Good story, but reads more like a script instead of a novel... May 8 2006
By Johnny Ringo - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ever since I saw the movie Tombstone I have taken a fancy to the legendary gambler Doc Holliday. I was very pleased to find that Tom Barnes based his stroy more around the historical facts instead of the western myth that surrounds this interesting character. I enjoyed this book, but found the writing style to be that of a television or motion picture script. The narrative focused mostly on the verbage of the characters or the action they took part in. The times when the author took us into the characters mind and thoughts were few and not very deep when they did occur. I kept wondering when I was reading the book if the author wrote this book with hopes of later seeing it turned into a show or movie. This book also suffered from some editing errors with a few typos that should have been caught before publishing (see page 20 & 178). While this is a bit of a critical review, I would recomend this book to anyone wants to enjoy a good story and learn a little more about Mr. Holliday. This was a good story I was just hoping for something a little more...

Excellent! Feb. 2 2006
By L. McDonald - Published on
Format: Paperback
Author Tom Barnes has meticulously written this factual account of the life of Doc Holliday in such a way that you feel as though you are actually right there, experiencing all the excitement and ambience of the era in which Doc's life unfolded. Furthermore, the author provides surprising aspects which only make the story that much more interesting. A great read.

Terrific Feb. 1 2006
By MAC, Los Angeles, CA - Published on
Format: Paperback
Doc Holliday's Road To Tombstone is a page turner from beginning to end. From growing up in Griffin, becomming a Dentist his romance with Matti and his affair with the Firey Kate to the very interesting courtroom scene after the shooting.

Terrific book you will want to read it more then once.

Terrible April 20 2008
By Whit Roberts - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I got into a phase of reading Old West history and biographies. This is not only one of the worst Old West books I have read but this is probably the worst book I have ever read. Earlier I posted two negative reviews of this book but curiously Amazon.Com took them down.

This book claims to be a novel. What it really seems to be is a carelessly written, poorly researched history; I guess the logic is then to call it fiction (a novel) so it cannot be criticized as a carelessly written, poorly researched history. I believe that the book contains poor typography, poor grammar, and 'historical errors', but since it is called fiction, I guess the author is off the hook for historical or factual errors.

If you are interested in Old West history or biographies of Old West characters like Doc Holliday, do not waste money on this trash - get a book published by a university press.
