Genre: Western Fiction; Story Collection
How Acquired: Barnes and Noble
Reading Began: September 8, 2004
Completed Reading: abandoned October 2, 2004
Overall rating: Three out of ten
Recommendation to others: For those who love the genre and/or the writers in this collection. If not, perhaps this isn’t the book for you.
Why I chose to read this book: I liked the idea of modern western stories, and I was in a cowboy phase.
Comments: This seemed like a good idea at the time, but I could never really get into the stories in this collection. I’m sure there are some great ones included, as there are great authors, but my focus wasn’t here. Rather than toil and force myself to read them, I opted to pass it along to a BookCrosser who might find it more to her taste.
