Book Review – The West Texas Pilgrimage by M. M Wotlthoff…

Hunter’s friend Ty survived war in the Middle East only to succumb to cancer at home. On a quest with his college buddies and Ty’s father, Hunter journeys from South Texas into the mountains and desert of West Texas to bury his close friend. During this trek, they’ll drink, hunt, party, and encounter unexpected people and enthralling landscapes as Hunter deals with his grief, compounded by his struggle with depression and obsessive–compulsive disorder.
I was given an ARC by Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Oh dear. I just couldn’t grow to like this book no matter how hard I tried. It felt so turgid at times it was like swimming through mud.
It more like a drunken boy fest than a serious story at time which just spoiled the underlying concept which could have been so much more.
I am profoundly grateful to Netgalley and the Greenleaf Book Group for my copy of this book.
A two out of five star read.
