The film upon which this novelisation is based essentially succeeds due to some strong performances from some of the cast, some great lines and a superb and varied soundtrack. However, its plot, like many of the Dc and Marvel films of recent years, is somewhat lacking and not very memorable. Lacking the music, special effects and some of the acting, a large chunk of this novelisation is little more than a monotonous sequence of the Squad and the accompanying Seals battling through the city against wave after wave of mutants; albeit peppered with some great one-liners.

Where the novelisation has the advantage over the film is on its more developed portrayal of some of the characters the movie completely neglects to focus upon. Captain Boomerang was given a fairly bland and superficial portrayal in the film (much like his brief ‘villain of the week’ appearance in the television show ‘Arrow’), whereas as he is given a full characterisation and personality here. He obviously isn’t given as mu8ch attention as Deadshot and Harlequin overall but is clearly shown as an equal member of the Suicide Squad and with more dimensions to him.

Likewise, Croc, who generally stands arou8nd in the background of the film scenes saying abiou7t three lines, feels like a much more fully fledged member of the team. We actually get some background on him and a bit of the novelisation comes from his viewpoint.

Opposed to this though, Katana is given no more characterisation than the ‘making up the numbers’ role she plays in the film.

The novelisation also improves on the film version by giving the background to the characters in a more evolutionary way, especially in the case of the love affair between June and Flag.

I'm so glad I read this before seeing the film.

The reviews of how badly edited and cut the film is I knew the back stories wouldn't be in it which leaves a void in bonding with the characters.

I was really worried about the anticlimax of waiting 2 years for the film and the rumours about retakes to make it less dark and more Deadpool.

This book gives you the back stories and more, it gives you the opportunity to understand how the characters came to be in Belle Rive but also links in other films (Batman vs Superman now makes more sense) by explaining the meta human vs alien concept and why the battles were needed.

I know die hard comic fans will already know most of the plot but for someone who only watches Arrow, Flash, Legends OT & Gotham you get snippets of linked stories but it still means films like Suicide Squad have a responsibility to give you something to reference to and that is lacking in the film.

I enjoyed the book so much I finished it within 3 days! I was able to picture the characters really well thanks to the script style, it's just such a shame David Ayer wasn't able to keep the film as was originally intended.

I would of much rather the film being split into 2, one being the background and build up and the second being the actual war but hey, I'm not the one making mega bucks!!

For the price of a Starbucks coffee I can recommend the kindle version as it's a reasonable price for a new title.

I'm guessing the author got the original script to work with because this has a much darker tone, the character arcs are much stronger and the story flows much much better. It feels like the film teased in the comic-con trailer last year. Almost all of the rumoured list of cut scenes are in this and I can't think why most of them were cut because they give some much needed depth to some of the less flushed out characters in the SuSquad. There is a line from Batman that is so good I'm actually angry that it was cut. You'll know it when you read it.

This book is brilliant (bought for my daughter). She loves the film and wanted something more to add to the film. The great part about the book is that you get more of an understanding of the characters and their thoughts.

Comic Fans beware; this is a novelisation with not a comic strip in sight, not even any imagery.

Would highly recommend.

I had to give up on the Suicide Squad novel... Read like it was written by a primary school author eg. her flailing feet passed through the misty tendrils like the insubstantial substance that they are made of...
Or...
The thug held his automatic straight up, not turned at a 90 degree angle cos he knows that whilst it looks cool in the movies, it's a great way to break your wrist (not 100% verbatim, but couldn't bear to go back and copy word for word)

Well worth a read! I loved the film although it did seem rushed... the aesthetic was brilliant, and as I watched the film first, it made the book exiting and lively to read. The book is darker and you get to find out generally more about the characters and the story. I did get bored of the repetitive script from pages 199 to 249... it felt it went on forever, and the writing failed to inspire, but fight scenes I'm sure are hard to keep fresh. Sometimes I wanted to tell Flag and Deadshot to stop monotonously bickering to each other and JUST GET ON WITH IT! ...but thats just my opinion.
You get to learn more about Croc and Boomer from the book, than in the film. They add so much more to the story and give a good dynamic with the rest of them. Obviously the relationship of the Joker and Harley is a huge favourite for everyone, and the book does provide a better 'a little more twisted' take.
Overall loved it! I heard about the cuts they made to many of scenes in the movie and wanted to know what the original concept was. Reading the book didn't disappoint!
