Hanne, reading on Cloud 9

Avid book reader. Lover of fantasy, contemporary fiction, short stories and non-fiction. This blog is a work in progress - and it will likely always be that way.

Day 9 - A book you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving

Lonesome Dove - Larry McMurtry

I just got active in to reading groups, and they chose Lonesome Dove so I read along. I had no idea what to expect, and not being a fan of Westerns in general I kind of expected myself to read 200 pages of this monster and call it quits.


But i didn't. I loved it. Every page of it.

This book is a classic, and i can only hope that 50 years from now people will still be reading it.


It's so good I refuse to read the sequels of this book. There's just no way they'll ever be as good and I don't want the experience ruined.
