I love the original story and I love audio books, but I hate this one. They absolutely destroyed the character of Merrano. In the real story he wasn’t only hated for being half Mexican, he was also hated because his father had married the girl everyone had their eye on. Rather than portraying him as a cool half-Mexican (what main character of L’Amour’s wasn’t cool?) who spoke flawless English and planned ahead, they turned him into some cringing, knee-jerk-reacting Mexican who always sounds desperate and constantly uses Spanish words with a strong accent. Although there’s nothing wrong with that in and of itself, I wish they had stayed accurate to L’Amour’s idea. The interactions between Merrano and Candy were also incredibly inaccurate. They also destroyed the timeline and the actual plot. Some characters were even gotten rid of entirely. Please, do yourself a favor and get the Bowdrie audiobooks instead. They’re accurate to L’Amour’s version and the characters are well played.
Very easy read great audio for the first timer, I enjoyed how the families were transformed some from bad to ugly others from bad to humbled I also really enjoyed the authors knowledge and the Mexican work ethnic & wisdom !
