None of the books I was planning to read today were keeping my attention so I picked up this one and was 50 pages in in what seemed like a second. Two hired killer brothers are tracking down their next target but one of them is rethinking his choice of profession. I love a good western and was instantly smitten with Eli‘s narration. I need to seek out the movie next.

BookNAround The book was amazing. The movie was terrible! 2mo
Jas16 @BookNAround oh no! That is so disappointing! 2mo
BookNAround @jas16 I know! I went to see it with a friend who also loved the book and we walked out of the movie so baffled and disappointed by how they destroyed/ignored everything that made the book work. 2mo
jillrhudy I thought this was FABULOUS. Best book I've read all year so far. 2mo

The Sisters Brothers were famous headhunters in the Oregon/California area. The book follows Eli and Charlie as they hunt down Hermann Warm. Warm is a chemist and pioneer during the California gold rush. The story contained action, comedy, and heartbreak with a satisfying ending. I would highly recommend it to anybody looking for an exciting Western. 🔫🕵

Rachel.Rencher This one sounds really good 🤓 3mo

Pickpick

This is no John Wayne western. Cowboy noir has arrived. DeWitt is able to create sympathy for dim bulb Eli and hair-raising horror for too wily for his own good Charlie in this picaresque/psycho-drama destined to become a cult classic.. Eli Sisters is a cross between Forrest Gump and a questioning Socrates on horseback, Smith and Wesson at his side, a seemingly simple-minded anti-hero who leads an examined life.

Not your John Wayne western. A new genre. I call it “western noir.“

Somebody explain. I don't like violence or Westerns or psychos or killing sprees or hired guns or the #GoldRush but I love this book. I took it up because other Littens liked it and I like two of the author's other books pretty well, “Final Exit“ especially. Charlie and Eli have me m-e-s-m-e-r-i-z-e-d. I can't put it down and I can't figure it out. It could not be less “me.“ Why oh why? #western #blackhumor

mcctrish I feel the same way about this book 4mo
Aimeesue Clearly the clever double image cover has you mesmerized. 4mo

4mo
jillrhudy @Aimeesue It's a great cover. Highly stylized. There are two kinds of popular covers now, the super stark with iconography, and the kind with flowers, hair, parts of animals, vines, and so forth woven through the text of the title--which I don't care for AT ALL. Anything that impedes readability is not a librarian's favorite thing. You can't assume great eyesight on the part of the public. 4mo

Western but not spaghetti, some strange merge of genres, that at first I did not know what to make of. I still don't, but I liked it, and think a lot of people ought to read it.

Mehso-so

A solid “meh”. I didn‘t hate it nor did I absolutely love it. It was a quick read and I found myself reading 50 pages at a time without even realizing it. I‘d say 3.5 stars out of 5; worth reading if you can borrow a copy but not worth buying (or paying over $0.50, which is how much I paid LOL)

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Gonna watch the movie? 6mo
MaggieCarr I about lost my stomach at the horse's eye + spoon section. Totally agree with your review. 6mo
Aims42 @TobeyTheScavengerMonk I'm not sure yet. I rarely like movies made from books, but since I didn't love this book to begin with, maybe I would enjoy the movie....? Jury's still out LOL 6mo

I'm late to the #MayMadness game, but purely by coincidence I started today's #BooktoMovie challenge and decided to participate. I've been itching to see this movie since I heard it was being adapted, but I'm only now getting to it. It's one of my top 10 favorite books and the casting for the brothers are literally who I had pictured them as when I read it first all those years ago.

I've read this twice and loved it both times. Eli makes a strangely charming narrator, and there is a good deal of wry humour. I'd recommend it if you liked the Coen brothers' version of True Grit or that kind of humour.

rabbitprincess @BiblioLitten French Exit is also on my list! And I have Undermajordomo Minor as well (not yet read). @Dragon 😊 @LeahBergen It is! I was amazed at how little I remembered of the second half, though. Maybe I was so traumatized by the eye injury that everything after it was forgotten. 6mo

Nobody could have been more surprised than me to discover I was going to struggle mightily with this writing style. Right from the start words like wooden, blank, monotonous and yes pocourante crossed my mind. I tried to engage but frankly the entire enterprise bored me silly, minus a few grimly memorable acts of violence and bad luck.
Some kind of point beyond an arch subversion of the Western myth would also have been welcome.

A dark comedy western about two brother killers around the gold rush.

I enjoyed the book and I loved Eli and I grew to love charlie even if he's not so likeable at first.

I think the setting was my favourite part. I love that era of America

Never read a western themed book so was wary despite reviews. This book is superb. It is light and humorous but dark undercurrents that are kafkaesque as they travel to San Fran (v v apocalypse now). It is surprisingly touching and poignant without being saccharine. Wonderfully developed characters and great dialogue amongst them. Such imagination and I am so grateful to a friend for the copy. A Great read overall

Eli Sister is one if the infamous Sisters brothers, hitmen. On horsebacks on their way from Oregon to gold digging California, this may seem a cliché western novel, but it‘s so much more. Eli is the softer of the brothers and he is a fantastic narrator, who thinks of life, the world around him and his role in it. A great read, funny and sad.

Didn't have the read-iest of years #in2018, but it was better than 2017. Let's see... The thing I regret not doing the most out of these is not having attended a book festival. I gave up on Lady Chatterley's Lover. I bought from #bloomsburybooks in downtown Ashland OR. I read a few classics, reread Harry Potter like I always do, and bought a #Pantheon edition of Russian Fairy Tales because of its cover.

So here is my story for today. I have a brother, no other relatives. My brother is recovering from an addiction and we live several states apart. He used to love reading. I told him I wanted to start a Sister/Brother book club and I would send him the kindle books and we would buddy read. This is our first book and he loved it. We are now reading Buttermilk Graffiti and he is reading faster than me. He has rediscovered this love. 💖👊📚Powerful

Not as comic or violent as it has often been described, but it is balanced tale of a pair of hired killers , Eli and Charlie Sisters. It‘s a story of a journey the brothers take both literally, to California during the gold rush, and figuratively, to find out how they want to live their lives in a cruel world.
