May 10, 2009"A Great Read" This was a fun fast moving book. I think the characters where well developed and you really ended up getting attached to them. I enjoyed this completely and look forward to a sequel. Well done Lobo!
Jul 19, 2006"A Bad Feeling by FW Hurst" There was a time years ago when a trip to the book store was a trip into a different world. Tarzan swung from the vines, John Carter battled Martians, Conan fought evil tyrants and Sherlock Holmes solved every mystery. Pulp fiction was King, the high dollar critics despised it but the average American avidly followed the adventures of Nero Wolfe, and marvelled at the inventiveness of Doc Savage. Times change. The books we bought evolved into High Tech Thrillers, Down and Dirty Westerns and deep thought full books that wanted to teach us something as well as entertain us. Please, dont misunderstand me. I love the High Tech thrillers by Clancy, Rosenberg, Cussler and others. I devour the westerns of Johnstone, Compton, Cotton and L'Amour. As well as the deep books by Potock, Jeffrey Archer and others. As much as I love the new style of books, there are times that I miss the simpler style of the Pulp writers. I will go back and re-read one of the... More > old Sherlock Holmes, Conan the Barbarian, Tarzan or Lone Ranger books just to once more exist in that "Black and White" world. A world where the good guys were always good, always did the right thing and the bad guys were just evil bullies they were not motivated by some insane Imman in a Mosque somewhere in the Middle East. Recently I ran across a new book by a new writer that recaptured that simpler style of the Pulp books. A rousing adventure set in a small East Texas town much like the one I live in. The main characters were people that I could identify with, my neighbors and my relatives. A rousing story of Good vs Evil that starts out at a Thanksgiving Family Reunion. The hero of the story, Ron Hooks, is ex-Military and pushing Fifty. Just an average guy put in an extraordinary situation. The story opens at a family get together for Thanksgiving in East Texas. Odd things begin to happen as the family start to enjoy their weekend. From the initial encounter with the uninvited guests till the thrill packed ending the story grabs you by the throat and forces you to pay attention. The writer paints a vivid and believable picture of the main characters and the "Uninvited Guests". The plot is tight, easily followed and worth the roller coaster ride it will take you on. I seldom recommend first books by any writer because the fact is they are still learning the trade but I STRONGLY suggest you take a chance on this book and this writer< Less
Mar 22, 2006"A Very GOOD Book" One of the most engaging stories I have read in quite some time. A good fiction piece, and one you don't want to end (when it does). A "positive" storyline, several references to Christian spirituality ( ), LOTS of evidences of people of character, moral, and spirit, good picture of rugged individualism, good family dynamics (and a good vision of some not-so-good), clearly delineated "good" and "evil" no lines smearing the two ( ), moved me both to tears and laughter and not many books can do both, and a very good read! I liked that the story was easy to "see" when you read it. There was no problem picturing the cast of characters as they might appear from the descriptions and words used. Another thing that was fun, was that it read like you were sitting down with the narrator and he was sharing a great story with you. Definitely not pretentious, and quite humorous in parts (more than a few out-loud chuckles found... More > a remark from my Bubba, "like what ARE you reading?" The pace of the story was good. Didn't seem to be any awkward pauses in the thought strings, and the story progressed quite logically. I like surprises, and it's very hard to surprise a serious reader . . . this one had a few (for me), and THAT alone made it worth a read. The worst thing about the book? It ended WAY too soon . . . I was so wrapped up in the story, I wanted to know MORE about these people AFTER the last page. When you reach that final line, you find yourself thinking you "know" who they are, and you care about their life and so wish to make sure in your own mind that everything went well for them -- i.e., you want some closure to a few of the unknowns -- and that's all I'll say about that, too, . In conclusion -- Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it. They all go hand in hand. I highly recommend it, and I KNOW it will be worth it, because it DEFINITELY was for me.< Less
