A. Customer says:
Yes she does B, for no other reason than she can - she does not like me constantly calling her out on her hollow, unbridledpretentious rubbish and she fancies herself as the UK's answer to Kirkfield. Perhaps I should thank her for the promo, she has done something I have never done here and mentioned my book. Thanks Shelagh, way to go!

I have never been as sick of these forums as I am right now. There are some truly foul people posting here.

"Do you have a personal conflict with this author?"

Absolutely not. There seems to be a great deal of conflict among readers about whether or not a book is spoiled if it contains errors.

ETA: You did ask "Why?"

I read the book in question and gave it a 4 star review. I think most of the reviewers commented on the typo errors etc. But to my mind it was the "quality" of the story which added to the higher ratings/ reviews.
It was an extremely (IMO) well plotted, thought out book - if you check out my reviews I don't give 4-5 stars lightly.
The point of my post is.........this author has potential which was clearly evident.......if you read the book.

@S - I loved that whole series and whilst I loved Lonesme Dove I loved Commanche Moon more. That was the one that had Blue Duck in it.

I read that one as well. Enjoyed it but enjoyed the first one more. Liked the tv mini series as well.

@S - I've never bothered with the miniseries although it has been recommended to me countless times.

I'm one of those people(readers) who think that their imagination is better than any movie director

@S......so did my imagination.

Have you read Blood Meridian?

I don't think so. I read the one where they are young rangers.

@S BM - is Cormac McCarthy.

His writing I admit could be viewed as an aquired taste - its almost lyrical/visual in prose. As a reader you can clearly see what he is describing.
I'm getting frustrated because I'm not a writer and I'm finding it difficult to put into words how to describe how beautiful/riveting his writing is.

But I digress - BM to me is the only western I've read that truly gives an accurate portrayal of how the times really would have/must have been.

@S....do you mean Dead Man's Walk?

Commance Moon was the next one I think.
