The Reading Update

I finally finished Larry McMurtry's The Streets of Laredo, the final volume in the Lonesome Dove saga (though the second one written).  It's a grim, harsh story that doesn't so much end as stops.  Much of it feels like linked character studies rather than a coherent narrative, but McMurtry still pulls a good story out of it.  But it is grim. And harsh.

I also went back and re-read Raymond Feist's Magician: Apprentice, one of my "comfort food" reads from my youth.  It still holds up fairly well, but I find a lot of the things that impressed me nearly thirty years ago now seem kind of precious.
