Gripping

Recently I have been reading some long and complex books. I was looking for a short, simple book to read. This book fit the bill. I enjoy a good western, but new authors to the genre are hard to find. I had read several of Robert Hanlon’s books. So I decided to try book one of a new series about Jake Timber, a United States Marshall.

This was a more or less average western except I felt the author attempted to make the protagonist, Jake Timber, a super hero. In a fast draw he shoots four men lined up against him and Timber takes a bad beating then is up and after the bad men the next day. I wish the author would be realistic and not try to overdo the action. Otherwise, the good guys were good and the bad guys were bad as in all western stories. I am willing to try more books in the series. The book makes a perfect action get-away story.

The book is two hours and 40 minutes. Ken O’Brien does a good job narrating the book. O’Brien has a good voice for narrating a western story. I believe this is my first experience listening to him read.

Awful or worse

Absolutely the sorriest writing i have ever seen published. The publisher should have their head examined.
