Frank Keller is particularly stricken by the attack on Pearl Harbor and joins the army. He returns home to his high school sweetheart and builds a home in the suburbs. I found this book extremely hard to get into. The writing style seemed a bit detached, making the book seem a bit surreal. This made it very hard to get to know the characters and really relate to them. Also, there were some pretty basic grammatical errors present throughout the book, for example, using "their" instead of "there."

American Horse tells the story of Frank Keller, who joins the army after Pearl Harbor at the age of 18. He returns from the war to start a family. Then his son is sent off to Vietnam. Having grown up in the sixties and seventies, I can tell you Panzarella nails it. If you lived through the turmoil of that time, you will understand. If you didn't, American Horse is exactly what it was like. The characters really come to life. Not only the main character, but his family and everyone he meets. This book is entertaining, but also very informative. I would highly recommend it.

After reading Panzarella’s other books I knew I had to read American Horse! It is highly readable and completely addictive and I couldn’t put it down. As with all of his characters, Frank Keller really came alive to me and I felt a connection. The only bad thing about this book is it had to come to an end. I am thoroughly looking forward to William Panzarella’s next offering.

Panzarella has done it again. His characters are substantial and well rounded. He takes the reader on a journey of the human adventure of life. As with all his books it's difficult to put it down; a “page turner” is an understatement. I love the way he portrays each character from a realistic point of view coupled with depth and honesty. Each book is more unique than the last. Panzarella offers diversity leaving the reader yearning for his next creative masterpiece. His own zest for life comes through in his writing.
