The Night I Walked Off of Boot Hill by Briana Vedsted

I recently finished reading The Night I Walked Off of Boot Hill by Briana Vedsted.  Here is my Amazon review:

Barbados Tom is an interesting character and not because his memory is hazy and he is trying to figure out if he’s alive or dead. He is written in a way where I didn’t hate him or like him, but I kept reading to find out where his story led. The best word I can use for him is ‘human’ because he was written with a wide range of emotions and thoughts. His inner dialogue is what moves the story along as he comments on his situation, his past, and everything around him. As I read, I really did feel like he was struggling to become a different man than what he was before he woke up on Boot Hill.

The first-person perspective through Tom’s eyes does make it difficult to get a full understanding of the other characters. For a while, I wasn’t sure what Jim’s age or true demeanor was, which did add to the mystery of Tom’s situation. There was always something off with Jim that I could never put my finger on.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a quick, relaxing read that focuses on character growth and inner struggles.
