Overview

Lonesome Gods by Louis L'Amour

“I am Johannes Verne, and I am not afraid.”
 
This was the boy’s mantra as he plodded through the desert alone, left to die by his vengeful grandfather. Johannes Verne was soon to be rescued by outlaws, but no one could save him from the lasting memory of his grandfather’s eyes, full of impenetrable hatred. Raised in part by Indians, then befriended by a mysterious woman, Johannes grew up to become a rugged adventurer and an educated man. But even now, strengthened by the love of a golden-haired girl and well on his way to making a fortune in bustling early-day Los Angeles, the past may rise up to threaten his future once more. And this time only the ancient gods of the desert can save him.

Lonesome Gods is an awesome book. I love how it's not just history. But it's history and somebody's life. Johannes goes through so much in this book it's makes me more thankful for what I have. My dad's still alive and so is my mom (both of his parents are dead.). This exciting book makes you really rethink whats going on around you.

A believable story as are all of Mr Lamour's books. Once you read any of Mr Lamour books you're never the same(like meeting the lady in High Lonesome).Reading his books is like setting down for someone in a love affair.

He was a good story teller and I have enjoyed every book written by him and I have read quite few of them.

This was an outstanding book I could not put it down until it was finished.

This book is one of Mr. L'Amour's best novels. Filled with his usual historical accuracy, the action starts on page one, and never stops. If you've never read one of his books, this is a great one to start with. You'll be hooked!

I was very impressed with this story, which seemed to me to be a more fleshed-out version of the typical L'Amour pulp western fiction. This story featured a first person narrative with cuts to third person every once and a while to clarify something or fill in storyline gaps. I especially liked the coming-together of the story at the end whereby the book feels like it speeds up as the loose ends are tied up. I did not see any glaring issues. A very enjoyable read!

Another rare gem. This novel may start a little slow but picks up and is immensely satisfying And as is typical Lamour it leaves you asking yourself questions about yourself.

This book really surprised me as it was the first of his I had read. The entire book made me think about things that were important in my family's life. Reading this also reinforced why I refuse to let my girls read the dumbed down literature of today and stress reading the classics! I loved this and am going to read it again but this time to my girls. There were so many lessons to be learned!
