I listen while doing those tasks when I don't need to be mentally engaged all the time. If I miss something I listen all over again.
I'm hooked on the Lonesome Dove story. Never saw the TV series, but totally captivated by the storyline and snapshot of the characters. The only inaccuracy I saw is the value of a quarter and dollar of the timeline - Dollar for a haircut - I don't think so.
I am a blessed man!
Lonesome Dove is one of the most entertaining novels I have ever read or listened to. This prequel was almost as fun. McMurtry is a great story teller and this novel is historically accurate. Great characters, great narration.
Same graphic gnarly book as Dead Man's walk with some new characters and many old ones. All you love and some you fear but it's a great book. Might not have been the best ending but what a fun ride. I must admit captain Skull and his wife are very amusing.
I was initially very disappointed with the narrator. After listening to Lonesome Dove, this reader left a lot to be desired. Most characters sound the same. Gus sounds wimpy and winy.
The story itself is OK. The last few chapters were pretty boring without much going on. I don't think I'll continue with the series.
I LOVED THIS BOOK AS I AM A LARRY MCMURTRY FAN FROM THE BEGINING. I GIVE THIS BOOK A FIVE STAR RATING AS IT TELLS OF THE BEST DAYS OF THE TEXAS RANGERS.
I enjoyed the listen, but found the story to ramble. Too many characters skipping from moment to moment. You lost track of what was happening with the main characters. The narration however was excellent. I wish the narrator had also performed Lonesome Dove. He was able to make each character unique and I was particularly happy not to have to listen to a screeching Gus.
This would have been good if Lee Horsley had narrated it like he did Lonesome Dove. This reader talks in a breathless whisper.
I'm a Larry McMurtry fan and was looking forward to listening to Comanche Moon. Almost immediately, I became annoyed with the narration. Now, about two hours into the book, I continue to be distracted by the over-emphasized and breathy narration. I hope I can make it through all three parts because the story is good.
I really enjoyed this book but the narrator was terrible. I found myself making fun of his vocalization he was all over the place, funny at first but became so annoying and distracting. I loved the narrator for Dead Man's Walk sure wish he could have narrated this one. Would have given 5 stars but for the narration.
