My first exposure to Allistair MacLean is seeing the movie adaptation of "Breakheart Pass." Years later, I picked up another of MacLean's novels, and thought it reminded me of the movie. Then, I found the book version and read it.

Breakheart Pass is MacLean at its best. The ending may not be the strongest, but compared to his other books, it is better than the norm of MacLean wrap-ups.

This is an adventure, a thriller, and a mystery, set in the old west. It keeps you guessing, when you're not at the edge of your seat.

Fun escapism in print and in the film version. McLean is a master of the action genre where tension is maintained simultaneously across a number of points of view.

Love this movie with Charles Bronson and Jill Ireland. So reading the book. Not bad. Still like Louis Lamour and Zane Grey better. This is a good story.

This book from 1974 was quite a departure for Maclean, this his only book using the West as a background. His suspense novels circle the globe but none were to be set in the American west such as this one. His approach is good one, and adds something to our vision of the west. Actually that "vision" turns out to be quite good in its approach even if a bit typical. While not entirely formulaic, the novel does follow certain acceptable lines, but to be able to read the story and then to watch it unfold before your eyes in living color on a DVD, is excellent indeed. (I read a lot of westerns) Both the novel and the movie have several differences it is true but both are good in my opinion, with the screen version coming out a little ahead. Maclean wrote them both so it was as he wanted it (I suppose).

Having read the book a few times since that summer of '74 and seen the movie several times as well I find both quite enjoyable. (I have both the hardcover and the DVD) You may find either to your liking and enjoyment,also.
