Whenever someone recommends a book to me I approach the task of reading it with some trepidation Mainly because I ve been on the receiving end of some lousy recommendationsBut not this time No siree In Calamity Being an Account of Calamity Jane and Her Gunslinging Green Man JD Jordan has created a work that will stay with me for a long time His use of the vernacular is the element that captivated me from the beginning It s no exaggeration to say that the voice of Calamity Jane is reminiscent of the way Mark Twain rendered speech in his classic novels Jordan writes in the most authentic beautiful honest and captivating wayThe next thing that grabbed me was the fantastic tale itself I absolutely loved the original concept of this book The premise of the story a 15 year old girl an historical figure to boot hitching her fortunes to a gunslinger from outer space with stalks on his head the Green Man is bizarre to say the least But I love the absurd The absurd is wonderful As is JD Jordan s way with language tight purposeful and poetic Plenty of action in the manner of a traditional true western lots of shootin hog tyin fightin and a cussin But with the extra element of sci fiHighly recommend to anyone who wants to step outside the boundaries of the conventional and try something different Five big fat green starsAnd finally if n any low down dirty mudsills be thinking on speaking harsh about this here book them fellas is in for a beefing from me
