Format: Mass Market Paperback
Well, it was bound to be brilliant, but for those of you who read the first, you can immediately tell it's written by a different author. There's a lot more funny than the first one and to me it reads more like a fanfic than the first one did. Still pretty awesome though. However, because of how it was written, it did make me sort of have a teensy bit less enthusiasm about the film. This could be because I read the first one after I watched the film, but who knows. It does promise to be an awesome film though, and Pepperony fans, wait for the last paragraph of page 291, and make sure there's no one around to get their ears blown out.

What I loved about it was there was a LOT more in-depth stuff about Tony's past, with his father. And the relationship between Tony and Rhodey since "I am Iron Man."

All in all, I'd give this a 9/10, purely because of the writing style being so, SO different to Peter David. Gotta say though, when it's funny, it's hilarious.

I had been anticipating getting this book for ages but I don't even recall ever finishing it, as it was too bad to bear. I could have written better myself, and I really do mean that.

A Formed, Not Forged, Story 12 May 2010
By Wayfarer4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This adaptation of the screenplay of the movie of the same name is a rather difficult read. Not a terrible read, but one that you should take on with understanding. First, the screenplay is apparently either an early one, or based heavily upon the early trailers and teasers that have been noted ever since this movie received a launch date. Second, where the last several Marvel movie tie ins have been written by Peter David, this one is by Alexander Irvine. While not knocking the author, this novel dwells far more heavily on making comic book technology sound feasible, without simplifying it with the standard science fiction technobabble. (A scene that lasts for less than three minutes on screen takes up an entire chapter in the book as every element, structure, and geometric configuration of a device are deconstructed for the reader.) Again, this is not horrible, but it does end up distracting. My third issue stands with the almost ping pong ball effect of the storyline written here. While the primary elements of the movie are here, there are entire areas glossed over or skimmed past, and the final scene is written with a deus ex machina approach. Either major points were not given to the author, or it felt better to have it end this way for some reason.

On the other hand, it does read quite quickly, with my own original perusal running about an hour of reading time. It does have most of the major points in the movie noted, and the difficult task of converting the major special effects moments to page are bravely attempted. An attempt is made to tie the two novelizations together with hints of a greater criminal behind the scenes watching over everything. And the backgrounds on some of the characters are quite engaging and well written.

Great Adaptation! 30 July 2011

It was similar enough to the movie to be an adaptation, but it also had several novel-only scenes I really enjoyed, and the writing is superb!

Iron Man will he make it 1 April 2010
By Richard Petsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
It is a well balanced story that has more muscle than the first one and gives us a guide into what more(Iron Man)can and cannot do. The action is more condensed. Much better than the first story. The villain is a Russian. His name is Ivan Vanko. He has a grudge against Tony Stark. This is the main part of the story that has great balance in my view. I recommend this story very much. I will go see the movie. I look forward to it.

A very hard read....... 10 Mar 2011
By Donald Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had a very hard time reading this book, I started and stopped 3 times, before I finally made my way through it.
It is a bare bones book and unless you are up on Iron Man, you will be lost and if you are an Iron Man fan, you
will not be happy with the way the story is written.
Even the action scenes were not laid out very well.
Tony Stark would not be pleased.
