This is an advanced reader copy of the book provided by audiobook boom. The entire story was based on the life of a real person. The narrator was very good and added to the story. I hated that the family was torn apart because people chose different sides in the Civil War but I also do not like parents who abuse their children because of their own failings. The story was well written and gave some insights into why he was an outlaw.

Not an enjoyable listen

What would have made The Debonair Bandit better?

More events proving that he was actually a bandit rather than some sissy cowboy that was a good shot.

Would you ever listen to anything by B. W. Hedgepeth again?

Not likely.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Sartor’s performances?

Yes, perhaps with a more suitable book. Non-fiction maybe

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

I was provided this book by the author or narrator for review. The intonation used by the narrator did not suit a fictional "western" type book. The story itself goes way too fast (skips years) and then way too slow with boredom ensuing. Not good for fans of fictional westerns.
