Summary

Here are two exciting stories featuring Lance Kilkenny by beloved Western writer Louis L'Amour.

In "A Man Called Trent", nester Dick Moffitt lies dead, killed by King Bill Hale's riders. His son Jack and adopted daughter Sally, who witnessed the murder, go for safety to a cabin owned by a man called "Trent" - an alias for Kilkenny, who is seeking to escape his reputation as a gunfighter.

In "The Rider of Lost Creek," Lance Kilkenny is the fastest gun in the West, but once the gunfight is over, he disappears. Some time back, Mort Davis saved Kilkenny's life. Now Davis needs Kilkenny's help with a pair of feuding ranchers taking over his property.

Kilkenny

Fine recording, the two books are presented in the wrong order but enjoyable for all that.

Classic L'amour

Two books which are recorded in the wrong order. A Man Called Trent should be after The Rider of Lost Creek which begins on chapter 21.

I love Louis L'Amour so I could was lyrical about these stories for a long time, however I think probably westerns are a marmite genre. I will just say that the fighting scenes are very realistically described in all likelihood due to the author's experiences as a boxer.

A real mouthful

Very enjoyable, western, duo. Don’t read Westerns usually. That may change. L’Amour tells em straight.

Standard western fare

The two stories of this book are presented in reverse chronological order in this recording (ie the wrong way round) but if you like two-fisted, QuickDraw westerns this book will scratch that itch pardner

fine story and good performance

haven't read a Louis L'Amour story for years and have now finished 2 in one book. only regret that the 21deg of the 2 stories is not reversed. My suggestion is you listen to the 2nd one first.

Standard L'Amour but beware....

Two enjoyable stories. As with many L'Amour titles, the plots are essentially similar - fast draw good guy takes on the baddies, with a little help and a beautiful girl in the background. Be honest though, that's why we love L'Amour. BE AWARE though that whether it's Audible or the publisher, for some reason the story that is second on the recording is actually the first chronologically, which is slightly annoying.

Listen to the second book first. chapter 21.

The books will be in chronological order if you listen to the second one first at chapter 21. I did not know that but enjoyed them anyway.

Stupidly put the stories out of order.

Instead of putting the stories in chronological order, they start with the later book, then go back in time to an earlier story. Such a ridiculous mistake.

the narration was horrible. The story is slow

the narration was horrible. The story is slow which is uncommon for a Louis L'Amour adventure. I think the narration is what made it the most unbearable. unfortunately I've waited too long to exchange it.

Louis L'Amour - A hard act to follow

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes due to the fact that from the very first, the characters are introduced and as the story progresses each feeling is described.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Man Called Trent?

When Trent discovered he was a man of the west with specific values that he would fight for.

Who was the most memorable character of A Man Called Trent and why?

Trent, because he had enough forsight to realize that just being a fast gun wasn't enough. He knew the true gun fighter should stay in the background.

I thought I had read them all

I thought I had read all of the Louis L'Amour books but I didn't remember this one. There are some things about the storyline that I don't like, such as ideas and antagonists that are forgotten and unresolved as new ideas and antagonists come into the story. Overall I liked the story but it won't make my top 10.

Kilkenny is my name

I enjoyed this book even though I feel that the two stories were reversed. I the first story Kilkenny saved Anita and took her away from the burning saloon. On the second story Anita was alive and well with her saloon still standing. Very strange.
The narrator was very good. Very Western sounding. I felt like I was sitting around a camp fire on a cattle drive.
