I wondered if he could possibly maintain the momentum of the previous two books, in terms of pacing, plot, and interest. He did all that and more. By half-way through I could not put this book down. So, so good. Right to the very last page, I was spell-bound.

Thank you Ivan Doig, for some of the most engaging, thoughtful fiction I have read in ages. The three "Morrie" books were a total pleasure! ( )

This was a fun end to the Morrie Morgan series. ( )

Couldn't get into this tale of union - vs - copper bosses in 1920s Montana, centered around a pro-union newspaper.

Sounds good, I know -- that's why I swapped for it. But the narrative voice is really annoying and the characters (usually a strength for Doig) were flat and lifeless. ( )

I'm a fan of Ivan Doig and thought that Whistling Season was near a masterpiece. But Sweet Thunder doesn't measure up, despite often being quite entertaining and deftly written. The characters, the plot, the circumstances often seem slightly contrived. That said, it is a fun read, very lighthearted. ( )

Great historical fiction of Butte in the days of Anaconda Company rule. Main character is a newspaper writer specializing in Editorial views on a newspaper fighting the owned newspaper of Anaconda company and fighting for the miners. Another excellent Ivan Doig masterpiece. ( )
