It actually began a little slowly with a focus on a love story which I typically find boring but then about an hour into the book it got very very interesting. I was spellbound and disappointed when it ended. It was a wonderful foray into the customs and spiritual world of early china.
People who like sappy, uneventful love stories.
I listened for 3 hours and nothing interesting happened in the story.
People were so upset that the previous narrator sounded like a teenager, so audible had the book redone. I think the problem is that the character, Anatasia, ACTS like a teenager. And a very very insipid one at that! I could not stand the two main characters of this book. The man, Grey, is a sickening sadist who is taking advantage of a moronic child of a girl. Anastasia is simply an idiot with very little self esteem or brains. They are both revolting. I could not finish this book. If I had to hear Ana say, " Hoooooly Crap" one more time.......!!!! If you have a need to like at least one of the characters, and you think sex should be about love, then don't buy this silly and perverted book. Also it was like every other porno piece I have ever seen. One sex scene leads to another. Only the sex scenes were not even fun to listen to because they were so sick. I do not understand why anyone likes this book. BTW, I thought both narrators were very good. I do not think it their fault that the book is so twisted morally.
I loved the story and I loved the narration. I could not stop listening!
These books paint a vivid portrait of the western plains in the early 1800's. Terrible things happen but the violence is not graphic, rather a bit removed. It is there, but not gory. The clash of civilizations between the europeans and the frontiersmen is very humorous. The BerryBender's are very eccentric and self centered. The frontiersmen are self centered in a different way, that of self survival. Larry McMurtry's writing is excellent as always. I am now on the 4th book, Folly and Glory, and cannot put it down. The narration is also excellent well done. I will be sad when I am done with the series.
Based on own autobiographies, along with his actions and associations, it becomes very clear why Obama chose Reverend Wright's black liberation theology for 20 years. He is not good for America! Please learn who this man really is before you vote for him!
Don't be discouraged by the reviews calling this book boring. If you love books about relationships between people, this is the book for you. The narration was excellent and the storyline engrossing. I really loved it and was sorry when it ended! I am going to download his other books too. This was one of the best I have listened to.
