    1. This was my second L Amour after To Tame a Land I liked that one a bit than this one but this was still fun It concerns the titular Utah Blaine and his involvement in a complicated range war in Arizona This novel instantly earned points with me for the Arizonan setting, as it s the state I ve lived in my whole life L Amour certainly did the state justice with his lovely and succinct descriptions of the desert, if not quite at the hallucinatory heights of McCarthy s Blood Meridian, which contain [...]

    2. I just tagged this one randomly because I remember particularly like this one I ve read most of his books and they are VERY light reading I can blitz through a L Amour novel in about 1 1 2 hours and I m not a fast reader I ll just say that all his books have a distinct charm about them, in large part because of his respect for nature you have to live with the desert, not against it , old fashioned sense of manliness and justice, and belief in the power of the individual to both be good and effec [...]

    3. Formulaic and predictable But I still enjoyed the out of it, as I always do, with L amour s stuff.

    4. Louis L amour is like comfort food in a book for me I grew up reading his books and they are predictable the good guy always wins, but not till he s been shot and gotten the girl I love them though I tend to skip over the fist fight scenes You can be assured that someone in his books will always be riding a zebra dun or a line backed dun and you always want to be one to ride the river with

    5. This is one of those books you need a program to keep up with everyone, their motives, as well as who they re for and against Sheesh I like Blaine He has a strong sense of honor and justice Even after view spoiler Neal is killed hide spoiler , he stays true to his word where someone else might up and leave A good and fast read, but I can t give it a full five stars for the kind of open ended ending.Coyer Read a book that contains all the letters in the word BLUE Utah Blaine 4 points

    6. L Amour s books are what you might call formulaic but he s an expert at the formula With Utah, he adds unique twists and character personalities that are super fun to follow.Interesting fact I never realized about L Amour so many of his books have at least one strong female character in a central role Utah Blaine is especially good in this regard I d read this one again, very enjoyable

    7. I found this book in a dusty box in my parent s basement and started reading it only because I had nothing else I decided that I d read it since I was moving to Utah and that was in the title In the end, I entirely enjoyed the book I ve read a few Louis L amour but it s been a while Utah Blaine is an action packed western about range wars and love All these years and I didn t realize my dad was reading romances.

    8. This was my very first peek into this well beloved world of Louis L Amour, and I was pleasantly surprised While it was exactly what I anticipateda very tough cowboy, alluring to the females, overcoming all sorts of obstacles, etc etce story and the action kept me reading and involved than I d thought I d be OK, I read it in one day But it was a short one Looks like I ll be back for .

    9. One of my new favorite L Amour books, Utah Blaine captures the reader s attention in the very first chapter I listened to the book on cd, and the reader did an excellent job of reading this exciting western tale If you enjoy a good western story like the ones heard around a campfire about good guys vs bad guys with a heroic woman in the mix, this is a great choice Utah Blaine, the main character, beats a comic strip super hero for me any day

    10. I liked it quite a bit It took me a while to read because I could only read a couple minutes at a time waiting for my daughter to get off school It follows the legendary Utah Blaine in ihs fight against a town full of killers who are after a large ranch property At fisrt it seemed odd, the idea of a rancher almost handing over his ranch to a complete stranger But as absurd as it sounds it paved the for a good book.

    11. Loved this western The ending was a little bit hard to buy into One man is shot eleven times and recovers The hero takes three shots in the book from a professional gunslinger and recovers But it was still a great western One of L Amour s better ones.

    12. As always a good western can be found by reading Louis L Amour He writes in a way that makes you a part of the old frontier and appreciate the old ways It isn t a hard read, but it sure makes me want to read of his books.

    13. Really enjoyed this book When I had read it I had just finished some heavy reading, so this was a fun and very light pallet cleanser indefinitely Predictable Of course Worth reading Every minute of the book.

    15. Another good Louis L Amour story, but this one seemed to have too many bad guys running around It was hard to keep them all straight, and while I understand that L Amour heroes are pretty much too good to be true, it is hard to believe that one man can single handedly eliminate all the opposition.

    16. DON T UNDERESTIMATE UTAH BLAINEWhat can t be said about Louis L Amour that hasn t been said or printed His writings answers any questions you wanted to know about the west From the mighty Pacific to the Atlantic Oceans everyone is familiar with this author I will say include Louis L Amour in quest regarding how the west was settled

    17. Good story about range wars of the West Only part I didn t like was it seemed like Angie and Utah had just met then they were in love Not a lot of development there, but it is of a story of range wars instead of romance Another good L Amour novel.

    21. Utah Blaine steps in just in time to save a Texas rancher from being hung by his own men Author Louis L Amour is amazing at writing stories of the old west.

    22. I m slightly biased in favour of these books because I grew up reading Louis L Amour That said, if you ve never read him before this would be an easy enough starter book.

    23. This is a disappointing story from writing to plotting Utah Blaine is described as a gunfighter and hailed as such throughout the book So, why doesn t L Amour write him as one Sure he fires his guns many times throughout the book But, when it comes to killing he acts like a peacenik than someone out to do away the bad guys He s clipping ears and intentionally missing target after target for reasons that make little sense Unless the sense is that L Amour had a book to get out and he decided to g [...]

    24. Utah Blaine is another entertaining book by the bestselling western writer of all time, Louis L Amour In this story, like most books by this author, you have a strong personality come into town who ends up clearing out the riff raff In this case, it s Utah Blaine, a big man that is a quick draw He runs across some vigilantes about to hang Joe Neal in the pitch dark of the night Another rancher is after his property and Blaine decides to help him out of the sticky situation the finds himself in U [...]

    25. I picked this up as research, not because I had any direct interest in L Amour s writings And while I don t think I ll be going back to this particular well, I m glad to have sampled it This is pure pulp The hero is incredible that is to say, not credible , the villains are unwaveringly malicious It s all a bunch of posturing and bluster interrupted by gunfighting It never looks to the larger world or tries to find truth or meaning It s the most mindless of entertainment.But when it entertains, [...]

    26. As expected, this story is very typical Louis L Amour It s his standard formula of the Good Guy whipping the Bad Guys from Hell to Highwater, while coming out on top and getting the girl However, L Amour makes some really bad writing decisions, such as having too many names that are similar Rip Coker and Rink Whitter, Otten and Ortmann, Tom Kelsey and Dan Timm It gets challenging to keep all the names separate when they are very similar on page, and there are so many of them.Utah Blaine is a dou [...]

    28. So, I love a good Louis and this is no exception Really if give it another 1 2 star It is very quick light reading But I love that Sometimes I just need to be entertained However, I read this with Josh in mind, who is 12, and reading Down the Long Hills in his reading class at school He is quite enjoying it so I thought I d recommend another one This will not be the one There are others that are better I think both the Sacketts and Chick Bowdrey sp he would enjoy As well as others But I m glad [...]

    29. I really liked the characters of the story, especially Utah he s the well known rugged cowboy character, with a keen sense of honor and justice, and real respect for a woman who can take care of herself Every character is fleshed out very well in the story, from the big lug with respect for a good fighter, to the outlaw with carnal desires My only complaint was that there were a few too many names to keep track of I read this book over a week or so between classes, and I had to occasionally go b [...]

    30. When my book club decided to read Louis L Amour, I decided on this in memory of my grandparents My grandma was a huge fan and her husband, Blaine, was a rancher who lived in Utah his whole life Of course, this book is about a gunman named Utah Blaine and is set in Arizona, but it has a good message of good fighting greed and evil and the importance of having government and law enforcement It s a quick and easy read after you get past the lingo unless you read westerns often I would have liked to [...]
