Bookish Review: The Sisters Brothers

Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book. I don't remember why--maybe I won a contest? At any rate, the fact that I received a free copy did not affect my review.

I had read numerous glowing reviews of this book before I read it, but the descriptions didn't make it seem like my kind of story. A Western about a pair of assassin brothers? Not my usual cup of tea.

However, the reviews were right. The book is imminently readable and DeWitt has given the narrator a unique and compelling voice. It's a very different and unusual book, but I recommend it. DeWitt might consider a new author photo, though.
