What did you love best about Mexico?

I loved the flow. A whole lot of action and adventure.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tex all the way! A true top notch vigilante who always sees his plans through.

Which character – as performed by William "Bill" Word – was your favorite?

The General. Bills voice captured the strength and experience as well as humor that I came to admire in this character.

Who was the most memorable character of Mexico and why?

For me the women vigilantes were awesome. They stole the show with there cunning and great wit.

Any additional comments?

I've listened to dozens of audio books and Bills narration is some of the finest I've ever heard. His cadence has a rhythm that is rock solid. He takes the work out of listening. Additionally, his tone is perfect the genre Larry Hill Brilliantly lays out in both of the Tex Waco novels.

What made the experience of listening to Oil Field, Texas the most enjoyable?

The voice work by Bill Word perfectly fit Larry Hills story. Tense shootouts were suspenseful to the max. The many character voices were easily remembered by Bills excellent accents.

What did you like best about this story?

The times when plans were stategic and dynamic. Plenty of brain food! Speaking of food, I liked the realism of the characters frequently eating and preparing for the awesome shootouts, with rockets!

Which character – as performed by William "Bill" Word – was your favorite?

Tex. a real sharp thinker and a cool patient man as well. He always took care of his men.

Who was the most memorable character of Oil Field, Texas and why?

Same. Some of the other characters were gruff at the appropriate times. Tex, however really stayed true to his character both from and audio and authored standpoint.

Any additional comments?

Great fun listening to this audio book. I look foward to many more.
