I'm a huge fan of Peckinpah and Tarantino, and knew with this read I was signing up for some vivid slow-motion violence. What took me by surprise was how deep the characters are drawn and how unexpected the story lines run. I mean, we kind of know how this ends. Not for young kids, this is story of men, right and wrong, moving on a glorious canvas 150 years ago. A movie of "The Long Tattoo" might lose many of the finer shades, but I'd love to see it.
Jerrold Mundis. Book 3. The Long Tattoo. WARNING: not for the squeamish. Set in the times of the civil war this book is sure to be of interest to many. I found it both captivating and brutal. It certainly keeps your attention from page 1 to the end. 5 stars. 04 March 2015.
