Product description

This title is now a major film written and directed by the Coen Brothers. Narrated by bestselling American author Donna Tartt, who brings "True Grit" - her favourite book - to life with perfect intonation, insight and suspense. There is no knowing what lies in a man's heart. On a trip to buy ponies, Frank Ross is killed by Torn Chancy, who shoots him down for a horse, $150 cash, and two gold pieces. Ross' single-minded teenage daughter, Mattie, travels to claim his body...Then she meets Rooster - a man with grit - and persuades him to join her on a deadly quest to avenge her father's murder. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.

Review quote

"A new film version of True Grit, starring Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld, is just out: don't see it until you've read, and wondered at the brilliance of, the real thing." Christina Hardyment, The Times (audiobook review) "Charles Portis is perhaps the most original talent overlooked by literary culture in America." Esquire "It is a pleasure to be able to recommend a novel wholeheartedly... an instant classic." Newsday "What book has given me greater pleasure in the last five years? Or in the last twenty? I do not know. What a writer!" Roald Dahl"
