Sometimes the going ain t easy But McMurtry captures the good with the bad when it comes to making it as a novelist. Absolutely great Read Some can whistle the sequel Another good read great Didn t care for this book, the story of a young man who was kind of a lost soul The book starts with him being a lost soul, continues with him being a lost soul and ends with him being a lost soul Not really my kind of story, and certainly disappointing coming from a writer of McMurtry s caliber.
