The voice acting was phenomenal. Roy Dotrice is such an amazing character actor. Virtuosic.
I listened to each chapter at least twice before proceeding. There is so much going on.
He is a master narrator. obvious complete focus and respect for the material.
The best use of Science Fiction. Maximum enjoyment - humor and social commentary, the stupidity, cupidity and ridiculous of human endeavor should never not be exploited for a laugh.
I was very surprised at the amount of violence and moral darkness the characters encountered. I guess I was expecting a Hallmark drama but this was so much more satisfying. I had memories of the TV movie from when I was young, but I love westerns so gave this a try. After finishing the book, I went back to watch it and Duvall and Jones are just smackdown perfect, Duvall in particular. His Augustus is effing amazing. Horsely get's Augustus down pretty well too and brings a deep respect and full voice to the characters. This is a great story, a great Western, and well read.
Near perfection. but be careful, it takes you far away sometimes. Do not operate heavy machinery. or operate on people. while listening.
A perfectly pitched gravelly piano of tones. Like Tom Waits meets Santa Claus meets Richard Burton
I'm tiring a bit of the material. RR Martin is on a high level but sometimes too one note. Spread these books out for maximum enjoyment!
