The experience of listening to this book has been just plain icky. I can't believe this is the same author who brought us Lonesome Dove and Terms of Endearment. The book was riddled with self-centered shallow losers with not one person to care about. I kept thinking that maybe it was the reading style of Ms. Critt that made it so unredeemable--she invested nothing of substance into the characters except a weird kind of strident cheeriness that was at complete odds with what was going on. I was going to force myself to finish it out of respect for Mr. McMurtry, but even the story is so linear and predictable that I won't.

Wow, McMurtry needs to stick with the frontier stories 'cause this Dove needs to be Lonesome. This thing is awful, from the gratuitous foul mouths of the women to CJ Critt's ever strident interpretation of the script I think I need to get some migraine medicine. I made it through one hour, maybe it gets better later, but I doubt it. Please give me my book credit back! I give it one star because there is no zero.
