The ending of the movie was much better, but I enjoyed the book as a whole. The rest of the book was better than the movie.

Be warned. This novel and narration is absolutely miserable. I am a lover of the genre, but never before have I heard a book so void of plot and a narrator so disconnected. The story provided absolutely no information that adds to the original movie story line. The entire novel is a series of introductions of childlike relationships that never develop. There is no rising action, no villian, no antagonist, no climax nor conclusion. To make it worse, the language and slang was from the wrong era and at times sounded like a cross between a Hardy Boys novel and High School Musical. Furthermore, the narrator made the characters sound like teenagers. It was simply dreadful. Get a refund. Be warned.

Well, if you are into epics it's okay. No villain per say. It kinda reads like The Hobbit. Battle to Battle. I found it the least interesting of my reads. However, be the end, it starts to get interesting and complex both emotionally and militarily. Honestly, the narrator was simple dreadful. His female voices were very annoying and really took away from the story. The narrator from the Mind Dimensions series would have helped bring the story alive early on. On a positive note the epic scale of the story was rather vast and cool. The fact that the aliens are never truly humanlike made the story unique and interesting.

Wow! Bill and Ted's Most Excellent Adventure with Tesla. Finally, the perfect mix of young urban potty mouth goof balls blended perfectly with a solid science fiction. Well done. Loved it.
