    I had this author on my lists from Gutenberg specifically on the HowdyPardner list for interesting looking Westerns When I discovered that I could use the book for two different challenge tasks this month read a Western and read a book with a person's name in the title I figured it was the perfect time to finally have a peek at Lockhart's workUnfortunately I did not care much for this book I can appreciate the different viewpoint with the main character being an absolutely despicable creature a cold blooded murderer a conniving deceitful lout who is only interested in what he can get from anyone he meets Well I can appreciate the idea of this viewpoint the idea of giving a twist to the typical Western hero But the reality of it was not as appealingThe first chapter shows what a cad Smith is He is lost out on the range and asks an Indian he meets for directions Then promptly kills him Shoots him so full of lead I was disgusted Steals his blanket and is annoyed with himself for making a couple of bullet holes in it Pulls a moccasin off the dead man's foot to confirm by the beading what tribe the man had belonged to Then this as he left “I’m a killer me—Smith” he said and grinned Well dang So I was than prepared for this Smith creature to be a man I would love to hate and he was I kept reading to see what kind of chaos he would create and if he would ever get caught but I never did really enjoy the story and just skimmed for highlights after the halfway point What was wrong with this book for me I wonder? I've read others with hateful characters so it wasn't completely that I did think the ending was superb and totally justified even if it was a bit corny Maybe that was the problem The whole plot felt corny One of the characters was a 'bug hunter' which the author claimed is the name for any scientific type in the West This one was hunting for fossils and turned out to be a very convenient person to the plot But it all still felt corny This was Lockhart's first novel so maybe her later work would seem different to me There are four or five others at Gutenberg but judging from my blah response to this one I doubt if I will ever try any of themnot me Zapata

    I've been on a classics spree and 'MeSmith' was recommended as a classic by Project Gutenberg Why I don't know I tried really hard and got to 38% of the book I did not want to agree with the reviews I read on here But goodness gracious I couldn't get myself to care one bit about any of the characters The lead character Smith is an insufferable twat with an overblown sense of self importance Susie is just annoying and so is her mother the Indian woman Dora is the cliché woman that all men would like cute giggle earnest eyes and all that mess The only character I could have liked was MacArthur He seemed the only intelligent one of the lot and even he was terribly dull I'm sorry I really tried but I can't read any further I hope it gets better farther along but I won't be the one to find out 😂
