Great story, characters are very human

Well written story you won't soon forget. Yes, you could nitpick about food coming without a word about it being ordered but that does not take away from the tale. Characters are human with flaws we/I can relate to. Have already bought the next one.

Very short with juvenile writing. Siuations not well thought out...for instance...characters had sat down to breakfast, waitress said order when ready, characters talk, suddenly waitress brings meal. Things like that happen throughout story that make the story sound like a 7th grader wrote it. It wanders off on tangents that dragged on and on. Would not recommend.

    Lots of Swearing

    Warning - if you like clean books this is not one - especially if you don't want to see the Lord's name used in vain.

     I can honestly say this book was worth every penny I paid for i

     I can honestly say this book was worth every penny I paid for it.  It was free.  The author must write with a well-thumbed thesaurus at his elbow.  I plowed through the first 22 pages before giving up.  In those few pages I stumbled over the following speed bumps:  describing a property as "Twenty-two coniferous acres scattered with a dozen sprawling patches of prairie, full of ... a wonderous, heavenly integrity of light."  A dozen sprawling patches of prairie in 22 acres?  And what the heck is an integrity of light?  The author also sprinkles in foreign phrases to give his writing a touch of class.  This is kind of silly in a gritty saga set in the Wyoming badlands.  Does the French phrase "coup de maitre" really convey that much more meaning than "master stroke" in English?  Does using the Latin phrase "Memento mori -- everyone dies" advance the plot in any way or add to the richness of the reader's experience especially when the author feels compelled to explain it in English?  I find these usages more pretentious than anything else.
