I was really excited to get started on this particular book, since I am such a big fan of Sparks. Unfortunately, having a female voice to cover Luke's voice and a man covering Ruth's, I was so disappointed. Please know, I am not commenting on the narrator, but the choice of voices. Such a shame.
Now, I don't have a vision of a handsome, bullriding cowboy, but rather a 12 year old boy trying to fake an adult voice. Just awful. Thanks Mr Sparks for another great story. Just love your work.
I go through about 2 - 3 audio books per month, and this ranks at the top
There are so many memorable moments. The sections I enjoyed the most was hearing from Ira about his life with his wife.
Ron McLarty was EXCELLENT. It is the first time I have heard him. LaVoy was very good as well. Narration can make or break an audio book. They were very very good.
Not one of Sparks' better novels. The story is tired and overdone. The ending was predictable. There was a lack of a well developed conflict. I did not care for the voice of Ira. I dreaded his accounts of the story because the voice was difficult to listen to.
