4.0 out of 5 stars An absolute gem!
I think readers will either 'get' this or they won't - if you do, you'll recognise it for a stroke of genius. Thought-provoking, original and supremely clever. For David's 'fans' a rare chance to see another aspect of this author's talent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crippled American 'golden boy' comes to terms with injury, 1 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Losers (Paperback)
The star suffers from a horrific car accident, leaving him unable to walk without crutches. He retreats to small town America to come to terms with his injury, and gets in to the habit of watching the local 'losers' from his roof top retreat. Becomes more involved with them over time, comes to terms with new life etc. etc.. Actually quite a disturbing book - some of the images really stay with you, and the accident is dealt with without sentimentality or preaching about being a 'good little patient' - the impact is left largely to your own imagination, and is all the more powerful because of this. Well worth reading - not a book you'll forget in a hurry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Typical David Eddings, 10 Feb 2004
This review is from: The Losers (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is as far away from Fantasy as you can get but defiantly worth reading.
In reference to the title "The Losers" is that part of society that are in the social Security trap e.g. can't afford to give up social to get a job.
The books strong points are the narrator's study of these people and also his difficulties with the handicap of having one leg (result of a car accident).
There is an excellent and very unexpected 'twist' at the end of the book which I'll say nothing about.
