Great book, but Patton should have read it himself. The woman narrators voice is insufferable, nasal and irritating. The other guy sounded like he was about to cry the whole time. Not a good choice. The narrators make or break a book. Not worth the money. Ill wait for the movie. I couldn't listen to this and I'm a huge will Patton fan.
Great book ! Informative fiction regarding ranchers, oilmen way back when. Very good info on Comanche Indians way back when.
Great book, but completely different from the TV series.
I absolutely loved all the narrators of this book. They did a fabulous job. What an account of the creation of Texas! Having lived in Houston for a long time in the oil and gas industry, I can’t help but be enthralled by these tails and wonder of some of their truths. I can feel the spirit of these types of characters in Texans today, the good and the bad. I’m probably going to listen to this again right away as I know there were things I may have missed. And, having not lived in Texas for a couple years, these characters make me somewhat homesick in a melancholy way. I’m sad this book is over and want to know more.
I’m also going to look from more books from the narrator of Peter McCullough. I really enjoyed all the narrators, but his especially.
I drive a lot and enjoy listening to books to stay awake. I really liked The Son and found myself listening to it before bed and while I was putting my makeup on in the morning.
At first I did not know why the book was called "The Son". I had to go back to the beginning to hear Eli say, " I know why you did it, son." One view of the book is about having found deep true love. It is a marvelous book and I will probably read it again.
