Love Louis L'Amour Stories

This is the first Dramatization I've enjoyed.
I've only listen to a couple of dramatizations, but both were over-dramatized, with sound effects drowning out the voices, at times.

"That Triggernometry Tenderfoot" was different than the average L'Amour story: cattle trails, rustlers, Indian fighting, etc., I just wish it had been longer to develop the story more. I wasn't ready to stop listening. :-) But one of the things about Louis L'Amour is his ability to say a lot in a few words, so you don't feel it was incomplete.

It was a good story, well narrated by an all-star cast....an hour+ well spent.

Dramatization adds flair to OK L'Amour short

What made the experience of listening to That Triggernometry Tenderfoot (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

Nice to have a man's voice be a man's, a woman's voice be a woman's, and a child's a child's. You get used to men or women reading the part of the opposite sex (when the reader is good), but it is better to have men reading men and women reading women -- does not make you critique the reader, coming out of the story, or cringe.

Any additional comments?

Not L'Amour best and not worth more than $4.

Great

Really enjoyed this audio version. Usually enjoy reading books or listening to them, but ofter my second Dramatization and having multiple voices as well as sound effects, I began to really notice the effort put in to present the story to us the listener and find a great new effect for the author who is one of my favorites.
