5.0 out of 5 stars Action-packed and entertaining, but also ambitious and pretty deep.
By
Ryan
This review is from: BLUE: A story of extraordinary courage (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed Blue. It's about characters who're fighting for freedom, for dignity. The story is larger than life, but the characters are very human and relatable. The whole thing really moves and has a huge number subplots that all come together elegantly. Its grandiose ambition, which it pretty remarkably manages to fulfill -- is to create an epic mythology that encompasses the reality of the African American experience and contextualizes the ugliness and the pain and abuse in that experience in a way that allows for mythological transcendence. And although it's pretty clean, and the oppressive violence portrayed is minimal (considering), there's nothing in it that's at odds with the reality of American racial insanity -- and in fact it feels well-aligned with what's going on in current events. What I'm saying is it pulls off being a super-entertaining superhero story (with impossibly smart people doing impossibly smart things and all that) with a worldview that could lead American (and African American) culture in a positive direction. It is a Myth with a capital "M." And it's a lot of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Master Work!
By Amazon Customer
This review is from: BLUE: A story of extraordinary courage
Walter Jones is a master storyteller who creates deeply textured narratives that entertain, intrigue and inform. His dedication to the art of fiction is obvious on every page of BLUE.

He has written one of the rare books available on Amazon that has received, to date, a five star rating from every person who has reviewed it. I hope his publishers see the great potential here for a movie adaptation somewhere down the line.

I had the honor of being asked by him to read an early draft of this excellent novel and I know the years of hard work he put into it. In the years since, we have lost touch, for which I am, sadly, totally to blame. In so doing I lost someone more brother than friend.

I could not be more proud of his achievement. It is a testament to his inspiration, his passion and his perseverance. I look forward to his next novel. Until that time, Eustace. Until that time… https://www.amazon.com/BLUE-extraordinary-courage-Walter-JONES-ebook/dp/B00IDW2QNQ

Three Thumbs Up for "BLUE", April 26, 2014

This review is from: BLUE: A story of extraordinary courage (Kindle Edition)
I had sooo much fun reading this book. The build up of the settings and character relationships are meticulous; I mean the author doesn't miss a single detail. I appreciate his effort, at some points in the story, to just list the information necessary to maintain the story's continuity in less than a paragraph at the end of a chapter, rather than going off on a whole unnecessary tangent.

This story is about the "big picture" with regard to the "Black" dilemma. Jones never (except during one scene in the Southern US) mentions racism or offers blame for the current position of Blacks to any other racial or political group. As a radical myself, I learned much and gained new perspective through his approach.

You have to be pretty socially savvy to get the most out of reading this story because the author seldom states the obvious (another element that was appreciated). In the end it all comes down to this: The devil is obviously very busy everyday trying to entrap and use us against one another, but we all have a choice to follow the righteous path and what if everyone did their part?

This is a beautifully crafted and extremely imaginative story that I would recommend to anyone with even a partially open mind. A safe read for youth, as there are little to no vulgarities, just good 'ol [black] magic.  https://www.amazon.com/BLUE-extraordinary-courage-Walter-JONES-ebook/dp/B00IDW2QNQ

My New Favorite Author!!!  BLUE WALTER JONES
By Retired Chicago Teacher
This review is from: BLUE: A story of extraordinary courage (Kindle Edition)
I cannot believe that this is this author's first book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from cover-to-cover. It took me through an extraordinary journey that I had never been before. I enjoyed the way the author brought the the characters to life. They were not portrayed as your stereotypical "Black & African" characters.....they were proud, intelligent, brave people, who were interesting and extremely likable. This author showed the Black & African reality in an extremely positive and human light throughout this book and it made me proud. These characters could have been my family, that's how much I related to them. I really liked the way the author did not use vulgar language to portray the character's emotions. He told a story without the typical vulgarity and explicit sexual language that you see in books and hear on TV today. I could confidently recommend this to a teenager without a problem. They would also learn a little bit of history in the process.
I also enjoyed the supernatural theme that bound the characters together and the way the characters were intertwined throughout the decades. Twists and turns throughout. When I thought I had something figured out, I found out I was wrong and it made me even more intrigued.
Oprah Winfrey, you should check this book out! I would love to see this on the big screen. With today's technology I can only imagine how it would bring this book to life and be a blockbuster!!
Hat's off to you, Mr. Jones. Thank you for this very entertaining book. Looking forward to your next one.https://www.amazon.com/BLUE-extraordinary-courage-Walter-JONES-ebook/dp/B00IDW2QNQ
