I liked this story. Especialy the story line about the Daughter and the Sin Killer. I cant wait to read the second book. It does leave you hanging in the end but worth the time.
kept me interested the whole time I was listening to it.
book was good and narrator firstrate. however, expected more insight how sin killer earned moniker. go ahead and get it!
THIS IS THE FIRST AUDIO I LISTENED TO BY McMURTRY. I ENJOYED IT AND LEARNED "A BIT OF HISTORY" ABOUT THE FRONTIER OF 1832. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT EPISODE.
Takes a while to get characters straight, at first I didn't think I would like it. Very entertaining if you can get into the quirkiness of the people. I ended up with this as one of my favorites. This is first of four in the series, enjoyed every one of them.
I typically love Larry McMurtry's work - although I haven't read any in some time, nor have I read any of the other Berrybender adventures. The book and story line were OK, but it got a little to long and detailed for me in parts.
not exactly what i was expecting from Larry McMurtry, so it took a little while to get into it. at first -- as it begins with a seemingly endless cast of characters -- my reaction was WHAT was i THINKING, this is impossible! but once the story got moving, i got drawn in. it's VERY funny, in a way unlike McMurtry's other writing. imagine "Centennial" done by Monty Python, and you'll have some idea. i will always love Larry McMurtry for "Lonesome Dove," and immensely enjoy much of his other writing -- this one just plain tickles me. can't wait to hear more!
Between the fascinating story and character development and OUTSTANDING READER, this (and those that follow) are what audiobooks are all about - and should be. The reader understands this is acting, not just reading words on paper and holds the listener tightly. The only dissapointment is that the story ends (sort of).
The Berrybenders vary between engaging and almost despicable but the mix makes the story along with the cast of characters met along the way.
This is the beginning of a "mini-series" following a family on adventures in early america. Typical of McMurtry's non-ending, but fortunately, there's another episode to follow.
