As usual in a Johnstone book and frankly - it seems to be a staple in western novels, at least one character will be the fastest draw in the universe and another guy will be just as good. They will try their luck against each other and one will be shot dead. As I closed the last page of the book, my only thoughts were ''I hope I never read another book in this series'' and ''Please, don't let Smoke, Preacher, Luke, Matt, Ace, Chance, Frank or any of the fun characters do a cross over with Flintlock''.

Not exactly what I expected in a western. Read Harder Challenge - A western. I had to let this one sit on my brain a little to distill my feelings about it. Generally, it was a typical Johnstone western, with an added small side of supernatural mysticism. The story read more like a setup for later novels - nothing about it really stands out great, but nothing was horrible either. The main character, Flintlock, may become an interesting character in later novels, but in this one he was treated more like part of an ensemble set of characters than as the principle character I had to let this one sit on my brain a little to distill my feelings about it.
The main character, Flintlock, may become an interesting character in later novels, but in this one he was treated more like part of an ensemble set of characters than as the principle character. Some of the secondary characters had just as much depth as the primary character Flintlock. There were a lot of little subplots sprinkled in, but nothing really came of them and they really didn't contribute much to the overall plot.
Even though she was a plot device to get the bad guy Asa thrown out of the fort before the robbery of the pay wagon, it could have been done without trying to make her this devious mastermind nymphomaniac boozing murderess, who only just gets gunned down by Asa for revenge on his way out of the fort. The whole subplot was a waste. Another character that was a waste of time was the Ayasha character.
A victim of brutal rape where Flintlock takes her under his care, she really doesn't add anything to the plot, either in character development to show a compassionate side of Flintlock, or to the story itself in which she really didn't affect. Basically, a young woman who has been brutally raped and watched her family murdered just needs to have a bath with some perfumed soap, dressed nicely, and then trotted around the country side where the tribe of Indians that raped her are still around and she will be fine by the end as the hero rides off without her.
Take that metoo!
We will see. This one was a mediocre introduction to a series - it didn't turn me off reading more, but it didn't compel me to immediately start the next novel to see what happens next. I originally gave this book 3 stars, but realized that is only 1 star less than many books that I rated as four stars, books that were better written and more interesting. So I dropped it to 2 stars, though really would have been more accurate to be 2. Good characters who are a bit off the intelligence track. A fun read with lots of twists and turns.
I enjoyed it and will read the next book in the series. Therefore, I like history novels and westerns. The majority of movies are full of this crap and wild grafics. Most Good characters who are a bit off the intelligence track. Most of these books either bore me or cause me to watch sports on the tube. The action is almost over before it gets started as Flintlock is about to be hung Seems he killed the wrong man in a fair fight.
He is broken out of jail by a sometime bandito and possible enemy that wants him to help find a golden bell that is rumored to have been hidden by monks. Meanwhile there is another group of bad guys that want him dead. He is a popular guy. Lots of good old Western action. Jul 05, Allen D. The Finest in Western Entertainment! Once again William W.
Anyone who enjoys action packed western literature will love this amazing example of western story telling from the number one author of the genre. Blood, blood, and more blood Wanted a western. Hired guns, disgusting villians, Geronimo, Buffalo Soldiers not enough about them , torture and more blood. Writer has some resume. Truly Awesome I read a lot of books. At times I struggle to finish books from cover to cover. This is because I get bored more interested in something different. Therefore, this is one of the few looks that I have quickly finished. I was not able to put this book down!
I'm not even afraid to say this is the Best Western novel that I have ever read. I would recommend this book to anybody that is wanting a good story! This author is an amazing storyteller! This is my first book by this author. His style is somewhat different from some other western writers, but I enjoyed it and look forward to more from him. Mar 12, Tome Addiction rated it really liked it Shelves: western. Excellent, one of the better western stories I have read by J.
Looking forward to book 2. As for most authors that publish several books a year they all use a formula, even Grey and L'Amour has a formula and you can grasp it after reading several of their books. Don't read Johnstone expecting another author, read Johnstone for Western Entertainment. Turn your brain off and enjoy the story. If you want more developed characters more story than action read L'amour. Johnstone is great i Excellent, one of the better western stories I have read by J. Johnstone is great in his own right and I enjoy the action adventures based in the west.
Mar 06, Rob Smith, Jr. This book is nearly flawless. This is not a simple good guy vs. It's a complex tale of many characters with many stories that lead to hard to expect conclusions. The writing is way above average for a Johnstone Clan novel. Characters, what i feel is the Johnstone hallmark, are excellent in depiction.
Flintlock (Flintlock, #1) by William W. Johnstone
Considering how many are included, each is distinctly built. Most are written with more than a few views and develop during the novel. The settings are also very well described and f This book is nearly flawless. The settings are also very well described and flourishes of settings detailed throughout the narrative. The author of this Johnstone book does stray from the normal Johnstone writings with a cross-dressing bar owner with an identity crisis.
There's also an odd writing of views of blacks and more than one character reacting as if the view of black people was different at that time, which it wasn't. In other words, this is the first time I've seen political correctness creep into a Johnstone novel. Another trouble I have with the book is another poorly executed cover. The Flintlock character is so well defined by height, mustache and flamboyant tattoo that the typical western hero model on the cover is obviously disconnected. Still another issue is the extensive use of mysticism throughout the book.
If the reader pays attention it all relates to other activity in the book. It's a bit too subtle for an average reading. The worse part of it is that there are too many characters that claim mystic experiences. That was not out of the ordinary in the west at that time, though political correctness was. This was also a major change in a Johnstone Clan novel, a turn to science fiction.
All of my complaints are mostly superficial. The book otherwise is excellent and fulfilling. Bottom line: I recommend this book.

