The latest novel from Pulitzer Prize winner Larry McMurtry is nonstop fun. Reader C.J. Critt clearly loves the story, and her joy reading it shines through in every word. The story follows two lifelong friends, Maggie and Connie, on a road trip from California, where they dub voices for movies, to Texas. Along the way the colorful women encounter a zany cast of characters and confront some of life's most difficult issues. The fun for Critt never ends. While she brings personality to the lead characters, Critt is also marvelous with the many supporting characters, whose personality quirks she highlights with alacrity. Perhaps the most memorable is Aunt Cooney, Connie's octogenarian aunt, a Texas chicken farmer whose indomitable spirit Critt captures superbly.
