review To Tame a LandWow this was a good
Uniue And I m at a loss as to how to critiue it It was very well crafted yet while I was reading it and that fantastical ending it was extremely hard to npack all of the subtle moral dilemmas But once I did after finishing the book tears did briefly come to my eyesSetting The wild ntamed West The story begins in Indian Country probably soon after the time of the Civil War when Ryan Tyler is twelve years old The first date mentioned is 1872 in chapter 8 About ten years pass during the story and the various geographies include Texas Colorado New Orleans Alta in Utah and Kansas City In Short Rye Gets Around City In short Rye gets around sentence reads Washington Oregon Idaho Montana Wyoming and down to Colorado The wild West setting is established well hardly surprising considering L Amour s reputation There are mentions of Indians eg Comanches and Osages guns Winchester Joslyn Shawk McLanahan and Smith Wesson to name a few horses rocks and desert What s funny is that in the midst of this rugged wild setting Rye is reading Plutarch I loved itCharacters Each character s personality isn t the most obvious due to the writing style But they all have a certain depth so that they are all three dimensional Rye of course is the best his duty to justice and law his hesitance to kill combined with his resolute commitment to do what s right The only estion regarding him a teenagertwenty something year old is from where he got this strong and nwavering sense of morality I assume he was raised well by his pap and also that Logan Pollard instilled some of it although all of it I m not sure but although Rye clearly learns about how to se a gun I don t see much about learning about when to Children of the New World use one Doesn t seem like a big problem sure but thatestion kind of comes to the surface during the climaxThe other thing I love about Rye was his intention toward Liza view spoilerHe likes her romantically sure although that isn t detailed much but above all he wants what s best for her I got the impression that if Liza wanted to stay with Pollard he would have let her stay And I respect that so much particularly after reading romances where people are convinced that true love necessarily euals person 1 marrying person 2 hide spoiler It is all very well for those who live in the East to talk of peaceful means or for those who live in the later gentler years but we were men with the bark on and we were opening The Oswald Reflection up raw new country mustang country bronco countryncurried nbroken and fierce Because of the guns I wore women walked along our streets no.

Quantum (Captain Chase uniue style He believes insing as few words as possible and drawing everything in the barest of outlines and yet somehow what he writes is evocative than almost anything I ve ever read It s like a haiku it says so much with so little I WANT TO WRITE LIKE THIS SOMEDAY Seriously He inspires me Also The foreshadowing man That really really stood out to me this time around Not only is the climax absolutely flawless but the subtle way L Amour foreshadows the events of the climax literally from the first chapters just kills me And no I will not spoil it for you Read the book I m not kidding Read this
and weep over its awesomeness Honest I p a few times Original review 2016 This was the first L Amour novel I d ever read although I d read a fair bit of Zane Grey and Frank H Spearman and I was absolutely stunned by the ality of the storytelling here It s brilliant This book belongs not just in the Great Western Novel category but in the Great Novel category Period It draws you in on the very first page and doesn t let go ntil the last Novel category Period It draws you in on the very first page and doesn t let go ntil the last And yet it manages to do so WITHOUT Children of Blood and Bone using excessively graphic or sultry descriptions just for the sake of holding your attention The writing isiet restrained and careful and yet thrilling at the same time The characters are beautifully drawn realistic flawed but still appealing Long story short it s a great book and if you like Westerns AT ALL you need to give this one a tr.
