The Sisters Brothers

With six weeks off before law school, I've had plenty of time to read. Monday I finished Kurt Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse Five". Yesterday I dove into a new novel released this past April, "The Sisters Brothers" by Patrick deWitt. deWitt's style reminds me of Charles Portis and his masterpiece "True Grit". Though the novel is technically a western, its wit and dark humor can be appreciated by those who don't normally indulge the western genre. I'm one third of the way through the book and can already highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. If you'd like a brief plot overview, check out the book trailer below. Since when did they start creating video trailers for books?
