4.0 out of 5 stars SMASHING READ!, 4 Jun 2003
This review is from: The Hulk (Paperback)
I've been a Hulk fan since the 70's and have been looking forward to this film for a long while. I stumbled over a copy of this novel based on the screenplay and wasn't sure what to expect. I was hooked within the first few pages - The story has been brought right up to date with no Gamma Ray bomb, no Rick Jones, no back-drop of the cold war, but plenty of inner-trauma for an Asperger-like Bruce Banner estranged from his dad and unable to get it together with Betty Ross because of repressed emotions (!). There's a strong story line and great descripive writing to make up for the lack of images. Just like the Spider-man and Daredevil novels-based-on-the screenplay I recommend this as a fun, absorbing read with or without the film images already in your head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hulk Smash(ing), 3 Jan 2004
By 
This review is from: Hulk (Mass Market Paperback)
I bought this book at an airport and, after seeing the fil, did not have very high hopes but i was desperate so i bought it.
After finishing the book I'd packed i reluctantly turned to the novelisation and i found myself reading more than i intended to each day.
The plot seemed to make more sense and i found myself caring more about the characters than in the movie.
Nothing against the movie - i loved it but once you've seen something you've seen it right? - WRONG! Reading Hulk i realised how wrong i was.
I have now decided that novelisations of movies are great idea and have read Spider-Man, Daredevil and i intend to read LXG and X-Men...
...Mow if i could just find X-Men 2 then that would be great!
