  1. This book had a good idea but lacked bite I felt. A good read nevertheless.

    Not the ending I expected, can’t help but think that the author was influcenced by Cormac McCarthy’s “Blood Meridian”, a much superior read.

    Believe the book was shortlisted for the Booker prize – surprized!

    However, two main characters well defined, narrative style good.

  2. This was a different book about two killers and the old west, describing their thoughts, their weaknesses and their disregard for the lives of others.

  3. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. A mixture of comedy and sadness. Could not wait until the ending so I read it as quickly as possible.
