Publisher's Summary

In Terms of Endearment, Larry McMurtry created some of his most memorable characters. He now reintroduces us to Aurora Greenway along with her family, friends and lovers, presenting a funny and bittersweet story about growing up and growing old.
Since her daughter Emma's death, Aurora has tried her best raising her three grandchildren -- but Tommy is in prison; Teddy has just been released from a mental hospital; and Melanie is pregnant and doesn't know who fathered her child. And through it all, Aurora's indomitable spirit and humor prevail.
A poignant and refreshing story of human resilience and the ties that bond family and friends, The Evening Star will take its place among Larry McMurtry's unforgettable classics, and is presented here in an unabridged reading to capture every word of this wonderful novel.

Awful

I really wanted to love this book, after being a huge fan of the movies and adoring the character Aurora Greenway.I first started off not liking the narrators voice it was highly annoying and I found that her voice while being Aurora was not what I expected nor did is sound how Aurora in the films are portrayed. Now sticking with the story... I found very few similarities that go along with the film , other than that it in no way held any truth to what the movies are like.That fact also really annoyed me. Either I read a novel first or watch the movie I expect it to follow storylines almost to a tee I get things need to be changed for the sake of entertainment value when it comes to screenplays.But this story however was just utter crap.I couldn't stand Aurora, Mellie,Rosie and most of all The General. IT WAS JUST AWFUL. I kept hoping for it to get better but I couldn't even finish it I think I made it to chapter 7? I just gave up it was so terrible.

NOT 'TERMS OF ENDEARMENT', BUT FUN

What made the experience of listening to The Evening Star the most enjoyable?

The wacky character of Aurora who will not disappoint.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoyed 'Terms of Endearment', you will delight hearing Aurora deal with her 3 grandchildren and they with her. The plot was weak, but the characters stole the show. The narrator was better than average.
