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.
Dusty Rhodes is a wonderful author, whom I've just recently discovered. The Longhorn Series is very well written and Gene Engene gave a great performance.
Like Louis L'Amour, Dusty Rhodes has the ability to draw you into the story, to depict the characters and their surroundings without going into great detail.
The one thing I would change if I could, is the abrupt changing from one character to the other without warning. If you are not listening intently it takes awhile to realize the scene and characters have changed.
If you like westerns, you will not be disappointed, they're great entertainment.
Yes, I KNOW "Big Rock..." is fiction. But it consists almost entirely of events in Stegner's life, even actual conversations (Jackson Benson's "Wallace Stegner, His Life and Work" is highly recommended as a companion piece). Heartbreaking. Riveting. THIS is the Stegner book that should have won Pulitzer. Narrator Bramhall deserves 5 stars, too. He uses a good variety of voices for the many characters in the story (he's especially good with foreign dialects).
