    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    Story
    "Great "Manly" read. I loved it."

    Narration is excellent. Story is filled with action that makes you cheer for the good guy. Protagonist is a hybrid of "Lancelot"(fights for the innocent and defenseless), "Clint Eastwood"(in his trilogy of spaghetti westerns..kills the brutal with fast passionless efficiency). He is lawman, judge and jury against those who brutalized his wife and son. But even more, along his quest for sweet revenge and justice, he saves countless lives he encounters who are innocent and defenseless against the brutal. I had so many"feel good" moments throughout this book as he punished the evil and saved the good. I recommend highly.

    Story
    "Easy to know White hats from Black hats"

    Gene Engene brings a western to life, he is the best narrator of westerns.. This is an old fashion western, therefore, it is easy to tell good from evil. The story is a saga of a man's life. Matt Henry's wife and child are killed by an outlaw gang and he sit's off after them. He makes friends with lawmen along the way and crosses into Mexico after the outlaws. His life also takes a happy turn he goes on a cattle drive to Kansas from Texas and also marries the daughter of his first employer. Has nice discussion about long horn,short horn, and hereford cattle. I like Dusty Rhodes books as he has no foul language and no sex scenes. I enjoy a western as a break from other types of book, it makes a relaxing read.

    Story
    "Good story with more to it than the title."
    If you could sum up Man Hunter in three words, what would they be?

    Quite a saga.


    What about Gene Engene’s performance did you like?

    I like all of Mr Engene's reads from Casca to this title.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story with a strong character. At times a little corny but most of the story was great. The corny parts were balanced by the unvarnished brutality of the outlaw gangs and Indians. This was actually like three novels in one and a great value for one credit.

    Story
    "The narrator knocked it out of the park!"

    This western started out as standard fare, so much so that I almost stopped listening after the first hour...and yet, something still hooked me into the listen. The narrator, Gene Engene, makes a western come alive! Although this is not Louis L'Amour (not even close), I will still listen to another from Dusty Rhodes, but only if it is narrated by Gene Engene.

    Story
    "Nice predictable western for comfort food."
    What made the experience of listening to Man Hunter the most enjoyable?

    The reader was really on target with most all of his voices. Extremely believable.


    Would you recommend Man Hunter to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, its relaxing and a decent story.


    What about Gene Engene’s performance did you like?

    His voices, inflection, and comforting voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Against the odds, goodness over evil.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought it was good and would have liked some more depth. I'd pass on the whole bible references although I'm sure the character was a believer. I just think it was very good but superficial in some ways.

    "Good entertainment, better than what I was expecti"

    The story is easy to follow. It keeps you wondering what will happen next. I'm going to find another book by this author and reader. The reader is almost as important as the author. I've listened to a few books this is one of the good ones. I would have given it 5 stars but there's always room for improvement.
