I originally read part of this series years ago when they were originally published, but I lost track and was never able to acquire the remaining books in the series. Seeing this collection presented me with a nice opportunity to take a trip down memory lane and finally finish a story I wanted to finish years ago.
The story itself is very much a product of its era, and reads like a story from the 80’s. A bit progressive in some ways, but very much a stereotypical story from that era. The writing presents a plot line that is more complex than many stories from that era, and while woefully out of date today still presents an interesting read. Well worth the read if you have enjoyed seeing Rip Hunter in the recent runs of Booster Gold and wanted to learn more about who he is and where he comes from.
