What did you love best about Off the Mangrove Coast?
The wide variety of the stories: Boxing, All-Out Jungle Adventure, Treasure Hunting, Crime, Revenge. L'Amour is the greatest adventure writer of all-time. Utterly readable, heroes you can root for but not unbelievable shining knights; regular joes who rise to the occasion and stand up to corruption and evil.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Off the Mangrove Coast?
Can't just pick one. Here's my tie: L'Amour writes the best fight scenes I've ever read; regardless of whether the fight scenes are in the ring or a back alley, they ring true of a man who's not just thrown a punch but a man who's taken a few as well. Plus, Stephen Lang's reading of The Diamond Of Jeru is far, far superior to the dramatized full cast version (which is still excellent as well).
Have you listened to any of Stephen Lang’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No but he's one of my favorite actors and has been for over thirty years. He can portray heroes, heels, psychopaths, every gamut of characterization. I couldn't help but imagine him as the heroes of the stories as well. He should definitely narrate more novels especially L'Amour's works (Fair Blows The Wind,The Haunted Mesa, hint- hint).
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Please make available complete, unabridged Audible versions of Louis L'Amour's Short Story collections, especially the Adventure and Crime volumes. Not just selected stories from within but all the tales from cover-to-cover. You guys are fantastic. Stephen Lang did a absolute fantastic job! Thank you.
Adventure in many genres. Well written collection of stories. From western cowboys, to adventure aboard ship, to fighting men, Louis L'Amour makes them all come alive.
