Girl Waits With Gun
Amy Stewart (2015)
I quit midway through when I realized I just wasn’t having any fun reading this lackluster bit of historical fiction. It was neither “hilarious” nor a “romp” as promised on the cover–the artwork of which is the best thing I can recommend about this book.
The prose is serviceable but lackluster with creaky dialog and a story on par with a sub-par episode of PBS’s Mystery. After 120 pages, it was time to move on to something more interesting and worth my time.
