Publisher's Summary

An almost-true story about a small town in Texas that ought to exist if it doesn’t, with characters like Sam the Lion, the delectable Jacy, and Ruth Popper, the coach’s wife. Set in a small, dusty, Texas town, The Last Picture Show introduced the characters of Jacy, Duane, and Sonny: teenagers stumbling toward adulthood, discovering the beguiling mysteries of sex and the even more baffling mysteries of love. Populated by a wonderful cast of eccentrics and animated by McMurtry's wry and raucous humor, The Last Picture Show is a wild, heartbreaking, and poignant novel that resonates with the magical passion of youth.

Not very good

I recently saw the movie of this book, and thought I would like the book. McMurtry's books have been good readers for me in the past. I thought this book slow and uninspiring. The best thing I can say is that it was depressing.

Sucked

Boring and stupid. Disappointing after listening to many McMurtry books in the past. Don't waste your time.
