Lonesome Dove (Lonesome Dove) by Larry Mcmurtry
Lonesome Dove (Lonesome Dove)

Masechkva, January 12, 2011

I am not typically a fan of Westerns, but I am a fan of beautifully written literature. There is something so effortless about Mcmurty's style. The characters in this novel became living, breathing beings, and their stories, while so different from my own life's story, resonated poignantly. It's a tale about the circumstances and time in history in which one is born and about the camaraderie of humanity. It is also a tale about pure and simple luck; Life is just a gamble after all, be it Lonesome Dove or Portland, OR.
