Read in July, 2009

Gifted to me by a near perfect stranger who couldn't believe I'd seen the movie but not read the source material, I started to read with some hesitancy, but quickly came to enjoy it. The writing is surprisingly good, and its basis as a seminal work in the western genre makes sense to me now: the gunfighter with a heart of gold but with a violent past which won't let go.
