Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sisters Brothers (Kindle Edition)
This author is a superb marketing man because I bought it on the cover and the tube trailer...but it just wasn't for me. Perhaps that's the problem. I'm probably not the target.
It starts off well - two brothers and two horses ( yes, there's a horse story and we like the horse- so it helps) with a mystery boss that they cross California for.
At first it is engaging and unusual and the detail of the era, especially in Frisco is captivating...and then, suddenly, it just gets dull.
I lost why they were travelling. I lost sympathy with the protagonist - actually all I wanted was the horse and that's worrying.
So, it is an unusual book and it clearly has fans - but as for the story and the character...not sure what it was or why I cared.
Not an author I'll buy again.
