First Blood

25th March 2006

First BloodFirst Blood is an under-statement. This book is better called Everyone’s Blood because basically everyone dies a really gruesome death in this story. The basic plot is that Rambo, a disturbed, homeless Vietnam vet decides he’s sick of being pushed from town to town, and decides to stand his ground against a stubborn Chief of Police. Of course, much violence ensues, which leads to even more violence, etc. I haven’t ever seen a Rambo movie, so I don’t know how the plot of the book compares with the movies. Morrell’s signature highly-trained, survivalist main character is present in Rambo, but there’s none of the espionage or horror elements that his more recent books have included.
