    One thought on “Redbeard”

    1. Red Will Donahoe is called a barbarian by various characters and by the back cover text This description shorts the situation Donahoe is a savage He is ruthless, brutal, disruptive, angry, narcissistic, sociopathic, blustery, and without any sort of redeeming feature His unlikeability is cemented early when he becomes the youngest rapist that his people had ever encountered The first question the reader has is why this person was allowed to survive adolescence Why, in fact, Gareth Cole, leader o [...]

    2. This is one of Mike Resnick s earliest books, evidently before he started going by Mike professionally, and it shows Though full of memorable characters, from the elusive mutant Gareth Cole to the savage barbarian Red Will Donahoe to the wickedly logical Baron Andrew Craston, the story is still a little rough around the edges The ending feels rushed and I had trouble wrapping my head around Cole s true motivations Our story takes place in post apocalyptic New England, during a war being waged be [...]

    3. Redbeard is a strange story It s hard to describe how strange it is, but what makes it strange isn t mutants or Normans or post apocalyptic New England, but the fact that its incredibly predictable but you never find yourself predicting it The characters are too busy talking about the motivations of other characters and throw you off the real scent, even though you definitely Guessed Right the First Time So you find yourself oddly perplexed when the event you expected happens and you still didn [...]

    4. This was the first science fiction book I ever read and in that light it will always have a special place in my heart But I have reread it a couple of times since then and I know now that it is a trite book taking from better works It s a fast read and without context you may even enjoy it, but this should be very low on your to read list.

    5. Although the author has publicly lamented this novel s publication for years, I still like it It was written long before he became a major force in the field and is certainly crude and rough in spots, but it has a lot of enthusiasm and fun adventure going for it It s just the kind of book to pass a lazy summer afternoon by the lake.

    6. I mentally checked out of this one when the protagonist, for lack of a better word, rapes a woman in the first few sentences I realize evil people exist in the world, but have no desire to read about them, even less to have them glorified by novels such as this.
