  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 12/14/2013

    " I found the main character whiny and the tale itself to be very choppy. It seemed as though she wrote three stories and threw them together. There were compellng parts, but not worth the time I spent reading it altogether. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia Scharff | 9/28/2013

    " My favorite novel of 2007. A rollicking, funny, serious sprawling American epic.. Fantastic characters, tight pacing, elegant rendering of times and places. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerrilynn | 2/16/2013

    " I loved this book. Easy to read, the story flows nicely. The main character developes a sense of who he is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 1/25/2013

    " Entertaining story about the trials and adventures of a young man sent west to regain his health. It's a good story and I bet Spring Warren's next one will be even better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc Delingat | 8/2/2012

    " Turpentine was a very refreshing read. The language took me back to the images of the Deadwood TV series. This book is a wester, pioneer story, love story, drama, and just plain fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 7/22/2012

    " I did not like the main character at first - much too wimpy and effeminate to be the hero in a Western - but he grew on me as the story progressed. I liked the story overall - an easy read, and entertaining. "

    " It's classififed as a western, mostly because of the era, but that's about it. Wasn't an awful read, but it wasn't something I'd suggest either. "
