Audio Book Summary

The epic four-volume cycle that began with Larry McMurty's Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece, Lonesome Dove, is completed with this brilliant and haunting novel—a capstone in a mighty tradition of storytelling.

Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow F. Call, now in their middle years, are just beginning to deal with the enigmas of the adult heart—Gus with his great love, Clara Forsythe; and Call with Maggie Tilton, the young whore who loves him. Two proud but very different men, they enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of Buffalo Hump, the great Comanche war chief; Kicking Wolf, the celebrated Comanche horse thief; and a deadly Mexican bandit king with a penchant for torture.

Comanche Moon joins the twenty-year time line between Dead Man's Walk and Lonesome Dove, following beloved heroes Gus and Call and their comrades-in-arms—Deets, Jake Spoon, and Pea Eye Parker—in their bitter struggle to protect an advancing Western frontier against the defiant Comanches, courageously determined to defend their territory and their way of life.

At once vividly imagined and unflinchingly realistic, Comanche Moon is a sweeping, heroic adventure full of tragedy, cruelty, courage, honor and betrayal, and the culmination of Larry McMurty's peerless vision of the American West.

    It was a good book. Not sure I would have awarded the Pulitzer Prize, though. I liked that it was long and sweeping, and I certainly became invested in the characters. I have always liked westerns. It was like a prequel to the lonesome dove series, which I loved.

    I enjoyed going back and picking up the characters as younger becoming the men of Lonesome Dove. The stories were riveting to the point that I covered the entire book in only three days. McMurtry covers a wide range of emotions in a very realistic manner.

    It was okay, but just okay. I am glad to have finished the four-book series, but this one does not stand out to me among them. Lonesome Dove was definitely the best of the four. This one seems to focus a little too much, in my opinion, on torture scenes and that got to me a little. The narrator was okay, but I often felt as if he affected his voice a little too dramatically.
