This is the first time I wished I had purchased an abridged audio book. I enjoy sarcasm but the same reference 3 times a minute is a bit much. I can remember what happened a few pages ago and can recall a character's state of mind in the last scene or I would watch TV instead of reading / listening to a book. A story that was just good enough to finish [I had no other audio books to on a long car trip], but a presentation weak enough that I won't be listening to the next DeMille novel. The narration was wonderful.
Harold Frye was an ordinary man who lived an ordinary life. The book is far from ordinary.
The character development inside what certainly is a historically interesting tale was painfully shallow. While this story did portray the plight of the human situation, it did so with characters largely devoid of the human spirit. This is as certain a disservice to the slaves, women, amd masters of the era as iit is to the reader today.
Disappointed I finished a book that I could tell early on was not worth the
The book reveals the complexity of the Lincoln assisination, an important point in US history I should have known more about.
Any good story teller rather than a writer or broadcaster. My wife gave up on the book because of the narration.
It was sad to reach the end of this audiobook. I will miss the Hat Creek gang, Lonesome Dove, and the country they explored. The narration was the finest of all audio books I have heard. Even with my hearing aids removed, I could distinguish every word and recognize every character. Too bad the book was not 60 hours instead of 30. What a pleasure.
