As a Louis L'Amour fan, I've seen the movie, read the book, and have now enjoyed "The Man Called Noon" in audiobook form. The audiobook being my preference.
Steven Mendel gave a great performance.
If you've never read Louis L'Amour, this would be a great first. If you're a fan, it's a must!
At first I wondered if a book less than 4 hours long would be worth a credit, but I was unfamiliar with the author and wanted to judge for myself....and I can tell you, with a resounding YES, it was well worth the credit.
Be sure to have a box of tissue handy when listening to Abby: Mail Order Bride, you'll need it.
Verna Clay is a very talented author, and I hope Audible will be adding her next book in this series, as well as other books by Ms. Clay.
Although Amy Gramour's voice is rather monotone, it is pleasant and did not distract from this touching, true to life story about a Mail Order Bride from the East traveling to Texas to care for a family of four who had lost their wife and mother the year before.
I recommend it all soft-hearted romantics.
I've just recently started reading and listening to Louis L'Amour books, and find I am hooked. Louis L'Amour is one of the all time great story tellers, and I've never been disappointed in any of his novels. His short stories are good, too...but leave me wanting more. Although I've been happy with audiobooks of his short stories.
"Westward the Tide" has everything you'd expect in a good western, and Robert Petkoff is a great narrator for this book.
If you like action, intrigue, with a little history and romance thrown in you should enjoy "Westward the Tide" .
