Sisters Brothers is a bitter, western, yet humorous story. This book is the second work by a Canadian author to be published in 2011 and received the major Canadian Literary Awards and was nominated for the Booker Prize.

The Sisters Brothers topped almost every bestseller of the year and was and still is one of the best-selling books in the United States and Canada.

The Irish Times wrote about this novel:
How great, how funny and how sad.

The Cleveland Palin Dealer also wrote about the Sisters Brothers:

Patrick Dovit, like Tarantino, knows how to make the look of bloody adventures funny, and just like Mark Twain, he knows the reader tends to forgive the narrator’s personal flaws.

In the back cover of the book, there is a part of the novel:
“The last time I returned to the city after working in the mine for a few months, I had a big bag of gold with me. Although I knew it was crazy, I decided to have a good meal at one of the most expensive restaurants in the city.

Let me tell you – I had to pay $ 30 for a meal. “Food that if I had eaten in my own city would not have cost me more than half a dollar.”

Charlie was disgusted, “Only a mongrel pays that much.”
The man said, “I agree with you one hundred percent and I am proud to welcome you to the city of Meshngha.” “I also hope that becoming a full-fledged mongrel will be a pleasant experience.”

Summary of the Sisters Brothers
The book tells the story of two brothers, two professional assassins in the heat of gold and the pursuit of wealth.

The Sisters Brothers portrays the blackness and violence of the mid-nineteenth century well, and conveys it with bitter humor to its reader.

In this book, we encounter two brothers named Charlie and Elay. Brothers with the surname Sisters and a disgusting and terrifying reputation for their successive and successful murders.

The story begins when Charlie and Elijah are hired to kill a man named Warm, who is thought to have amassed a lot of gold.

Between the story with Charlie’s black and desolate spirit, with Elay’s cold spirit; We become acquainted with the narrator, in whose dull point of light the infinite gray of his emotions shines.
Elijah, in addition to having unparalleled cruelty, uses remarkable and wonderful love and compassion.

Although he is known as a murderer, not an ordinary murderer but a professional, he sometimes uses such sacrifices that he leaves the reader with a finger in his mouth.

Throughout the book, it is clear that Ila is not very happy with the profession they have pursued, and he speaks about it many times in different ways.

Sometimes he shows his disgust with murder by giving his booty to the person who needs it, and sometimes by expressing interest in another person’s job.

On their way, these two brothers meet interesting and different people and characters who, one by one, while making fun of you and putting a smile on your face, open their place in the corners of your thoughts for a long time, and until the days after the book is finished. , Your thoughts are called.

And behind all these thoughts you will see Elai, who was dissatisfied with her condition, Elai who at the height of her heart stone showed loves that maybe you and I would never have done in her condition.

Everyone thinks that there is definitely no such thing as a symbol of emotion in a murderer, but if you know Ila, everything is different.

Sentences from the text of the Sisters Brothers novel
Most people are chained to their fears and stupidities and do not dare to judge impartially what is the problem in their lives.

Most people continue to live their lives without satisfaction without trying to figure out where the source of their dissatisfaction comes from or want to make a difference in their lives.

They end up dying with nothing in their hearts.

“Every heart has its own voice,” the old woman told Charlie. Like a bell whose sound is different from one another.

The sound of your heart is the most annoying sound I have ever heard in my life. My ears ached from hearing it.

“As my eyes hurt from looking at your eyes.”

Mayfield stared at me for a moment, then turned to Charlie. He threw five twenty-eagle gold coins on the table and Charlie collected them with the palm of his hand.

He gave me two of them and I took them. I decided to spend the money even more ridiculously than before. I wondered what the world would be like without money on our necks and souls.
