All of a sudden it doesn't seem very appealing any more to try and read it.

I might give it a chance though, just for the hell of it.

I read about 17 chapters last night (each chapter is relatively short) and I think I've seen enough.

One of the things that bothered me is that he suggests Enniss' father had absolutely nothing to do with Earl's death, which is clearly NOT canon.

Same goes for Ennis being accused of Jack's death.

Also, Earl's last name is "Lamb".  Are you kidding?

And Rich's last name is "Sapho".  Hunh?

And LD Newsome, Sr shows up in Sage as a con man.  C'mon!

Well, that could have happened after the story/film canon.  But, yeah.

Good grief! Vern can't spell, but he's heard of Sapho? Well, I suppose it's possible.

I suspected it might be a loser when I saw Ledger Park, Hathaway Farm, etc, on the map.  Lack of imagination and originality.

Seeing the last names of Earl and Rich confirmed it - silly.

If I were to get it, it would mainly be for my collection of Brokeback stuff, but I wouldn't read it.
