Sintesi dell'editore

Katsuk, a militant Native American student, has kidnapped 13-year-old David Marshall - the son of the US undersecretary of state. He and his young hostage flee into the deepest wilds of the Pacific Northwest, where they must work together to survive as teams of hunters try to track them. Even as he struggles to escape, David begins to feel a certain amount of respect for his captor. What the boy does not know, however, is that he has been chosen as an innocent from the white world for an ancient sacrifice of vengeance. And Katsuk may be divinely inspired - or simply insane.

This tale of vengeance and sacrifice touches upon many Native American myths even as it reveals various truths in its antihero.

culture/religion blunders

This book is a bit dated much like many of Stephen King's works and I feel like of all the many native north american cultures this didn't accurately portray any of them. I get the narrative I really do, I just know that the native americans culture was, and is, quite peaceful and the characters all approach situations in a very white (reactive) way.

Awesome Listen

Read the book years ago and enjoyed it then. Scott Brick brings it to life superbly in the audio version. I could not stop listening. Never realized it before, but the end of the book seems to have a bit of a Stockholm syndrome to it. Probably because I didn’t know what Stockholm syndrome was when I read the book years ago.

listen 1 0 0 % worth it even sans capitalization

as a reconstructionist, I must admit that paganism in any form results in the climax of this story in one way or another. ultimate reality demands a Savior. Choose One who can save. Christ is Lord of all.

Mentally challenging

What did you love best about Soul Catcher?

Looked at the challenges different people have when there culture and religion is not shared by the majority of people. Very philosophical and challenging book.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, but not because of the storyline. The need to continue reading is based on the need to uncover your own opinions and compare and contrast them to the authors.

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

The soul catcher

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending was extremely moving and touching.

Any additional comments?

Frank Herbert is always ahead of his time.

Good enough to eat up time.

A decent telling of what might be the day in the life of a psychotic Native American, but rather anticlimactic.

Wonderful Book

First, let me mention that Scott Brick makes any book sound like poetry! He does a great job. I will not go into detail about the book other than to say-- read it, I liked it.

Beautiful, captivating and gut-wrenching

This tale brims with the soul of indigenous people. I loved the truth of it and the beauty of a young man as he learns and grows. This story transported me and enthralled me right up to its inevitable conclusion.

Narrator too Effusive

Story is interesting, but narrator is far too effusive, though skilled. Prefer 'invisible' narrator, this one distracting for this genre (poetry possibly more suitable)

Soul Catcher's Triumph

Very well read. Interesting story, almost like poetry. First Herbert book I've read. Tried Dune once but it didn't capture my interest.

Best book I've listened to in many years!

This book was amazing. I have not read any that compare with it in many years! Great job Jonathan! and the narration made you believe that you were right along side them!
