    I bought this audio book for my 7-year-old daughter to listen to on a long car trip. It turned out that my jaded 12-year-old son was enthralled as well. Now, that's good.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Richard Delman says: "A masterpiece. An epic western story."
    "Thorouhly enjoyed"
    Overall

    I had seen the TV shows but never realized how rich all the characters are. Nor had I realized how conflicted each one is about the choices they face. Virtually no one here is one-dimensional. There hardly seems to be a "typical cowboy" among them. Even the minor characters are presented with their unique strengths and weaknesses, a feature that helps the book transcend the period and place in which it is set.

    The book starts a bit slowly as McMurtry develops the central characters, but once they get on the trail, the pace picks up.

    Lee Horsley does a wonderful job narrating. Beautiful interpretations of many different characters.

    I never tired of the book and was sorry to hear it end. You know the characters so well that you want to learn more and more about their lives.

  • A Tale of Two Cities

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"; "It is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known"; so the novel begins and ends with some of Dicken's best-known words, and between the two is every Briton's view of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.

    K. Hicks says: "A Rediscovery of an Old Friend"
    "Gorgeous"
    Overall

    Wonderful narration. I haven't heard many audio books, but it's hard to imagine this one being done any better. Rich characters and scenes, precisely drawn by Dickens.
