Reviews - What do customers think about War Eagles: Inspired by the Original Story by Merian C. Cooper, Creator of King Kong?

Treiz from Mechacon '08 posting a review as promised!!!  Sep 6, 2008
I picked up a signed copy of this book straight from the horses mouth... uh, hoof... well he handed it to me at the convention. I'm a big fan of Carl Macek's previous works including Robotech, and when I found out that he had writen a book I jumped at the chance to check it out.

I promised him that that once I had finished the novel I would post a review on this site, so here I am, I hope you are reading this Mr. Macek!

War Eagles was originally concieved as a follow up by M.C. Cooper after his famous King Kong hit the screens. As I understand it, Carl was approached to write a screen play for the concept and was later given the chance to also write the novelisation as well. According to him, War Eagles was actually his first novel, and after having read through it and looking back at my own experiences working towards my comm/creative writing degree I'm happy to say that his first novel has turned out a lot better then most first attempts I've seen.

War Eagles is a nice smoothe read, great for those who are looking for somthing quick and fun, and what could be more fun then a story about giant birds of prey ripping the Third Reich a new one?!?

The novel is fast paced, too fast in some parts, my only real complaint is that some of the character relationships seemed to develop a little too quickly, but that's my personal taste. The characters are rounded if a bit static, and the setting and back stories make sense. I like how Mr Macek went the extra mile and made the supporting cast feel authentic. The style is very visual, with out being overly detailed, I had no trouble imagining the great birds in their natural habitat or doing battle in the skies above New York.

All in all War Eagles was a quick emjoyable read that managed to preserve the big screen feeling of the original M.C. Cooper films. Check it out!!!
"War Eagles" an amazing blast from the past!!!  Aug 9, 2008
I loved WAR EAGLES. It is right up my alley. An forgotten adventure story by the creator of KING KONG brought back to life by two dedicated writers.

The cover of the book states: "A Novel inspired by an original concept by Merian C. Cooper". That is enough right there to get any film buff's heart racing. I mean, you have a wonderful (and basically unknown) original story by the great Merian C. Cooper (KING KONG) and modern authors Carl Macek and Debbie Bishop bring it to life, raising it from the dead, so to speak. In addition to that, there is a wonderful forward by stop-animation legend Ray Harryhausen.

For me, it was a real page turner. If you love adventure stories set in the distant past and have a soft spot in your heart for great beasts like KING KONG, this is for you!

If you have children, check out Debbie Bishop's "The Faries Of Bladderwhack Pond" and the just published "Shadow Boys". Two really wonderful books.
Surprisingly a Fun Read  Aug 8, 2008
While I enjoy science fiction and historical novels, the premise of this story seemed too far fetched for me to enjoy but surprisingly I found it well written and quite enjoyable. The story moved well and it kept my interest in the plot and characters so I was able to complete it in just two nights.

If anyone is looking for a great summer read, whether you're in to sci fi, historical novels or just reading about a good old fashioned patriotic hero, you won't be disappointed and, if you feel the concept is just a little too far out to be believable, you'll be in for a very pleasant surprise.
