Ranks with another 5 Star Author Wilbur Smith
Narrator does help to make a memorable experience !
I feel like I got a glimpse into the turn of the 17th century in England and The New World.
You could do a lot worse than trying to emulate the character traits of Barnabas Sackett.
I enjoyed the subtle changes in tone of tener of the voice so that not only could the listener more easily identify who was speaking, it was simply more enjoyable to have it "acted" out.
Why, Barnabas Sackett, of course.
I will listen to NO boring book. Old Fav's,Card, King , Hobb. New Fav's, Hill, Scalzi, Sawyer, Interested in Lansdale, Crouch, Konrath
This dirt poor farmer is walking in the woods, when he discovers some gold coins half buried on his land. Later he gets into a sword fight with a noble and he kicks the noble's butt, a hanging offense. Within five minutes he is best friends with a man he has never meet, but helps him escape the noble. Sackett who until now has lived by himself in a swamp is a natural born leader and men flock to him. He is bigger, faster and smarter then his fellow countrymen and even native American Indians. He is superman and luckyman. When he escapes pirates who are suppose to kill him, but don't, to America, the ship he is looking for with his soon to be girlfriend arrives at the American Coast at the exact spot where he is (twice). The amount of things that just fall into this guys lap happen so often it becomes comical.
If you listen to this, make sure and turn off your brain.
The Sacketts rock
All of them, there awesome.
This was my first listen from him, but now I've listened to most of his and I enjoy them all.
Why Barnabas Sackett of course.
When I've listened to them all, I start over again because I feel like a Sackett so it keeps me alive and I remember my brothers.......weird huh? I named my first born son Nolan, enough said.
Wanda the artist
Truly written with great strength of characters and plots.Enough romance, intrigue and plot to make this Austen reader check in her English books for a bit, as she checked out all of L'Amour's books!!! Awesome. You GOTTA Love those Sacketts.
With a Louis Lamour story, you are transported in time to share in the story, all the excitment and passion that is displayed from the star His characters and colorful descriptions are at the least spell binding and carry you along all the way to the end,and leave you wanting more.
This is the first installment in the popular Sackett series. It's not a western, but it's an epic tale. The early Sackett history mirrors that of the Pilgrim fathers from Great Britain to the New World. It's full of history and adventure! I listen to this one repeatedly. A must-listen for all Sackett fans!
This book and the narration was excellent, capturing our entire family on our drives, that we had to listen to the entire series.
