A couple of people have posted excerpts from Lynn Cheney's book
"Sisters" - I find her writing uninteresting, dull and cumbersome.

Is it just me?

:shrug:

Or does she need to interview several ghost writers before making her decision?

:popcorn:

2. As far as I was concerned, completely jejune. Anyone wishing...
...to read the whole monstrosity can find it here. Don't worry, it's been up there and publicized for years now.

Neither Lynne nor her publishers are going to make a peep about copyright. Believe me. ;-)

7. So I'm reading part of this
It's total garbage. Junior High calibre "historical" novel about the "west" written in an overtly Victorian style with a few $20 dollar words thrown in per page, balanced with a terribly high number of typos.

8. It sold only 200 copies total and then went out of print back in 1981
What does that tell you?

9. It tells me that's why booksellers are asking as much as a
thousand bucks a copy.
