Book Review – Louis L’Amour – Flint

Should really get to my books I have waiting to review. I’ve read them, and now I need to review so I can get them off my desk. :p

This book doesn’t have a book jacket. It’s a hard bound with a bare cover with leather-like material. I had this book from a long time ago because my dad was a huge fan of Louis L’Amour. I know there are more of Louis L’Amour’s books around here somewhere, at least one or two paperbacks, but I haven’t been able to find them.

As for Flint, I didn’t really know what to expect. I think I was of the belief that it would be a bit boring. It’s shorter than most books written nowadays, and being so old, I doubted it would keep my interest. I was pleasantly surprised by it.

The writing is simple, the descriptions are as well. But somehow that lends an easily lost in style. I enjoyed this book. If you don’t like westerns and the more basic style writing, you may not like it, but for me, it was an enjoyable read. When I say basic writing, I mean, “he walked through the door.” Says what it describes, with no extra words. It’s like that throughout the book. I liked it. As a writer, it tells me that whether you write a lot of description or not, someone will enjoy it.
