Reviews - What do customers think about The Justice Riders?
I wish I could give it zero stars Jan 18, 2007
This book is, simply put, a crime against humanity. It's very offensive. An Indian that shoots arrows while everyone else has machine guns? An Irishman that drinks and a proper British sharpshooter? The stereotyping is ridiculous. Aside from that, the writing is just terrible. There were four people credited with writing this thing and not one them said "Wait a minute, this is terrible"? I suppose if you have no taste in literature whatsoever and like racism, this might be an okay book.
Good but Flawed Dec 12, 2006
Captain Ezra Justice has been put in charge of an elite task force during the final days of the Civil War. Their mission is to wreak havoc wherever they can behind the Confederate's lines. The more confusion they can create, the better the chance the Union has of bring the conflict to a conclusion.
Even after the war is over, their job isn't done. There are pockets of resistance left that refuse to surrender. One of these is led by Mordecai Slate. His path seems to cross Ezra's on multiple occasions.
Ezra's current mission, however, is to help with the transportation of prisoner of war. Most of them are weak or sick from their times in the Confederate's prison camps. They are so close to returning home. Yet major danger lurks in their way.
I am not a huge Chuck Norris fan, but have caught a few episodes of his TV show. This book reads like what I know of the show. The emphasis is on the action, and there are several great action scenes. The characters are a little short, but they are still interesting. The line between good and evil is clearly drawn. The story, while interesting, could have used some better focus. The time in history came to life, and I enjoyed the focus on a little known historic event. This is obviously a first novel, however, as the writing is weak.
Some more polish would have made this book much better. Hopefully, as the series progresses, the flaws of this debut will vanish.
Great gift... Jun 26, 2006
This book was a father's day gift and my father has absolutely loved it. He's not normally much of a book person but he's had a hard time putting this one down. If you have a Chuck Norris/Walker Texas Ranger fan in your house, like I did, then it's the perfect gift for them. Looking forward to getting him the second in the series for Christmas or his birthday.
Charachter development Apr 21, 2006
Character developemnt: Chuck Norris does not develop characters in his novels, he roundhouse kicks "the muse" until characters are developed for him.
A refreshing change Apr 18, 2006
It is refreshing to read an action book on the old West and Civil War era that is not laced with profanity. The book seemed to start slow, but the steamboat scene had me rapidly turning pages and visualizing the horror of what was happening. The ending left the door open for future writings on the "Justice Riders". All in all, a very good book.
