Nicholas Linnear Novels | Eric Van Lustbader

This book was first published inso some of the references and language is a bit dated, yet pustbader no way does that detract from the power of this tale.

But when i started reading the next pages, i felt like am re-reading the same line and the same happened with the next pages and the next pages too: As an expert on this art he is drawn into the police investigation.

Nicholas Linnear Novels

At time the book is very neatly paced with great suspense and action and the se The story of half American and half Oriental For all his sadistic cruelty and obvious madness, I loved Saigo from his very first scenes and I think entire novels should have been dedicated to describing in detail just how he was broken and Still, why share this with the world?


We asked the author about his first exposure in that pre-boom period: Where you DO get a meaty role for an Asian actor is in alternate-reality dream casting of Saigo! We experience their relationship pretty completely, leaving us befuddled when, on day 2 or 3, I forgetthey squabble like an old married couple.

Overall it’s a pretty one-dimensional novel, the author has hardly a couple of points to write, but the repetition over the course of the novel sort of irritates you towards the end. In the Big Confrontation, the Hero and the Tycoon lure the Villain to a site of their choosing so as to surprise the Villain who doesn’t realize he’s being lured. And so has Death Here is the origin of Nicholas Linnear, half English, Half Oriental, who is about to enter a terrifying world of merciless assassins bound by the blackest codes of honour and skilled in the deadliest martial arts.

But wait, maybe this momentary flourish isn’t indicative of anything but a little “grab the reader with your ebullience” up front. The first time i read it as an ebook during my office hours and i really had to skip a lot of pages fearing someone might mis-interpret the sensual descriptions: On that particular point, I did notice is that the book blurb on the back cover really doesn’t do the book justice.

Nicholas Linnear 6 books. He has come to the US where he succeeded as an add man for a big corporation, but one day he just quits his position.

When he finally did let me read it I was blown away. Don’t get me started on that. Major plot flaws are no barrier here, either.

“THE NINJA” vs. “THE NINJA: The Movie”

Nobody would ever talk this way. He demonstrates a deep understanding in the differences between Eastern and Western cultures, and how those differences shape their people. When he first meets Nicholas their different attitudes to life spark off one another.

That’s why for this review I decided to re-read a novel that I remember being a favourite, The Ninja by Eric Lustbader. And harmony is what all people strive to achieve. It was only when he became a young man that he was drawn into the complexities of two very different cultures.

This was the era of Joel Grey in heavy yellow-face make-up playing an ancient kung-fu master in Remo Williams while Mako and Keye Luke sat home unemployed.

Lustbader tries to jump around with lots of different stories and tends to focus on these areas: I’d never even watched a Bruce Lee movie all the way through because martial arts never interested me very much.
