User Review  - Erin - Goodreads

This Portis fella can really spin a yarn. A meandering tale, but the book is spot on and didn't drag or run off course. I read it in 24 hours. The main character is highly likable, and the rest of the lot ridiculous and entertaining. I would definitely read another by him. Read full review

Excellent book; a cross between a funny version of McCarthy, and a Robichaux mystery vibe. Portis rocks more than Clinton Portis. Read full review

Great book. Portis is a master. Everyone should read him. I have read all five novels; I think I have read True Grit three times now. Everyone should have to read True Grit once to maintain their United States citizenship. Read full review
