Experience the Wild West! Review
Six Gun Caballero by L Ron Hubbard
Link to my review on Amazon:
SIX GUN CABALLERO
If you think John Wayne leads the way, think again... Enter a world where bold men come to life --in stories that take you by surprise and spark your imagination. If you love characters like John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Gary Cooper and Jack Palance--you don't want to miss this! We have been releasing a series of authentic Western stories from Stories from the Golden Age. I am looking for people that would like to try these in book or audio movie(drama) format. We have 15 in the series, all run about 2 hours each.
He’s handsome. He’s charming. He’s a total gentleman . . . and he’s totally outgunned and outnumbered. He’s Michael Patrick Obañon—a role that has Antonio Banderas written all over it.
Obañon’s lost his inheritance—a 100,000-acre New Mexico spread—and he could lose his life if he’s not careful. A ruthless band of renegades have seized his land, and he’s determined to get it back.. Obañon’s got one secret weapon: his fierce intelligence. He can’t outshoot the outlaws, so he’ll have to find a way to outwit them. . . .
Part Irish, part Mexican, Michael Patrick Obañon is as American as they come—crafty, confident, and cool under fire. It may be one man against the world, but before he’s done the world will know how the West will be won.
In the 1930s a radio program, Writers and Readers, hosted by Bob de Haven, delivered news of the hottest authors of the day—interviewing the writers behind the stories. Here’s how he promoted an upcoming broadcast with L. Ron Hubbard: “He has placed in print a million and a half words. He is a quantity producer, well paid and in constant demand. He has outlined some valuable information on his lead novelette . . . Six-Gun Caballero.” It is an introduction to Hubbard that is as pertinent now as it was then. “Hubbard uses the traditional Western form to tell a challenging and unpredictable story, where the hero outwits his attackers instead of merely having to outshoot them. . . . so intelligent and suspenseful.” —SomebodyDies.com
***My Personal Review***
I love reading audiobooks especially because I work on my computer, so listening to audiobooks gives me something different to do while I am working and helps me take my mind off what I am doing :) I also love stories about the Wild West so when the opportunity came up to review this book I was excited! This is the first book by L Ron Hubbard I have read and it was excellent! It has everything that a Wild West drama should - action, guns and outlaws. Now I am not a history expert, however I checked into a few things and this book is extremely historically accurate. It is a short read, one night for most people - about 2 hours long.
It is a very intriguing story and it pulls you right into the middle of the action, which is great because it is such a short story. I didn't find a boring part out of the whole book! And to make a great Western that is what it takes :)
I had no idea before getting this product for review that Hubbard was such a great writer and had written so much. Besides being well-known for his science-fiction stories from the later days, he also wrote a lot of these Western-style books. I loved the character of Michael Obanon and rooted for him instantly, he is a very well-written protagonist. And he never gives up - he wants his land and will not stop until it is his again. Great story from a collection I hope to read more of! Check out the links above to pick up your audio or book copies!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
