(3) Base Camp

Lonesome Dove is a marathon, not a sprint. But it's not one of those Barklay Marathons that only 14 out of 1000 runners have ever finished. Lonesome Dove is more like a really long leisurely stroll. Word choice is simple. The pace is fast. It's like taking a long walk over flat ground, and there are even some of those airport conveyor belts along the way helping you along. It's a huge, weighty book, but the biggest difficulty might be that your arms will get tired holding it.
