The Broken Gun 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, t 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 le 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 issurreal 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 This was my first L Amour novel I ve ever read I know, I m starting to read them a little later in my life I was pleasantly surprised that this was a mystery thriller I m now hooked. Loved this was written and published in the 1960 s and takes place then A story within a story. 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. One might always think of Louis L Amour as just a cowboy western writer He shows that he is muchin the Broken Gun My interest is is that area that He wrote about still desulit or has mordern society moved in.Old stories still circulate and drive people to do crazy things. 33rd book read in 2016.Number 360 out of 526 on my all time book list Review Pending This story is set in modern time I prefer his stories in the past.
