This book has the coolest cover ever What s great, though, is that the coolness doesn t end there.Charlie and Eli sisters are Gold Rush era contract killers They re hired for what Eli hopes to be their last job, as he d much prefer to hang his holster and settle down with a nice girl or failing that, the first trollop that crosses his path It makes no difference to him, really dude is such a sweetheart Charlie, on the other hand, is the less sensitive one It d be tougher to convince him to make [...]

I wanted to love this book It jumped off of my pile of shortlisted Booker Prize nominees and demanded to be read first Everything about it shouted Yes, it s literature, but IT s FUN The premise is that of a classic picaresque novel Charlie and Eli Sisters, two professional assassins in 1850 are sent by their employer to hunt down and kill Herman Kermit Warm who may, or may not, have stolen something In the course of their journey from Oregon to California, at the height of the gold rush, they me [...]

Saddle up and ride along with Charlie and Eli Sisters down a trail of dark comedy.The horses are accustomed to gun fire but all your laughing out loud may spook um a bit From what I ve heard the production of this movie has finished and it should hit the theaters some time this year, 2018 Staring John C Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Rutger Hauer and Jake Gyllenhaal.

When the Commodore orders the Sisters brothers to kill Herman Kermit Warm and take his mysterious formula, they have no idea the series of misadventures they will endure in the undertaking.I ve been interested in this book forever and nabbed it on the cheap when it popped up on one of my ebook newsletter things It may have been that my expectations were too high but this didn t live up to the hype for me.I liked the characters of Eli and Charlie Sister, natural born killers in the old west They [...]

What theally not sure what I just read Yippie yi yo kaye Like the cover it s edgy, aptly tagged as cowboy noir Avoid it if you re looking for a traditional western, no white hats, no riding happily off into the sunset Same thing if you look for nice characters to bond with A couple of hired guns Eli and brother Charlie Sisters aren t particularly likeable unless you have a soft spot for psychopaths, Eli s border line and brother Charlie full blown Hey, they had a tough childhood Read this if lik [...]

1.99 on Kindle December 21, 2017I ve floated this before when it was on sale, but it s really good and deserves a shout out 1 DEC 2016 1.99 on Kindle This was really good, I thought I recommend Review also found at theparanormalpaladin.wordpresThe setting for this book is during the time of the Gold Rush in California Most people are dirt poor and lots of them headed west to try and make their fortune, but ended up starving to death, getting murdered, or died by some other sickness or disease Ev [...]

I was sitting in my car outside the Mission Viejo Public Library waiting for my friend Townes to come out with some books I had told him I was in a western frame of mind and to pick me up something published rather recently Like what, Townes had said Like, The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt, published in 2011, I had said I did not go inside with Townes because there was a cute South African librarian working there and I wasn t happy about my looks at the moment.Townes came back with four boo [...]

I am so not the target audience for this story.I mean it s a western.Right Still the cover art kept pulling at meIt s the 1850 s, gold rush, CaliforniaAnd the Sisters Brothers are two killers for hire,on the trail on a job.And I thoroughly enjoyed it, from the get go.Charlie Sisters has the lead here, but it is Eli that will take you there.And tell you all about his horse, poor Tub, and the women he meets along the way.How he feels what he wants how he sees things, love and some alarmingly, grue [...]

A yep The Western is dead Yeah, I m happy too, because I love stories about the bloody history of the not so new world As much as I love the great Western classics, their time is up The Western has carried a lot of negative shit in its saddle bags, shit that needs to be buried with it The Western began as Historical Fiction, obviously, but it s popularity soon made it a genre all it s own, one especially overloaded with clich s and predictability It started selling myths as political propaganda, [...]

I like reading about bad people in fiction And, lest we jump to conclusions, it s not because I m a bad person myself at least not in the torture or kill people kind of way no, the sins in which I dabble are much pedestrian than that , but it s because I like peering into those dark little corners of their brains And, what is often the most frightening and fascinating is when I find that, really, they re much like me than I care to admit Take Pulp Fiction, for example, which may be my favorite [...]

I love the cover of this book Simply love it And I d hoped that I d be as excited by the words inside the pages Unfortunately, not so much It wasn t bad, it just never quite grabbed me, never convinced me of the genius that existed between the covers that had it nominated for so many awards.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook [...]

A novel that is as whip snap sharp and original as the artwork on the cover Well, I say original, but who am I to judge, as I don t read Westerns and have never read any of the stuff that Mr de Witt is being compared to I ve not read Charles Portis maybe I should , although I did sit through the recent Coen Brothers film of True Grit, desperately trying to make out what on earth Jeff Bridges was mumbling about, and not succeeding most of the time How a man can win an Oscar for Best Actor without [...]

