    What did you love best about The Odyssey?

    It's all good. It is an excellent translation voiced by a superb reader. The sound quality was patchy in places but that may have been the download.

    All the Pretty Horses:

    The first volume of the Border Trilogy tells of young John Grady Cole, the last of a long line of Texas ranchers. Across the border Mexico beckons - beautiful and desolate, rugged and cruelly civilized. The Crossing: In the late 1930's, 16-year-old Billy Parham captures a she-wolf that has been marauding his family's ranch. But instead of killing it, he decides to take it back to the mountains of Mexico. Cities of the Plain: It is 1952 and John Grady Cole and Billy Parham are working as ranch hands in New Mexico, not far from the proving grounds of Alamogordo and the cities of El Paso and Juarez.

    crowdeeds says: "Speak Spanish? Brad Pitt does not."
    "Brad read Cormac"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend it unreservedly.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have had someone read all three books in their entirety.


    What three words best describe Brad Pitt’s voice?

    Faux western and fast.


    Could you see Cormac McCarthy Value Collection being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Part of it has been filmed with Matt Damon as lead.
