I was led to this book by the tv series, and this is one of the cases where I can honestly say that I like both the tv adaptation and the book equally. There are differences between the two--but they work. Whoever did the casting did an amazing job, despite the differences. I did have some trouble occasionally with flashbacks--not sure how much of that was because I was going too fast and had to skid to backtrack and catch up. That said, after reading this book, I love the series even more. Dry snarky wit, excellent literary references, characters that leap off the pages, and a backdrop painted in figurative language that pops. Am looking forward to revisiting Absaroka-in print and onscreen.

“I think there was an awful lot about him that I thought I knew, but the truth was I was just coloring in the missing parts with colors I liked.”

“Small chains wound their way through the trigger guards with little bronze locks at the end of each row. It was like a chain gang for weapons. Some of them might be good, some of them might be bad, but there was no way to tell until somebody picked them up.”
