The plot and characters are unusual (including a female stalker) that somehow all show varying levels of humanity, always with humor. The story is extremely well crafted, and the Australian accent of the narrator (and setting of the novel) adds to the charm.
The protagonist - the author does a great job of layering her emotional portrait.
I didn't laugh or cry, but I cared about the characters.
I've already recommended this book to several friends as a fun, captivating read.
A non-traditional plot with a complicated family that Tyler somehow made interesting and diverse.
Brown gets nuances in her acting and narration - she puts the irony where it belongs; stands back when she should.
I don't know, but this wouldn't be the title.
Tyler is a master and this book so fresh and unusual - loved it.
McMurtry's masterpiece with extraordinary narration by Lee Horsley topped my list of most enjoyable downloads for the past THREE YEARS! Characters, story, heart and perfection in the narration made the listening of this (long) book something I HATED to end. Not ordinarily a 'western' fan, be reassured, this is a story of humanity, don't avoid it because of the genre.
McMurtry does such an extraordinary job of creating characters - you see, understand, empathize and care about them all.
I immediately looked up Mr. Horsley's other performances - unfortunately limited - he was made to narrate this book.
As an ardent reader who listens to downloaded books when I walk, drive, cook - I can't stress what an blissful pleasure it was to enter the world of Lonesome Dove. I am now a McMurtry groupie of the first order, and Mr. Horsley has my undying appreciation for his craft also.