Oct 05, Randy rated it it was amazing. The author behind the J. Johnstone gives us a most interesting character in Sam Flintlock. The son of a prostitute, he's raised by an old mountain man named Barnabas who gives him the Flintlock surname after the old Hawken muzzle loader he carries. Sam carries that now as well as more modern weapons such as a six gun tucked into a sash and a winchester. He's thirty-eight and wears cheap clothing it's said he could sell them, boots included, for a dime. His most prominent feature is the thunder The author behind the J. His most prominent feature is the thunderbird tattoo across his neck.
Old Barnabas was a man of beliefs and the tattoo inspired fear in a lot of people, Apaches included. He collects bounties for a living. That gets him in trouble in a small town where one man refuses to go quietly and Sam is forced to kill him in defense of his life. Unfortunately, it's the outlaw's home town and he's quickly set up for a hanging. He gets broken out by an old outlaw friend, Abe Roper, and his partner Charlie Fong. They want him to ride shotgun for them as they go after an old bell made of solid gold, two thousand pounds worth, that had been found by an old miner who liked to talk a lot.
Everyone is after it. And why not, At gold prices, that ran to six hundred thousand dollars. That's the main plot and along the way, the group run into Apaches, Geronimo himself among them, an outlaw band with their own agenda at Fort Defiance stealing a hundred-twenty thousand dollar payroll , and a band of Mexican bandits. First of a series, I enjoyed this one.

I read an interview of the author, William Johnstone, who outlined why westerns are so popular, and he indicated because they bring Americans in the modern-day era of big government, rules, regulation, and an unjust justice system, back to a time when justice was swift, fair and sure, and people got what they deserved That's why I love westerns, and Flintlock in particular.

However, I am just beginning to see why they are so popular. Flintlock the man is the quintessential gunslinger with a conscience. He's an expert at what he does; he's the fastest gunman in the room, but he also cares about those who suffer from oppression, and he fights for those who cannot fight for themselves.
I pray that this becomes a series like so many other of Johnstone's novels, because this is a character that you will love right off the bat, and will grow to care for along the way. He isn't perfect, but he certainly proves his mettle against those who are just plain evil, and you will LOVE those moments throughout the novel. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves that lone gunslinger who fights for justice at all costs. Jul 01, An Odd1 rated it liked it Shelves: action.
Samuel Flintlock bears thunderbird tattoo across throat from Grandpappy Barnabas, who talks, sends dreams, orders boy 40 to carry old Hawken flintlock. We know the preordained ending. Too bad. Lots of scary torture appropriate to era. Bank robber Abe Roper plants a barrel of gunpowder to blow a hole in jailhouse wall before scheduled hanging.
