold a special permanent place in my heart.
I've already read this--and recently. Sometimes I think maybe i read too much.
Ah my beloved obsession with wolves. This fed it well. ^_^
When I read this book it was just called Tanith. It was sad, but I liked it.
Sherryl Jordan’s writing is a bit too spartan, but I enjoyed it. I read the entire 2nd half of the book with my young cousin, and we both mentioned that we were unsure if the choice Tanlith would make. The ending was heartbreaking, and i think the savage HUMAN part of me wanted more justice, but I appreciate that it was in line with the themes introduced in the book. I look forward to reading more by this author.
Really enjoyed this book. It reminds me of Women who run with wolves, but from the teenage native perspective. There is tribe tensions and some backstabbing that pushes you into the next chapter when you said you were going to stop.
It's been a long time, but I seem to recall that the living with wolves part didn't make sense.
I quite enjoyed this and would read again.
Wolf Woman is a compelling story dealing with different kinds of dramas. Tanith is a kinsfolk with the wolves. She is taken by a tribe which despises her and believes she has mingled with the devil himself. They are brutal and victorious. They kill her only friends, the wolves. They use their skin and eat their flesh, Tanith can do nothing as is alone. When her adopted mother who is kind and loving dies, she is blamed for the crisis. She must flee for her safety, but when a young lover traps her...

wow, this book was terrible. first of all, it should NOT have been written in the first person. it completely messed up the plot and added nothing. secondly, it moved really slowly. it also had accusations that made no sense even within the context of the book. it wasn't worth my time to read this, and i will be ridding myself of this book as soon as i can.
Sherryl Jordan's books have always been a "guilty" pleasure for me, by which I mean that her prose is not the most developed (it always seems a little too stiff and formal to me), but I get lost in her worlds and enjoy the ride. Wolf-Woman was a departure from the medieval-England-fantasy-type books of hers I've read, but I enjoyed the change in venues.
I *guess* I really liked this. I don't know, it was so short that it was hard to tell. I think I would have liked it a lot more if I hadn't been in the mood for a happy, romantic ending and then didn't get one.
It was rather short to me, but one of the best books I have ever read..at first I was hoping that the ending would be romantic but to many clues hinted it would end tragically. It inspired me to read and to learn about wolves. Well written and the over all plot was good.
I like this book, despite it being sad that the main character could not find true peace and happiness among people. But it is a story about the freedom that comes from being able to make our own choices.
I liked this book up until the end. I feel she did not give Griban a chance to show her how her life could be in the right clan. I felt how torn she was between living with wolves that saw her as family or with a human clan that saw her as an enemy.
I started out enjoying this book; the concept of 'living with wolves' fascinated me when I was younger (which is when I read this)....but the only thing I remember from the book is that the star characters tribe kills off the pack, her 'family'- leaving them half alive burned and skewered.
My dad retired last year and in looking through his files he found my Silent Sustained Reading Record from when I was in his class.I thought it was interesting to see what I was reading back when I was 13!No rating on this, because I don't remember it at all!
I appreciate the parts with the wolves for I find them educational, but everything in between is pretty shallow, getting a weak way of expansion. The ending just turned me off to the entire thing.I give it a three out of five, if only in recognition of the wolves.
It was pretty good, but the ending wasn't what I would have chosen. I liked Gibran a lot, and the wolves were wonderful additions to the story.
