Stephen Bly has always expressed a sense of humor in his books, but this one is the absolute funniest of them all. Part of its charm is the historical setting.

I read this book quickly (like in less than two days) and it kept my interest the entire time despite being almost 400 pages long. However, the book I read was the la ...more

Throw the Devil Off the Train by Stephen Bly is one fantastic book. Most of the story takes place inside of the train heading West. Two unlikely people meet and at first can’t stand each other, but before long become close friends.

Fun, action, suspense

From the first page, Stephen Bly captures your attention, with humorous conversations between the main characters and even with the side characters. I couldn't put it down...had to keep reading about all the antics going on! Men or women would both enjoy this book!

Very entertaining read. The heroine kept me guessing for several chapters. I liked that neither the heroine of hero were very admirable in the beginning, they were people to root for in the end.

Funny western, I thought they made it into a movie I'm not sure, they should.
