"The Virginian's pistol came out, and his hand lay on the table, holding it unaimed. With a voice as gentle as ever, a voice that sounded almost like a caress, drawling a very little more than usual so that there was almost a space between each word he issued orders to the man Trampas: "When you call me that, smile!" And he looked at Trampas across the table. Yes, the voice was gentle. But in my ears it seemed as if somewhere the bell of death was ringing; and silence, like a stroke, fell on the large room."

One of the best books I have ever listend to.
It's a story that you don't want to end.
I would compare to Lonesome Dove and not becasue they are both Westerns.
The Virginian, because, he was true to the character
Its hard for me to fall in love with a character, but I fell head over hills with the Man from Virginina. It made me laugh and cry and never want the story to end.
This book was written over a hundred years ago, but you cant tell, it is well written and well read.
