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.

    "Just OK"

    I was initially very disappointed with the narrator. After listening to Lonesome Dove, this reader left a lot to be desired. Most characters sound the same. Gus sounds wimpy and winy.

    The story itself is OK. The last few chapters were pretty boring without much going on. I don't think I'll continue with the series.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Great story!"

    I loved the story but can't stand Frank Muller's voice. His performance made it nearly impossible to enjoy the wonderful work of Larry McMurtry.

    "Superb"

    A wonderful story wonderfully executed. Pacing is spot on. A great look at Texas before and after the Civil War years.

    "Worst narration ever."

    This is just awful, weird narration and constantly distracting from the story. Please consider re-recording this great book with a competent narrator. Very disappointed.
