    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    A. Wright says: "Inspired reading of a great book"
    "Unbelievably Good"
    Overall

    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.
    Cheers!

    Stephen King's first full-length solo novel since Dreamcatcher, the long-awaited From a Buick 8 is "nearly flawless and one terrific entertainment," says Publishers Weekly. A strange car acts as a conduit between our world and some other...and the boogeyman of this creepy story is our collective fascination with deadly things.

    J M says: "Essence of Stephen King"
    "I never read a bad Stephen King book"
    Overall

    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.
    Cheers!
