never read the print edition
near then end of the story as Call was looking over the sign Gus had made and saw it was fading away - just like their lives and their times.
color and humor
Lonesome Dove has been a favorite of mine in book and movie. I was looking forward to listening to this book. Lee Horsley's interpretation of Gus is especially annoying. If I wasn't a new member at audible.com I would return this book.
All of the "Lonesome Dove" Series if Horsley hasn't performed. The "Last Picture" show series is good to. Catch "Duane's Depressed".
A guy can't read this books without wishing he had the best of Gus and Call's qualities.
The phone application I put the book on is a winner.
What a great, great book. Larry McMurtry is simply an outstanding storyteller. Lee Horsely's performance as the reader on this audiobook should be the standard against which others are judged. This is 56 hours of pure listening joy and entertainment.
One of the best audiobooks I have listened to so far. Entertaining with amazing narrator. Each character comes to life with their own voice and personality. Even if you have never read a country western book (like me), you will not be disappointed. This is story telling at its best that anyone can appreciate.
The story is the best!! I had significant payback problems that were finally solved after three calls to Audible.
This book reveals so much about the environment, the people, the challenges and the times they lived in that it fills in all the gaps left from watching western movies as a child. Mostly it makes you aware that of some of the things that happened in the terraforming of a continent have also formed the America that we see today.Captain Gus McCready gets my vote as the great philosopher, environmentalist cowboy of all time.
Has to be one of the great clasics of all time. The dialogue in this book is masterful. Saturday Night Live writers couldn't come up with better stuff than this.

He didn't just read the book, he understood it and the characters.
