The final chapter was not satisfying to me, though. Maybe because I was not ready for the story to end, but the premise presented in the last chapter seemed too familiar and gimmicky. I choose to end the novel at the next-to-last chapter or write a better ending in my head.
The reader follows the main character, Threadgill, on a journey of revenge in which he meets more than a dozen fellow travelers on the road. These characters are so well-written, so ALIVE, that they jump right off the page. You'll love Threadgill, you'll love his story, and you'll love all the others who populate the pages of Pickett's Charge.
I highly recommend this beautifully-written and imaginative piece of fiction by Charles McNair.
