Moved along at a better pace.
Slow, boring, rambling
Reached chapter 17 of 48 and could take no more, the reading also is so loud for some characters and hardly audible for others.
The narrator's voices were great and portrayed the characters well. I enjoyed the characters of the book as well as the story itself. It was a pleasant journey.
Gus was my favorite character. His ideas about life and events were unique and special and very funny.
It was a book that I listened to slowly so that it did not end too quickly.
I am a Holy Bible Thumping, God loving, Holy Spirit following Jesus Freak.
Bravery, Love, Friendship
Gus saving Laurie from being kidnapped.
Mr. Horsey is the best narrator I have ever heard.
I did want to listen to it all in one sitting.
If I could spend a day with any character, it would be Gus.
I read this every 5 years. Audible is new to me and I found it very enjoyable. I laugh and cry.
You wouldn't think you could get engrossed in something so slow moving as a bunch of cows but the characters of Gus and Captain Call especially were intriguing. The extreme hardship and isolation of the cowhand/ranger/"sporting woman's" life made it so hard for both men and women to communicate in any meaningful way that one's heart just broke wanting them to escape the toungue-tied bonds that kept almost all the characters estranged from one another. No miracles occur, no epiphanies transform selfcontained introverts for the sake of true lurve. They just go on being terribly human and play their lives out and I was so sorry when it ended even after 36 hours.........
The narration is wonderful.
I really enjoyed listening to this old favorite of mine. Brought back a lot of memories, very well done!
Yes, however not for straight laced uptight listeners.
Riders of the Purple Sage.
The name is appropriate.
The narrator made the story come alive.
The best western story.
I would not rename it.
I did not want the story to end.
As an avid reader & audiobook listener, I purchased this title for my skeptical husband who has long suffered from a learning disability that prevents him from enjoying the written word. I asked him to give audiobooks a try & with reluctance, he agreed. Now, the Lonesome Dove experience is all he wishes to talk about...over breakfast, lunch, & dinner. So...from my skeptical husband, 2 thumbs up for Lonesome Dove & audiobooks!
