Hondo was a great reread. I’ve read the story before, back in the 80’s or 90’s. I used to read a lot of Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey. This year I’ve been buying audiobooks so I can listen to their stories while I’m driving.
The story is told third person past tense from multiple points of view, Hondo Lane, Mrs. Angie Lowe, Lt. Creyton C. Davis, Major Sherry, El Lowe, Sergeant Young, and even the dog’s, Sam’s, point of view. The only criticism I can think of is the way they fistfight in the story. If you’ve seen an old western you’ll know what I’m talking about. The good guy always drags the bad guy to his feet before punching him again. In the real world most people would stomp the crap out of anybody after knocking them down so they couldn’t get back up.
About half of the time I read everything from nonfiction to westerns. The other half of the time I read sci-fi and fantasy, when I’m not watching sci-fi and fantasy series.
Sci-fi and fantasy authors I like include Douglas Adams, Taylor Anderson, Isaac Asimov, Paolo Bacigalupi, Ray Bradbury, Jack Campbell, Orson Scott Card, Arthur C. Clarke, Earnest Cline, Suzanne Collins, Abe Evergreen, Diana Galbadon, William R. Forstchen, Joe Haldeman, Robert A. Heinlein, Frank Herbert, Hugh Howey, George Martin, Larry Niven, Andre Norton, George Orwell, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, John Scalzi, John Steakley, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Andy Weir.
Starship Troopers (1959) (not like the movie) by Robert A. Heinlein is the book that got me started in sci-fi adventures, and has remained one of my top five favorite military science fiction adventure stories for decades. The Forever War (1974) by Joe Haldeman, Armor (1984) by John Steakley, Ender’s Game (1985) by Orson Scott Card, and Old Man’s War (2005) by John Scalzi, round out my top five military sci-fi adventure stories.
