This is my first western, in a long time, and my first Audible experience ever. I read "The Reckoning" in paperback first and loved it. I felt like I really got to know the characters, and the story held my interest all the way through. Listening to it on audible was a completely different experience. Tom seeker did a great job making the book come alive for me. I'm reading The Renewal" now; it's great to see these characters, along with some interesting new ones, at different stages in their lives and with different problems. I'd recommend "The Reckoning" on Audible to anyone looking for a fun read.
Where does The Reckoning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Ranks near the top of my Audible experiences.This dramatic touching story carries you along through gunfights and romance, with cowboys and Indians that are far deeper than their stereotypes. Sure, the Bad Guys are bad, but all the characters are nuanced and memorable. In post-civil war Kansas and Colorado, that's not easy. Plus the narrator does a great job. His voices enhance the setting and enrich the characters.
What other book might you compare The Reckoning to and why?
I read widely across many genres. Cormac McCarthy's ALL THE PRETTY HORSES is one of my favorite books of all time. What I loved about THE RECKONING is that it, too, is an intimate story about interesting, realistic people struggling to survive and do right by their family and themselves.
Which scene was your favorite?
I liked when he confronted the "evil ranch owner" and his ranch hands. I don't want to give the plot away so I'll leave it at that.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Can a wounded Civil War soldier revenge the murder of his parents without sacrificing his sister's and his own life?
Any additional comments?
This writer obviously knows his stuff about the time and places.I partly read the ebook and partly listened to the Audible recording. Both were excellent, entertaining experiences. Definitely enjoyable, highly recommended.
