5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT WESTERN NOVEL, 25 Mar 2012
This review is from: True Grit (Paperback)
Great western novels are rare; the truth is, there are scant few. True Grit is one of them. Probably like quite a few others I came to this novel after seeing the Coen Brother Remake. It was actually my first foray into western fiction, and it had me hooked. Afterwards, I went off trying to find more great westerns, and found, again, a scant few. If you liked True Grit, you may also like Lonesome Dove, Josey Wales: Gone To Texas & The Vengeance Trail Of Josey Wales [Two Westerns], and Kit Cope Rides the High Country and Little Big Man (Panther) All three are great western novels, but to my surprise I discovered that Lonesome Dove is the greatest western of them all, even better than True Grit!
But as for TG itself, it's a must read. It's short, witty, action-filled and authentic, written with a strong sense of character (Matty Ross's that is!)... it's a charming read, and I hope it severs as an opening for you to the world of western fiction, because the truth is there are a few unmissable titles out there - few, yes - but great great books that many unfortunately biased readers live to miss!!!
Read em!!!
