I’m a Native of Louisiana, who loves hunting, fishing, horseback riding, swimming in the Amite River, and Darlington Creek. My favorite childhood game was playing cowboys and indians, my favorite television shows were westerns, my favorite novels were westerns mostly written by Louis L’Amour. I love to write although it may be fiction, western fiction is a part of me. I grew up in a medium size family having one brother, and one sister, our father died when I was about one year old, therefore, I was only raised by my mother.
As I read this book I was just totally into it. The plot keeps the readers interest. It just keeps you steadily turning the pages, that's how interesting it was. The author wrote the characters with very simple descriptions, allowing the reader to think for themselves and draw their own conclusion.The descriptions of the scenery has just enough to make the reader put their imaginations to
work and see for themselves the scenery and the way the characters looked. It was up to the reader to visualize the characters and their appearance. I loved the way the author wrote this book. He put the vision to the reader instead of giving it all in the book. The book has a journey into revenge. Revenge on who? I think I will let the next reader discover that on their own. The author wrote a book about something society has always believed in and held to account. Justice and right and wrong. I don't think we can totally believe that right and justice always prevails. At least not in the real world. I liked this book and would recommend it to everyone who likes to put their imagination to work with a little help from the author. Wonderful! I haven't read a book like this and I'm so glad I did.
I received a complimentary copy of APACHE MEX from
the author, Chestcat Thomas and OutSkirtsPress for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
