April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Shane by Jack Schaefer

Shane Shane by Jack Schaefer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I don't think I've ever read a Western before, and whether the glorification of Shane as the quintessential cowboy was intentional by the author as the story is told from the adult POV of the main character as he reminisces about Shane, or if it just came across this way to me, I feel that this is the Wild West as told thru rose-tinted glasses. Still, for my first foray in Westerns, I suppose it could have been worse.
