Criticisms And Witticisms

Well, Floyd and I did it again, this time discussing The Hangover. Go read it, you movie lovers!

* * *

And while I'm recycling material, here's a brief exchange shared among friends after viewing this book summary:
...a lab experiment goes terribly wrong. After Deanna agrees to help a friend with a time travel project, she winds up in the desert.

Bewildered, she makes her way to a boomtown that looks eerily like a movie set. As Deanna tries to figure out what happened and exactly where she is, she discovers that somehow she’s been transported to Tombstone, Arizona Territory, and the year is 1881.

Deanna becomes acquainted with the most famous names of the day: Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the Clanton Brothers. Tombstone was at the heart of a quickly growing territory that had more criminals than law and order. The cemetery at Boot Hill became a popular resting spot, and on October 26 of that year, the most famous fight in the West took place, the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

Nothing Deanna had ever heard about Tombstone could have prepared her for life in the Wild West, but she finds comfort in the arms of Wyatt Earp’s younger brother, Morgan.
dn: It’s hard to pick a favorite sentence out of that summary...

Serpentine: Wow. It's all pretty great, and I didn't quite know what to make of it. But then I found comfort in the arms of Wyatt Earp's younger brother, Morgan.

Floyd: So it's basically Tombstone fan fiction? I could get into that (even though that movie is terrible). In fact, I think we should all write our own Tombstone fan fiction short stories.

dn: It’s hard to tell if it’s Tombstone fan fiction or a Back to the Future Part 3 reboot.
