- The Hour of the Dragon
As an author, I particularly enjoy reading fine writing, and I must say, for the genre, nobody does it like RE Howard. His writing style is both descriptive and rapid paced, and his ability to set a scene with a few words is remarkable. The first page of 'The Hour of the Dragon' is a great example, I was told that editors at TOR press still use it as an example of how to hook the reader, set the scene, and start the story moving.
I hadn't read the story in many years, but I still found it as hard to put down as the first time I read it. And my own main character, Eskkar, owes much of his style to Conan. Those that haven't read Conan, or Robert E. Howard's writing are in for a treat.

The movie versions unfortunately want to give Conan a origin created by Hollywood writers that think there must always be an origin. Or lighten the character of Conan.

This is well on into his life after he has become King. Good book and series. I enjoyed reading it. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Audible Download Audio Books. DPReview Digital Photography. After about 10 or so of them, though, it's basically the same story over and over, so didn't actually finish them all. This work was well done and follows the same pattern as Howard's other Conan books.
Well worth the read. This work holds up well upon repeat readings; Howard was a very capable writer and a master at what he wished to do, which was to write a well-paced and plotted sword and sorcery tale.
Sometimes the prose may feel mildly archaic, but this is not necessarily a fault. Excellent writing, especially considering the personal turmoil Howard was going through as he wrote this.

As a kid I was a big fan of conan and followed the stories in the Savage Sword comic magazine series. Reading these original tales took me back to that time. A must read for all fans of fantasy an sword and sorcery. Verified Purchase. The Conan stories are fun and easy to read. Conan was one of the first sword and sorcery fantasy books and it is amazing. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good fantasy read.
I enjoyed these stories when I was a kid, and I was pleased to buy them for my boy. It's hard for a book to compete with 3D and XBox, but these stories can still hold their own. Howard wrote for Weird Tales for many years and one of his post popular creations was Conan the Barbarian. Arnold Schwarzenegger made Conan a household name with his film adaptation. Now Jason Momoa follows in Arnold's footsteps by bringing the Cimmerian to the big screen, thus finding himself on the cover of the re-release of the novel.
While Conan may be a brute that uses his sword to deal with many adversaries, he is anything but a one cord musician. Conan frequently outwits his opponents He proclaims to live by a simple standard, it boils down to live life to the fullest for any day may be your last.

It would be hard to sell Conon as a philosopher before his time, but I would argue that Howard makes Conan a relatable character for a fun ride. This may be my favorite Conan story. Howard delivers the goods and whisks the reader away to Conan's land. If you only read one Conan story in your life, make it this one. See all 19 reviews.
