    One thought on “Robert B. Parker's The Bridge”

    1. This book started out very, very slow to the point where I nearly abandoned it But plowing through brought the reward of an action packed third act, complete with shootouts between Cole and Hitch and various outlaws, as well as the culmination of the mystery of who blew up the titular bridge and why I m not sure if I ll continue with the series, as I m pretty sure I have been reading mostly for nostalgia the quality has definitely declined since Knott took over for Robert B Parker but all in all [...]

    2. In my opinion, this effort by Robert Knotts to emulate Robert B Parker s inimitable writing style fell short of its goal The characters of Cole and Hitch were there, their conversations were laconic, and their actions, while effective, were restrained But Robert B Parker s The Bridge came off dull and lacking in excitement very unParkerlike.The terse dialogue that was so captivating under Parker s talent comes off as just plain silly here The realistic backgrounds that sparkled with Parker s tig [...]

    3. I seem to have gone on a Western kick of late I don t know maybe it s my second or possibly third, fourth, whatever childhood Like many of my generation I grew up watching B westerns, western TV programs and of course reading Western novels Seems that when I burn out on reading or hit a string of books that I findahI go find a western.I read all the Robert B Parker westerns and the Robert Knott continuations This is the last, so far.Here we have a tale of Virgil and Everett concerning the buildi [...]

    4. Great to be back in the saddle with Cole and Hitch Robert Knott has done a great job of taking Robert B Parker s western heroes past the death of their creator This time Cole and Hitch are back in Appaloosa along with Allie and the rest of townsfolk Appaloosa has grown up to a population of 2,000 and there is a bridge built to move goods and supplies though the town Just one thing someone has blown the bridge Strange army types are in the town and they don t seem to be what their suppose to be [...]

    5. My not being a cowboy fan, I still liked this book I enjoyed the little mystical world in the character of Seraphine I loved the name Seraphine Virgil and Hitch seemed a little human that in their previous novels Allie, Virgil s girlfriend, was still Allie The town of Appaloosa was a little filled out than previously I think Robert Knott is doing a good job for Robert B Parker.

    6. I won this book in a first reads give away, and since this is book seven I decided to read all of the books before the bridge I loved all of them, I was sad to learn of Robert B Parkers passing he was a good writer I think Robert Knott has filled in really well in the Hitch and Cole books Each book gets better and better, the Bridge is a very good book Would love to see It made into a movie.

    7. Robert B Parker s estate did well in choosing the authors who have followed in sustaining their father s work All have found the voice of the protagonists, and the rhythms of Parker In this case, the margins and word spacing is even filled than Parker, which is a treat since I used to fly through Parker s books Two interesting leading men, a good plot and lots of atmosphere.

    8. One real decent scene managed to save this travesty Not sure what the author is thinking incorporating seers, carnivals, flighty wives and such The ending leaves as many questions as answers 3 of 10 stars

    9. Robert Knott keeps Parker s characters Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch alive and or less well in this continuation of the series The showdown isn t particularly spectacular.

    10. This one is a bit of a letdown after the fun of the first two Knott books Starts slow setting up a couple of plot threads that don t really pay off Knott avoided both Allie French and Appaloosa in his first two outings That was a good choice as it turns out and the return of these elements to the series seem to have thrown Knott off his game Both require a little too much scene setting, it suppose The other books had plots that kicked off right away That s probably the way they should go.

    11. Having seen the movie Appaloosa, also by Robert Parker and featuring the same cast, I could see and hear the two heroes, Cole Ed Harris and Hitch Viggo Mortensen , in my head as they set out to solve the mystery of who blew up the new railroad bridge and why Reading this book was like having my own private screening of a new western

    12. I m not much of a cowboy fan, but found Cole and Hitch interesting The story started out slowly, but did pick up and Knott did a good job of character building and scene descriptions.

    13. I liked this book, seems like the old Cole and Hitch Sometimes it seems as though Mr Knott is too easy on Allie, and we forget that she is an extremely shallow, selfish woman.

    14. I am a fan of Robert B Parker books This is the seventh in the series of the Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch westerns If you enjoy westerns, this is a good book It is easy reading.

    15. Another entry in the post Robert Parker Virgil Cole series The series is set in a rapidly growing town from a couple hundred to a few thousand, overnight in the immediate post Civil War west Virgil Cole is the territorial Marshall, and the narrator is his deputy.This time, Virgil is drafted to see what happened to the local Sheriff who headed up the mountains to a nearby massive bridge construction project, to find a missing worker First, the sheriff disappears, then Virgil learns that the bridg [...]

    16. Robert Knott s been so so in continuing Robert B Parker s Western lawmen, Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch His first outing, Ironhorse, was fair but overlong and really had nothing in it that suggested any motives behind using Parker s name and characters other than those associated with Putnam s cash flow His second, Bull River, was flat out lousy For his third, The Bridge, he wobbles back up a little, with a narrative that holds together a little better than River but still offers nothing any Lon [...]

    17. Won in a GoodReads First Reads giveaway A novel set in the west A novel of many, many chapters A novel of lots of dialogue A novel of sentences of one word, usually a verb.This story continues the Cole Hitch series Territorial marshals, the two are fast friends and not afraid to get mixed up in a bit of gun play The title of this book does to set the stage rather than explain anything about what is going on a bridge being built is blown up Cole and Hitch need to find out who is behind this all, [...]
