Reviews

excellent read & a hokey but cute story


(4 stars)

the reader did a fantastic job! if it wasnt for the reader i may have given up on this book. this is a kind of hokey "aww shocks ma'am" type story. a boring train robbery but the book gets kind of interesting in the middle to end area. a love story as well. clean for adults or children.

Pleasant story wonderfully read


(4.5 stars)

This is a light hearted tale of intrigue and love on a train journey in the west. The rascals aren't really bad, our hero is really good, and you'll know who dunnit within minutes. The reader was perfect. I knocked off half a star only for some of the expressions, common when the book was written, which are offensive today.

GREAT ROMP


(5 stars)

The author certainly makes the reader wait. A complicated story with lots of good guys and plenty of bad guys. The cavalry actually saves the day. And, no one could have read it with the panache of DW.

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Beautifully read. For a train robbery with a suprising twist, I highly recommend this audiobook. Now for the movie.
