I told myself a number of years ago that I would never read a western. I just never found them interesting. However, a guy at work told me to read the first 30 pages of Lonesome Dove and you won't be able to put it down.
Well, he was right. I just finished all 900 something pages of it. I remember that there was a mini-series made about it back in the 80s but I have never seen it. I think I might try to go pick it up now. The book was that good.
