Great Western Setting with an Interesting Plot

What did you like best about this story?

I really liked the main Character Moses. He is one of these guys that you love to hate, but really respect his morals and his faithfulness to the law.

Have you listened to any of Joseph Durika’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I would listen to another, he is very good.

Any additional comments?

The narration was very good, he really gets the western genre. The book is full of heartache in the old west. These people led hard lives and I think the author portrays that very well.

Narrator took it down a notch

I would actually rate this book 3½ stars, because the narration ruined it for me. Another good author who hasn't done his homework right, when it comes to audiobooks. Please, choose a good narrator - a proffesional one. Joseph Durika sounded like a cozy grandpa, which I enjoyed, but his female voices are terrible and his pacing inconsistent.

This story is captivating if I'd read the book instead of listening to it. It's very well-written and has a great plot. It has a high level of historical elements from the time of the civil war and I loved the characters. I'll give the author 4 stars, because of the quality of the story, that's only fair.
