“Resurrect” by David E. Stevens


Some books make better movies than books, and “Resurrect” falls into that category.  I can honestly say I neither liked nor disliked this book; however, I do believe I’d love the movie.   The book is about a test pilot who crashes a fighter plane into a neighborhood, but ejects too late.  He’s offered an opportunity to begin a new life and mission but he will be dead to everyone he knows.   Having no other choice if he wants to live, he accepts the new deal only to discover his mission is to protect humanity from the end of the world.

I was impressed by the reviews on the cover suggesting this book was “fast-paced”, “thrilling”, and, most interesting, “one of the most interesting books I have ever read.”  Okay.  He doesn’t read many books.   Granted, once you get past the first several chapters, it’s easier to keep going.  Whatever you are expecting at the end probably won’t happen.   I wish it had.

The author, David E. Stevens, was a Navy fighter pilot who test-piloted F-18s, led classified programs and served as the Strike Operations Officer for the Persian Gulf during Desert Storm.   He put a lot of his knowledge and imagination into this book.  Parts of the book were intriguing and fascinating and will make a great movie someday for someone willing to put it all together.

If you are or have been a pilot or aspiring to become a pilot, you will more than likely enjoy this book as some of the blurbs on the cover suggest.  If you have no interest in military and government thrillers, you will probably not enjoy this book.   I usually speed through books, but this book was difficult to read and took me longer than usual.
