It was a good book. Not sure I would have awarded the Pulitzer Prize, though. I liked that it was long and sweeping, and I certainly became invested in the characters. I have always liked westerns.
It was like a prequel to the lonesome dove series, which I loved.
I enjoyed going back and picking up the characters as younger becoming the men of Lonesome Dove. The stories were riveting to the point that I covered the entire book in only three days. McMurtry covers a wide range of emotions in a very realistic manner.
It was okay, but just okay. I am glad to have finished the four-book series, but this one does not stand out to me among them. Lonesome Dove was definitely the best of the four. This one seems to focus a little too much, in my opinion, on torture scenes and that got to me a little. The narrator was okay, but I often felt as if he affected his voice a little too dramatically.
great book awesome narrator
Very good "read"!
Excellent presentation and writing enjoyed this book very much
