Read in January, 2010

This book was good, but it disappointed me because at the beginning it really seemed like it would be great. Cormac McCarthy comparisons are, I think, pretty unfair for a debut novelist, and beyond the western setting and the tragic storyline, Hart doesn't live up to them. His descriptions of Idaho are perfect, but his dialogue and pacing undercut the intriguing plot and characters that he sets up in the first part of the novel. I'd love to read more from him...
