"Far Bright Star makes the reader bleed with the characters and sweat with the intensity of the sun. ... Olmstead writes with a gritty style as sparse as the landscape itself." (Washington Post)
"Terrifying and abruptly beautiful, the new novel gleams with a masculine intensity; it is hard to read and hard to put down. ... Like Cormac McCarthy and Stephen Crane, Olmstead mourns the joke that violence makes of nobility." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
"Mystical overtones reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy at his best enlighten the prose, which is tautly written and laced with tension. ... Verbal precision and historical accuracy combine with a poetic distillation of a tragic event presented in solidly captivating reading experience that haunts the mind long after the final page is turned." (Dallas Morning News)
