Format: Paperback
I have to admit, I'm still yet to read the very first Terminator novelization, but considering it is also written by Randall Frakes, it might be something I have to buy/read as soon as. (There's also one by Shaun Hutson, if you're interested - however I don't know what the difference is between the two.)

What I loved about this book is that, even though it's only 240 pages, I found it to be a very dense 240 pages. There's so much description in it, and there's also more of an insight into the characters, that didn't come across as so in the movie. Rather than just being a bare bones cash-in, like so many novelizations can be, this is a wonder to read, and makes me interested in watching all the Terminator films again - back to back.

The description of some of the scenes is absolutely immense, including the motorbike/truck chase when the Terminators first find John Connor, there is a sentence where a normal person would describe it as a crash, the author describes it as an "earth shattering orgasm", which just blew my mind. That is a particular one that stands out for me, the scene where I knew that this novelization was going to be one of the best. Certain scenes are also extended - the introduction is extended past what it is in the movie, and there's a couple of extended/additional scenes. Especially ones where we see what is going on in the characters heads, which cannot come across in the film. There's more of an insight into the mind of Dr Silberman, as well as an insider's account of when the Terminator first walks into the bar. There's also more about what makes Miles Dyson tick, and his home life as well. There is also an extra bit, which wasn't in the second film but was included in the third film.

Yeah , it`s all coming back now . I was very young when I first read this and I am not a novel reader , mostly text books , manuals and pop psychology . The movie , I had seen and was awaiting for release , and this kept me going .There is much more in depth analysis of the characters in the movie so complements the film .I will be buying this gem next week .

Better than the movie! 31 Oct. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The thing i loved about this book was that it was more than what you saw in the movie.

Not only was it well enough written to vividly project an image in my head, but it also delved deeper into the story than the movie did.

I have read several movie book tie-ins, and most of them bored me, due to me already knowing whats going to happen since i generally see the movies first. Well i have seen the Terminator 2 movie at least 20 times on dvd. And yet this book totally entrenched me.

This is an example of how the book version can be better than the movie version.

So much more insight into the characters 5 Sept. 2013

Normally, most novelizations are lifted straight from the screenplay, without any additional extras, and you can normally zip through them in hours, rather than days, particularly if you know the movie well. I was expecting to read this in a couple of hours, but instead it took me a little over 48 hours, and I found myself completely sucked into the world of Sarah and John Connor and the Terminator. I almost wish I had read them in order now, rather than reading the second one, simply because I hadn't bought the first one yet. I'm also surprised there was only one other review for this - it definitely deserves many, many more 5-star reviews, and well done to Randall Frakes, for turning what I was expecting to be a simplistic book, into a mind blowing version of an equally brilliant film.
