Probably not what you're expecting from the grand master of the Western. A marvelous adventure set in 12th centure Europe, hitting all the classic bases of motive, badassery, wit, humor, and Louis's rich, inimitable style.
Lots of stealth philosophy, and quotable quotes, too.
Narrator was quite good, though he got off to a slow start. He just isn't quite how I hear Mathurin in my head when I'm reading. It is also a shame that the appendix wasn't included- there is a wealth of real information there that should be of interest to any thinking person.
An epic adventure through 12th century Europe. This is my third time through the book.
The only negative thing I have to say about this is, as a car listener, the narration would become too quiet at parts and difficult to hear. If you have a quieter car you shouldn't have any problems.
But overall it's great.
Obviously this is not classic Louis l'Amour but a wonderfully told incredibly involved story with rich characters and scenery. I couldn't stop listening to it and it was a joy.
