Books Reviews Anonymous



Conan the Barbarian indeed. Savage Swords is a parallel that draws from the comics.
As Gonan leads an expedition through the dangerous jungle, they find out precisely how dangerous.
It’s got lots of action and it’s not as sexual as I figured it would be. There’s an alpha male theme to be sure, but it’s not a domineering one. There’s not a lot of dialogue, so most of the tone comes through narration. The reader feels like a jungle observer watching from afar. The writing style is drawn-out and kind of flowery, in a way that oozes machismo. For the most part, it suits the narrative.
It was a quick read, designed to set up their own, custom world. Perhaps the serial will surprise readers with a unique take on an older series.
