This by far, is my favorite. It's not only true, but an exciting story. Robin Weigert is brilliant. The only actress who could have narrated this book, Robin is very, very brilliant. Robin is incredibly convincing with each character and each characters voices. I wish to see this in a movie but only if Robin plays Charlie Parkhurst.
It was based on a true story. To her ownself she was true. From not allowing the color of a man's skin or his station enter her decision to fall for the man she loved.
Robin does each voice brilliantly. Not just good but committed to a level that one usually doesn't get to experience. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. The ONLY actress who could have performed these characters so well. Robin hits a level of excellence very much appreciated by this listener.
Several. When Tonia acts on her impulse to even the score for Charlie. When Charlie makes her decision to just, change after being kicked by the horse. When Charlie's old friend returns. Also, when Sugar Foot's identity was revealed to her.
I appreciated the obituaries at the end. The acknowledgement for this brave woman who was unofficially "the Whip" of the West. Also to know that she was probably the first woman to vote in the United States. I would like to see this and Charlie Parkhurst honored at the Western Museum in Los Angeles. The have honored the buffalo girls but this story is unique and important.
That is true of any book for me. It's all in the narration. If the voice doesn't grab me, or convince me, I won't purchase it.
When he saves the woman who had been hunting him.
He did them all so well, but The Informant himself is what sold me to purchase the book.
In the men's room with the honest wise guy. He showed his metal. He was a man of honor.
I was testing out books, looking for something like Michael Connelly's books. I have read and listened to all of Michael Connelly's works, two and three times. It's was the Narration of, The Informant, that sold it for me. I listened to this book first and then searched for others by Thomas Perry. I did purchase Butcher's Boy not knowing Michael Connelly was going to give a recommend to this author and such a great one at that. I liked the Butcher's Boy but I like this one, The Informant, much better.
There are books I thought looked interesting but I didn't purchase because I didn't like the narration. The voice was wrong. The narrator wasn't matched well to the material or wasn't as good as I was hoping to hear.
Due to audible I am enjoying the written word so much more. I would read a book maybe every other month and now I am going through books like a scholar. I listen to each book several times. This is perfect for me.
More Thomas Perry, more Michael Kramer please.
