I am a huge Larry McMurtry fan. Although ToE is not one of my favorites of his, I wouldn't change a thing about it.
I love how McMurtry takes the time to integrate his environments and stories -- in this case, Houston in the 70s.
Ms. Rosenblatt's unintentionally-comical performance almost kills this otherwise good book. I often felt compelled to turn to my printed copy to see whether she was accurately portraying the book's dialog. Invariably, I found that Ms. Rosenblatt had chosen to read the dialog of many of the characters in an absurd "southern" accent that was distracting at best. Would have preferred it if she'd just stuck with her normal (and quite nice) voice.
Absolutely, but I wish someone else would record it for future listeners to enjoy.
