  • As someone who grew up on G.I. Joe, I'm very critical of this new movie. So, I picked up the novelization to prepare myself. I only had two major issues with this, and honestly, I wavered between 2 and 3 stars. First, when I think of G.I. Joe, I automatically think to the theme song from the 80s. "Real American heroes. G.I. Joe is there." Except, out of the Joes, only three of them were American. This elite American fighting force has been turned into a global unit. Considering that G.I. Joe tau [...]


  • Disclaimer: I have not seen the movie that serves as the basis for this novel, so, if you're looking for a book/film comparison, this isn't the review you want.Unlike many kids of my generation, I didn't grow up with G.I. Joe; not only was I never a fan of the show, and never had any of the toys, but the only experience I really had with the franchise was an old-school computer game for my Commodore 64, which we got rid of just after my seventh birthday. I remember the character of Snake Eyes, a [...]


  • Over the summer I saw the movie G.I.Joe:Rise of Cobra so I decided to read the book to see if the book version is the same as the movie version. This book is about a guy named Duke who is the leader of a tea from NATO. Their job is to deliver a case full of high tech weapons. Along their way they were attacked by another group who is trying to get the weapons back to the inventor of the weapons so that he can sell it on the black market to my money. Then a group called the G.I.Joe which is later [...]


  • First off, I'll say that G.I. Joe was a big part of my childhood. This isn't it. There aren't even that many points of resemblance between the two, beyond some character and organizational names. Even if I hadn't just had my childhood memories assaulted by the book, I wouldn't be impressed. The work is sloppy at best, with frequent redundancies and inconsistent characterization. I haven't seen the movie as yet, but can only hope that the sight of explosions will help to cover the glaring deficie [...]


  • First off, let me state that this book is not literature. It is a quick, fun read by an excellent author.I would recommend this book if you liked the movie and you had the urge to read it. Don't expect it to change your life or even give you much more detail than the movie. Using that criteria it is an excellent read.
