    1. Good story but chick lit than historical fiction, the characters are modern than you would expect in a pre historical setting I prefer the author when she writes Fantasy genre novels under the pseudonym Robin Hobb.

    2. This book is about the cultural life of a remote aboriginal community in the Prehistoric land of the Siberian Arctic Reindeer are a part of their daily living.Megan Lindholm is actually Robin Hobb so anyone who has read and enjoyed Robin s books would probably enjoy this book too But be warned this book is very different from Robin Hobb s books The novel is centred in the harsh wilderness of a prehistoric North America The tribe of aborigines survive by battling against enemy tribes and fierce p [...]

    3. Whether she is penning epic fantasies under the name of Robin Hobb or telling contemporary fantasies set in the harsh wilderness of prehistoric North America under the pseudonym of Megan Lindholm, Margaret Astrid Lindholm Ogden is undoubtedly one of the best novelists that I have had the pleasure of reading Not once have I felt let down by one of her novels 11 and counting now as each is populated by such well sketched characters that you can t but help being drawn into their everyday trial and [...]

    4. Op zoek naar een boek met dieren op de cover voor de februari challenge op de ff leesclub, kwam ik dit boek tegen op mijn NTL stapel Ik moet het al zeker 18 jaar daar hebben staan, dus het werd wel tijd Dit boek viel me in het begin wat tegen, want ik verwachtte een Robin Hobb te lezen Megan Lindholm aka Robin Hobb Het is duidelijk anders, maar zeker niet slecht En tegen het eind zelfs nog spannend genoeg om het snel uit te willen lezen Ik ga zeker door in deel 2 Een 7, maar hier een 8 want een [...]

    5. I read and liked Lindholm s Wizard of the Pigeons, but UF not being my thing, I didn t love it, not enough to buy something else written by her It took me years to try again, and I m glad I finally did I enjoyed Reindeer People so much that the first thing I did after finishing it was to order Wolf s Brother.I have been giving fantasy a go of late in favor of other genres, and this book was a nice way to ease back into my comfort zone, it not being full of typical fantasy tropes and settings As [...]

    6. I like Robin Hobb s books a lot, so when I found out she has also published a bunch under Megan Lindholm of course I had to go get them These were the first I read under this name It s really one story, that was originally divided in two by the publisher, and later pout out as an omnibus called The Saga of the Reindeer People I m not sure why she uses two different names The style of writing was recognizably the same, although this story is somewhat darker than many of her epic Robin Hobb fantas [...]

    7. I remember liking these books a lot when I first read them in Dutch and reading the English original hasn t changed my opinion that much What I don t remember noticing is the abrupt ending of this novel I might very well have read them back to back the first time around When Lindholm wrote these books she already had a few books under her belt and they are much confident than the first Ki and Vandien stories Apart from the slightly awkward split, these two novels are among the better ones she w [...]

    8. I m almost out of Robin Hobb books to read, so I thought I d try out Reindeer people I saw another reviewer describe this as chick lit I guess, kind of Meticulously researched, beautifully written chick lit Romance really takes a back seat though, and that s if you squint.Tillu, our main character, is a single parent of a child with learning disabilities, who was fathered via month long abuse at the hands of raiders Yeah, she s got a pretty tough life Add to that the fact that the manipulative s [...]

    9. Robin Hobb always manages to make me hate a character so much I want to throw the book in a fire.The book s main character, Kerleu, is such a hateful little male human being, and that Carp as well, especially with his this is not for a woman speeches Not to forget Joboam I found those three characters to think very high of themselves while they were the most hateful and stupid ones.It always strikes right to me when a woman character is not treated as a male character s equal, and even when wom [...]

    10. I truly, truly love the books the author has written as Robin Hobb Fitz is one of my favorite characters.But this one For me it is not a good sign that I can or less forget about a book that I m reading Kerlew is not a character I can relate to or even like In the first half of the book I was even wondering where the story would go to I was over half of the book before it became kind of interesting So I did finish the book, but I m not sure I will read the sequel.

    11. This has to be my first pre historical fiction fantasy novel But it s by Megan Lindholm aka Robin Hobb, so it can t be bad Right Well I found it not as exciting as Alien Earth, to be honest But as it s a totally different story and setting, you can t really compare the two but in writing style, I d say Here Megan has had a very descriptive style She put a lot of detail in describing the scenery, the actions, and so on, and used enough specific vocabulary to describe animals, the tribe, That sort [...]

    12. I just couldn t get on board with this one not because the writing is bad, let me stress In fact, early on in the book I was quite optimistic about continuing this series, because I loved the vivid imagery and the quality of descriptions But because the story was one I just found so relentlessly grim It s a personal taste thing.

    13. Character driven book Lots of survival tribal stuff Great read if you re interested in social dynamics in a harsher time.

    14. I love her series from fitz and bingtown, but between soldier son and this book its like she spent every ounce of energy she had describing them as offensively as possible I pushed through soldier son but fuck doing it again as she uses the most vile ableist descriptors possible for a disabled kid fuck, there s realism and there s brutal ableism This goes beyond realism by miles.

    15. les lectures de ice queenEn voyant le titre, j ai tout de suite craqu En ce qui me concerne, d s qu un livre parle de peuples nordiques, de rennes ou tout ce qui s y rapporte, j ach te directement Et l ce fut le cas, je n avais m me pas lu le r sum d ailleurs Et il faut dire que la couverture est vraiment tr s belle, tout fait dans l esprit du roman.D s les premi res pages, nous faisons la connaissance de Tillu, une femme courageuse, excellente gu risseuse, au pass tourment et l avenir incertain [...]