Patrick deWitt s The Sisters Brothers reads like a novel written by a guy under Faulker and Cormac McCarthy s influence but who dispenses, wisely, with 95% of the deep meaning and sticks with a solid, cinematic storyline instead That s a good decision Trust me.The Sisters Brothers proceeds as if the book should have a whistle heavy soundtrack for the inevitable film, with the lead roles played by up and coming actors of whom we haven t yet heard Eli and Charlie Sisters, feared killers for hire, [...]

This is a deceptively simple book The writing is simple, the chapters are short, on the surface of it the story itself is quite simple But there are ideas here that run much deeper than what you see on the surface Charlie and Eli Sisters are killers, so famous that simply stating their names makes people shake with fear Charlie is brash and ruthless Eli, who narrates their tale, is introspective and soft hearted He s been drawn into this life by his feelings of loyalty and protectiveness towards [...]

De Witt s offering for the Man Booker 2011 nominations I ve now read nearly all the nominations and am convinced he should have won This book was placed against Snowdrops, Jamrach s Menagerie, Half Blood Blues, The Sense of an Endingand Pigeon English The prize went to Barnes for his not the Turning of the Screw The Sense of an Ending It s very difficult to directly compare and contrast such a widely varied set of novels and then pick the best a bit like arguing which is best, legs or arms Obvio [...]

Coen Brothers film alert Coen Brothers film alert Or Wes Anderson Or Quintin Tarantino.Actually I see on that the film will come out in 2018, directed by Jacques Audiard Jake Gyllenhaal will portray Warm great casting , Joaquin Phoenix as Charlie and John C Reilly as Eli GREAT casting So what s all the fuss about Patrick deWitt s 2011 novel pays playful homage to the literary western in this delicious dark comedy.Infamous western hitmen Charlie and Eli Sisters are on their latest assignment from [...]

I m an only child It s true I m not bragging, even though the likes of me have inspired policy makers in China to decide there need to be of the likes of me and less of those brothers and sisters types, and who am I to disagree with Chinese policy makers No, but seriously, just trying to show it s not all bad, growing up without brothers or sisters However, I m not going to go into detail on all the benefits of being an only child, that will be for some other time Let s just say that I ve alway [...]

Description Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die The enigmatic and powerful man known only as the Commodore has ordered it, and his henchmen, Eli and Charlie Sisters, will make sure of it Though Eli doesn t share his brother s appetite for whiskey and killing, he s never known anything else But their prey isn t an easy mark, and on the road from Oregon City to Warm s gold mining claim outside Sacramento, Eli begins to question what he does for a living and whom he does it for.Opening OREGON CITY, [...]

Great read, I love it

Masterful storytelling highlights this deceptively simple tale of the Sisters brothers, two lowly paid assassins on their way to commit murder and collect their wages While Eli yearns for a different life and serves as the conscience of the duo, Charlie is the trigger finger He is violent, remorseless and prone to destructive habits I ve read very few westerns This one puts me in mind of Pete Dexter s Deadwood Gritty and realistic you can smell the mud and blood.It s sometimes hard to tell the g [...]

I get the McCarthy comparisons, but this book has an additional disturbing Kill Bill element, with a totally unique narrator who makes the story his own I guess the cowboy noir description is pretty apt The Sisters Brothers are some badass fabled assassins, but Sister Brother 2 Eli is no hot and gritty cowboy a la Daniel Craig rather he is the pudgy sidekick with a conscience who lends his melancholy, earthy poetic voice to the tale The writing is terse, and the characters are compellingly flawe [...]


I m not a fan of the western Lonesome Dove excepted , so I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really liked this book It has a very Coen Brothers Tarantino feel to it, with it s odd characters and dark humor Like quite a few of the Coen Brothers rural characters, some of these cowboys pioneers displayed surprisingly well developed vocabularies, which I find delightful and entertaining Set during the Gold Rush in California, I thought it really captured the atmosphere of that time or what I [...]


Why do I relish this reversal to animal I began exhaling hotly through my nostrils, whereas Charlie was quiet and calm, and he made a gesture that I should also be quiet He was used to corralling me like this, winding me up and corralling me into battle Shame, I thought Shame and blood and degradation The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt is the kind of black comedy philosophical western that the Coen brothers would collaborate on, i.e No Country for Old Men, Fargo, or True Grit Fans of those m [...]
