    In Dead Man's Walk, Gus and Call are not yet 20, young men coming of age in the days when Texas was still an independent republic. Enlisting as Texas Rangers under a land pirate who wants to seize Santa Fe from the Mexicans, Gus and Call experience their first great adventure in the barren great plains landscape, in which arbitrary violence is the rule -- whether from nature, or from the Indians whose territory they must cross in order to reach New Mexico.<

    Richard says: "Not Lonesome Dove"
    "Barely worth it"
    Overall

    Lonesome Dove was one of the best audiobooks ever and Comanche Moon is not far behind. Unfortunately the best reason for listening to Dead Man's Walk is that it is the first book in this trilogy and sets the stage- even if done poorly. Unlike the second two books, there is little character development. Gus, the most intriguing character in Lonesome Dove, is a one-dimensional character interested only in sex and alcohol. Likewise for the Comanches and Apaches, portrayed as only interested in torture and killing- with drawn-out descriptions of both

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "A letdown"
    Overall

    After the DaVinci Code & Angels and Demons, what a letdown! It's not just that the plot is predictable, but the finale of the plot is a big letdown and, even worse, Brown seems more interested in preaching about far-fetched connections among symbols, mythology, the Masons and science than he is in developing a decent story. Not only is he repetitive, but he goes on and on and on even after the plot has ended
