it was amazing

I have lingered over this book, not because it isn't gripping (it is), but because it may be the most downright enjoyable thing I've read this year. In spite of the hilarious comic-book title, it's an old-fashioned Western of the best and most classic kind; fast-paced; tightly-plotted and with a suitably complex and morally ambivalent hero - who, in this case, just happens to be a renegade, gun-toting nun. It's marvellous in every way; well-written, visually arresting, occasionally tongue-in-cheek humorous - not as bleakly Biblical as Cormac McCarthy, but certainly dark enough to satisfy lovers of the Sergio Leone Western and the Ennio Morricone soundtrack. Think KUNG FU, with nuns. I loved it.
