Publisher's Summary

Comanche Moon completes Larry McMurtry's epic cycle of novels of the American West that began with the Pulitzer-Prize-winning masterpiece, Lonesome Dove.

We join Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow F. Call as they are just beginning to deal with the perplexing tensions of adult life -- Gus, and his great love, Clara Forsythe, Call and Maggie Tilton, the young whore who loves him -- when they enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of Buffalo Hump, the great Comanche war chief; Kicking Wolf, the celebrated Comanche horse thief; and a deadly Mexican bandit king with a penchant for torture.

Comanche Moon joins the 20-year time line between Dead Man's Walk and Lonesome Dove, as we follow Gus, Call and their comrades-in-arms -- Deets, Jake Spoon, and Pea Eye Parker -- in their bitter struggle to protect an advancing Western frontier against the defiant Comanches, determined to defend their territory and way of life.

At once realistic and yet vividly imagined, Comanche Moon is a giant of an audiobook and the keystone to a mighty achievement of storytelling. An epic adventure full of heroism, tragedy, cruelty, courage, honor and betrayal, Comanche Moon is the culmination of Larry McMurtry's peerless vision of the American West.

    "cool"

    I got this book to hear Frank Muller and knew nothing about Lonesome dove. My advice would be to start at "Dead Man's Walk", the prequel to this book. But this book did stand on it's own feet.

    "Poor narrator"

    The book is a good follow up to Lonesome Dove...prequel....but the narrator was a big disappointment. Very poor western accent and hard to distinguish between characters.

    "Poor narrator"

    I have listened to two other books in the series and loved them! I just started listening to this one and am enjoying the book, but the narrator is terrible. Will Patton and Lee Horsley were MUCH better. If I hadn't listened to the other books and loved the characters so much I probably wouldn't have continued to listen to this one.

    "McMurtry and Muller!"

    I will always remember watching the premiere of the Lonesome Dove mini-series with my Dad, during my teenage years. Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones were mesmerizing. I never got around to the books until recently. Finished the series with this one. Frank Muller was a narrating genius. Larry McMurtry is a literary genius. If I had to choose a favorite of the series this would be it!

    "The Old West Comes Alive"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. It was, for me, an easier listen than Lonesome Dove. The characters came alive with the narration of Frank Muller. He was one of the best. Narration by Frank Muller is half the reason that I purchased this book. All of the Larry McMurtry westerns that I have listened to have been great. Frank's reading just made it better.

    "good awful voice"

    The way the narrator talks is so grating that my ears actually feel relieved listening to the next book in the series. His voice is harsh, grating, and reminded me of putrified fleash. The story is so phenomenal that I endured it. You've been warned.

    "Weak when compared to the rest"

    After reading and LOVING Lonesome Dove & Dead Man's Walk, Comanche Moon ended up being a let down in my opinion. Yes at times, this book was as brilliant as the other two I have read. However, I found myself annoyed at the way it would skip over several years at a time from one chapter to another.

    I also found that there wasn't one major plot line, rather there were several smaller events they worked through. In the other two books you had one major goal, but then several smaller side plots going to add depth to the novel.

    Even though, this was a bit of a let down, I am looking forward to finishing the saga with Streets of Laredo.
