Doc

Doc - Mary Doria Russell Did not finish this one. Research was good but stylistically it is all over the map. Parts sound more like biography, and parts read like the historical fiction it is, and this is within one section of one chapter. There is no sense of time. The writing style suggests that it is told fairly straight through without large gaps in time, except one event a few chapters prior you find out was actually three years before! Also the title is very deceptive, as the majority of the 200 pages I made it through are not related to Doc Holliday in the least. It is more about everyone envolved in the OK Corral shooting.
