I am usually a fan of Greeley's, but this was a real disappointment. It isn't at all like the description of the book-really fell flat. Don't bother reading.
The love of the game and the pain of the game.
It made me nostalgic. There were very painful parts and redeeming parts.
A well written baseball story with a somewhat predictable ending, but with a surprise twist. Not your standard Grisham churn out.
Very suspenseful and keeps you guessing who the serial killer is until the end. Good read.
Over does the descriptions and drags out the book a bit, but over all a good read and worth the listen.
The best thing by far about this book is Annie Pott's rendering. She made it possible to finish. It is not (as advertised) a book about gunfighters, but instead one woman's journey through life. As such, it does give a broad picture of just how short lived the "Wild West" really was. It is tedious in places, as are many of McMurtry's books since Lonesome Dove. Maybe an author only has one truly great book in his heart. I enjoyed it to a point, but my husband got really tired of the plot.
How wordy can you get? Boring, boring, boring - gruesome forever and the dog, would he NEVER shut up with his yadda, yadda, yadda.
I have read and enjoyed Koontz, but should have paid closer attention to the negative reviews. They were right on the mark. I wouldn't reccomend this book to anybody.
A totally insipid book. . .drags on and on without suspense and is truly silly. A complete waste of good time. Couldn't even listen to the last 2 CD's.
