Inhaltsangabe: A pack of wolves makes a sudden savage return to the Rocky Mountain ranching town of Hope, Montana, where a century earlier they were slaughtered by the thousands. Now shielded by law as an endangered species, they reawaken an ancient hatred that will tear a family, and ultimately the town, apart.
At the center of the storm is Helen Ross, a twenty-nine-year-old wolf biologist sent alone into the hostile countryside to protect the wolves from those who seek to destroy them.
The Loop charts her struggle, and her dangerous love affair with the son of her most powerful opponent, the brutal and charismatic rancher Buck Calder.
A haunting exploration of man's conflict with nature and the wild within himself, an epic story of deadly passions and redemptive love set against the grandeur of the American West, The Loop is destined to capture the hearts and imaginations of listeners everywhere.
Review: In this unabridged audio version of The Loop by Nicholas Evans (The Horse Whisperer), actor-narrator John Bedford Lloyd (Philadelphia) delivers a calm, almost casual read. It's a wise choice, not just because of the version's 14-plus hour length, but for the subtle way he allows the deeply textured story to unfold on its own, revealing a complex weave of compelling plot lines that form a circle of love, hate, trust, and suspicion.
Using the controversial reintroduction of wolves into the American West as its catalyst, Evans pits a powerful Montana rancher against a struggling wolf pack, the wildlife agents mandated to protect the animals and, ultimately, recalcitrant members of his own family. "Luke could taste blood starting, salty and metallic, inside his mouth. He stared at his father, who stood glaring at him, his massive chest heaving and his neck flushed with anger."
Evans has loaded his characters with deep secrets and hidden agendas, creating a potent mix that teeters perilously close to the edge of believability. But his technique is solid enough to keep the story grounded. Lloyd's understated delivery, which stands alone with no music cues or sound effects, lets the action move forward without slipping into the realm of melodrama.
