An Outstanding testament to a wonderful author!! I first read this book almost immediately following the release of the movie. I wanted more! I got more! This novel, the story of John Rambo, makes the movie seem like a mediocre copy. Although the movie kind of follows the book, in no way could a motion picture come close to exposing the inner feelings, the happenings and actions of this man and all that was going on around him. Anyone who reads this book will never be disappointed when thinking back on it. Myself, I have judged most of the books I have read to this wonderful tome.
And a side note... the follow-up movie tie-in books were written after the screenplay for the movies were written, but they are written by David Morrell also. Read these 2 books (Rambo II & III ) and enjoy the writings of a master storyteller. The books are so much more excellent than the movie.
Lastly.... if you enjoy ... or even if you haven't ... read the rest of Mr. Morrell's books. I assure you that they will be placed at the top echelon of your favorite books of all time. Mr. Morrell IS really that good!!!

Interesting story of how First Blood came to be. I was hoping to hear more about the actual movie and how the author was involved with its production.
Good fast read, definitely recommend.
