I will always remember watching the premiere of the Lonesome Dove mini-series with my Dad, during my teenage years. Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones were mesmerizing. I never got around to the books until recently. Finished the series with this one. Frank Muller was a narrating genius. Larry McMurtry is a literary genius. If I had to choose a favorite of the series this would be it!
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 got this book to hear Frank Muller and knew nothing about Lonesome dove. My advice would be to start at "Dead Man's Walk", the prequel to this book. But this book did stand on it's own feet.
Before Lonesome Dove was Comanche Moon
not much to say if you like westerns Then this is a really good one....
The book is a good follow up to Lonesome Dove...prequel....but the narrator was a big disappointment. Very poor western accent and hard to distinguish between characters.
I have listened to two other books in the series and loved them! I just started listening to this one and am enjoying the book, but the narrator is terrible. Will Patton and Lee Horsley were MUCH better. If I hadn't listened to the other books and loved the characters so much I probably wouldn't have continued to listen to this one.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. It was, for me, an easier listen than Lonesome Dove. The characters came alive with the narration of Frank Muller. He was one of the best. Narration by Frank Muller is half the reason that I purchased this book. All of the Larry McMurtry westerns that I have listened to have been great. Frank's reading just made it better.
This is just awful, weird narration and constantly distracting from the story. Please consider re-recording this great book with a competent narrator. Very disappointed.
melodramatic narrator. preferred the narrator for Lonesome Dove.
Really enjoyed the story from start to finish.
