The title does not do this book justice. I was so thoroughly entertained by this book. It had me laughing out loud throughout. The combination of Jeremiah James' narration and the creativity of the book have produced an audiobook that felt like I was listening to a movie. Each character was more engaging than the next. And the story in the end was so touching. I can't say enough good things about it. I can't wait for the next installment of these two unlikely friends.

I was brought up on audio dramas and westerns, therefore, I was thrilled to listen to this audiobook which has captured both genres seamlessly. Jason Huza has penned a wonderfully funny and poignant novel about the true meaning of friendship through two men who would never normally interact on account of their vast differences, but, while in the mud and grit of the Wild West, are thrown together and learn that in order to survive it only takes a lot of luck, understanding, and some good mustache wax. I found myself laughing out loud over and over again from the situational comedy and dialogue and it’s in the dialogue where Jason Huza truly excels as a writer. Each character was incredibly specific and Jeremiah James translates these characters from the page to flesh and blood superbly. I truly felt as if I was listening to an audio play as each character had his own clear voice; even women and a six year old boy were convincing and through my listen I began to forget that it was one person voicing hundreds of characters. I just fell into the action of the story.
It is definitely a testament to both the writing and acting that as the book ended I found I missed this fantastically flawed band of misfits. I’d love to hear more of “Purple” and Traxton Rhodes, but even if their story ends with this book, I’m satisfied and extremely happy that I spent 14 hours with them on their journey. I hope that Jason Huza and Jeremiah James work together on another audiobook in the future. Their partnership seems to be a natural and enjoyable pairing. I highly recommend anyone to enjoy it themselves.
