Read in February, 2008

In the beginning of Telegraph Days, Nellie Courtright and her brother Jackson shake up the sleepy old west town of Rita Blanca. I would have been happy if the story stayed right there. But in further adventures, Nellie drifts around the country, meeting up with figures from western history and lore. I loved McMurtry's dialogue and the main characters in this story but disliked the drifting plot and lack of cohesion. Best -- I listened to it on cd, and the reader, Annie Potts, was pitch-perfect.
