Read this book decades ago in college. Reread it again lately and it still holds up. The characters are real and some of the best Robbins has ever created. If you enjoyed his 'Still Life with Woodpecker' or some of Jackson McCrae's books ('Katzenjammer'), the you'll fall for COWGIRLS as well. Really funny material: wry, cynical, humorous, heart-felt, and well done. A must for EVERYONE'S bookshelf!

I had read the book years ago and this time I was slightly disappointed. It didn't hold up over time. I loved the characters Robbins created, but the plot was kind of thin, and it was difficult at times to follow the action, or exactly waht was happening. It was still very funny in places. Overall it was worth a second read, but I don't know if my standards have changed over the years or I'm liking different kinds of books.

    Hmm

    I gave this book 4 stars for being a hit above other books but for a Tom Robbins novel I was slightly dissapointed. Not my favorite by TR but still a truly unique and fascinating ride.
