Wild West circa WWI
Fistful of Reefer is an action-packed romp through the wild west circa the first world war. The scenery is painted as dangerous and gorgeous as in any John Ford film. The action is fast, but driven by characters with deep motivations that make sense. I was impressed with the sharp witty dialogue, and each character had their own unique manner of speech that reflected their various ethnicities and cultures, but still sounded 100% legit. The story itself is entertaining and suspenseful. This book works as a fun action novel filled with surprises, but it also works at a deeper level--for instance, the religious symbology woven throughout that you almost won't notice on a conscious level unless you decide to slow down and ponder it. Fistful of Reefer is just a well-thought, well-executed entertaining read, and I enjoyed escaping into and being immersed in a simpler time and place that this book reminds us wasn't really so simple.Was this review helpful?

A fun and funny read with plenty of fast Paced Action
Fistful is a fast-paced, action-packed book that revolves around a renegade Texas Ranger chasing an elusive trio of like-able and colorful outlaws. I thoroughly enjoyed this book - though it is much different than what I normally read. If you like action/adventure, dynamic and funny characters, a bullet (or many) flying, and/or the old west - you should enjoy Fistful!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
