Excellent narration and an interesting story.
Would you listen to Little Bighorn again? Why?
I would certainly listen to this book again, if only for the narration. Rex Anderson does and excellent job of distinguishing between the characters without too much dramatic over-emphasis. Having been an avid audiobook consumer for years, the narration reminds me a bit of Jonathan Davis. The story in engaging, if a little bit contrived, but that may be due to my lack of knowledge about the time period that the book is set during. Regardless, the strong narration carried it for me even when the story started to flag.
Would you recommend Little Bighorn to your friends? Why or why not?
I would certainly recommend this to my friends, especially those interested 19th century America. The story provides just enough factual detail to make to historical fiction feel grounded.
What about Rex Anderson’s performance did you like?
Rex Anderson demonstrated an strong ability to provide distinct characterizations, while also utilizing excellent pacing in his storytelling.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It may seem like a small part of the plot, but when the characters are traveling by train and one character is swindled out of their money in a poker game. It may have been fairly trivial, but it captured an aspect of the historical period in an enjoyable fashion.
Any additional comments?
While I will certainly seek out books by the narrator and this author in the future, I did notice that the quality of the audio was not up to typical audible standards. I got over this after the first few listens, but it was definitely something that struck me as strange. Even the high quality version sounded as if I was listening to a poorly mixed recording.
