This was an ok read.Jack Wallen Jr is a fine narrator.A young teen,James, and his mentally disabled friend live in a whorehouse with their moms.They befriend an Indian and all hell breaks lose.Crouching bear is cursed.When he gets angry he turns into a bear...and kills people.James,a son of Wyatt Earp,is the only one that is brave enough to face the supernatural evil.I was given this book free by the author,narrator or publisher.
Would you consider the audio edition of Curse of the Ancients to be better than the print version?
Although the Narrator brings the book to life it is the same story ,so what kind of question is that?
What about Jack Wallen, Jr.’s performance did you like?
Mr. Wallen has a magical voice that is a delight to hear. He is very good at narrating.He has a wealth of range and is a master at speaking well and clearly.There was never a question of who was speaking. He is very consistent with pitch and tone for each character.I have enjoyed many books that he has narrated. I rally like that he doesn't need soundtracks of ambient noise or music to make a story come to life. His voice is more than enough.
Any additional comments?
Curse of the Ancients : Son of Earp Series By Chuck Buda
Nov 5 2016
1870’s We follow the kindness act of two boys. James 17 the illegitimate child of Wyatt Earp,& Sarah Johnson a prostitute in the Iowa Territory Brothel Owned by Philler, and Carson 12 his slow-witted friend due to a childhood illness. Minnie was his mom Minnie who also worked at the Brothel.
The boys read about Wyatt’s escapades in the local news paper and would dream of being heroes and finding adventure. The boys would be sent outside for the night till the parties in the Brothel and bar died down. They were bar keeps during the day cleaning up both the bar and brothel waiting room. George the bouncer at the bar liked to spit his chew on the floor for the boys to clean up, George enjoyed making messes at the expenses of the boys.
The boys saved a lone Indian “Crouching bear” from the town drunk Wilson and a group of roughens. The boys fed Crouching Bear and in return, he taught the boys a sure fire way of hunting and they brought back the rabbit they caught to their mother’s. Then told the ladies about their adventures with Crouching bear and how he was cursed by his people for an unfortunate accident.
Crouching Bear had accidentally killed Laughing Crow, the middle son of the chief and a prankster, his last prank cost him his life during a raid on the white man. Due to this incident, Crouching bear was banished from the tribe and was cursed by the spirits and tribe.
Neither the boys or Crouching Bear could have known that their future were intertwined at such depths.
Mr Chuck Buda did a phenomenal job with this book, the story was riveting and the characters were well developed. This was the first of Mr. Buda’s work that I have read. Supernatural Westerns is not my usual read. But I enjoyed it and bought a few of his other books.
