Wow! A big book indeed and it did take me a while to get through because I have had very limited reading time and so you would think you might not be able to keep tabs on the story if you're reading it bit by bit - wrong. I loved the story and like others have said, when that last page came I just wanted to read another 1000 pages! With big books I find there is usually at least one section which is, hm, let's say, a tad boring - not so with 'Lonesome Dove', there was no part at all I wished I could skip over. If you haven't read this one you should! Don't be daunted by the size, it really does read quite fast, even if you read it quite slow.

Glenn If you can pick up the DVD of the TV mini-series (1988) with Robert Duvall (Gus McCrae) and Tommy Lee Jones (Woodrow Call), do so Mandy. It's excellent!

Mandy There's a mini-series?! I will definitely check that out, thanks, Glenn!

Mandy Sherry, I loved them both also - along with Newt :o)
