The Sisters Brothers

When I first heard of this book, I really wasn’t too keen to read it. It just didn’t seem like my cup of tea. But after continually seeing it on reading lists, I decided to give it a go.

Charlie and Eli Sisters are henchmen that are good at their job. Charlie enjoys killing and Eli has a wild temper that, when unleashed, gets the job done. Hired by The Commodore, they are sent out to California to kill a man and get a “formula”. The journey is told from Eli’s point of view and as they travel and meet new people, Eli starts to wonder if this is the life he wants for himself and whether this is the person he wants to be.

This book took me a while to read but it was enjoyable. Eli is a very likeable character and the way his views of the world changes is interesting to read. The way the events and the fighting scenes were told was so matter-of-fact that it was comical. However, that worked out well in this book. All in all, it was a good read. It was a change from my usual style and a welcome one at that. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a light and easy read!

Happy reading ~
