This was my first Western that I ever read. Never read Appaloosa. But I did see the movie and thought I would like to follow these characters. So I did.
Resolution wasn't as good as Appaloosa. It lacked the true grit that usually a Western has. I thought there was going to be more killing in it. I believe though why not much killing is the way Cole, and Hitch were written. They are soft,spoken men who don't need to be killing to get their point across. There is an intelligence to them both.But don't cross them and let them go about their business, or else.
I like how Resolution was about Hitch since he went off on his own. But you know he wasn't going to be alone for long without his friend Cole.
The town Resolution was an unfinished town but soon be built after Cole and Hitch blazed a path for it.
My favorite line "I'm with Hitch" everytime someone asked about Cole.
I found it surprising that the author Parker, writes in short dialogue with modern words. Threw me off there for a bit but was accepted quickly. I'm thinking that's so good about it.
I give Resolution
Amazon says Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought many of Robert Parker's other books.
I'm looking forward to reading the next in line Brimstone
