    One thought on “Rebirth”

    1. In short, this book sucked. There are spoilers for the book in the review, but they're things fans should know about before dropping any money or time on this waste of both.My primary grievances are the following: the stripping away of all emotional depth of the characters (and everything else) and ham-handedly leaving only the exaggerated emotional complexity of the original show, the removal of one of the primary themes (twins and using them as an insight into the nature of family) and replaci [...]

    2. Oh. I was really excited about this book. And then after I heard that Jarod's escape date had been changed twenty years, I had a bad feeling but I had faith. A friend loaned rebirth to me until I could order mine and now I'm not going to order this book at all. My friend was as disappointed as I am. This is difficult for me as a long time French fan. I wanted to at least rate the book two stars which means it was ok, but this book is not ok. This isn't even canon. This doesn't even seem like it' [...]

    3. This highly anticipated return didn't live up to the hype. It didn't even come close. As a long time fan, I'm very disappointed. The addition of new characters is frustrating, the writing leaves much to be desired. I wanted an ending, not to be strung along in this cash cow of innumerable series where the writers milk it for all it's worth and use fans to promote a product that is no longer relevant. There are no words to describe how disappointed and ashamed I am. This was no page turner, just [...]

    4. I've been a fan of the series since the premier of the pilot and was looking forward to a continuation of the series in any form. I think my hopes were too high, there was too much hype. I'm disappointed with this first book and will not be purchasing another pretender rebirth novel or future graphic novel. There were always issues with continuity and editing, and unrealistic characterisations on the show but I thought the book would be different, I thought the writing would be more mature, desc [...]

    5. I CAN'T BELIEVE I WAITED OVER 12 YEARS FOR THIS This is a sad day for fans of The Pretender. The creators have tainted the memory with rebirth. I'm heart broken with disappointment. I read some of the other low rating reviews and didn't want to believe the book could be that bad. The book is worse than I feared. I don't just "not like it" as the one star suggests. I hate the book. I've been a fan of The Pretender since its pilot episode, I've watched waited and I and every single TP fan deserve [...]

    6. I am so disappointed. The Rebirth storyline is not a continuation of the series as we were led to believe it would be for a decade but an underhanded marketing scheme $$$$ ching ching $$$$ to attract a generation of new fans and alienates us who have been here from day one. The show had issues, tropes, unbelievable leaps of logic, stringy cheese and so forth but the show also had some charm and at least it had a kinda interesting Sydney. I was saddened to see these characters written as cliches. [...]

    7. In short,everything about this book sucks! The writing, the book cover design, all of it sucks!!!! This is one of those sad moments in literature when television/film exceeds the book of same title in quality, characters, plot, action, everything. I'll start with the title. Rebirth 1.a new or second birth 2.a renewed existence, activity, or growth; renaissance or revival. The creators promised a continuation, to give this series that is so dear to us a fitting and rewarding conclusion as seen he [...]

    8. It isn't canon. It isn't good. It's the pulling of teats essentially the fans for everything they can. We were supposed to be given an ending more than 10 years ago. Here we are still waiting. The biggest dupes ever. The men can't write. Seriously. I've read higher quality fanfic. The blurb is bs. This isn't sleek. It's nothing like Jason Bourne apologies to Bourne fans. Jarod does nothing profound and doesn't even run far. He could leave the country. He's stupid. Some delusional fan said the sh [...]

    9. This is not good. One, it wasn't the continuation I was led to believe (by the creators) that it would be. I have to say that I don't appreciate misleading tactics and all in the name of making money. I was fooled. It won't happen again. Aside from that, the deviation from the timeline is only a minor grievance. The writing is not up to par, fell well below Pretender standards! A life long fan, I was lost with this story line and my friends who are new to the Pretender thought it was a pain to r [...]

    10. This book was such a disappointment. I'm a huge fan of the original series, so when I heard that the creators were starting a book series, I was very excited. However, I didn't realize that they weren't picking up where the series left off - they were rebooting the idea. I thought I would still give it a try. Unfortunately, this book lacks all of the charm that the series had. It is not well-written. The characters turn into cliches. And why is Broots missing?! I almost find it hard to believe t [...]

    11. Disappointed, really. I was looking forward to this, to getting the characters I loved back, but I just couldn't hear their voices. The editing was also off putting with missing words and bad sentence structure.

    12. This is my first ever rating/review. I'm a life long fan of the Pretender (or was), even when the show shifted and the inner sense invaded Miss Parker's mind (all of sudden she hears voices and the phenomenon is completely forgotten by the very next movie AND btw voices in the head is a mental illness not the stuff that composes sci-fi Pretender never was sci-fi) even after the IOTH, through all of the inconsistencies and contradictions but Reboot killed it for me. The characters in the book are [...]

