What else to say?

Great female narrator Whitton's excellent characterizations bring new levels of depth to the story.

Great story beginning of Jimmy Paz tryptic series. Gruber's blend of fact and fiction in surreal Miami setting is superlative.

So Disappointing! As it is abridged and the full book is available and the same narrator does the unabridged story.

I've asked at least 3 times over the past years... Maybe you should ask too!

All I get is a form letter saying thanks for whatever.

Come on Amazon get it together and get the whole series in unabridged form!

I'll buy all three tomorrow!

Great Ending. Nice metaphor.

Where does Cities of the Plain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Trilogies, I have a weakness for them.

This is good to the very end. Visceral is all I can say. CM knows how to use his characters.

Dialogue is great and the small real details kept me going without going on forever. Like a good vacation I want just a little more. Loved the metaphor which didn't sink in till the very end.

Wish Muller could read the second one too. He is fantastic as always.

All the Pretty Horses audiobook cover art

Awesome story. This guy writes like Hemingway.

What made the experience of listening to All the Pretty Horses the most enjoyable?

Reality is small details with out being endlessly descriptive just like all great art. Look at an Edgar Degas nose. Not much there but you get it. Frank Muller is masterful as always.

Any additional comments?

Audible needs to get The Crossing
