Bottom line. I love these book and I love this series. McMurty has such a great way to develop each character. I would recommend this book and when it is done, I will be sad that it is over.
I love the characters. From the young bull to the blue pigs from the to the lonely Irishmen to Wilbur and of course the regular cast of characters. I love how Gus makes me laugh and how Woodrow makes me think. This book is loaded with all of these different personalities. Even the animals in the story have interesting personalities
The cattle drive. I just imagine how it would have been to part of a drive of 2500
The reader was good but Will Patton would have been better
I can't decide what I loved more. The epic story or Lee Horsley's performance. Both kept me on my seat and longing to hear more. I'd often rewind the story to either hear the narrative again or Lee's unique vocal take on the different characters.
ive listened to several hundred books, this is my favorite
his animation of the characters. you immediately know each one so individual
none. they would smell to bad.
it has been on my wish list a long time. i wish that id bought it sooner
This book, unlike most of the popular books these days, is not action pack or fast pace. It is a beautiful journey full of thoughts of life, philosophy and characters struggling to find themselves and their place in the world. Those that are patience with it will be rewarded with its unexpected charm and thoughtfulness.
You won't regret using your free audible credit for this McMurtry classic. Lee Horsley's reading is brilliant and will have you quoting lines from the book all day.
It is a very good story. The narrator's Gus though sounds like a poor impersonation of Bill Cosby and takes awhile to get use to. However, overall it was very good.
