E cast of characters losers cheaters and ne'er do wells from all stripes of life and told by a complex and compelling narrator it is a violent lustful odyssey through the underworld of the s frontier that beautifully captures the humor melancholy and grit of the Old West and two brothers bound by blood violence and lov. When the Commodore orders the Sisters brothers to kill Herman Kermit Warm and take his mysterious formula they have no idea the series of misadventures they will endure in the undertaking I've been interested in this book forever and nabbed it on the cheap when it popped up on one of my ebook newsletter things It may have been that my expectations were too high but this didn't live up to the hype for me I liked the characters of Eli and Charlie Sister natural born killers in the old west They were funny at times and brutal at others I also liked the overly formal Western dialog with few contractions much like the Coehn brothers version of True Grit I suspect the novel has the same style of dialog but I've yet to read it It also reminded me of Richard Brautigan's The Hawkline Monster at times The book is described as being a picaresue adventure which it is It's also not a very interesting one for long stretches at a time I loved the writing but I kept getting drowsy while reading it I've never before been torn between my admiration for writing and my desire to toss a book back on the unread pile for something interesting I did like it than I thought it was bland though There were enough twists and reversals of fortune to keep me from drooling on my Kindle There were a few close calls though Three out of five stars

The Sisters BrothersN easy mark and on the road from Oregon City to Warm's gold mining claim outside Sacramento Eli begins to uestion what he does for a living and whom he does it forWith The Sisters Brothers Patrick deWitt pays homage to the classic Western transforming it into an unforgettable comic tour de force Filled with a remarkabl. I wanted to love this book It jumped off of my pile of shortlisted Booker Prize nominees and demanded to be read first Everything about it shouted Yes it's literature but IT's FUN The premise is that of a classic picaresue novel Charlie and Eli Sisters two professional assassins in 1850 are sent by their employer to hunt down and kill Herman Kermit Warm who may or may not have stolen something In the course of their journey from Oregon to California at the height of the gold rush they meet a panoply of misfits and losers who provide a steady stream of often humorous incidents that help to explicate the brother's relationship Add to this set up a narrative voice provided by Eli the younger of the two gunslinging brothers that has a deadpan simplicity that is oddly appealing And it is worth noting it has the best cover I've seen in a long timeWith so much going for it why doesn't Patrick deWitt's novel deliver Ultimately it is a failure to integrate the disparate events into a cohesive plot or arc for character development Things happen and some of them are funny but they don't lay the groundwork for growth in Eli's character that the form demands It doesn't help that once the brothers find their target that the plot twist that leads to the climax of the book is singularly flat and generates no tension It also didn't help that there are historical incongruities particularly around the state of dentistry that are jarring and out of place even in a story that in no way purports to be realist realistic details would help to sustain the truth that can be found in absurdity deWitt is a talented writer and while I don't think he shouldn't win the Booker for this outing I do look forward to seeing what he comes up with next
