Lonesome Dove is one of my favorite all time reads. As others have said, the characters are so incredibly well done that this book is perfect for those who enjoy great writing, whether they think they like westerns or don't. (I'm NOT usually a western fan). The sense of place is incredibly well done throughout all these books. The other books are quite good, but they aren't as good as Lonesome Dove. That isn't saying the other books aren't good, they just suffer by comparison to a true classic. The same could be said for many other books. McMurtry seems more at home with this period than any, especially the present. Don't let it slow you from selecting these books if you've struggeld through some of his present-day stuff, or breezed through and were left unsatisfied. These books are in a class by themselves. They are also much better than the Berrybinder books or his other westerns. Read Lonesome Dove because it is a classic and you will love it. Read the others to get the rest of the story. You won't be disappointed. In my opinion, this is series to be read and savored alone. They aren't particularly well suited to groups.

This was an excellent series - the best western I have ever read. After watching Lonesome Dove on television (more than once) it really gave life to all the characters in the book.

I'm on my fifth reading of this series and they seem as exciting this time as they did the first. As I'm reading, I'm anxiously awaiting the next page, while dreading the fact that I'm getting closer to the end. I feel as though I'm right there, living the adventure with the characters. It's sad, thrilling, exciting, and dreadful to live through their lives with them. Anyone who hasn't read this series has truly missed an great experience.

I was surprised by how quickly I became involved in the lives and struggles of McCrae and Call, and through them their loves and enemies, their associates and "friends." A rewarding read for a dedicated reader.

Absolutely amazing and totally worth the time you will spend reading them. If this series and the movie they made had a race this series would lap the movie three times it so much better.
