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....
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.
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 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.
I really loved how the previous books were all interwoven so well, following the time between the beginning and Lonesome Dove. Mcmurtry is a master of character and setting descriptions. Now I'm going to miss Gus and Woodrow. The series is definitely worth the listen.
This is the second book of his I have read. It's on to Lonesome Dove now. If they continue to be as good, I will read all of his books. I highly recommend it!
Good story,love the characters
Terrible choice for a narrator. Especially after Dead Man's Walk.
A return to Gus and Woodrow
Gus McCrae, he's a talker
The narrator was a poor choice for this book. I personally don' like Muller's narration. Would have been MUCH better if Will Patton had done all 4 books.Also the word Vexed or vexing was used almost every 10 pages. It kind of takes you out of the story when an author uses a word like this so often or maybe it was just the annoying way Frank Muller says it.
