Lots of different things were happening to keep me engaged. Not that it got bad, it was just as if I was racing my horse down a good quality trail and then it suddenly started to pour rain and the path quickly became a sticky quagmire that required some extra effort to push through.
I would have liked to see it end at the same pace that it had begun. My favorite element of the story was the character building of the Sisters Brothers.
Each of them unique in their own way, but together, a force to be reckoned with. Eli: attempting to lose weight to impress the ladies and interested in new-fangled technology like tooth brushing.
Charlie the more ruthless and deadlier of the two — trying to maintain his badassness while dealing with alcoholism and the misadventures of his not quite so focused brother.
But, again, their reputation precedes them and, while we as the reader see the true, intricate nature of the brothers, when they walk into a bar and people find out that these are the infamous Sisters Brothers, the temperature drops, and people start diving behind the bar and out the window!
If you like westerns, give this one a try. While it has shades of other westerns I have read, it is definitely unique.

I had told him I was in a western frame of mind and to pick me up something published rather recently. Like what, Townes had said. I did not go inside with Townes because there was a cute South African librarian working there and I wasn't happy about my looks at the moment.
Townes came back with four I was sitting in my car outside the Mission Viejo Public Library waiting for my friend Townes to come out with some books.
Townes came back with four books. These books were The Sisters Brothers for me and some Russian novelists for him. Townes was critical of my choice being such a slim volume, associating page length with shallowness.
But having finished two Larry McMurtry epics, I was ready for a terse, exciting western. Not exciting as in stagecoach chases and such, but exciting in terms of storytelling or perhaps writing.
I was recently surprised by how much I enjoyed Cormac McCarthy. Now if you've read two paragraphs of this book report, are wondering where any of this is going, but still reading anyway, then The Sisters Brothers might be the book for you.
It is a western about two brothers who are hired killers. There is Charlie, who's been put in charge on a job to kill a miner run afoul with their powerful employer, the Commodore.
Then there's Eli, who narrates the story. Like me, Eli is a romantic who doesn't know how to get to the point. Eli tells about encountering people on the trail.
Charlie drinks a lot and is apt to shoot anyone who gives him what he thinks is a good reason. He also condescends to his brother.
A lot. I would say Charlie is psychotic, but that Eli is idiotic. For one, he tells and tells and tells a story that goes nowhere.
Kind of like this book report. Second, Eli rides with his brother despite being treated so poorly. Third, he stands around while Charlie boozes and mistreats people.
This is how Patrick deWitt writes the first 97 pages. Oh, the fans might say, you shouldn't have quit because the book gets really good later on.
This sounds like something Eli might say. In other words, idiotic. I have no time to give a new author pages plus to grab me, not when I have Terms of Endearment on the shelf.

Great read, I love it View all 3 comments. I am so not the target audience for this story. And I thoroughly enjoyed it, from the get go.
Charlie Sisters has the lead here, but it is Eli that will take you there. And tell you all about his horse, poor Tub, and the women he meets along the way.

How he feels; what he wants; how he sees things, love and some alarmingly, gruesome grub. It is all about the journey. I loved his voice; his simple, sardonic; hard, yet warm hearted slant.

What the Same thing if you look for nice characters to bond with. Hey, they had a tough childhood. R What the It IS bent, but it's also fun, a rip-roaring yarn with prospectors, gun fights, whores and drunks.
Such an amiable fellow almost a shame to kill him. A remorseful killer with a philosophical streak "here is another miserable mental image I will have to catalog and make room for" and the heart of a poet.
He consorts with whores "I knew in my heart it was false, and afterward always felt remote and caved in. I guess I understood where he was going with it.

