    "Trail of the Hawk is a delightful, early novel by the young Sinclair Lewis. Written a few years after "Martin Eden," by his friend and colleague, Jack London, Lewis's skill as a story-teller is already apparent. While "Martin Eden" is modeled after London's own amazing, short life, "The Hawk is pure fiction. Martin Eden is essentially auto-biographical. Jack London lived much the same life as his character: a bold adventurer with no formal schooling. On the other hand, Lewis's "Hawk" is pure fiction, but with a character obviously similar to Martin Eden. The two authors were friends and colleagues; London's name is even mentioned, with clear admiration, in "The Hawk." The two authors shared a youthful admiration for socialism, clear in all their work. But, unlike with Upton Sinclair, their contemporary, "Socialism" is not forced like a bludgeon upon the reader.The story itself is the weapon. The Hawk begins his amazing career as a stunt pilot in the early years of aviation. As his friends and colleagues meet tragic ends, he realizes there must be a better way to use his life. His path is highly non-linear; he tries an assortment of opportunities. Parallel to his professional life, his romantic life has its ups and downs (no pun intended). It's never clear if he will settle down with his boyhood playmate from the prairie or the New York socialite he meets quite by chance. There is room for even another flame, knowing how Lewis can alter his protagonist's path, even late into the story (e.g. Dodsworth). Of course, all the romance is quite Victorian, as is nearly all the pre-1930 American prose. Nothing more than hand-holding here, even for engaged couples. But that is part of the charm. If you are prepared for a long, flavorful journey, with all the writing skills of this master (Lewis was the first American to win the Nobel Literature Prize), this book is for you."

    "Elmer Gantry is not the best sinclair lewis book. He has more popular books available. If you search on Amazon or Goodreads you can find much better books that he has written, such as Babbitt, Hike And The Aeroplane and Our Mr. Wrenn. I would start with one of those first."

    "This is a really good book if you can allow yourself to get past the somewhat slow moving plot and the many characters that come and go throughout. The story has enough surprises and twists to grab your interest and keep you wondering what will happen next."
