essemgee Day 3: upcoming reading stack...if I actually stacked up all the books in my apartment I've yet to read, it would probably reach the ceiling (which I kind of want to do now, out of curiosity, so I might) but these are a few I plan to read this summer...anyone read any of these, and if so, what did you think? #books #lillytalesbigten 5mon

  •   matthew_lawson I did enjoy The Sisters Brother, especially because it is a western, which I know you also enjoy. Not to mention a recently published western which is rare. I will however say, I think it was missing that little something that could make it 'great'. I'm sure you will understand what I mean upon completion. Be sure to let me know what you think. 2mon
  •   tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson I will for sure, what do you think of the cover? Here in Canada this is the only cover available, even on the smaller paperback and on the rare hardcover. I have been feeling very unfulfilled after I finished the Lonesome Dove books, so hopefully this one helps. I may read a few of the single McMurtry books I have, I am also chomping at the bit to get my hands on the new McCormick book, which I believe comes out this month. Right oh, I will let you know what I think of this book, brother. 2mon
  •   matthew_lawson I actually like the cover, it definitely catches the eye, and being as it is a 'modern' western, I guess they had to be creative. I own a hardcover copy with the same cover, in Australia I have seen only one different cover, but I do prefer the original. I wouldn't go expecting this book to fill that void, I hate to say it, but no western will ever compare (in my opinion) now that you have read 'Lonesome Dove'. Only 'Blood Meridian' comes close, haha. I look forward to your thoughts, my friend. 2mon
  •   tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson Blood Meridian stands on its own my friend. I think the Boarder Trilogy, comes close, All The Pretty Horses has the love story, and the other two have some of the aspects. I am seriously considering re reading Lonesome Dove in a few books from now. 2mon
  •   tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson so I liked this book, but I didn't find it as great as I was expecting. It was very well written and very good story but it just seemed a bit simple in how it progressed. I did find some parts funny but also found I was expecting the ending. Overall its a 3 - 3.5 out of 5 in my opinion. 1mon
  •   matthew_lawson Yes, definitely. I didn't want to spoil it too badly for you. The story is good, however, the characters lack that 'hero' appeal. There is nothing overly spectacular about their abilities or the story itself. The writing was good, I just felt the protagonists could be more likeable, able, and 'worthy' of our time - if that makes any sense. 1mon
  •   tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson it was just a bit predictable, a bit too cliche, still a very good story 1mon
  •   micolbug @tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson oh, finally I am finding your thoughts on Sisters Brothers!! It appears as if I liked it a little more than the two of you! I thought the dialogue was clever, and I loved to hate the characters, I liked the irony of the "tender" (if you could call it that) " evil" brother (his name has slipped my mind). However, never should you compare any contemporary fiction to Lonesome Dove or anything by McCarthy!! Contemporary fiction is much more enjoyable if you do not allow that to happen, as hard as that may be!! 😀 4w
