This is a very long book, but is worth the time. It is technically excellent and doesn't leave a loose end or unanswered question.
I can't think of another book I have listened to that is as tight and sustains interest like this one over such a long reading time.
I love this narrator, and he is actually why I checked this out to begin with. He has an astounding command of voices and dialects. The best part of his performance is that one forgets that he is performing. He brings the characters to life so well.
I found myself being educated in many of the ways of the characters daily lives.
Fantastic and wonderful book that increased my awareness of how hard life was for so many long ago.
OMG, Matthew, what the heck were you thinking? You just know a chararcter with a name like Tyranthus Slaughter is not going to be a cream puff. This story is brutal, terrifying , and redeeming all in one. When the usually self assured, yet humble Matthew is so full of himself in the beginning, you know he will be taken down a few notches pretty soon. I really enjoy the way Mc Cammon portrays the Native Americans, twice now they have pulled Matthew's foolish butt out of the fire. This story is like the energizer bunny... just keeps going and going, sometimes it's so repulsive that you would like to turn it off, but you just can't- you need to know what happens! Very satisfying- as the first 2 books were. PS- Eduardo Bellerini is my favorite narrator, too
The humor, irony, and sarcasm throughout the book.
It did, but most of the time there seemed to be little real danger until near the end.
Many parts made me laugh.
Very enjoyable book.
It all made sense in the end- every word, every thought had a purpose.
The face -off in the window.
I haven't, but that voice of his was perfect for the atmosphere of this book.
No, it moves along at a slower pace, but it's weaving its tapestry carefully.
Just keep listening; it's worth it.
Creepy little story
The narrator; he's sooo naive.
The narrator; he needs a talking to about putting kids to bed.
I saw it coming, but it was good anyway. Still kinda gives me the chills.
Excellent story, characters, and narration! Very enjoyable book. Keeps you guessing and laughing; a great time.
It's kind of a depressing , wierd story, so I would be very careful who I recommending it. better not be too squeamish.
I thought about the "Dragon Tattoo" books, because of the similsr sounding words, dark subject matter, etc, but it is totally different.
The narrator was effective because I was unaware of him, the story was the star.
Some people never forgive, or forget.
I liked the book very much.
I really liked this story. The middle dragged on a bit, but it turned out to be very necessary. It's well written and well narrated. It's stars off quickly and keeps you guessing, but best of all it all get wrapped up in the end without those pesky loose ends. Loved it.
