Mr. McMurtry's depiction of Lonesome Dove is simply wonderful. The characters seem so simple, so matter of fact, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. The book is long, however, once I was 20 minutes into it, it never dragged. I repeat, it never dragged. For a book this size not to lag anywhere is quite a feat. The plot has a couple sub-plots that are interlocked, but these sub-plots are clear and concise. One of the best stories I've read in the past several years. My hat goes off to Larry McMurtry.
To me, Stephen King is either good or amazing. In this book, he is good. Some parts really dig into you, other parts don't. If you liked, "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon", I think you'll like this as well.
