I was so happy to see another book written with this character in it!! I also never knew there are so many ways to describe a texas sunrise and sunset!! his writing is magical to read its so good. I will agree that 600 some pages was a bit long, but all the plot points ended nicely tied up. Even so, I could not put this lengthy book down til I had finished it!

I am a big fan of James Lee Burke's writing - beautiful, descriptive, introspective - and always feel his books are too short, leaving me wanting more. That is not the case with Rain Gods. While the writing is as terrific as ever, it's like eating too much dessert - just too much of everything - too long, too descriptive, too introspective. The story is compelling and the characters fully developed, but the book has more meaningful looks and silences that "speak for themselves" than a spaghetti western. The book is a satisfying read and is wonderfully performed, as always, by the terrific Will Patton who always brings the characters to life, but I beleive this is a rare occasion when I would have preferred the abridged version.
