"Everything about Lonesome Dove feels true....these are real people, and they are still larger than life." (The New York Times Book Review)
You don't need to like westerns to enjoy this book. I read this series awhile ago and I loved the story as a book and enjoyed it just as much listening to it. This is a great story with lots of interesting and memorable characters. The only problem I had with the book is that the production was not as professional as other books. Sometimes the reader would sound like he was close to the mike and other times it sounded like he was far away.
This is my favorite McMurtry book, Very real and a book you can not put down.
There are no equals, Maybe King's Dream Catchers.
Gus of coarse. Gus makes this book a classic, his wisdom and humor are second to none.
Characters and humor.
Western dialect and way with words.
It is very, very long and I'm not even 1/3 through yet. Sometimes the volume drops a bit but that is the only problem I have had.
never read the print edition
near then end of the story as Call was looking over the sign Gus had made and saw it was fading away - just like their lives and their times.
color and humor
Lonesome Dove has been a favorite of mine in book and movie. I was looking forward to listening to this book. Lee Horsley's interpretation of Gus is especially annoying. If I wasn't a new member at audible.com I would return this book.
All of the "Lonesome Dove" Series if Horsley hasn't performed. The "Last Picture" show series is good to. Catch "Duane's Depressed".
A guy can't read this books without wishing he had the best of Gus and Call's qualities.
The phone application I put the book on is a winner.
What a great, great book. Larry McMurtry is simply an outstanding storyteller. Lee Horsely's performance as the reader on this audiobook should be the standard against which others are judged. This is 56 hours of pure listening joy and entertainment.
One of the best audiobooks I have listened to so far. Entertaining with amazing narrator. Each character comes to life with their own voice and personality. Even if you have never read a country western book (like me), you will not be disappointed. This is story telling at its best that anyone can appreciate.
