Brimstone by Robert B. Parker

I’m actually still reading this book, it is the third in a series but I can say after reading the first two (Appaloosa and Resolution) that by the time I managed to get this posted I might be done again! Now before you point out all the reading time I have while sitting around nursing a sick baby, and accuse me of reading too fast let me say that these books are populated by gun fighters.  And these guys, they don’t chat much. The book looks big, but here is a typical page:

Notice the lack of wordage?  Not big on descriptions, not big on conversation. But do you really need someone to layout a western scene for you in great detail? The books make me chuckle, the guys contemplate human nature between shooting people, protecting the town whores, drinking whiskey and getting into and out of trouble, what more could you ask for out of a western?

Would I recommend it? Yes!  Start with Appaloosa, and think about getting two at a time from the library, they go quick!
