The Sisters Brothers
Reviewed by- Andrea (2016/03/13, 11:29 AM)
I found “The Brothers Sisters” by Patrick Dewitt to be a fresh and innovative novel. As a Man Booker contender, this book was an intimate glimpse into the hard and sometimes brutal Old West of the 1850’s. Two brothers, Eli and Charlie Sisters, embark on a mission to assassinate a marked man. They encounter many difficulties as they navigate their way to the west, which highlight the distinct differences of the two brothers. I listened to this story on Audio and was hard pressed to break away from this book. It is a character driven story, with the relationship between the two brothers taking center stage. The narrator's voice is poignant which added to the experience of listening. Eli’s intonations and interpretations of events are powerful, stirring, and at times hilarious. He is a peculiar character and gets under your skin and stays there long after you’ve finished the book. His voice added a personal dimension I thoroughly enjoyed. This would make an excellent book club choice.Back.
