The Dolan Girls By S. R. Mallery (audio book review)

Narrated By Nancy Peterson

The Dolan Girls by S. R. Mallery has it all. Set in Nebraska during the 1800s, whorehouse madams, ladies of the night, a schoolmarm, a Pinkerton detective, a Shakespeare-quoting old coot, brutal outlaws, and a horse-wrangler fill out the cast of characters. Added to the mix are colorful descriptions of an 1856 land rush, Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show, Annie Oakley, bank/train robberies, small town local politics, and of course, romance. Two, in fact!

My Review (from audible review form)

Would you listen to The Dolan Girls again? Why?
Yes, I would. This is a really great story and there is so much about that to take in so I think that read or listen to it again makes it even better.

What other book might you compare The Dolan Girls to and why?
I havent read many other books like this, it is quite a new genre to me and I really enjoyed it and I want to read more book like this.

What does Nancy Peterson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
English isnt my native language so I think there are things I would miss if I read it and not listening. It is all about how the story was told to how the English is used and pronounced. The story itself is quite slow but very interesting so I think I would not finished it if I just read it and I would miss a really great book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Not cry, but my heart ached. I got angry and I laughed. The book is so filled with feelings so I think it is impossible not to feel while listening to the book and this amazing story.

Any additional comments?
a really great book that I now have bought as paperback because it is really great. It opened me to a new genre off books that I want to dig deep into.

The story flows very nice and it is very nice to get a family and how they change over time.
