#audiobook #bookreview -One Million Ways to Die in the West by Seth MacFarlane

20257564

I got the unabridged audiobook from the library, thanks to the Libby app.

A Million Ways to Die in the West written by Seth Macfarlane(Family Guy, American Dad, the Orville) is based on the movie written by Seth Macfarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, and was narrated by Jonathan Frakes(most know him as Commander Riker on Star Trek TNG).

This is about a guy named Albert, a sheep farmer, who is known as a cowardly nerd. His longterm girlfriend brakes up with him, while a new woman comes to town. He befriends this woman and she teaches him how to shoot. It comes in handy a couple of times.

This is the first book I finished for 2020, and I tell you this year is starting off with a bang. I loved this book! There were a lot of fun characters and the world-building was incredible. There is one scene near the end, that I was particularly awed by. (How did I miss this movie?). I should warn you, there is a lot of cussing in it, and a few sex scenes. Also, some detailed gunshots and such. You need to have a very open mind and a very strong stomach to enjoy it. There were times when I almost fell out of the chair from laughing so hard.

I admit I was bummed that Seth did not do the audiobook, but Jonathan Frakes was a perfect choice. I tend to worry about males reading female characters, but I had no issues with Jonathan Frakes doing it. Tho, I am ashamed to say, that a couple of times I had to remind myself it was not Commander Riker reading it(I am usually good at keeping actors separate from the characters they play). But Jonathan Frakes was impressive. How he was able to read some of that with a straight face is beyond me, now that is what I call acting.

If you love westerns, and or comedy, I highly recommend this book. And if you are a fan of Seth Macfarlane and/or Jonathan Frakes, then you definitely need to read this. I highly recommend the audiobook, not sure if the regular book would do it justice. But this is my new favorite book of all time now.
