The following paperback novel is based upon the episodes Knight of the Phoenix part 1 and 2 of the classic 1980s television series Knight Rider. The episode was written by Glen A. Larson who is also its creator. The above novel is a further elaboration of that pilot episode.

The story of Micheal Knight and how he got his amazing car is the story that unfolds in this novel. At certain places it is painfully obvious that writing has been done in a hurried manner without paying much attention to det

This is a difficult one to review. It should seem obvious to many a novel like this isn't going to carry a great deal of substance. Recognizing that fact, I have to say this was a very fun read while making me feel nostalgic for the television show. As an author, Roger Hill makes this read very entertaining while offering some deeper characterizations to the story. For a fun, quick read I would highly recommend this. For an example of deep thought and examined philosophy, I might suggest people ...more

As a kid growing up, I've always been a fan of the heroic ideal--the idea that one person can come along and do the right thing just when it was needed most.
Growing up in the late '70's and '80's, television provided an almost never-ending array of these kinds of stories.
I was a fan of such shows like Wonder Woman, and the Incredible Hulk.
I absolutely adored the Six Million Dollar Man.
And while my friends at the time were going nuts over shows like The A-Team, my preference was for a different k

Nykyään kun törmää kanavilla surffaillessa Ritari Ässään, haluaa päästä tuosta nuoruuden sankarista, idolista ja esikuvasta äkkiä kirkuen karkueen. Nykyään katsottuna nuo tv-sarjan jaksot ovat kauheaa kakkapaskaa.
Siihen verrattuna tämä Ritari Ässän syntytarina kirjana luettuna oli huomattavasti viihdyttävämpi. Televisiosarjan kaksi ensimmäistä jaksoa niputettuna näppärään ja nopeasti etenevään nippuun paperia. Mainioutta.

Basically the plot of the book is the plot of the TV pilot. Written by Roger Hill its "co-written" by Glen A. Larson as his script is featured, Roger just fills in certain gaps and added a bit more to Michael Long's backstory. Having seen the pilot several times... I did have all the characters in my head pictured as the actors, naturally. KITT wasn't featured as much as the TV pilot.. ie the whole subplot with the wannabe car thieves is completely omitted from the book.

Fun mix of nostalgia and pulp adventure.

A dying millionaire believes one man can make a difference, so he gives a noble cop a talking, indestructible car.

A nice bit of macho fluff. Something to read after something dense and serious.
Makes me want to see if netflix has the TV show.
