First Blood unleashed the fury of Rambo’s rage. Now he is in prison for his one-man war against a small-town police chief. His former commanding officer, Colonel Trautman, arrives with a promise to release Rambo, with two important conditions. First, Rambo must return to the Vietnamese prison camp from which he escaped and find the missing Americans who are rumored to be prisoners there. The second condition? Don’t rescue the prisoners. Only bring back photos. Under no circumstances engage the enemy. For Rambo, the first part is difficult. But the second is impossible.

Narrator was fantastic. Didn't just read but really performed and didn't drag during the narration. the story was alright, taken from two different scripts written by other people. The author did an excellent job considering, even though this was originally his character, 1) this was not his story 2) certain things about the characters and their relationship had been changed from the first novel to the film realizations and 3) the limited time he had to write it in. I loved the way Morrell really fleshed out the characters. I love book Rambo!
This novelization of the movie script is amazingly creative, for moments, and unless you don't know it, makes you feel like the movie was based on the book and no the other way around as is the reality. Great book!!!
Not the best by any means, but certainly enjoyable.
The suspense and action
The Rambo character for sure - Once again, Eric Dove did a great job at making Rambo sound just like Sylvester Stallone did in the movies.
Action packed thriller!
If you enjoyed the Rambo Film series, it's almost a certainty that you'll enjoy the book as well.
