HASH(0x946da498) out of 5 stars A good novelization for comic fans that don't have the time or desire to read all the comics 26 May 2012

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Greg Cox's novelization of Infinite Crisis I decided to try his novelization of 52 as well. It is the story of the DC Universe in the immediate aftermath of Infinite Crisis. For the most part I really enjoyed this book, the story of a DCU without not only the big three but seemingly missing any of the more well know heroes was a lot of fun. The book is really three separate stories. The first story being the seeming redemption on Black Adam and then his ultimate return to villainy. This was to me the most entertaining story and the one with the most action. I really enjoyed this story and found it to be thoroughly entertaining. The second story is of former Gotham City detective Renee Montoya and her transformation from cop to hero as well as the introduction of the new Batwoman. This story has three main principals and is the best plotted and has the most character development. A second story I really enjoyed. The third story is of the hero Booster Gold and his fall from grace and role in the reshaping of the DCU multiverse. This is a good story of Booster Gold for the first half of the book but is then seemingly forgotten only to be reintroduced at the end where it feels forced and out of place. While it could be argued that the return of the DCU multiverse was the entire point of this story in terms of the comics it feels forced and tacked on at the end of the novelization. I think I would have enjoyed this book even more if the whole story about Booster Gold had just been left out. Overall I really enjoyed this book but I am a former comic book fan who is fairly familiar with this world, I'm not sure someone not as familiar with the DCU would enjoy this as much as I did.
HASH(0x943cf894) out of 5 stars Batman missing 19 May 2014

The cover of this book has Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.. three characters who NEVER put an appearance in the novel. Cox works hard to bring the material an excitement, even without the normal heroes.. and his prose is crisp and clear. I have to say I think Cox is the best choice to adapt an action comic. He gets into the feelings of the characters. He describes the action well. His adapations are fun and exciting.

What marred this experience for me was following characters that I care little or nothing about. The Marvel Family was a stupid idea when it was created and continued in its stupid ways in this novel. I don't like Black Adam. Booster Gold was an interesting character.

Still, it was a fun book to read... for what it was...