    13. Like many, was incredibly excited to hear of the return of our beloved Pretender. Then was anxious about how it was to be achieved. There was much speculation about how to fill in the gap, where it would go, would it be the same Pretender that we all love? Admittedly, I approached this with some small trepidation and found that I was literally knocked out of my socks with how good it was.The story was immediately engaging and all so familiar, and it spun out in my head as I was reading like an e [...]

    14. As a life-long fan of the Pretender, I was ecstatic when I received the news that it was coming back- and in novel (and graphic novel!) form, no less! I ordered both the book and Kindle versions and settled in for a good read and Rebirth surely did not disappoint! The book was everything I'd hoped for- and more. After 12 years without the series I loved, it was like coming home again to old friends. I really appreciated the time jump from 1963 (in the show) to 1983 (in the book) because I could [...]

    15. I've read thousands of books, dozens of genres, and this is by far the worst book I've ever read. I know many fans are upset with those of us who give honest ratings and opinions, they are the same fans who rated this book a five before they even read it. Very telling. They are also the ones that want to be included in the book as characters, want to hitch a ride to fame and be "friends" with the creators. Whatever. I'd rather be honest. This is not my show, my Pretender, this is not the continu [...]

    16. Very disappointing. Wanted to see it start where the movies left off. Just a rehash of the series. Disappointing.

    17. The Pretender is one of my favorite TV series of all time. I am sad to report that it does not seem that the book series will follow suit. After being a dedicated fan of the show for almost half my life now, I practically heard a hallelujah chorus went the first announcements for the books were made. I was every manner of excited. Still bitter all these years later after the unfair cancelling- I thought this would be our chance as fans to finally get some closure, some answers! Unfortunately, it [...]

    18. After 12 years since we last saw these characters, The Pretender is reborn and brought to the present with a renewed strength and tenacity.Follow Jarod's quest for the truth and for the secret to his very existence, as he discovers the world for the first time and tries to make amends for the wrongs in the world, but always one step ahead of the Centre, the corporation who isolated him since he was a child.Miss Parker and Sydney are still hot on Jarod's trail. They want him alive - preferably.I [...]

    19. I was excited to read this, and continue Jarod's adventures from The Pretender. However, despite being written by the show's creators, this book does little better than a fan fiction story. In general, the book is a rehash/reimagination of the first episode of the show. Unfortunately, in my opinion, a variety of the additions detract from the original concept of the show. For instance: an entire segment from the point of view of an anthropomorphic rat.I was hoping Craig and Steven would tie off [...]

    20. I'll preface my review with this: I've been a Pretender fan since the original pilot aired on NBC, back in 1996. I am quite the super-fan: My very first website I made as a teen in school was a Pretender fan site. I bought the entire series on DVD the second it became available. Before that, I had video taped every episode off of syndicated re-runs on VHS. When I got married, the first show I insisted my wife watch was The Pretender. I don't think there are many bigger fans of The Pretender than [...]

    21. I am a huge fan of the television show, so I was hoping this would have been better, but I had a few issues. The introduction and subsequent descriptions of Miss Parker actually made me uncomfortable reading them. She was described in a way that I'm assuming was supposed to be sexy, but it came off as almost perverted. I felt a little concerned for the safety of the actress Andrea ParkerBut my main issue was that this is an origin story of sorts. I'm not sure if I would call it a reboot, aside f [...]

    22. As I thought, once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. It just feels good to get the characters I loved back. And to discover new characters. Rebirth is perfect for longtime fans, but it's also written for newcomers. So whether you previously knew the universe or not, the story captures you from the first page to the last. And even though not that hard to figure out how it'll end if you're attentive to details, it's ok. It just makes me look forward to the next book even more.The Prete [...]

    23. To be honest, I was hoping for more of a continuation of the series than a full-fledged reboot. I'm saddened to think that we're losing so many of the experiences and relationships that developed during the television series and already miss some of the main characters who seem to have been replaced, like Broots and Angelo. I hope that there is some way to tie what many of us who watched the Pretender loved about the TV show into future books/graphic novels.

    24. This my first actual review, I just finished this book and it remained true to the show. I am a huge fan of the show I wan't sure when i ordered the book from them if it was going to keep me a fan or loose it, but I was very impressed it was more than advertised and I loved how they updated the story! I am super exited to order and read the the next book!

    25. I really enjoyed this reboot of "The Pretender" series. I'm not one of those fanois to scream about "canon," so the deviations from timeline don't bother me. This is a Jarod storyline that really could've happened at any point during the television series, or before or after. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!

    26. Everyone can imagine a fan's surprise when they learn the series they loved so dearly is returning. It was a hyped return only to learn the return would be a novel, not film. I was disappointedny of us were, but it didn't lower my expectations. I've now read both novels in the series and have given up on the series as it's been four years since the second novel. The primary grievance is the reboot itself. Instead of staying the course, they tried to fix something that wasn't broken when all we w [...]
