In addition to his 29 books, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry is credited on dozens of screenplays—including the Academy Award-winning Brokeback Mountain. Horseman, Pass By is a post-World War II classic first published in 1961 and later made into a feature film. Cattleman Homer Bannon is a walking advertisement for traditional, old-frontier morals—in contrast to his stepson, Hud. Homer’s grandson Lonnie is torn between emotions for his father and grandfather as he struggles to define his own identity.
Recording drops out on Ch. 11
As stated above the audio on chapter 11 drops to a level where nothing clear may be discerned for nearly the entirety of the chapter. As for the book itself this is a very somber McMurtry novel, though well wrote just as you’d expect, it is not the typified McMurtry page turner that you’d want to get through in a fever of reading/listening. My final gripe is the narrator.. he does a fair to middling job but there is no semblance of a Texas drawl or cowboy twang you’d might expect in a novel such as this.
