Description

The final book of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove tetralogy is an exhilarating tale of legend and heroism. Captain Woodrow Call, August McCrae's old partner, is now a bounty hunter hired to track down a brutal young Mexican bandit. Riding with Call are an Eastern city slicker, a witless deputy, and one of the last members of the Hat Creek outfit, Pea Eye Parker, now married to Lorena - once Gus McCrae's sweetheart. This long chase leads them across the last wild streches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier.

Critiques

" Streets of Laredo is a splendid addition to the literary portrait of McMurtry's native Texas and the West that he has been creating for three decades. It's also one of his most affectingly melancholy books.... The characters are as finely etched as any McMurtry has ever minted." ( Newsweek)
"One of McMurtry's most powerful and moving achievements." ( Los Angeles Times)
"A marvelous novel in its own right and in every way a worthy successor to Lonesome Dove." ( Chicago Tribune)

Nicely wraps up the lonesome dove saga

Top notch story with excellent characters. Realistic situations with realistic outcomes blended with a good perspective on early life in South Texas

It's sure not Lonesome Dove...

Depressing, disjointed and drawn out. Maybe an abridged version would have been better, or a different narrator but the charm and humor of Lonesome Dove was totally missing.

A guy responds

I loved Lonesome Dove. This is not nearly as good.
The reader is almost as good as Lonesome dove. I liked him.
Seemed like some characters that got killed in LD were reinevented as new characters here.
The plot was slow.
A good enough listen, but not LD. I won't read anymore in the series at this point.

Torturous listening

Could he read any slower?? I am a big Larry McMurtry fan but after trying to listen for a few hours I had to delete this book because, aside from the story going nowhere, the reader was driving me crazy. I even increased the speed on my iPod but it didn't help. At the risk of sounding mean, I will avoid any other books narrated by this reader.

An noy ing nar rat orrr

Would you try another book from Larry McMurtry and/or Daniel Von Bargen?

Will never touch a book read by this narrator. most annoying and unnatural cadence. Mispronunciations throughout and awful attempt at accents.

Would you recommend Streets of Laredo to your friends? Why or why not?

Nope. Narration is too distracting.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Daniel Von Bargen?

Anyone but.

Was Streets of Laredo worth the listening time?

No

Terrible McMurtry Book - Depressing & Painful

I enjoyed the Lonesome Dove serious, but this book is a terrible way to end the series if it actually ever ends. This book was written with no plot in mind and was obviously done while the writer was on the toilet. Book is painfully over-detailed with parts making you want to fast forward to find a happy moment, but no happy endings, no bright futures for the characters and no sense of realism of pioneering America. Full of evil winning every moment just awful. I am thoroughly disgusted with the reader who was monotone like reading from a childsbook. Sad, depressing, morbid and boring....buyers beware.

A strong disappointment

If you're wanting to continue the adventures of the characters from Lonesome Dove, if you loved the guys and gals, don't bother with this book.

A poor attempt

To follow up Lonesome Dove would be quite the challenge and this has been a miserable attempt. I want my money back.

Worst. Book. Ever

Hated every minute of it. It's as bad as Lonesome Dove is good. Like reading bad fan fiction

disappointing

I've loved the other lonesome dove books but this one was not all that great. it could have been about a quarter of the length if the characters hadn't all been harping things repetitively.
and, though i know some men are scum, all but four of the men mentioned in this story were seemingly leering rapists. i understand things were different then, but really it was so annoying that half the book was thoughts of how the men think poorly of the women.
maria's character was annoying. why didn't she just let them kill her son?
overall, mcmurtry just was too repetitious in this one. seems like he was just trying to fill space. it could have been a really great story.
