For what waits at the end of the journey is Kong.

Would you listen to Merian C. Cooper's King Kong again? Why?
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.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Merian C. Cooper's King Kong?
All of the descriptive narrative through the fight sequences.
Which scene was your favorite?
Kong and the T-rex.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The film was excellently made in 1933 and needs no more shallow remakes.
Any additional comments?
What disappointed you about Merian C. Cooper's King Kong?
I expected a dramatization direct from the Lovelace novel. Instead, the audio book is something of a book and narration.
Would you be willing to try another book from Joe DeVito and Brad Strickland ? Why or why not?
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.
Would you be willing to try another one of David Baker and the Full Cast Family ’s performances?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
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.
