I keep waiting for redemption. I don't think it's gonna happen. The Texas vernacular and the repartee is spot on, but the book is as bleak, dusty, and dry as the Texas landscape.
I loved the narration. It really sold me and transported me to another time and place. The story was slow going but I couldn't stop reading.
I've never touched a western book in my life,and when someone told me to check this out I thought I'd hate it. But Im in love with this book because it doesn't feel like a western,just a story told in the west.
Classic case of a great story with an ending that didn't match--really left a lot still to be desired/resolved.
