As a huge fan of the original film, I found this adaption of the script very well done. Any written adaption of a movie needs a great deal of filler to compensate for the lake of visual perspectives. This story gives great depth while still following the basic original film. A great addition for any 1933 King Kong fan.
All of the descriptive narrative through the fight sequences.
Kong and the T-rex.
The film was excellently made in 1933 and needs no more shallow remakes.
I expected a dramatization direct from the Lovelace novel. Instead, the audio book is something of a book and narration.
Brad Strickland no worries. He's taken the helm for John Bellaire's delightful series of children's books. I don't know about Joe DeVito.
Disappointment. The story from Merian Cooper is by far better than this. Read the book.
This book was written for the movie screen in mind and does not translate well to being read as a stand alone book. It's so corny it's almost funny, but not quite. I listened to it all, but did not enjoy it. A poorly written story all told.
