My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When I received this book from Fred Kerns, I was anxious to review it because of the fact it mentioned the G.I. Joes. Let’s face it, the title alone should get everyone’s attention. Most of us who grew up in the 80’s loved watching the G.I. Joes as cartoons, and some of us even had the action figures. They were just as big as Barbie was. So, as respect to the eighties, and the real G.I. Joes, and the Military itself, I couldn’t help but give respect to Fred and this book: “G.I. Joe Reactivate.”
The cover was not what I had expected, I in fact immediately thought, ‘Wait, this just might be a more futuristic endeavor.” Just from the take on the cover. But that was just a guess, I was not sure was I was in store for.
Reading this, I was disappointed to find that the G.I. Joes has disband, and were now being hunted. I was astounded. I was picturing Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, and I just don’t see them giving up. But maybe this is much farther into the future, and those hunks are no longer alive.
Then again, further into the book, you learn that ‘living legends’ join forces with the new G.I. Joe unit to rebuild and transform it into a new unit, calling it the ‘Omega Section.’ This is where the legends, like Sly and Arnie do come into play, and make something into nothing, and make it even better then it was before.
Cobra, is rising again, determined to see to it to ruin the Omega section, and take them down. Cobra doesn’t want anything like the Joes or the Omega’s to be here, to better anything or anyone. Cobra just wants to do what it always has, ruined everything and caused death and destruction.
Cobra is a group of terrorists determined to take down, Omega and anyone else that plans to get in their way. The only thing Cobra didn’t plan for, is that Omega is now stronger, and wiser, and intends on keeping Cobra at bay, if not causing them to cease to exist if at all possible.
Omega plans to give Cobra the battle of their life. But Cobra doesn’t plan on going down with ease, and if at possible, they plan to take down whatever else gets in their way too.
This book is a small novella meant to keep you entertained, and wanting to remember everything about the eighties and the G.I. Joes. After all, they matter, as does all of the Military.
This book is an excellent five star read, short and sweet, but right on point. I enjoyed the story line, and spot on it was, reminiscing and making the Joes into something new, and battling with the continuing group of Cobra terrorists. I give “G.I. Joe Reactivated” five stars, and think Fred Kerns is a author work checking out, if you haven’t already.
