You could read Winnetou and critique Karl May? Legolas Send a noteboard - 18/04/2011 07:25:47 PM
I have had real trouble finding a "western" book as well. I have been toying with the idea that To Kill a Mockingbird, which I am currently reading, could be squeezed into it, but I think that is stretching the genre beyond breaking point. Yours is most definitely closer (mine being merely set in America :P), but I am not a great fan of gory violence. This genre may be my downfall.

Like many Europeans I've a lingering fondness for Karl May, but I'd be interested in someone doing a more serious critical review of his books.

And yes, To Kill a Mockingbird really is not a Western, though if this is your first time reading it, I'm certainly interested in your thoughts on that one as well.

And especially for Tom: McCarthy using repetition and polysyndeta to great effect. - 18/04/2011 07:32:43 PM 1258 Views
