A Fine L'Amour Story; An Excellent Narrator
What did you love best about The Quick and the Dead?
It's a nice departure from the standard L'Amour (not that they aren't all great), in that it follows a family moving westward. Still, bad guys and good guys supply action and tactics.
What does Jason Culp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Culp is ideal for L'Amour stories, and likely for much more. Totally transparent, he doesn't try to affect the performance with the silly, phony Western accents that infect some renderings of L'Amour novels. Rather, he stays out of the way, generating believable voices for multiple characters, including females. Nicely done!
Any additional comments?
A worthy novel, well narrated.

Better then expected. Good story!
Can not wait for another Louis L'AMOUR Story! I love westerns by great authors.
