Bad SciFi June 26 1998
By Harvey Bennett (harvey@bennettengineering.com) - Published on Amazon.com
If you liked Encounter With Tiber and Patton's Spaceship, don't even think about buying this book. I liked all the timeline wars books, so I got this one. Unlike a previous reviewer, I read the whole thing but by the end, I was sorry the hero survived into at least one more book.
quintessential Barnes, but alloyed with a lot of hackery Dec 20 2004
By John M. Leigh - Published on Amazon.com
The cliches keep coming, especially in the first section, in which our impossibly noble and preternatually gifted protagonist, after meeting a mysterious Asian martial arts master and teaching some kids a valuable lesson, dashes off to his appointment with Destiny, in the form of one of those mysterious pseudo-scientific experiments that had already been done to death in the thirties. Once we get to the action, however, I'd say the adventure story is pretty OK, and it's interesting to see the ways that Barnes keeps coming back, even when he's obviously just kicking something together for a quick paycheck, to his recurring themes of rape (and the horrors of war generally), the virtues of practicing the martial arts, and how profiteering jerks can so often ruin it for the rest of us. I guess this is all more or less moot, since the book's out of print, but my point, ultimately, is that if you find this cheap somewhere, it's probably still worth picking up.
Fighting for his soul. Sept. 2 2001
By Anthony Hinde - Published on Amazon.com
I'm not averse to good military fiction, and the Time Raider books are defiantly in this category, but when a time traveling, spiritual element are added, you get magic. What if reincarnation was real but instead of moving forward, as you progressed toward enlightenment, you had to go back through your past lives on a near impossible mission to redeem your soul.
Dan Samson is a 20th century man who has finally passed a moral threshold, earning the right to make just such a backward journey. He dies and wakes as a past version of himself, usually selfish, petty and often evil. In every case Dan seems to arrive just in time to realize what crap his past incarnation has dug himself into but also in time to have a slim chance of turning things around. The other common thread is that he always seems to die in battle. Fate plays a big part in his career choices, friends and particularly, his enemies. You see, Dan is not the only one with past lives.
John Barnes' writing is tight and riveting but it's the ideas that make his books special. Each of us struggles with inner demons but nothing like Dan's. He is a good man who must constantly work to convert garbage into gladiolas despite the hatred and entrenched expectations of everyone around him. I have often wanted to go back and do things differently, through Time Raider we get to share in the ultimate extension of that desire.
Not the real John Barnes June 5 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
If you are considering getting this book under the pretense that this is written by the same guy who wrote Caesars bike and all those other great Sci-Fi books, it isn't. No- this guy is a really, really, bad writer who happens to have the same name.
It was like reading something a 12 year old might put together if you asked him to write a war story.
I am posting this because I made the mistake of buying this and I don't want others to make the same mistake, wasting their money.