    16. It seems I have a soft spot for novels set in the harsh wilderness of North American winters This is the first Megan Lindholm Robin Hobb book that I ve ever read, after having heard excellent things about her fantasy books and although I m sure this is not one of the books people have in mind when they talk about her, it doesn t disappoint It s unsurprisingly reminiscent of Jean Auel s novels enchanting, with a world of two different species of humans mixing, the characters vivid and each with t [...]

    17. This is the first half of the Saga of the Reindeer People before Wolf s Brother.Tillu is a young healer who lives with her strange son Kerlew with Benu s nomadic tribe in the north The tribe s repulsive shaman, Carp, has a strange power over her son and wants to teach him his magic He also constantly harrasses Tillu, trying to bed her.Terrified of the old man and tired of seeing her son continuously bullied, one night she flees through the frozen, winter ravaged land, leaving the tribe behind Sh [...]

    18. I ve slowly been working my way through the Lindholm archive as I ve found them available It isn t easy to get a hold of this book in the US.Of all her novels, The Reindeer People are the books I looked forward to reading the least Nothing about the premise or setting interested me I didn t want to read about as I perceived it a bunch of Eskimos But I wanted a nice Wintry book to read for the season, and landed here.These books blew me away.I am stunned at how hooking this story was It was so re [...]

    20. I m so glad that someone introduced me to Robin Hobb aka Megan Lindholm a few years ago I ll never forget that kind person, as the Farseer books were an incredible experience and remain very dear to me I ve read them a few times too, which is not something I do often.What a storyteller she is I can t believe I have left it so long to read her work written as Megan Lindholm.This book cast a spell over me and I was quickly absorbed into it s world, so that it was read in very few sittings.Both the [...]

    21. Robin Hobb writes very energetic high fantasy, as I call her style Under her Megan Lindholm pseudonym, she seems rather grounded in the natural world These books, written early in her career, are hard to come by in local libraries, but a worth finding Her style is workmanlike and less seismic The fantastic and magical can be seen as shamanistic vision in The Reindeer People Tillu is a healer, probably some time in the Pleistocene and somewhere in the arctic tundra of Old Europe, perhaps even S [...]

    22. I love it when Lindholm writes about communities There is always a moment of insight when a character realizes something that I failed to notice, either in the story or in a similar situation from my own experience.I m placing this close to the Rain Wilds Chronicles It is small world ish and less epic than The Farseer Trilogy, and on the realistic side Yes there is shamanism, but you can dismiss it as superstition if you want, although it gets denser towards the end.On the downside, there is s [...]

    23. So it has been quite a while since I actually read this book, but I was going to start reading the next part of the story very soon, and so I thought I d put some kind of perfunctory review for the first part.The upshot is this I really enjoyed this book, than I thought I would Honestly, the rating kind of threw me off before picking this up, but I am very glad I did The writing was fabulous, the characters likeable and weird and just fitting with this prehistoric, dark atmosphere that permeate [...]

    24. This was a surprise Recommended based on some algorithm , but actually a book by the same author who uses the Robin Hobb name one of my favorite authors, and this book didn t let me down.This reminds me a lot of Shaman as it is about a group of people that are in the early bronze age and struggling to live in the far nothern tundra and forests The main story is about a woman Tillu and her child who is apparently slightly touched She flees the advances of a tribes s shaman and tries to live alone [...]

    25. I did start reading this before 14 September, but I don t recall exactly when And I set it aside for Fool s Quest.I ve only ever read one Megan Lindholm book previously and I wasn t actually that taken with it I know that Megan is Robin Hobb I m not entirely sure why this was written under this pen name instead of the other There s just as much magic in this tale as in any written under Robin Hobb And I m looking forward to the sequel I don t care much for Carp, and I m glad Tillu left the first [...]

    26. I didn t know this was a reissue from the backlist of titles by Megan Lindholm s books Megan Lindholm also writes as Robin Hobbs or should that be Robin Hobbs also writes as Megan Lindolm This was, as you d expect, good, solid writing with believable and endearing central characters I feel Hobbs Lindholm always uses what she knows in fantasy and the character of Elsa s son is particularly well drawn I love the domestic details of fantasy like this and there s solid research behind this book I wa [...]

    27. Megan Lindholm also writes as Robin Hobb, who is one of my favorite authors, so I decided to check this out As Robin Hobb she s sci fi fantasy As Lindholm she s classic fiction although there is some fantastical element, its very subtle The story chronicles a stone age inuit mother and her autistic son, who are forced to travel from tribe to tribe as the son s odd behaviors make him a cast off Its not really my cup of tea as a plot, but the book was well written, and really gives a nice feel o [...]

    28. A very enjoyable fantasy novel What I found most interesting we re the marks of Lindholm s work as Robin Hobb The detailed description of a world that comes alive as you read, the flawed characters who slowly work out their problems and the outsiders trying to find their place In Kerlev one even catches a glimpse of a white prophet, weaving fates together like strings There s also some Kerlev in Thick from the Tawny Man trilogy Highly recommended, especially for fans of Hobb s well known work.

    29. I have been a huge fan of Robin Hobb since I was about 15 I love the Farseer Books and eagerly read everything Ms Hobb writes I knew that she also wrote as Megan Lindholm, but had never read her work under this pseudonym If I hadn t have know they were the same author, I honestly don t think I would ve picked it from reading this book I enjoyed the story, but it certainly didn t grab me the way her work as Robin Hobb has.
