Publisher's Summary

From Michael Savage, The New York Times best-selling author of Abuse of Power and radio host of The Savage Nation, comes a powerful new thriller.

A Chinook helicopter carrying a squad of Navy Seals suddenly plummets to earth in Afghanistan. A car driven by FBI agents tailing a suspicious vehicle is mysteriously rendered immobile in San Francisco. The body of a Chinese agent is found floating miles from the Golden Gate Bridge after being fed to sharks.

In A Time for War, the U.S. is under secret attack and only Jack Hatfield, a popular television host hounded from his position by left-wing forces in the media for speaking the truth, suspects the danger of this lethal conspiracy. With the help of Dover Griffith, an idealistic young woman staffer at the Office of Naval Intelligence, Hatfield pursues a trail leading to a billionaire American electronics entrepreneur who has sold out his own country with the help of officials at the highest level of the American government. As enemy operatives plan a two pronged attack that will disarm the American military and release a deadly toxin killing hundreds of thousands of civilians, Hatfield and Dover race to locate this new Ground Zero and save an unsuspecting county.

    Story
    "This Book is Pure Savage"
    What made the experience of listening to A Time for War the most enjoyable?

    If you listen to Savage on the radio, you'll really enjoy this book. The story is right off the front page of today's newspapers- absolutely plausible and written by a real patriot for all of us real patriots who know who the good guy is and which side we're on.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was gripping and the characters credible. If you're not careful, you may actually learn a thing or two from the edgy dialogue between the characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene depicting the crashing helicopter at the beginning of the book was awesome- you could almost imagine being among those heroic American special forces as they were shot down. At least in this fictional account, we can blame the Communist Chinese instead of our own government- the most likely culprit in the real-life shootdown.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Made in China" isn't just cheap, it's down-right deadly!

    Story
    "A Dud"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Barely; the narrator made everything sound "vanilla" and there was little excitement, despite some poignant moments. The characters were poorly and incompletely developed and Savages' repeated introduction of dogs in the story added nothing constructive. Savage should stick to political and economic commentary. His novel stinks. His minimal knowledge of martial arts, sharks and inter-personal violence was obvious and detracted from my becoming absorbed into the story.


    Has A Time for War turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I don't know.


    What about Peter Larkin’s performance did you like?

    Very little. His voice was limp and intonation was of a reader, not a relator of a plot.


    Do you think A Time for War needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Absolutely not.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe China does pose a threat to the United States in a military sense and Savage's book does not relate the why's very well or how we could avert having China's military modernization be less of a danger to our people.

    Story
    "Savage why?"

    I have been waiting for this book after finishing and enjoying Abuse of Power. Savage is a great writer and has an amazing mind. Even though the story is filled with preposterous events his amazing mind makes them almost enjoyable to listen to.

    A week after finishing the book I am learning Chinese and not worried about the Red Chinese, despite the books intentions. He makes the Chinese the ones that control the Jihadis which is not true. Google Khojaly to see how anti-Jihadi the Chinese have been.

    It is too bad this book is a distraction from the true enemy to freedom. Google video Muslim Patrol to see what I think is coming to America in the next couple of years. Of course not all Muslims are Jihadi. A large majority of Muslims do not follow Sharia, which can create Sharia Patrols and Jihadis. Unfortunately, Savage does not go down the direction he did in Abuse of Power.
    If you have not year read/listened to Abuse of Power I would ASAP. It is a 5 star book IMHO. Unfortunately this book is not. If you are a big Savage Fan you might enjoy Time for War for his great writing. But if you have not read/listened to Abuse of Power it is on audible and I can not recommend it higher: http://mobile.audible.com/productDetail.htm?asin=B005LXUYXY&s=s I am going to try to return this outlandish book. It is well written but I hope he does not go through this rabbit hole on his radio show.

    PS I am not Chinese and I have no ties to China but I think this new path is wrong and reckless. I am going to hear what my Mom thinks of this book before I return it. Audibles return policy is amazing that is why I recommend it so much but I don't want to abuse it. I think this book is preposterous enough for it to apply. I wish I was warned and did not waste 10 and a half hours but I am going to see what my Mom says.

    "An excellent story for these times."
    Where does A Time for War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up with the best.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I could not put down the player.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    While a really enjoyed the narrator's portrayal of foreign accents while speaking English I've found his pronunciation of Chinese words and phrases could have been a little better. I'm not talking the the correct tones that are a part of the Chinese langauge which is very hard and even I can't do a very good job at. I'm talking rhythm and confidence. Perhaps it only bothered me because I live in a Chinese speaking country right now and notice it. Other than that, I really enjoy Peter Larkin's Naration of Michael Savage Books in general. He channels the spirit and tone of Savage that I almost believe that I'm listening to his radio program. Good .Job overall, but a little listening to native speakers pronunciations the common phrases in the book may improve his narration while speaking actual foreigner words and phrases. Don't change a thing when it comes to speaking English with a foreign accent.
