    Story
    (1840)

    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.

    A. Wright says: "Inspired reading of a great book"
    "Best Western and maybe book I ever listened to"
    Overall

    36 hours of bliss. I could have listened for another 36. Great Characters and insight about everyone's different life philosophy. Hands down the best aucdio book I ever listened to. The great part was it was the longest too so I go to enjoy it for even longer.Only "The Gold Coast" by Nelson Demille and Dean Koontz's "From the Corner of His Eye" rival this book on audio.

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "Not the Greatest"
    Overall

    After reading all the review this books was WAY below what I expected. Yes, I was entertained as the narrator was very good but this story just went nowhere. To have this book on Audible.com's 100 Essencials is a joke. Keller dose nothing more than go from job to job with no real conclusion. I seriously advise you to pass this book up!!!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "My Goodness, What a Audiobook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    Overall

    There are audiobooks and there are GREAT audiobooks. This is a GREAT audiobook!!! After hundereds of audiobooks, only Nelson Demille's "The Gold Coast" is in the same class. I resisted listening to The Kite Runner for a long time due to the fact I thought a setting based in Afganastan just wasn't my cup of tea. I could not have been more wrong. The plight of Amir and Hassan is a story I'll not soon forget. The book is very well written and the pronuciation by the author made the book feel even more alive. It was an emotional rollacoaster I loved and as the book ended I cried. All I can keep saying is "For You a Thousand Times Over".
