As a fan of the film I couldn't wait to read the book version and it didn't disappoint. It goes great alongside the film and I think even if you hadn't seen the screen. version this book is able to give you the imagery to need to sink into the world of Ashe Corven. A must for any 'Crow' fan

This book is brilliant. I originally thought it would be a rubbish novelization of the film, but it is based on the original screenplay by David S. Goyer. It's a great book. This is how the movie should have been. Well written and gripping.

HASH(0x91cf77c8) out of 5 stars Definetly better than the flick 7 Jun. 2000
By Ron - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read this book when it first came out and that was quite a while before the movie. I finished the book in about 3 days and when I was finished I figured that this movie would be better than the first...I was wrong. The book was great, went into great detail about everything and had such ironic ending. Watching the movie they cut so much out and changed the ending. If you didn't really like the movie get the book and see how it was all really suppose to be.

HASH(0x91cf781c) out of 5 stars What the movie should have been!! 2 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
What the movie lacked in depth, the novelization by Chet Williamson makes up for and then some. After reading the book I couldn't help but think "why wasn't the movie this deep?". I highly recommend anyone that has seen the movie pick up the novelization. I enjoyed the movie, but felt it had too many holes in it. Chet Williamson's rendering of the COA story helps to fill the void left by the movie.

The film was great IMO but this book is perfect. Its very interesting and passionate. This novelization goes into detail that the film (edit we saw) cut out. The characters have more 'time' to develop and it feels more like a living place then the movie. The characters have depth and actually have backgrounds, lives, they are not just cut outs in front of Vincent Perez.

Even if you hated the movie pick this novel up, its great.
HASH(0x91cf78f4) out of 5 stars You gotta pick one or the other 17 Nov. 2013

There were a few typos in the book that kind of irked me. The author continuously refers to Ash Corven as Ash Craven, and he does it only a few sentences apart. This goes on for multiple chapters in the middle of the book and I was just a little annoyed, other than that the book was way better than the movie.
HASH(0x91cf7e34) out of 5 stars A worthy sequel to The Crow, how the film should of been 15 Oct. 2013
By Jack Danya Kemplin - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Chet Williamson's book shows how wonderful The Crow: City of Angels could have been if the studio didn't re-edit it. It is a compelling, & beautiful unique story with a fulfilling & tragic ending. A very worthy sequel to The Crow.
