Rish Outfield did an outstanding, highly professional job of reading. He was engaging and kept me on the edge of my seat. His talent helped me understand who was speaking at all times.
I had never heard of EC Tubb before listening to this audiobook, so I had no idea what to expect. Tubb envisioned Dumarest as living in a universe that is every bit as complex, developed and exotic as Herbert's universe of Dune. It is complete with intricate political systems, diverse worlds and peoples, elaborate trade and religious systems.
Dumarest, on the other hand, reminds me of a cowboy who stepped into this universe right out of a Louis L'Amour novel. He is tough, smart, loyal, and hardened. He has a way with women. He'll do the right thing or die trying. Rish does a fantastic interpretation of Dumarest's voice that really brings this character to life.
My favorite scene was the storm. Anyone who reads the book will know why. The story builds and builds until the storm, and then all hell breaks out. It's imaginative and haunting. Tubb does a great job of putting you in the mix. You can almost hear the voices in the wind...
