Challenging as a Movie and also as a Novelization

Prior to reading about this international graphic series, I had never heard or seen “Valerian”. Prior to seeing the movie I wanted to listen to this novelization first. The storyline is just OK, as it is simplistic and to some extent very predictable.
The reader and voice performance was very good and I finished this audiobook in a day and a half. My overall rating was a four stars only because of the reader.

Boooooring

It’s as if you were describing the movie exactly as it unfolded.. was hoping for additional incite and information. Was there a love story hidden somewhere?

very close to the movie

Having seen the movie, this audiobook let me visualize every part.
It was like watching the movie again, but in my head.

Well read and brought to life. Lots of action.

The sceneries were well described and brought vivid pictures in your mind. The reader altered her voice for different characters which helped follow the dialogues. It was a good story.

Naïve and shallow

I am very disappointed. Waste of time and money. I had an impression that someone just took a comic book and made it even shorter

Nothing special.

The narration was well done but the story had it's dull moments and cliches I found occasionally hard to overcome. The beginning was enjoyable and promised an exciting universe but began to fizzle towards the middle and end for me, that may be due to the long breaks I had while listening to the book or maybe not.
