Never read the print and would never but in my car? Wow pointed me to tons of further in depth reading AND let me know what I would find in each title.
Already have. It's a great conversation starter
none, no characters. Just the facts and well done.
Remember all that Psych stuff you sort of remember? Well zip thru 50 Psychology Classics and it All comes back with some you didn't know as added spice.
Humphrey Bower is a great reader. The story takes awhile but worth it. Really worth it. I "felt" what London was like. Then I felt the reality of what it meant to be a Criminal worthy of transportation. Can't wait for book 2.
The learned the humanity of people I initially thought of as horrible and worthless.
Mary's victory in getting the 'treasure'.
Bloody Mary - she's got chutzpah!
not likely it's a one time listen but enjoyable for all that
Grayson - the hero's likable for sure
you didn't notice the reader. he let you here the story not him
yes, it's light but you want to find out "what's next"
the reality of the Civil War is laid bare. will you dare to see?
The Goat Lady - serene, earthy, practical and self sufficient.
Charles Frazier is the ONLY author reading his own writing that I have ever enjoyed. His languidly precise voice is perfect.
I have had trouble turning it off. I listen repeatedly. and AVIDLY
I walked the Dead Man's Walk with Call and Gus. Will Patton brings a very good tale to the level of Majesty. I've listened 4 times and get a little more each time. You'll love ALL of the characters - the heroes and the villains. The landscape they trudge through is wide open and wild. Loved it. Still love it. It's a listen again and again. Makes the Lonesome Dove TV series into a poor cousin by comparison.
When the Mexican Commander hands over his gun to Call.... real drama.
I will listen to Will Patton read the phone book. His sensitivity with accents, and nuance are remarkable. I like him as an actor but LOVE him as a Narrator.
I'd take Gus out for dinner and just listen. Mostly because he'd do all the talking and you would never get a chance to interrupt. But I'd take Call fishing - and count the dozen words he spoke as a library.
The story of real people at odds with the distant bureaucracy. AND the Reader's accents and characterizations bring it alive.
The Biffer - He will do as he wants and stuff the authorities.
All the vast array of islanders and all their lovely accents.
Absolutely. I heard it many years ago on cassette and have been unable to find it until now. An old friend has come home.
If you want to smile. Listen casually. If you want a belly laugh listen with intent. You can't go wrong either way.
