It's a tie between Miss Brooks and Mr. Boyton. Both characters are well acted and Eve Arden seems to have a natural fit into her character.
I listen to these episodes at night or put them on in the background when I am working.
They just don't make quality entertainment like this anymore.
The shows are fun to listen to. Never childish or offensive as so many shows these days seem to be.
A natural fit into their roles.
No - they are just fun to listen to..
Entertainment today should look back to these shows and learn what quality is all about. Entertainment without offensive language and stupid storylines.
Detailed wonderful story.
It touches all of your emotions. There is several stories within one that all eventually intertwine with each other.
He did a fantastic job narrating this book. He brought life to all of the characters. Larry McMurtry paints the setting and the characters in his words, while Lee Horsley breathes life into it. After a short time you can actually "see" everything in your mind and know which character was speaking even without the names of the characters being identified.
Between the description and writing by Larry McMurtry and the various voices of each of the characters I found myself feeling loss and sadness when one of my favourite characters passed on in the story. I was disappointed that the character died, but I give credit to the narrator and author for doing such a great job that it would invoke such feelings.
A wonderful story! I will have to watch the movie now.
Anyone that is incapable of carrying a conversation without swearing ten times in a five word sentence.
Curb the language.
The true stand-ups and humorous speakers are funny without vulgarity. The ones that cannot get through a performance without swearing every third or fourth word are amateurs. This guy has no class and his language serves only to distract from the performance. I am glad I never saw this guy live. After listening to how he interacts with his audience I would have left.
