    Oh Louis L amourI used to always make fun of people that read Louis L amour, but now I very proudly admit that I belong to that club They are just fun, pure and simple fun The writing is quick and the stories perfectly western I suppose it s not that surprising that I like Louis L amour, growing up with John Wayne had me primed and ready to fall in love with western reading This book was a little different then the others I ve read I it was set in present times which, for L amour, was the sixties While it still has a western feel, I kind of missed the flat out cowboy business There is nothing distinguishing about the story, it is what is a classic Louis L amour Short, fun, to the point and full of rough ridin Good times.

    L Amour dedicated this book to Alan Ladd and Ladd s best friend William Bendix It was published a couple years after they both died, and I really felt while reading this that I could see and hear Alan Ladd as the main character Bendix was a little harder to pinpoint, mostly because I haven t studied him like I have Ladd He actually would have worked well in multiple roles here I know that when Alan Ladd starred in Guns of the Timberland 1960 , which was based on one of L Amour s books, the two of the became friends Ladd owned a ranch, so I assume they found some common ground based on that, if nothing else The official Louis L Amour website has a very nice autographed picture that Ladd gave L Amour On it, he wrote To Louis Write another one I am with you Alan I think that, in a way, L Amour honored that request by writing this book dedicated to Ladd.All that made reading this book a very poignant experience, but it s such a thrilling book that I didn t have a lot of time for pensively staring into the middle distance every few pages the way I might have otherwise Alan Ladd is second only to John Wayne in my personal pantheon of favorite actors The Broken Gun is unlike any other L Amour book I ve ever read in one major way it s set in the middle of the 20th century In fact, it takes place in the late 60s, when it was written and published And it almost feels like a hardboiled mystery, the kind that inspired the noir movies Alan Ladd rose to fame with.

    I see a well illustrated old west themed cover to a Louis L Amour book, the title The Broken Gun and I plunge into a novel that instantly confuses me It takes a few pages to realize when in time this novel falls There is no mention of it There is a mention of 90 years beforebut, before what By the third page the Korean War is mentioned.Involving stroytelling, time should be established in some way off the top if a story about different time periods is being unraveled Instead L Amour leaves the reader at drift trying to figure out what s going on Making the early part of the book worse is L Amour s poor approach to literally illustrating an urban setting.Once the novel goes out to ranch lands of sand and rock, L Amour hits his stride in describing the setting But, time gets away from him again L Amour clearly had trouble with writing about his present.A number of things bother me about the writing of this book One involved an over long chase near the end Another was one sentence involving a character that vanishes Though clearly not the intent, the line is surreal than consistent with the rhythm of the story.The story is shakey, at best, and the conclusion over obvious Bottom line I don t recommend this book 4 out of ten.

    Sometimes you really need to see the good guys win The action in this book is fast paced, tough, and smart Yes, parts of it are probably beyond belief It was fun anyway.

    The book that i decided to read is The Broken Gun by Louis L Amour The setting of this book is in the United States during the late 60 s The main characters in this book are the Toomey brothers and Dan Sheridan I found this book because of a friend of mine that said that Louis books are good ones The main conflict in this book is that Dan Sheridan is being chased by killers after trying to solve a century long mystery of bunch of people being killed Dans main role is trying to do detective work and figure out the who done the killing of the cattlemen I think that the books ending was very confusing The whole book was kind of confusing because there is like two different perspectives in it My favorite part of the book is when Dan Sheridan is being chased and somehow he manages to make a very sneaky escape out of almost certain death My personal opinion of this book is that it was not as good as i thought it would be Other similar books are those of Louis L Amour and other western books I think that people who like action books and also wester book would find this one a good book.

    This is much different from most of the stories written by Louis L Amour It is based on a modern day adventure, a writer buys a Colt dragon pistol from the 1861 period that is broken from an antique dealer Inside the barrel are the pages of a journal telling the cattle drive from Texas to New Mexico, their settlement their and death at the hands of the men working for them In writing about the story, he becomes involved in investigating recent deaths, and his own attempted murder.
