Sin Killer

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Larry McMurtry

Narrated By: Alfred Molina

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: May 2002

Duration: 8 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

From Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry comes the first in a four-volume epic journey through the early American frontier, featuring the Berrybender family, English nobility adrift in the American West in the 1830s.

It is 1830, and the Berrybender family—rich, aristocratic, English, and hopelessly out of place—is on its way up the Missouri River to see the untamed West as it begins to open up. With irascible determination—and a great deal of outright chaos—the party experiences both the awesome majesty and brutal savagery of the unexplored land, from buffalo stampedes and natural disasters to Indian raids and encounters with frontiersmen and trappers, explorers, pioneers, and one part-time preacher known as 'the Sin Killer.' Packed with breathtaking adventure, charming romance, and a sense of humor stretching clear over the horizon, Sin Killer is a truly unique view of the West that could only come from the boundless skill and imagination of Larry McMurtry.

    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.

    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.

    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.
