Summary

One of the great sagas of our time, the chronicle of the Sackett family is perhaps the crowning achievement of one of our greatest storytellers. In Lando, Louis L'Amour has created an unforgettable portrait of a unique hero.

For six long years Orlando Sackett survived the horrors of a brutal Mexican prison. He survived by using his skills as a boxer and by making three vows.

The first was to exact revenge on the hired killers who framed him. The second was to return to his father. And the third was to find Gin Locklear.

But the world has changed a lot since Lando left it. His father is missing. The woman he loves is married. And the killers want him dead. Hardened physically and emotionally, Lando must begin an epic journey to resolve his past, even if it costs him his life.

I Expected More...

Not bad, but I've come to expect more from Louis L'Amour. It took me several tries to finish it. It was not up to L'Amour standards, in my opinion. The description from the book's inside flap says: "For six long years Orlando Sackett survived the horrors of a brutal Mexican prison. He survived by using his skills as a boxer and by making three vows", but Lando did not fight in prison in the audio version.

Great but odd pauses

Great as always. Not sure if intentional but there are various extra long pauses or ‘dead’ space between chapters and larger story breaks. Just be aware so you don’t think something is wrong.

Loved it!

Best reader I’ve heard yet. Easy to follow and a great story to tell. This Louis L’Amour is quite different from his others.

Wow!

I have listened to the story twice this week so could get every detail of the story. I loved the delivery the speaker gave to the book! I may listen a third time, but later :-)

A great story, well read. A L'Amour favorite.

The narrator was great. I never was bored and my mind never wondered. This is my favorite Louis L'Amour books so far in the Sacketts series. I'm reading them in chronological order.
