Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry

Lonesome Dove - Larry McMurtry

How shall I review a book which has left me speechless, empty? A book which I keep thinking about even after finishing it. No distraction is helping me to take this book and all those unforgettable characters out of my mind? I don’t know what to write or where to begin? I just know that I am missing it so much that I want to re-read the whole thing again (which I may do soon) As am sure no other book can fill that emptiness for a long time now.

All I can say is no matter what i write no words can justify what I feel for Lonesome Dove. I just love everything about it. Which I least expected to do when i started initially.

 More than the story this book is about incredible characters. I loved Clara, Gus, Call, Newt, Deets, Dish, Lorena, July.. (in short everyone) even though I hate some of them but i still love them in a strange way. I loved the story too even though some of the things were left unsaid, though I wish it had ended differently.  I may not read the sequel of this book but I am looking forward to read more form this author who made me love a book about Westerners which I least expected to do.
