The Virginian | [Owen Wister]

The Virginian

"The Virginian's pistol came out, and his hand lay on the table, holding it unaimed. With a voice as gentle as ever, a voice that sounded almost like a caress, drawling a very little more than usual so that there was almost a space between each word he issued orders to the man Trampas: "When you call me that, smile!" And he looked at Trampas across the table. Yes, the voice was gentle. But in my ears it seemed as if somewhere the bell of death was ringing; and silence, like a stroke, fell on the large room."

    Story
    "One of the best books I have ever listend to."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's a story that you don't want to end.


    What other book might you compare The Virginian to and why?

    I would compare to Lonesome Dove and not becasue they are both Westerns.


    Which character – as performed by Gene Engene – was your favorite?

    The Virginian, because, he was true to the character


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Its hard for me to fall in love with a character, but I fell head over hills with the Man from Virginina. It made me laugh and cry and never want the story to end.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was written over a hundred years ago, but you cant tell, it is well written and well read.

    "Reading vs Listening"

    I don't know if I would have liked this so much if I was READING it. The narrator Gene Engene is a master at storytelling, voices, accents, southern drawls, drunkin drawls,and always the right place for pauses and emphasis.
    I know if Mr. Engene is telling it it is going to be good. Why, he is even the best at singing cowboy diddies and high pitched preachings of the old gospels!

    I can't praise Mr. Engene enough! Thank you.

    "Worst Book Ever"

    There is never any action the author jumps around everywhere and even at the half way point you cant tell anything about who or what is going on. I'm a big fan of Gene Engene it's too bad his name is attached to such a lowsey book. What a waste of money!
