Where does The Homesman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
One of the best novels I have purchased this year. The story is unusual and full of fascinating historical detail about a time and place I was utterly unaware of.
What did you like best about this story?
The premise that in the appalling conditions in which the first settlers in the West endured sent many of them literally mad
Have you listened to any of Candace Thaxton’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No, but I certainly will watch out for her as I thought she was quite execllent
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
There is a film of this book, and I reckon the tag line should be " not as good as the book"
Any additional comments?
Having seen the film and thoroughly enjoyed it I was interested to listen to the book. Having said that what I was delighted to find was that the book itself was a hundred times better than the film, and filled in all the details which I felt were week in the film.
I cant believe with all that great writing it ended with a whimper. Really left me borderline angry that I got involved in reading it. It's like have a rich dessert that you are willing to risk the calories on because it's such a work of art and all the layers bring bursts of flavor. Then suddenly you bite into something that nearly breaks a tooth. Then the rest of the dessert just melts into mush while you're still trying to figure out what happened.

What a great story with super characters. The story was moving along nicely, then the author totally changed the entire story line. Confused and disappointed.
