Horseman, Pass by

Hud Bannon was as tough as the Texas land he lived on. Women were drawn to him like pins to a magnet. The boy Lonnie made an idol of him. But was he ... Show synopsis

Charles C

rent the movie( HUD)

by Charles C on Jun 2, 2011

As the auther stated in his latest book, " It was not a good ending".

Brwhit6

1st novel, written in H.S.

by Brwhit6 on Dec 11, 2008

Amazing writing for a high school student. The story is different from the movie. E.g.: Halmea is black in the book (Patricia Neal's role in the movie.)

CSDC

Not exactly "Hud," but very good

by CSDC on Jun 7, 2007

This is Larry McMurtry's first novel, on which the film "Hud" featuring Paul Newman was based. In the novel, Hud is a much more brutal character even than in the film, committing both rape and murder, and harboring even deeper unexplained resentments. But the novel focuses less on the title character of the film than on the young boy, Lonnie, who narrates the novel. The title of the novel is taken from the last lines of William Butler Yeats's poem "Under Ben Bulben": "Cast a cold eye / on life, on death / Horseman, pass by!" The bleakness of the context from which the novel's title is taken is appropriate. Although Lonnie ultimately breaks away, his future is even more problematic in the novel than in the film, given the bleak and brutal environment which has nurtured him. This is not a casual read for someone looking for an uplifting message about life; but it is a stirring and thought-provoking novel, and a great example of the "anti-Western."
