Not so entertaining
Would you try another book from Joseph M. Marshall and/or Joseph M. Marshall and John Terry ?
I won't buy any more. The story is long winded and the narration very flat and dull.
Has Hundred in the Hand turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, I love westerns and the Larry McMurtry books here are excellent.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Lacking in every sense of the word. Every chapter read in the same flat, uninspiring tone, no highlighting dramatic events, no distinguishing between different characters.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Interesting to hear the the story from the indians point of view.
Any additional comments?
An author isn't necessarily a good narrator!!
