review Deadwood 103 Imself pursued by a vicious sheriff a perverse whore man bent on revenge and a besotted Calamity Jane Fueled by liuor sex and violence this is the real wild west unlike anything portrayed in the dime novels that first told its sto. I watched every episode of the Deadwood series and was so disappointed when it ended so abruptly after only 3 seasons When I saw that this book was actualy the book that David Milch built his series around I had to read it The book is similar in many ways to the excellent series but it is different too It s actually much deeper and Charlie Utter one of my characters in the series is the main character in the book He is the glue that holds everything together The book is totally surprising and there is so much depicted in it Utter is the voice of reason in the wilds of Deadwood He s a man who is best friend to the legend Wild Bill Hickok and he s a man who studies and examines humankind all around him and even if he s not surprised at the depravity he encounters his ability to mediate and provide a voice of reason even under the most shocking circumstanes helps his friends and acuaintenances through difficult times Charlie is very much a man of his time 1870 s but he s also a modern man in a changing world The book is hilariously funny in spots and totally shocking in others but through it all we have Charlie making his way through it and his experiences are so well depicted that it helps us assimilate the multitude of humanity and the multitude of viloence in Deadwood USA I didn t think I d find another book about the old west that I would like as much as Lonesome Dove but this book can hold its place beside Lonesome Dove and even rises above in many aspects

review Deadwood 103 DEADWOOD DAKOTA TERRITORIES 1876 Legendary gunman Wild Bill Hickcock and his friend Charlie Utter have come to the Black Hills town of Deadwood fresh from Cheyenne fleeing an ungrateful populace Bill aging and sick but still able. Despite being written 20 years before the excellent show on HBO was first broadcast it s hard to imagine that it didn t serve as a template for the show s creator David Milch minus the profanity ubiuitous throughout the show So in sync are the characterizations in both the book and show despite the age difference that I easily and comfortably envisioned the actors playing the various real life roles reciting the dialogue from the bookSince I think the program might well be the best thing ever shown on TV the book had a lot to measure up to and I m happy to say to it was eual to the task While ostensibly a western it actually transcends the genre as it is really about character friendship family love and the still present attitudes men have about women and their perceived limitations But it was all served up in the crucible of a practically lawless mining town deep in Sioux territory virtually outside the jurisdiction and protection of the US governmentTHe only reason I m not giving it 5 stars is I don t trust my objectivity with this one but I have to say I m really glad I read it and thought it was great

review Deadwood 103 To best any man in a fair gunfight just wants to be left alone to drink and play cards But in this town of played out miners bounty hunters upstairs girls Chinese immigrants and various other entrepeneurs and miscreants he finds h. When I came across this book I wanted to read it because I had seen the HBO series Deadwood and thought it was fantastic Unfortunately the book was nowhere as good as the series Just so I don t confuse anyone I want to point out that the series was not a film adaption of this book They are both based on the same town and characters but are two different animals when it comes to the telling and style The book is not bad it s just that it lacks the dark dramatic backdrop set in the series Even though the book gives some harsh details and explicit sex scenes it has of a whimsical feel about it That style put me off and I had a hard time taking the story seriously This may be far entertaining for those who don t know the history of the town and the legend of Bill Hickok If you haven t heard the story take my opinion with a grain of salt and know that this might be an enjoyable read for you
