.
The Long Night of Winchell DearThis story jumped all over the place was very hard to read It would start out present ay in one paragraph the very next paragraph would be backstory from 20 years ago which then made the narrator recall that time 5 years ago which then made him recall that other time 15 years ago where the heck are we what is going on Stop getting so BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) distracted rambling off on tangents tell the story This was an enjoyable short read As an audiobook it went very uickly and I anxiously awaited the inevitable end of the story Right from the beginning you know that all the characters are going to come crashing together at the end somehow but you want to enjoy their stories along the way It was expertly read by Richard McGonagle and I could practically feel the Texasust in my eyes while he read the story I chose to read this book because the PopSugar Reading Challenge I m working on includes a western I ve never read a western before and I m always willing to try something new You never know This novel is 160 pages and I should have read this in a Algorithm Of Future day or two but every single time I tried to read it I fell asleep No joke I seriously fell asleep four or five times reading this Iidn t find any fault with the writing style but this was one of the most pointless books I ve ever read Not a single character had any sort of backstory or personality they were all one The Progressive Guide to Alternative Media and Activism Project Censored Open Media Pamphlet Series 8 dimensional and we know almost nothing about them It was a book full of side characters We ve just stepped into a singleay in time knowing nothing about these people and are stumbling through trying to figure out what s going on and who is who and you never really figure it out Weird and confusing plot I m not even really sure what I read at this point but it was not goodWould I recommendNo I m sure there s a better western out there if that s what you re into beautifully written In My Shoes delicate and well told unforgettable characters I have enjoyed Robert James Waller and this book is a littleifferent from the others It is almost a mystery thril.
