Reviews

Fun

(3 stars)

This book had shallow, stereotyped characters, improbable situations, a silly romance, and a ridiculous code of honour. And it's a western. Have I mentioned I don't like westerns? But none of these issues stopped me from enjoying the story. Despite all its flaws it was simply good fun. I hope I can find more Deadwood Dick books. See, even the name is ridiculous. And he's not the only one, he's Deadwood Dick junior, so somewhere out there is Deadwood Dick senior. The mind boggles. Many thanks to the narrators who contributed to this book.
