Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

With Texasville, Larry McMurtry returns to the unforgettable Texas town and characters of one of his best-loved books, The Last Picture Show. This is a Texas-sized story brimming with home truths of the heart, and men and women we recognize, believe in, and care about deeply. Set in the post-oil-boom 1980s, Texasville brings us up to date with Duane, who's got an adoring dog, a sassy wife, a twelve-million-dollar debt, and a hot tub by the pool; Jacy, who's finished playing Jungla in Italian movies and who's returned to Thalia; and Sonny -- Duane's teenage rival for Jacy's affections -- who owns the car wash, the Kwik-Sackstore, and the video arcade.
One of Larry McMurtry's funniest and most touching contemporary novels.

   A bit disappointed.
The Last Picture Show was good and I watched it first. The book I read after that was pretty good. I was surprised to learn that the book was part of a trilogy. I bought this book after I found out about it. It was disappointing. The author just supervised the work of someone else who wrote the book. The book is not bad, but not as bad as the first one. I am not going to attend the third one. The book is not credible. I would read tall tales if I wanted to read bed time stories. Sorry, Larry.
   An amazing follow up to "The Last Picture Show"
One of my favorite books to read was this one. The cast characters in Texasville made the story worth it. I followed up on some of my favorite characters from The Last Picture Show and was impressed by a lot of the newer characters as well. The overall story in this book is more exciting and fast paced than in the previous book in the series, but it is a little bit longer. Larry McMurtry's style of writing keeps me interested in his characters. I also get the same feeling from Lonesome Dove. I keep coming back to read his other works. It is worth it in the end. I would recommend. ?
   McMurtry does it again. I really love every book of his that I have read
The main characters of " The Last Picture Show" and the new ones introduced in this novel were fun to catch up with. The book is very entertaining and their attitudes seem crazy to me.
There is a continuation of the characters from The LaST PICTURE SHOW. A good read if you liked the Last Picture Show.
   A Small Laugh
It makes you happy. It makes you question why you are reading it. It is a truck that goes from one edge of town to the other.
   Two down a whole bunch to go
Two down a large group to go. McMurtry books are fantastic. My face will always be Jacy for Sybil Shepherd. I graduated in 1955, and this one ended up being the next volume of the Thalia series.
   Laugh out loud, or cry!
The Last Picture Show was a hit. McMurtry can paint the reader into every scene. Even the most depressing human emotion can find a silver lining. Can't wait to read book 3
   Duane - ya gotta love him.
After reading Last Picture Show and realizing it was the first book of a trilogy, I got Texasville. His writing style and humor is fun to read and I have started his book. There could be some lessons about how people work in these books.
