My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
This is a fairly easy listening, you know exactly what is going to happen, comfortable story. The story and ever single character is as cliché as they come, but that is not a bad thing. Most of the time I want a book with lots of twists and surprises and then at other times I want something I can rely on. I want the good guy to be triumphant and get the girl. If you have half a brain that is not a spoiler. Boone has such an imagination that he named his dog, Dog, his mule, Mule and his horse, Butternut.
WE'LL START WITH CHAPTER ONE
I have listened to thousands of audio books and don't ever remember a narrator starting a book with that phrase. Gene's rich baritone voice and pacing is perfect for this Mountain Man story.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
Gene Engene does a good job narrating this story. This is a short 6 hours story which is ideal to fit between reading longer books. The book follows the typical western theme of bad men, Indians, families moving west and a seasoned mountain man. Easy to listen to for a medium commute.
Very well performed and the story was great..Mr Engene is a very good narrator and brought the whole book to life.I enjoy Westerns and this is one of the best..Very enjoyable.and the length was just right.I really liked it.
