I did not want it to end. Kept me riveted on many long drives. Have to go watch the old mini series now.
I loved the unforgettable characters of this story.
Does it make sense to you that I say I like the "big-ness", the epic-ness of such a giant story. It is truly one of the greats.
Mr. Horsley's reading was fantastic, with all his attention to the different voices and his emotion in the telling. He really brings the characters to life.
For me, it's Gus. I love his view of life all around. He is one of a kind. They don't make men like him anymore.
I cannot see that any other audio versions of this story need to be recorded. There is no way they could be better than this one.
Horsley is clearly taking many of his cues from the mini series, a strong choice. I wish they had applied the miniseries score to it as well - the rinky-dink music in this book is not remotely as good. On the whole, though, this is excellent.
Lonesome Dove is a long book to listen to, but it's worth the entire ride, all puns intended. You won't regret listening to this book. It is superbly written and magnificently narrated.
Wooo ohhh weeeeeee
Voices man, voices
Gus..what a guy
So nice I'd read it trice and can't wait to read em all
I just listened to this audiobook again, and loved every minute of it! A timeless story with fabulous narration makes this audiobook a classic. If you love a gripping tale, get this audiobook!
This is my first time listening to Lonesome Dove but I have read it a couple of times before. I saw the mini series first and when you read the story, you can imagine Robert Duval or Tommy Lee Jones reading to you, but unfortunately, when you listen to the story, you hear just the narrator. Listening to Lee Horsley, he always just sounds tired and worn out and breathless. I mean, he's okay but many people were raving about his narration and I didn't think it was that exceptional.
It's a great read. I'm not a Western fan and still love it.
