Summary

Mild-mannered sheep farmer Albert Stark is fed up with the harsh life of the American frontier, where it seems everything and anything can kill you: Duels at high noon. Bar-room brawls. Poisonous snakes. Tumbleweed abrasions. Something called 'toe-foot'. Even a trip to the outhouse. Yes, there are a million ways to die in the wild, wild West, and Albert plans to avoid them all.

Some people think that makes him a coward. Albert calls it common sense. But when his girlfriend dumps him, Albert decides to fight back - even though he can't shoot, ride, or throw a punch. Fortunately, he teams up with a beautiful gunslinger who's tough enough for the both of them. Unfortunately, she's married to the biggest, meanest, most jealous badass on the frontier. Turns out Albert has just discovered a million and one ways to die in the West.

Entertaining

This audiobook was just as funny as you'd expect from Macfarlane: irreverent and sometimes crude, it brought current humour to the Wild West. It really sounded like the script of a movie, or a comedy show - as you might expect from the author - rather than containing any deeply literate prose, which was just what I wanted after a couple of heavier going books! Finished it in a few days (ps don't listen with small children around, there's not a lot of bad language, but it's often shouted!)
