A servant girl escapes from a colonial settlement in the wilderness. She carries nothing with her but her wits, a few possessions, and the spark of god that burns hot within her. What she finds in this terra incognita is beyond the limits of her imagination and will bend her belief in everything that her own civilization has taught her. Lauren Groff's new novel is at once a thrilling adventure story and a penetrating fable about trying to find a new way of living in a world succumbing to the churn of colonialism. The Vaster Wilds is a work of raw and prophetic power that tells the story of America in miniature, through one girl at a hinge point in history, to ask how--and if--we can adapt quickly enough to save ourselves.… (mere)

Not sure what to think about this one. It is primarily a story of survival, full of just in the nick of time escapes, miraculous discoveries of food and water sources, unlikely ecounters with animals, and lots of dirt, mud, snow, rain, and hail. The girl who escapes the famine-stricken colonial settlement on the James River (sometime in the 1600's) is a servant fleeing grief and horror, with a vague plan to head north to Canadian French lands. A really good setup, that in the end left me puzzled and dissatisfied. We are in the girl's head as she grapples with her religious indoctrination pitted against her memories of those with power over her and how they exerted that power, and her single act of rebellion. Missing was any real engagement with other characters. The writing is superb and the depictions of the virgin American landscape very compelling. Many hints at the desctructive forces coming in the future. All in all, a bit of a miss for me. ( )

Wow, just going to write down some of my gut reactions to The Vaster Wilds by Lauren Groff. I think I would have rated this a 3-star, but bumped it up to 4-star because I listened to the audiobook edition narrated by one of my favs, January LaVoy.

Ethereal, historical fiction tangentially about the Jamestown settlement.
But really, this is a survival tale about a teenaged girl, not just in the wilds of early colonial America, but from the lot in life into which she was born. This was recommended to me, but I wasn't prepared for what I would classify the horrors, sorrows and mishaps which she experiences and relates in flashbacks. They said that former President Obama had it on his 2023 favs list. I've got a bone to pick with the recommender! :-)

I found it a bit hard to believe of the survival skills this teenager had, especially since she came from living in a city in England. But I guess she was a servant and always scrappy, so maybe her intelligence was her boon.

The metaphysical ending confused me a bit: I THINK the present time story really only takes place in the span of less than a year, but I'm not 100% sure.

But the written words, especially the descriptions of nature, are beautiful... still nightmarish, but beautiful. ( )

3.99? I hesitate to give it a 4, but it got close…

This was reminiscent of The Bear for me…for all intents and purposes, it is partially the story of a girl alone in the world, how she survives, what thoughts go through a human’s mind when they are completely alone, how she moves through the situation in the wild.

The rest of the story is a dark story of the life she lived NOT alone, the sadness, the few good moments, the horrors of sickness and man’s evil, and her feeling alone…a nobody, a nothing.

Dark and slow and well written, but didn’t match my mood of incoming summer weather. ( )

The writing is lovely but the book is truly bleak and depressing.
I’ve loved books about survival and loneliness (I who have never known men or the road) - but this was repetitive and didn’t possess the emotional depth or attachment to character that I need to appreciate the desolation and brutality of just surviving. ( )

Recommended to me by Barack Obama. Sipped this one slowly.
