Sushicat | 805 comments Man Booker shortlists 2011

The Sisters brothers are on a job for the Commodore to kill a man he accuses of theft. On their way from Oregon to the gold fields of California they cross paths with a long list of colorful characters, the encounters narrated and commented on by Eli, the younger of the two, who is disenchanted with his choice of career and longs for a quieter life. At times thoughtful or funny, this is a very enjoyable read. I'm looking forward for the upcoming movie.

Susie | 4488 comments I’m going to be honest. I really want to read this because of the cover.

Tracy (tstan) | 1238 comments I liked this. If I remember correctly, there’s some clever wordplay in the book, and not just the title.

Sushicat | 805 comments The cover did it for me as well.