Most people are dirt poor and lots of them headed west to try and make their fortune, but ended up starving to death, getting murdered, or died by some other sickness or disease.
Everyone smelled and brushing your teeth was only on the fringe of becoming trendy. You had one outfit you wore until it fell apart. Horse meat and pork fat was pretty much the main staples of your diet.
Doctors gave out bottles of morphine for "brandy sickness. Charlie and Eli Sisters are famous outlaws, known for killing.
People fear them. They work for some bad-ass named the Commodore. When he got mad at someone, he sent the Sisters Brothers to "get rid of them.
The thing about Charlie and Eli is that you wondered how they made it so far and for so long. This was what Charlie the older brother was usually doing: He didn't seem very smart, but he was still deadly and every once in awhile, he'd surprise you.
Eli, the younger brother, was the more sensitive and poignant one. Yet he was usually very apathetic and just went along with what Charlie did.
There are a lot of funny lines and situations in this story. Some crazy over-the-top stuff happens. But it's also kind of a meandering story.
It's a western comedy road trip by horse adventure. But there are serious moments as well. I kind of expected an ending with more action. But it was still satisfying.
I loved Eli's horse, Tub. Man, that horse went through a lot. Charlie and Eli have a complicated relationship. They're bound together by family and also just because they don't really know anything else.
Sometimes they hurt each other, but they are also loyal. It's dysfunctional, but it changes as the story progresses. Overall, I really liked this.
It was an easy read and not something I'd normally pick. It was a good "palate cleanser" or good in-between book.
I definitely recommend it! One thing I didn't really get or understand was the "Intermissions? Also, the part with the gypsy witch.
That didn't seem to go anywhere view spoiler [the supposed curse she placed on the door? Nothing ever came of it.
View all 8 comments. Jan 29, Michelle rated it really liked it Recommended to Michelle by: Beverly. I'm not generally a fan of Westerns but I do like different and quirky, and "The Sisters Brothers" is both.
The story basically follows the Sisters brothers to California where they hope to kill a couple of guys and steal a formula for their boss, the Commodore.
One brother, Charlie, seems to have no conscience while the other brother, Eli, has quite a bit of reservation about what they do. These men have very hard edges and do as they please.
At first, nothing the brothers do or encounter is particularly unusual for the time and place: starving children in the woods, men driven insane by solitude, noisy whorehouses and dirty saloons.
But Patrick deWitt keeps these brief chapters cantering along from one tense fix to another as the brothers slaughter, drink and sleep their way south.
There is a lighthearted exasperation in his words. Despite being not entirely quick, Eli's voice makes reading the book a treat. It's smooth and seamless, shot through with dark humor, pared and antique without being overdone.
What gets described, instead, are bodily woes: Charlie's worse hangovers include lots of vomiting; Eli has injuries that bleed and swell view spoiler [; and the decline of Tub, Eli's horse, after getting swatted by a grizzly is, in the end, grisly hide spoiler ].
There is something very human in all this blood and guts, in their grim and gross and comic physicality.
This humanness, with the humanness that Eli is growing into, give the novel warmth and depth. This is not a book full of building climax and resolution, but rather a steady path with a justified resolution.
The complicated story of two brothers who are so different from each other, but still brothers in the end, is a story we can all relate to on some level.

