I generally love history reads but this was painful. I use audible to pass the time while traveling and actually turned this off several times from frustration. Lots of detail with some of it repeated. An abridged version might be the way to go on this one. I liked the backgrounds of Travis, Houston, Austin, etc. You'll need to be a real Texas history buff to enjoy this one!
Fear is the mind Killer, so Face Your Fear
The detail. Where and how the culture of Texas was formed. There was so much I did not know and so much helped me make a lot of sense of why Texas culture is like it is today.
Sam Houston. The book made him real. Extremely complex.
He read very well and with passion for a book compromising so much detail.
The battle between Santa Anna and the Texans. I had no idea we were so lucky. Extreme luck.
This will teach Texans a lot about their history and to appreciate Tejanos a lot more.
Lone Star Rising is an entertaining, well-written, and honest treatment of Texas history. Readers with an appreciation for history and adventure will enjoy it.
I actually thought that this one was pretty good. Yes there was some minor repetition, but only when necessary. This was an easy listen and was interesting.
I have over 500 books in my library
YES This is one of my earlier audio books I had purchased.Being a Texan I felt it was informative interesting and impressive
Good info about Houston, but Crockett is always a guy’s favorite
A narrator often makes or breaks the book and Jonathan Hogan is probably my favorite =]
