I pick this up only because I'm a Mc Murtry fan. I was rewarded with an enjoyable "historical" novel, with the character development, and humor typical of the author. You will not find graphic violence, but an interesting study in human nature. Enjoy.
I wouldn't have bought book on a this subject, except for the author. Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove,(not the TV version,but the book) is one of our all time favorites.
Pretty Boy Floyd doesn't reach that level, but was surprisingly enjoyable. As always with McMurtry, character development is wonderful. The story is facinating, and not a blood and gore kind book. I think most people would enjoy it, I did.
Found this book in a dollar store about two years ago...the story sounded interesting so I picked it up, but it's always gotten pushed to the bottom of my "to be read" list so I thought I'd put it on here for anyone interested.
Alegend in his lifetime Charlie Floyd robbed his first amored car in 1925. The people he couldn't charm were the F.B.I.agents tracking him down.
A fictionalized account of Pretty Boy Floyd. A fast, interesting read about Charley Floyd. He is charming and the women love him. Enjoyable to read.
Couldn't identify with main characters and storey moved much too slowly which is unusual for McMurtry as I loved "Lonesome Dove".
Good historical story. Typically Mcmurtry
hardback book never read it . In good condition.
