A Review of Michael Savage's 'A Time for War'

By Sabin Geyman

In 'A Time for War', Michael Savage’s wake-up call about the Communist Chinese threat to America, the ethno-botanist-turned-radio-host serves up an absorbing story of civilization-butting intrigue. In a nutshell, the point of the story, based largely in fact, is that the Chinese Communists (Chicoms) are not so much a potential threat as they are a real, military-grade enemy that is operating now, real-time, and in the present moment.

Really a fun book and better writing than I expected. Recommended. It also gives a nice window into Savage's life, as he writes himself into the novel.
Jim A
A pretty fast paced thriller.

Should be a hit with the Sinophobes, especially after the recent revelations of cyber attacks by the Chinese.
Steven Gilchrist
It was a fast paced book and well thought out plot. Worth the read just for the fact that the Chinese government is trying to block its advertising.
The author is indeed the controversial, yet very intelligent and street smart radio talk show personality, known publicly as “Michael Savage”. His real name is Michael Weiner, of Russian Jewish descent, having been born in The Bronx. Among his academic achievements are degrees in biology and nutrition. Although I have heard him speak less than a handful of times, it was his tangible, native intelligence that aroused my interest in reading this fast paced novel. Unbeknownst to me previously, was ...more

A helicopter carrying a squad of Seals plummets to earth in
Afghanistan, a car driven by a couple of FBI agents tailing
a suspicious vehicle is rendered immobile in SF, and the body
of a Chinese agent is found floating miles from the Golden
Gate bridge after being fed to sharks. Only Jack Hatfield a
popular TV host hounded from his position by left wing forces
in the media for speaking the truth suspects the danger of this
conspiracy. He receives help from a young woman staffer at the
Office of Nava

When one pictures the hero of a novel from the thriller genre, one doesn't typically picture a political TV show host/pundit fulfilling the role, but Michael Savage managed to pull it off with his Jack Hatfield protagonist--a thinly-veiled fictitious version of Savage himself. A bit of a shameless and self-serving example life imitating art, perhaps, but I don't hold that against the author, and it's certainly a lot of fun and never has a dull moment.
I have never read anything by Michael Savage nor is government thriller my favorite genre, however I enjoyed this book enough that I would try another of his stories.

It has terroristic violence, revenge and a mild love story. Mr. Savage is not afraid to allow a good guy to die and I resect that.
Lynette Barfield
I liked the plot, characters and technology about EMPs. I thought the book was a bit wordy and would have been better with more editing. I found myself losing interest until something plot related happened.
Nancy Anderson
He can talk ( I know from his radio program) & he can write!
Doc & Maggie Yu are the action people.
Dover & Jack are the intellectual MCs.
Very nice, lovely ending. Well done MS!
I thoroughly enjoyed A Time For War. It was very enlightening. Exciting! Dr. Savage is a great author of fiction and non-fiction. I highly recommend any of his works.
Good fiction for Savage who is a real gentleman & knows how to treat the ladies. His book was macho & sexy without being trashy sleaze.
Mike Heller
Much better than his last novel, more parrellels to the main character and Michaels real life