It seems we can just keep going along and letting chance lead us or stop and go our own way. Hired guns, the brothers Eli and Charlie Sisters, have gotten stuck in a groove working for a right basterd, called the Commodore.
They usually don't know why he wants them to kill someone, they just mindlessly do it. All that changes this go around when the younger brother Eli questions why.
Darkly funny and heart wr Oh, dear! Darkly funny and heart wrenching by turns, The Sisters Brothers is a witty, fun western which brought tears to my eyes.
View all 24 comments. The Western is dead. Yeah, I'm happy too, because I love stories about the bloody history of the not-so-new world.
As much as I love the great Western classics, their time is up. The Western has carried a lot of negative shit in its saddle-bags, shit that needs to be buried with it.
It started selling myths as political propa A-yep. It started selling myths as political propaganda, and things got twisted up and confused.
The Western and The Duke became symbols of an old, outmoded way of thinking: it was the world-view of fat, old, cigar-chomping, far-right assholes, as far as the younger generation was concerned; and the Western has never really been cool since then, with a few notable exceptions.
But the real West is full up with fascinating stories to tell, some compelling history for novelists to dance around as they make shit up.
So the death of the Western, making way for new visions of the old West, and rejoining Historical Fiction Newer entries, like Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' and 'The Hateful Eight' are thrilling attempts at simultaneous homage and deconstruction.
Western deconstruction, satire, genre mash-up Larry McMurtry comes closest to embracing the tropes of the 'western' genre, but only for the sake of subverting reader expectations.
The frontier was not settled by singing cowboys. The 'New World' was a brutal, vicious battleground, where every random encounter between strangers would very likely end violently.
Like the latter, DeWitt's book is a story about brothers who are born killers made for a bloody world; like the former, it has a darkly comedic intelligence.
As a Canadian myself, I felt bad about NOT feeling bad about the lack of native literary fiber in my pulp-heavy diet. Ondaatje, yes. Atwood, sure.
Which means that I'm confessing to being a bad Canadian. I feel like Dewitt has finally crafted Canlit that doesn't feel like a homework assignment.
If the point of using Hugh-fucking-McLennan and Margaret-fucking-Lawrence was to scare kids away from Canlit forever - brilliant. They could also have value as practical demonstrations of Relativity: narrative black holes clearly distorting space-time; when you manage to break free of the oppressive gravitational pull, hours have passed It's probably true that those wacky kids would hate any book they're forced to read.
Unless teenagers completely suck. I'm willing to consider that possibility. Eli is the narrator of the tale, and he often defers to his brother.
Eli has a soft streak that Charlie doesn't seem to possess, showing a sympathy and occasional empathy that is totally inappropriate for a hired gun.
Charlie is a very different person - lean and quick and calculating, with a violent temper that often affects his trigger finger Something like that.
The story opens in Oregon City, as the Sisters brothers set out on orders to murder a prospector named Hermann Kermit Warm, whom the Commodore has denounced simply as a thief.
Their journey to San Francisco is an eventful one, and Charlie begins to express anger with The Commodore, and dissatisfaction with their arrangement.
Upon arriving in the city, they track down a friend of Warm's, who reveals some very interesting details concerning the German prospector's partnership and subsequent falling-out with The Commodore.
It involves a method of finding and extracting gold from riverbeds, based on a chemical of Warm's devising. He absconded with his work and secrets when he realized that his partner would certainly kill him once the formula was done.
Eli and Charlie now must decide between loyalty to their employer, and a chance to get rich by betraying him. The dynamic between Eli and Charlie provides one of the more memorable fictional relationships I've come across in recent years.
This is one of my new favorites, and it feels super patriotic to say that Patrick DeWitt is one of my favorite authors.
He's helping to save fiction in Canada, with a story that cleverly avoids being Canadian in any way. We don't need books about elderly women living in Moosefuck Alberta, we just need great stories told with style and passion.
If someone says that Canadian Literature doesn't need saving - smite them with a righteous vengeance Reilly carries the film, with a performance that's elegantly caught between Eli's loyalty and his desire to be free of his crazy kinsman.
Paul Byrnes. Adam Graham. Daring itself to be different and welcomed by some outstanding performances from its four leads, it's not destined to change the world, but you won't regret watching it either.
Kelechi Ehenulo. Audiard gives the whole movie a very bizarre feel, crafting a western that feels at once a part of the genre and something entirely different.
Tom Beasley. By sprinkling a variance of ideas and emotions across a plane far and wide, [Audiard] ends up with a film of ambition and patience that works more often than it doesn't.
Matt Cipolla. For a movie clocking in at a shade over two hours, The Sisters Brothers drags too long before giving a reason to care about the characters' repetitive struggles.
Alex Hudson. Audiard, in his first English-speaking film, runs a western that stands out, almost always, using the genre's parameters with measure.
Yasser Medina. An uneven tone robs the film of a bit of momentum and coherence, but the lead performances and Audiard's proven visual skill mean it never falls out of the saddle.
